Butch was a resident of Foresthill, adopted by a single man. It's a shame when the person who goes out of their way to adopt a dog, and has every opportunity to return them to the rescue decides to "dispose" of the sweet life in such a brutal manner. Why????

Denise, I wish there were a tried and true way to really know the person behind the mask who is adopting an animal. This guy appears to look right in the eyes of the world but is obviously a sick person. There is absolutely no excuse for what he did to Butch. I do know his world will be turned upside down for his brutality to an innocent animal very soon. Foresthill is a very small, tight-knit gossipy community. When the word gets out he has no choice but to run for his life.

I PRAY they find this sick excuse for a "man" and he gets what he deserves. It's a shame people like this are even breathing the same air as the others. What a poor excuse of a human being. Who could ever do this to an innocent animal. Makes me sick to my stomach.

It is hard to say this but the things people do to animals and of course there is no way of knowing the type of people who adopts these lovely animals as their true pets, and it may make it difficult for animals to be adopted, but they need to go through a mental evaluation of some kind, having an animal of any kind is a life long commitment and all the states needs to work together and have one web site where people names can be typed in and have results on that person, but of course they can change their names too and that should be a law against that, yea you need a animal because it takes away stress but you hate that animal too I think the laws on adopting needs to a little tighter or continue to educate the public it is not going to get any better.

I agree with all the animal lovers. It is my hope that people will keep thier eyes open and get involved. If your afraid of these people (the abusers) you should be. But there alot of people that will back you just post it with and address and I can promise you the good people of foresthill will take care of it. It is so sad to see such piss poor excuses of people that are even allowed to live.
