Liz Pendleton was casually browsing Craigslist last Saturday when she came across a dog adoption ad that terrified her.
Driving nonstop from University City, Missouri to Morrisonville, Illinois, Pendleton arrived just in time, and was handed the dog no questions asked or answered.
Pendleton contacted the local police concerning the ad, but it's unclear if any charges will be filed.
Though the dog, whom Pendleton has named Buck, is safe for now, its new owner says she can't provide him with the permanent home he so desperately needs.
