A Las Vegas man is upset after he says someone stole his dog.

Eddy Pais says it was planned out by his neighbors on social media.

Pais came home from work Monday night and his dog wasn't in the backyard or the house near Fort Apache and Gomer roads. He was out until 4 a.m. looking for Sadie the German Shepard Malinois mix.

"I actually noticed that the gate was ... the rocks were kind of in a V cut like kind of like a triangle as if somebody pushed the gate," Pais said.

Ever since he got the dog a year and a half ago, Pais says he has had issues with his neighbor. He says she's called Animal Control on him eight times for allegedly neglecting Sadie by keeping her outside for lengthy periods of time with no food and no water.

"She has never came and told me anything about Sadie or her concerns," Pais said. "She's never expressed her concerns to me."

Pais says the neighbor also took the concerns to Nextdoor.

"She literally convinced these people online that I was abusing my dog and they were saying they were going to come together and come get my dog, like make me give my dog up," he said.

The original post was from January and the comments continued all the way up until last week when Sadie was missing. The post has now been deleted.

Pais was never cited by Animal Control during any of their visits. He says he takes good care of his dog and their favorite activity is to go kayaking.

"I just want her to come back so we can continue all that," he sad. "All those fun times and stuff."
