PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police arrested an Oregon State University student who has refused to return a dog she found last year to its original owner.
Twenty-year-old Jordan Biggs was booked into a Corvallis jail on a theft charge Friday and later released.

Gentlemen of the Jury, how do ye find?
NOT GUILTY! (The pooch, that is!)
she is one disgusting b...tch! ( not the dog.)
this pos also has a fake service dog jacket on him...Obama’s generation..no morals, no conscience, law breaker...I can hear her now “Whaaat-EVER!”
Put them 30 paces apart. Place the dog in the middle. Neither owner gets to hold bacon or anything like that. Let the dog choose.
Dig my Solomon wisdom.
Did you even read the article?
Multiple witnesses testified that the original owner abused the dog (including urinating on the animal and forcing the dog to inhale pot smoke).
She found the lost dog, tried to find the owner, failed, then took the dog home. She’s given the dog vet care and special training.
Now she’s in jail for refusing to return the dog to the jerk former owner.
I’d go to jail before I turned my dog over to an abusive jerk like that, too.
I remember my wife and I adopted a dog from the local county pound a few years ago. About a week after adopting the dog, my wife called me at work crying and crying.
It seems like someone had contacted the pound about their missing dog, our dog. And the guy missing it, he was disabled. He was upset that the dog had been adopted out. but he was told the dog had been at the pound for too long for him to claim it back. Well the pound said we could legally keep the dog, but wanted to let us know about the circumstances.
After calming my wife down, I told her the only right thing to do was to give it back. If the circumstances were reversed, we would hope the new owners would give back our dog. This was my wife’s first dog ever. She was in love with this dog.
Well anyway, we decided we had to give her back. It would not be fair to keep the dog from its rightful owner. We later got another dog (puppy) from the pound. so we had a happy ending.
If the reports are true how the original owner treated this dog, I side with the young woman getting custody.
Ooops. i apologize.
No, I didn’t read the article. .. just reacted.
thanks for the reminder to read the article first!
In your case, it was the right thing to do, but in this case, if the dog had been abused, the new owner should keep it.
To mock a woman’s looks is a not the act of a gentlemen.
I see nothing wrong with the young lady’s looks. The Freeper may be having eye problems. We know he has social judgment problems.
Easy to say, impossible to prove.
The puzzler is that everybody professes eternal affection to a pet, but never bothers to chip it. Is the dog chipped now?
Not everyone agrees about the safety of chipping. I know there are several Freepers who swear they had pets who developed tumors at the chipping site, and I’ve heard it elsewhere as well. I haven’t done the research to have an opinion on it myself, but that could be one reason not to chip.
My four cats aren’t, simply because they’re purely indoors and have no desire to go outside which makes the chance of an accidental escape very, very slim. Then it becomes a matter of which do I feel is riskier....the chance there’s something to the cancer connection, or the chance of extraordinary circumstances such as a fire or tornado that could potentially panic them into fleeing any way they can, vs merely hiding under a bed or somesuch.
