  1. Why is it assumed the dog was abandoned? Perhaps he was stolen and dumped. Someone may be looking for him.

  2. I am sickened. These people should be shot, in jail, plus face the same exact cruelty. People are heartless and crazy. Stiffer penalties in the United States would greatly help our animals. When will somebody step up and do something…..

  3. Why hasn’t this person or people been caught yet? Someone has to know who did this. I’d like to leave them locked in a cage out in the cold. There is absolutely NO excuse for this behavior. I don’t care how rough things are. You can always advertise for free to give you dog away if you have to (but I would never do it, I’d rather starve than give up any of my babies). Whoever did this will get their just reward.
