Carmen Pham from Labrador on the Gold Coast was heading to Vietnam and had asked family friends to looking after her four-year-old pet corgi Haku until she returned.
The couple enthusiastically agreed but when Ms Pham returned in March and asked for Haku back, they requested the dog stay them for a week due to loneliness in lockdown.
