Family pug seized, sold on eBay by German town over unpaid taxes

A family in Germany was left brokenhearted after town authorities seized their pedigree pug over unpaid debts and sold the dog on eBay. The family owed her town of Ahlen money, including some in unpaid pet taxes. The town sold the pug, Edda, for just €750 ($853). Edda’s new owner is now seeking $2048 in damages from the town because Edda has a number of health issues that were not disclosed.

Anyone trying to do this to my pets would be met at the property line with firearms drawn. This is disgusting. Shame on Germany.

Watch out Count Dankula. They will sieze Buddha and sell him for your unpaid fine.

the pedigree pug was her most valuable asset aside from necessities such as transportation and housing. her debt was partially unpaid pet taxes and fees. not exactly a leap

Can anyone else just picture a tax man just running up and grabbing the dog and running away?

I hope the new owner wins the case, then gives the dog back to the original owner, and gets a bit of money out of the whole ordeal.
