We'll never know what would have happened if the guy had asked for his dog back. IF the guy broke into the shelter, I have no problem with him receiving the appropriate legal punishment.
I'm tired of buying cat food and seeing a homeless person walk up to the pet store counter to ask the cashier if there's a place in town that offers free veterinary care. If it were up to me, I'd illegalize pet ownership for homeless people. If you have trouble taking care of your basic needs (gee, shelter is one of 'em), then maybe you're not in the financial position to be feeding, sheltering and providing medical care for the animal. Everyone is fretting over the guy, but ignoring the real victim in this story. Give a damn about the dog.
