Tied to a tree and forgotten. That's what apparently happened to a dog adopted by a Mechanicsville Family.

This doesn't say much for whatever background check used to check out these people. Obviously they aren't animal lovers or they never would've left an innocent dog tied to a tree with no food or water. What reason could they have for not taking her back to where they got her, especially since they signed a contract? I sure hope a nice person has taken Edy in and she has a loving home now. And the family of uncaring jerks who abandoned Edy and broke their contract definitely should face legal action.

WHY DONT WE HAVE THE NAMES OF THESE PEOPLE ?? THEY NEED TO BE PUBLICLY HUMILIATED FOR THIS. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HATE FOR THE ANIMALS?? THEY OBVIOUSLY HAVE OTHER ISSUES. DO THEY HAVE KIDS AND WHAT KIND OF MESSAGE ARE THEY SENDING THEM. I HOPE THAT DOG HAS FOUND A LOVING HOME. WHAT A SHAME.

I agree. What cruel people. All they had to do was call the agency back and they would have taken the dog back. Publish their names so they can never own a pet again.

What horrible people. I hope they get the book thrown at them. I really hope that some nice person took in the dog and that it did not become some animals dinner. I cannot understand people like this. I also hate the hunters who use dogs to hurt, totally inhumane they way they starve them so they hunt better. I have adopted quite a few shelter dogs and they are truly great dogs.

That is dogs to hunt.....see a lot of that up here in King William County. Hate it, and all the dead dogs that get hit by cars during the hunting season, just stinks.

Names, how come you are NOT publishing the names of these abusers? There are obviously big holes in this story. Why would you try to "protect" the people who did this? What if they try to adopt again? Let their neighbors and their community KNOW who they are, they are as bad as child molesters in my book.

What wicked, nasty, vile people. They should be sterilized to make sure they have no more offspring. If anyone has found this sweet dog, please call the above number. You're a saint if you have taken her in and given her a good home. Just put everyone's mind at ease and let the rescue folks know.

How can a "pet lover" do this do a dog they adopted? I agree with the other posters: publish their names, charge them with whatever charges possible, and take THEM out to the woods and tie THEM to a tree, no food, no water, no note. See how long they last. Sad, just so sad. I will be praying that Edy is safe and ok.

This story makes me nauseous. There was an article about Edy having been adopted and dumped, which is bad enough. However, no mention was made this lovely dog was tied to a tree and left for dead.

Our two wonderful dogs (Jazz an, Akita/Chow and Angus, a Dobie/Black Lab) passed away within months of each other after being our terrific companions for nearly 15 years. It sickens me, there are people out there who can be so cruel.

Edy could have very easily been returned to S.O.S. To leave Edy tied to a try to fend for herself as best she could, especially in this horrendous heat is extreme cruelty.

The names of these people should be made public, and they should be prosecuted to the full extend of the law. They are the ones who are animals.

These people should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Especially if the dog really was sick...they're legally bound to provide medical care for her as the owner. This was nothing but animal cruelty, abuse, and neglect in every sense, and an example needs to be made so that people understand their are consequences that will be enforced for breaking the law. Perhaps that action will make people think twice about their options, and make the right decision in the future. Everyone will understand if you aren't able to keep a pet for any reason as long as you make the humane decision, and relenquish the animal to a person or an organization that will care for it. To leave it to suffer and die is just incomprehensible when their are so many resources at your fingertips.

FINALLY: a group of comments with which I entirely agree X 5! After all of the stupid gun and political crap I see here (including mine), this does my heart good. Thank all of you very much.

I can promise you that if the dog is found and charges can be brought that Powhatan Animal Control will prosecute to the full extent of the law. Those officers have no sympathy for these types of actions and will take a case like this personally. I just hope that Edy has found a good home, can be located, and criminal prosecution can begin.

I can only hope someone picked her up and is caring for her. Seems some prison time at one of the prison facilities that offer the S.O.S Pen Pal program is in order.

why would the original shelter not take her back? clearly there was certainly something that really was wrong with the dog. Somewhere along the lines, ommunication and deceit were on the end of the seller. That dog is JUST A DOG!!! If there were was a reason that they got rid of her its because there must have been a reason and she WAS SICK> There aren't nearly enough details in this story to get an accurate idea of what happened. Its completely one sided. I bet all you people are ones who voted for our wonderful president as well...thinking we'll never have to pay for gas or rent again....hahaha thats brilliant!!!
