Some friend.

This is simply heartbreaking:

Brandon Harker returned home from an eight month deployment in Afghanistan to find his dog Oakley was missing, and possibly sold on Craigslist. The soldier had asked a friend to take care of his 2-year-old purebred yellow Labrador retriever while he was deployed. When he contacted the friend to pick him up, he was told the dog had been given away.

With any luck, somebody will spot the dog so he can be returned to his rightful owner:

Harker’s Craigslist ad is here. Hopefully we can update later and add a happy ending to this story.
