Two Family Dogs Found Dead Together After Disappearing Separately


Losing anyone in the family is difficult, and this goes for the four-legged members of the family, too. The Brandywine Valley SPCA in Pennsylvania announced that there was a $1000 reward to anyone who could provide information about a possible animal cruelty case.

A family had two dogs disappear from their backyard in Downingtown. The lost and found team for the SPCA was on the search, but could not find them.

The family lost Buddha first. The dog had gone missing, and when they were out looking for their dog, Oliver turned up missing as well. It is likely that Oliver went to search for his companion.

A few hours later, a crew worker made the phone call about what he saw on Sawmill Road. The two dogs were laying lifeless, and the owner was notified. A report was then filed. The site was absolutely horrific, and they know that it was a case of animal cruelty – and it’s possible that whoever did this kidnap the dogs from the backyard.

Buddha and Oliver’s family have lived in Downingtown on Sawmill Road for over 13 years. It is a quiet neighborhood where nothing bad ever really happens. The dogs were the sweetest and would never harm anyone.

The Brandywine Valley SPCA is now warning all homeowners that there may be someone out there who is looking to harm their fur babies. Everyone is asked to keep an eye on their pets and if there is anyone who knows information about what happened to Buddha and Oliver, they are being requested to contact the APS humane law enforcement officer.


This is such a sad story. No one should ever have to lose their dogs, particularly to an animal cruelty case. The family did absolutely nothing wrong. They had their dogs in the backyard, like they do often. However, someone apparently came in and stole their dog – and then the other dog. This would have been bad enough, but the scene on the road was truly horrific, and was done violently – and possibly to prove a point, though no one knows what that point would be.

The BVSPCA urges all pet parents to keep a close eye on their pets and anyone wit any information about what happened to Buddha and Oliver, are requested to contact the APS Humane Law Enforcement Officer at 484-302-0019. Share away, people.
