From the New York Post today:
The Manhattan man who allegedly “flipped out” last month and lost Sugar — a beloved pit bull mix who has become a social media celebrity — has been outed in court papers as Tommy Doerr, a 46-year-old East Village resident.
Devastated dog owner Morgan Bogle, 33, is suing Doerr for negligence in Manhattan Supreme Court.
She went to court against Doerr “because he refused to speak to me,” Bogle told The Post.
“I have tried to play detective for three and a half weeks, and the reality is we just don’t know” what happened to the tan-and-white, 4-year-old Sugar, said Bogle.
Bogle is seeking $15,000 damages from Doerr, as well as the return of Sugar, who went missing on Feb. 23 under mysterious circumstances.
Doerr had been Sugar’s dog walker for three years.
