Couple Trusts Their Puppy To a Pet Sitter But The Security Cam Leaves Them Horrified
She has been caught on camera (Video)
Amanda and Bryce Horton were horrified when they logged on to their home security camera to see their pet sitter throwing their 10-week-old puppy Lucy to the ground. The couple, who had hired the woman to look after their dog, were away at the time, but received a motion alert from their security camera which went straight to their phone. Feeling helpless 90 miles from their home in Victorville, California, the couple couldn’t believe what they were seeing.
“She is such a little puppy, but not only does she throw her but after she throws her, she stands, like, ‘What are you going to do now?’” said Amanda. Bryce was able to speak directly to the woman through his phone in real-time and said: “Hey, we saw what you did to our puppy. You need to get your things and leave our house now.’” The couple then raced home as fast as they could. “She just laid there. We kept watching the video when we were driving home. And she wasn’t moving a whole lot. The whole time we were thinking, ‘She is probably really hurt,’” Bryce said.
“It’s heartbreaking because the reason we use a pet sitter is because we love our pet and we don’t want to leave her unattended for very long because she is a baby. So we trusted someone to come into our home and look after a pet that we consider a family member.” Amanda and Bryce had met the pet sitter using the popular app Rover, though they asked the sitter to watch Lucy that time themselves. Rover issued a statement: “The activity depicted in this video is shocking and appalling. We have permanently deactivated this sitter from our platform.” Watch the video, the couple said they posted the video online to warn people to be cautious about pet sitters.
