SODDY-DAISY, Tenn. — Soddy-Daisy is suing an Arkansas man for selling it a drug dog three times older than advertised and with multiple health problems.
In a Hamilton County Circuit Court lawsuit filed last week, Soddy-Daisy city attorney Sam Elliott wrote that the dog, a Labrador named Lucy, was purchased by the city for $4,950 and delivered to police in July 2011.
The city is suing for $6,856.37, which includes the price of the dog and veterinary bills incurred so far.
