Britney Spears’ Stolen Dogs Reportedly Taken By Employees Worried About Their Health
Though she’s a talented artist, Britney Spears seems to be in the news for everything but her singing.
But the singer’s high-profile battle against her 13-year conservatorship, which has inspired multiple documentaries and a #FreeBritney social media campaign, took a strange and ominous turn when Spear’s two dogs were reportedly stolen.

Britney initially blamed her father, Jamie Spears, for the theft, according to TMZ. After all, the elder Spears had been forced to step down as his daughter’s conservator. Stealing her dogs could be a way to get even.
But as the days passed, additional reporting suggested the singer herself might be to blame. According to Spears’ housekeeper, the singer neglected her dogs to the point where employees felt compelled to remove them from her care.

Spear’s housekeeper rushed the dogs to the emergency vet after finding the dogs dehydrated and close to death, TMZ reported.
According to the housekeeper, the dogs were regularly fed table scraps, even though one pup had known digestive issues. But human foods are dangerous for dogs, and both of Spears’ dogs became very ill.

The vet was equally alarmed by the dogs’ condition, leading Britney’s dog sitter to assume care of the animals. Spears was not informed of her dogs’ whereabouts for weeks, leading her to believe they had been stolen.
Now the dogs are reportedly back with Spears–and we hope the singer has learned an important lesson. Dogs should never be fed table scraps, no matter how much they beg. Instead of firing her housekeeper, Spears should be grateful to the employee who noticed her dogs needed emergency care.
