Woman who stole, euthanized neighbor’s dog receives 3-6 month prison sentence

A Pittsburgh woman who was convicted of stealing her neighbor’s dog and having it euthanized was sentenced to three to six months in prison, followed by 18 months of probation Friday.

“There is justice. Thank you, Jesus. Go through the courts first, because it does work,” said Mark Boehler, Gisele Paris’ neighbor.

Paris, of Spring Hill, was found guilty in December of theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and cruelty to animals.

Paris took the dog, a Siberian husky named Thor, from Boehler’s yard on Thanksgiving Day, 2013.

On Feb. 10, 2014, she had the dog euthanized in her home by a licensed veterinarian, claiming that the dog was sick and neglected.

While undergoing treatment for stage 3 cancer, Boehler pleaded for the safe return of his dog until learning he had been euthanized.

After Paris was sentenced Friday, Boehler said, “I had a lot of things that I had to say to her, and trying to get them out right without being abusive verbally, it wasn’t easy.”

A relative of Paris said a website has been created to tell Paris’ side of the story. [Click HERE]
