San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill told KSBY News this morning he believes the current owners of Annie the dog intend to return her to her original owner Chuck Hoage.
Hoage told KSBY News today that he is not able to discuss any new developments, but he remains hopeful he will get Annie back.
Over the weekend, a woman who claimed to be Annie's new owner contacted KSBY News via e-mail and said Annie will be returned Hoage.
Hoage, who lives in rural Arroyo Grande, has been trying to get the dog back for weeks. Annie was spooked by a gunshot and wound up at the county animal shelter. She was then adopted out without Hoage's knowledge.
Her new family has refused to return her, saying they did nothing wrong.
In the meantime, the public has rallied behind Hoage by organizing community protests and setting up a Facebook page.
Hill, who had a brief email contact with new owners, said they are upset by the public attention. Hill is hopeful the exchange will happen this week.
