I feel for you...so very sorry! I, too, get very disheartened by the callousness of human beings towards other people and other animals.....I tell my dog he's lucky he's not human.

I'm sorry for your loss. I live in a rural farming area where we do have a problem with loose dogs A LOT. Several years ago one such group of loose dogs killed several cattle and were shot.

I hope you will in the future make sure your dogs go to great homes and it won't happen again. Large dogs can be scary.

I'm so sorry this happened. That must have been so shocking. I get awfully discouraged about people too, but there are so many out there trying to help too, and I try to focus on that. Do keep what Hopes said in mind, you can't help the dogs from jail (although I know I'd feel the same way you do).

Unbelievable! I'm so sorry this happened to you and this poor little pup who paid the ultimate price. I could understand your anger and would be the same way. Hope that guy gets what's coming to him one day.

An 80 POUND puppy!!!!!!
It's sad it happened but please an 80 POUND puupy can appear threatening to a person by its sheer size!


Now, I have to ask, what is your feeling towards this so called rescue your partner gave it to? Afterall, how in gods name does a legitimate rescue organization not check out any other rescues they are using!? You complain they don't check the applicants, well you ddin;t check that rescue neither so there ius some fault in your hands.

Once again I;m sorry about the dogs death but reality is this was an 80 POUND dog and how it appeared to that property owner on their property is not something you personally have any knowkedge about!

Nevermind the fact that, yes, the neighbor shot the dog, but feeling like you want to go shoot them??

She was to bring him back today.

Her psycho neighbor said the dog crossed his property this morning, and shot him with his rifle.

WTF is wrong with people???!!? He is on the slab and he had to be surrendered to the State Lab, with a chance of not getting the body back. So he dies like this, and I can't even cremate him with dignity. I HATE PEOPLE.
Well, unless the dog attacked him, he could be in big trouble, with discharge of weapon and animal cruelty.

IMO...I am thinking their must have been a history of problems between the two neighbors.

Or, this did not happen and she just does not want to give up the dog.

I would have to see the dog.

All depends on where you live, I live in rural NE GA and shooting a large dog (80lbs according to the OP) that come on to your property would not be a problem...we've got leash laws here but I know I'd feel VERY uncomfortable if I was on my property and a stray 80lbs dog that is a GSD mix came near me.

Few people realize that fluffy is fine and dandy sweetie pie while at home but left to wander can turn into something totally different.
