Craigslist Ad: Soldier’s Ex Sold His Dog, Help This Serviceman Get ‘Baxster’ Back

Craigslist Ad

A Craigslist ad in Colorado Springs, Colorado, tells a particularly heartbreaking story. But you can help make it right. Especially if you live around that area.

The ad was placed by Robert Gabbert, who is listed as the contact for replies. So we are assuming that Robert is the smiling serviceman pictured in the ad, and above. The story he tells proves that, as much as we’d like to think they do, not everyone supports the troops — even the people closest to them.

After all, there’s not a many things lower to do to a guy who’s currently deployed than to sell his dog while he’s away.

But that is the story told in the ad, which was placed earlier this week. If you want to help, click on this link to see the ad.

In case you can’t read the text in that graphic, here’s the story that the ad tells:

“I am currently deployed and my ex sold my dog. I just found out and i am trying to find the people (person) who bought him. I will pay anything to get him back. His name is Baxster and he is a Shiba Inu. I do not have my phone with me. You can email me. The phone number is my mom’s. She is helping me locate him. If you have any information PLEASE give us a call or an email.”

Here’s another picture of the very adorable Baxster.

While Gabbert offers to “pay anything” to get Baxster back, here’s hoping that he doesn’t have to pay anything and that whoever bought the dog — unwittingly, we assume — would do the right thing and return the little guy to his rightful human companion.

We’d also hope that the “ex” would think better of it and return the money to whoever bought the dog. Whatever happens in a relationship, let’s keep the pets out of it. Okay?

We’ll be keeping an eye on the situation for any updates on the story of the soldier and his missing dog.

    She basically stole his dog and sold it. Bring her up on charges. Make her give all the info on who she sold the dog to. Hope they're reunited.

    If my ex did that to me I would pay someone to to torture them until he/she gave me a name….I divorced my lsdt husband over my dog….

    What a BITCH… I love my dog and would hate for someone to do that to me. I am not a vindictive type of person but I really hope what goes around comes around real quick for this Bitch.

    This is yet another reason why I do not trust women. I
    know all women are like this, but a lot of you are.

    How could anyone do this to someone's companion, and best friend? She could at least given the name, and address of the individual who took the dog, to him, so he could contact them at a later time.

    The person buyn it received stolen property. If they refuse to giv him bac then he can take them to court and prove his luv to a judge. I'd say they better do the rgt tng especially since he's more than willing to compensate them.

    I've had similar experiences with guys. More like human nature than just men or women.

    They found the family who has the dog and they are not returning it. KOAA has the latest on the story.
    Sad.

    What a Bitch! She should be charged with the sale of stolen property and also by taking the money from the people/person with robbery .I know that it will be hard for the kids if they fell in love with the dog maybe the soldier could start a fund so that he can buy the kids a new puppy.After all he had the dog for 3 years.
