Two Orange County families have found themselves embroiled in a canine custody battle after a dog ran away while its original owners were out of town for a funeral, then was adopted out to another family.
An Anaheim woman said her family owned “Olympus” the Labrador for four years. But when she left him with a family member to attend her son’s funeral, he ran away.
When she returned a week later, she learned Olympus had been picked up by an animal shelter and ultimately adopted out to another family.
