That’s because the puppy had an unspecified health condition, as Sardi told news agencies. Given Sasha’s young age, she hadn’t received any vaccinations and was vulnerable to illnesses. “She’s little, she’s not supposed to interact with other dogs,” Sardi described.
Sardi said, “She might get sick if the right thing is not done.” No doubt that would have been complication enough for potential dog nappers. But there was something else to consider too: Sasha had been microchipped. If she had to be taken to a veterinarian, she could be tracked.
