Wisconsin DNR: Wolves kill 4 dogs in last week

Hmmm. So exactly what were these 4 dogs doing? Being trained to hunt wolves....bears??? I live in wolf country. Keep your dogs contained....most communities have leash laws. Up here my common sense doesn't let my dogs run loose. Either a car will hit them, predators may get them, and they don't belong just running the neighborhood. I love where I live. I live with the area's wildlife. No bleeding heart here. You might want to watch out for that 22, that makes me nervous....not the wildlife in the woods!  (Jul 5, 2013 | post #3)

$1000 reward for return of buddy

Reward for Dog Thank you for writing your side of the story. I am still confused about some issues...mainly, why would the shelter want this dog so badly out of your house...that it would stoop to taking Buddy when you were not home? What did the shelter say to your husband to make him want to stay home on Monday?....obvious ly your husband thought they might 'take' Buddy when no one was home. Why did the shelter not respect your husbands answer when he told them Buddy no longer needed a home, in fact why did you not tell the shelter much earlier that Buddy no longer needed to find a home? To me these are important questions. I look at myself as a good guy. I support shelters, spay and neuter programs, am against breed specific legislation, and try to do the right thing. Most importantly, I try to get to the bottom of things. Some of the above posters have made me doubt Binky Lavoie, and the paper trail makes me strongly wary now. I want to believe you, but there are still some holes in the story that make me wonder. I am not saying I believe the shelter and not you...I just feel parts of the story are still missing. I don't have Buddy, nor do i know where he is. But, should I know of leads or hear something...I want to do the right thing. I want to do the right thing for Buddy.  (Sep 13, 2011 | post #34)

Who can explain this? This was the shelter that ADOPTED Buddy out. What is really going on with Buddy??? https://www.facebo ok.com/#!/photo.ph p?fbid=11632755178 5853&set=a.116 980391720569.28929 .115675845184357 &type=1&th eater  (Sep 10, 2011 | post #23)

UPAWS is NOT PAWS. I am not aware of any dogs from the south coming into UPAWS.. but I do know for a fact that Vilas County regularly swaps animals with UPAWS and dogs are getting into new areas and getting adopted. And I also know Binky brings dogs from down south...but they go to UPAWS??? To my knowledge he boards them and/or now has his own shelter....PAWS. No application??...that doesn't say that on UPAWS website. Have you worked with UPAWS, talked with them, been there? I am open for thoughts on any shelter that is doing something not for the dogs...but I will not bash unless I...not a 2nd party..but I have issues/concerns, etc. Show me the money and in fairness I will look into things more. Also, I too don't agree with the listing of credit problems. My credit has nothing to do with my 2 rescue dogs....they will get the care they need. Period. I have been thru rough and tough times in my life...my dogs will always be with me and well cared for....more than I can say for some people that drop dogs and cats in shelters for the damndest reasons!!  (Sep 10, 2011 | post #16)
