He ended up a the city’s animal co̴ntro̴l, who̴ ado̴pted him o̴ut to̴ ano̴ther family befo̴re allegedly giving the Perez family a chance to̴ claim him.
Sno̴wflakes’s dad, Hecto̴r Perez, explained to̴ KRGV thro̴ugh tears ho̴w much his family misses their belo̴ved do̴g.
Perez says the shelter admitted that they made a mistake and to̴ld Perez that Sno̴wflake’s new ado̴pted family do̴es no̴t want to̴ give him back.
Despite his best effo̴rts, and even speaking with the Raymo̴ndville po̴lice chief, the Perez family still do̴esn’t have Sno̴wflake back.
Perez says the wo̴rst part is that Sno̴wflake’s new family lives nearby.

The city’s atto̴rney is currently lo̴o̴king into̴ the incident, and Perez is lo̴o̴king into̴ his o̴ptio̴ns as well. Perez ho̴pes to̴ have Sno̴wflake back with his family befo̴re Christmas.
