Christina Grapo said her family adopted Buck and adores the Bloodhound.
"Buck has become a very important part of our family and we are hopeful that he will get to stay right where he is. He is happy and healthy and we will give him a safe and loving home for as long as he remains with us."
She also provided pictures of the dog.
Has Christina Grapo ever bothered to speak with Army Private Katelyn Gallagher or is she simply taking the word of Angelo Sullo, who either sold her the dog or gave it to her? Sullo has been charged with theft and she had better return the stolen property or she is facing charges as well.
Army Private Katelyn Gallagher filed a police report in December saying she left Buck with a family friend when she went for military training at the end of May. She said when she returned home for leave, Angelo Sullo, the man she left Buck with, told her he gave the dog away.
Sullo has plead not guilty to a misdemeanor petty theft charge in Cleveland Municipal Court, saying the matter is a misunderstanding and he expects to be vindicated.
Gallagher said she has had Buck since he was a puppy and wants him back.
