Zeffer appeared in court for the fourth time July 2 to answer to the charges laid against her in April.

During the court appearance, her legal representative asked that the matter be adjourned until next month so the new charges against her can be dealt with at the same time.

Zeffer is due to appear in court once again Aug. 6 at 10 a.m. in Courtroom E.


The incident that led to the original charges against Zeffer — the April 9 theft of Partner, a German shepherd — was caught on video cameras placed around the outside of the property.

When social media tips led to the alleged dog-napper, the couple who own the dog filmed the dramatic confrontation on their cellphone.

In the days after the incident, Zeffer contacted Northern Life, and said she took the dog out of concern for its health.

A 19-year-old man is also facing charges in connection to the same incident. He was charged with break, enter and theft, breach of recognizance and breach of probation.
