The OP asks:
The OP explained she needed someone to watch her dog while she was on vacation:
The OP's sister offered to dogsit her puppy, but she lost it while the OP was away:
Sister told her he ran off, but shortly after the OP saw pictures of her puppy on social media:
The OP contacted the family to return her dog, but it turned out her sister sold him:
After confronting the sister, the OP took her sister's dog hostage:
Now, the OP wonders if her reaction was wrong:
If the dog is chipped, the OP can report it stolen to take it back
Another Redditor agreed
The OP responded:
The OP should report it
The OP didn't have the right to steal her sister's dog
The OP should have taken legal action, not revenge
It's the proper way to manage the situation
Redditors told the OP that although her sister sold her dog, she didn't have the right to steal hers. The only suitable way to handle the situation was to call the police and report the case.
Therefore, they advised the OP to return her sister's dog and to report what happened to hers.
