is it true the dogs were returned to the owner? if so....why?
The reason is obvious.....they were his property. It is written some where, I believe it was the US Constitution that the Government can not seize one's property. Believe it or not, dogs are considered property of the individual. Even though you may consider them a part of the Family.
