NM woman finds euthanized dog alive with new owner

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque woman who signed away her Chihuahua to be euthanized four months ago after it was viciously attacked by another dog has discovered that her dog is alive.

And 1-year-old Lola the Chihuahua has a new owner.

KOB-TV reports that Lisa Gossett she was told by a veterinarian that the outlook was grim for her injured dog and suggested that the Chihuahua be euthanized. So Gossett said she signed away the dog.

But she got a call this from a company that programs the ID microchips that go into pets. The company said a woman was requesting to switch Lola's chip over to a new owner.

The vet had turned Lola over to a foundation that rehabilitates dogs.

Gossett wants an apology and refund for the euthanization fee.
