A Jersey City man was “living a nightmare” as he searched for days for his beloved pooch who mysteriously vanished with a dog-sitter — only to get a call from a vet that the dog died while supposedly in the woman’s care.
Diego Chaves said he had left his mini Goldendoodle, Mac, with a woman whom he believed to be a professional sitter named Alyssa outside of a high-rise in Jersey City on Friday morning.
“In the beginning, everything was great with the sitter. She sent us pictures, gave us updates. And it really took a turn Monday morning,” Chaves told News12.
But when he tried to retrieve his pet, the woman was uncooperative, Chaves said.
“Living a nightmare right now. I was waiting to pick up Mac this morning when the sitter stopped responding,” he wrote in a since-deleted post on Instagram.
