That is very sad. I don't mean to put blame on Sgt. Young, but I would never assume my dog was safe at the pound. He found out the dog was there Friday night, but didn't go to the shelter 'til Monday morning? I'm sure the shelter had a website with hours. If he had gone to the shelter on Saturday, his dog would still be alive. If his dog was not outside unattended, she would not have gotten out of the yard. Yes, the shelter made a horrible mistake, but so did Sgt. Young. And....It was the dog who paid the price.

Why do they call it euthanize? Was he sick? (I couldn't get the link)
Euthanizing is putting a dog out of its misery, otherwise it is execution.

Target (the dog in this story) was actually JUST on Oprah recently. She and two other dogs attacked a suicide bomber just before he walked into their sleeping quarters. One of the three dogs was injured so badly, he had to be put down. This is such a sad end to a great story. Target (and the other two dogs) saved a lot of lives that day and for her life to end like this...sickening.

I read this article this morning ! The animal survived being shot, run over, thrown off buildings only to meet her demise at the hands of an unknowing vet. Very sad ! :(

MLR, You are so right. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, mistakes still happen. In this case, there just weren't enough safeguards in place for Target.

Ahh! Sorry guys! It was late last night! :rofl:

Koda just got Neutered and I was researching the Rimadyl they have him on. I guess I copied and pasted the link to the Rimadyl I was looking up. Hahah. Ohhhh maaaannnn. :blush:

Looks like you guys found the right link. Is there any way of editing in the proper link to my initial post? It's a good thing I don't look up porn huh. ;)

oh.my.gosh. :( This breaks my heart. I recall seeing this dog and his owner on Oprah not too long ago. It made me cry. Why did he wait until Monday? Why didn't the dog have some sort of ID? I don't know. It makes me think of myself with my two dogs. Our Hannah got microchipped, but I haven't updated her info since we left Washington, so our phone numbers, address, etc have all changed. Harley's is right because he was MC'd right before he was neutered so our phone number is the same, but the address is my mom's home in Georgia.

Ugh to the shelter employee. I seriously hope there's some vey tough repercussions for this accident. :( I'm not a sue happy person, but it did cross my mind when reading this.
