Desperate search for a family’s beloved Cavoodle puppy named Tigerlily after she was ‘SNATCHED by her own pet sitter’

A devastated dog owner calls for the return of her beloved Cavoodle puppy named Tigerlily after she was reportedly snatched from her pet sitter.
The pet owner, known only as Natasha, paid an elderly woman to take care of her dog while working.
Natasha is a health professional and her workload has increased since the coronavirus pandemic started.
Natasha believed her beloved pet was being cared for while she was working, but when she returned to her grandma apartment on the central Gold Coast on Tuesday, Tigerlily was gone.
Dog owner Natasha (pictured with Tigerlily) is said to have stolen her dog from her landlord, who thought her tenant was not qualified to own a dog because she had a job
She hired a team of researchers called Arthur & Co. Pet Concierge to track down her beloved dog.
Private investigator Anne-Marie told Daily Mail Australia that the part-time pet sitter Tigerlily may have snatched up because she was concerned about the dog’s well-being.
“In recent months, the pet sitter has become quite oppressive to our customer,” she said.
“She was quite insulting and said things like ‘you are too selfish to own a dog’ and ‘you should not have a dog unless you are willing to be with them 24/7’.”
Anne-Marie said Tigerlily was not neglected and was ‘very much loved’.
She said Natasha was very concerned about Tigerlily, who recently had sex surgery and other procedures on her paws that require further attention from the vet.
Natasha and Anne-Marie requested that the dog be dropped off at a local vet as soon as possible.
After getting tired of her landlord’s treatment, Natasha gave her up two weeks in advance to leave, after which she reportedly demanded ‘custody’ over Tigerlily
Private investigator Anne-Marie said when Natasha’s friend confronted the landlord with the dog she reportedly told him, “Tigerlily will be fine and Tash won’t buy another dog.”
