We would often hear of singer Justin Bieber getting into trouble with the law. And it seems the fruit didn’t fall too far from the tree. Now, the singer’s much-admired father, Jeremy Bieber, got the police cars’ spotlight for allegedly throwing off his son’s bulldog from a second-story balcony last year. Read on for further details.
In an interview with TMZ, dog trainer Trevor Dvernichuk was hired last year by the father and son to train an American bulldog they just took and named Karma. Apparently, the dog definitely needed the training for it being a rather rough animal.
While it was living at the Biebers’ family home in Canada, Karma bit Justin’s little brother Jaxon. This greatly angered Jeremy and made him throw the dog off the balcony into a snow bank. Fortunately, the dog ended up being all right after the fall. Jeremy then told Trevor to take the dog and not to return it to him until it is properly trained and has learned how to socialize among people.
Since this incident, Karma has been living with Dvernichuk under his care and expense, thus practically deeming it to be abandoned by its owners. But now, after hearing news of the trainer telling people of his abandoning the dog, Jeremy claims that Dvernichuk stole the dog and will have him arrested unless the dog is returned.
Though he is concerned for the dog after the “getting thrown off the balcony” incident, the dog trainer does not want to be involved in any legal battles with the Biebers. He is very much willing to return the dog now that its owners have decided to get it back.
However, on TMZ Live, Dvernichuk stated that lawyers may be involved, and he is hoping for compensation for taking care of the dog all this time.
For concerned dog lovers out there, what do you think should be done for Karma? Post your comments regarding this incident below.
