When ex-boyfriend sold dog, Colorado Springs woman filed charges

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A Colorado Springs woman said she has filed charges against her ex-boyfriend because he sold her dog without her permission.


"She should still be here with me right now," Melissa Shive told KRDO-TV.

Shive said she agreed to let her ex-boyfriend watch the dog, Nevaeh, for a few days after the two separated in November.

Shive says when she asked for the dog back, he texted her, "Hurts, doesn't it?"

Shive called the El Paso County Sheriff's Office.

"The charges that I pressed against him are domestic violence theft," said Shive. "The police officer determined that this was a domestic violence theft case because he was intentionally keeping my dog from me to hurt me."

The ex-boyfriend told KRDO-TV that he had to sell the dog, but didn't explain why.
