    • I agree with you,, starve her sorry butt. My heart broke for this poor dog. He never did anything but be her loyal friend. She doesn’t deserve him, he’s way to good for the likes of her. I wish the laws were more harsh for animal abusers

  1. I agree, but it needs to be for a week, same as the dog. And why the hell would you post this BEFORE she gets back? Now she has been forewarned..

  2. For people like the owner of this beautiful dog, there should also be charges for almost killing him since she left him there with no water no food and unattended. FACT The owner must have thought of the fun she or he was going to have with out “Responsibilities”. I hope the owner learns a lesson and that the poor dog finds a better home.
