MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 40-year-old woman charged with trying send a puppy through the mail has been deemed incompetent.

Stacey Champion was supposed to go on trial last July on two misdemeanor charges related to trying to send her dog “Guess” through the mail in January 2011, as a gift.

The trial was canceled and Champion was deemed incompetent. All charges — two counts of mistreatment of animals — have been dismissed on a basis of mental deficiency.

“Guess” was adopted earlier this year.

So many people were interested in adopting the pup that there was a drawing to pick the pet owner.
