Posh Maids Sued After Robin Lohre Finds Dead Dog Under Dining Room Table

Posh Maids, a Denver cleaning company, is facing a lawsuit after a cleaning job went awry on August 17.

The Denver Post reports when Robin Lohre hired the company to clean her house, she specifically asked the company about their dog policies. Lohre was concerned her 18-month-old dog might be a nuisance, but was assured the pooch, 'Ruthie,' could stay.

Lohre and her 6-year-old daughter left the house to go run errands. When they returned after the cleaning had finished, the two discovered Ruthie dead underneath their dining room table. According to KMGH, Posh Maids told Lohre the dog had been hit by a car but was alive when the employees left the home.

The employees hadn't attempted to report the accident to Lohre or take the animal to a vet.

The Animal Law Center, the firm behind the suit, claims negligence and emotional distress.
