German authorities reportedly seize family's dog, sell it on eBay

Officials in Germany have defended their decision to seize an indebted family's pet pug and sell it on eBay, saying the move was a last resort because authorities were unable to find anything else to take.

The town then sold Edda to a new owner from a private account on eBay for just €750 ($853.53).

The pug, named Edda, was initially seized in the German town of Ahlen after her owners fell behind on city debt repayments.

Most European countries got rid of their "dog tax" decades ago, but Germany continues to impose it because it brings in millions of euros a year, The Local Germany reported.

Jordan agreed to the sale because Edda's classified ad promised a clean bill of health - but before long, she learned that the pug had various medical problems.

The situation became even more confusing when it was revealed that Jordan purchased the dog in December after speaking to a member of the Ahlen administration, because she was suspicious of the low price.

The Honda Classic used to be after the World Golf Championship event, but that changed when it moved from Doral to Mexico City. Recorded his best result in the Honda previous year , when he led with an opening 66 and finished in a tie for fifth.

In another confusing element of the story, local media outlets originally reported that the town of Ahlen first considered seizing the wheelchair belonging to the disabled husband of Edda's original owner, as it was first thought to be the most valuable asset the family owned.

Jordan said Edda has since needed four operations, including an emergency operation over Christmas.

However, as it belonged to an employee insurance association and not their property, they decided on taking the dog instead.

"I know now that Edda is in good hands", she said, but added her three children miss the dog.

She admitted she owed unpaid dog taxes, but said: "What happened, that was absolutely not okay".
