Any person who does this kind of thing should be
given mental testings and charged to the fullest by the law. What a sick person and thankfully the dog will now be given to a home where the people actually want it and will give it love and attention. A also think that his excuse that he thought the dog had some kind of disease and was trying to put it out of its misery could have just as easily taken the dog to the Humane Society and let the professionals deal with the dog at no cost to him. His excuse is inexcusable..

Just checked this web site again - It sounds like Chance is doing great - even visiting some of his old friends. Here is wishing a wonderful new year to him, his foster family and friends, and to whoever is lucky enough to end up with this guy. And here is wishing a totally crappy new year to the jerk who thought it would be OK to torture him.(ok not nice, I know - but I have never professed to be a saint.)

Last I heard, the law enforcement (LE) were dropping the misdemeanor and going to consider a harsher charge, but I haven't heard another thing since. Dog was fed antifreeze too. Pathetic!

I believe they were identified, but I have heard nothing since. I don't know if he was prosecuted or anything else. I heard the person also gave the dog antifreeze to drink.

You could Google that and perhaps some information will come up.

Here are a couple articles about the dog. He has been re-adopted and I guess is doing well.

It's a sad story though. I don't know about the guy who did this, but in my opinion, anyone who abuses an animal is crazy! I LOVE laborador retrievers and am considering getting one for my daughter and her family. They are nice dogs, usually very gentle and get along well with children.

I'm not really all that great on the computer, thanks for your compliment. It's just that I use Google for everything I need to find.
