So said a Bei­jing res­i­dent sur­named Xiao. On De­cem­ber 19, 2014, Xiao brought his dog “Deng­deng” to a pet foster cen­ter in Bei­jing and paid 10,000 yuan ($1,443) for one year’s ser­vice. Dur­ing Spring Fes­ti­val of 2015, Xiao took Deng­deng back home for one week, then left the dog at the cen­ter and dis­ap­peared. Fail­ing to make con­tact with Xiao, the cen­ter sued him in court in March of 2017. When the court ruled to sell Deng­deng by auc­tion, Xiao heard the news from a friend. He con­tacted the court and agreed to take Deng­deng back in two months. Xiao also paid back the foster care and food fees for the past three years, which to­taled 63,310 yuan.
