A family in western Ohio may soon have to wait until they can buy a food stamp.
The state Department of Human Services has issued a “temporary” permit to an Ohio man for a puppy that is supposed to be an American food stamp recipient, the Associated Press reported on Wednesday.
The puppy is a two-year-old male named Charlie.
The dog’s owner, Randy Stroud, said he hopes the dog will be able to find a new home soon.
The department issued a temporary permit for Charlie, an American Food Stamp recipient, in March after a petition was created for him to get one.
The Department of Health and Human Services said in a statement that the Department of Agriculture has not yet determined how long the puppy will be allowed to stay in the county.
