Maybe where she was born their culture and heritage doesnt put much value on a dogs life.I've heard they still eat dogs in south america.I know the aztecs ate dog meat.IF people want to fight for more immigration then accept that cultures dont always mesh.

Whether or not their culture values animals, isn't the point. The point is, in America, there are laws against animal cruelty and neglect. It's illegal not to seek medical treatment for ill or injured animals.
Yes, dogs (cats, rats and monkeys, etc.) are eaten in other countries and that's their business. An injured animal left to die a painful death in America, is OUR business.
Maybe you need to go back to whatever third world country you came from if you don't agree with the laws here.
