Sheriff outraged: vindictive nanny allegedly stole family dog and released her after being fired
Correlation does not imply causation, but when a Florida family’s dog suddenly went missing, they had a pretty good feeling about what had happened to it.
On Wednesday, a family in Fort Myers fired their longtime nanny Eileen Schultz.
Although the reason for her dismissal was not revealed, she must have felt quite upset about it, as she allegedly grabbed the family’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Lady before making her final departure.

Schultz was found at a hotel in the area, but when detectives found her, she was alone and said she didn’t pick up Lady. Despite her claim, hotel staff told authorities that they had seen Schultz with dog previously.
“Schultz then told detectives that she took Lady to a hotel but changed her mind and wanted Lady back with her family,” Lee County Sheriff’s Office shared in a statement. facebook post coverage of the incident.
“Deputies learned that instead of returning the dog to the house, Schultz left the dog in the Penzance Blvd & Caisson Lane area. Several detectives and cops searched the area all night looking for the Lady.”
Luckily, someone from the local community found Lady and took care of her. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has shared a touching video of the moment the lady was brought back into her owner’s arms.
“I am disgusted by the actions of this woman who stole an innocent dog and abandoned it on the side of the road,” said Sheriff Carmine Marceno.
“Thanks to the dedication of my deputies and detectives, we were able to find the dog, Lady, and reunite her with her family.”
Many people commented on the post to thank officers for their work and condemn the actions of the thief.
“Great job! God bless you and the beautiful woman who took the Lady in and kept her!” written by one person.
“This terrible woman probably never dreamed that she would quickly fall into the spotlight!” said the other.
Meanwhile, Schultz was charged with grand larceny, which is a felony.
