We lost the puppy last night. I mean, not "lost" - he didn't disappear - but he had to be put down.
Sunday, while we were at NTIF, I missed a call from my neighbor. Finally got ahold of him....seems the wee puppy had stuck his head thru the fence, only he picked the wrong fence. He chose the fence in between my house and my neighbor's. Neighbor has dogs....1 of which is, well, vicious.
Bad dog decided he didn't like the puppy's head, so he...pulled him thru the fence. Neighbor heard the results, managed to remove the puppy, and rushed him to the vet.
*I* do not know all of the damage - I didn't want to know. I know he had a broken jaw, and massive head injuries (and I am assuming broken bones - puppy wouldn't fit thru the fence unless something was rearranged. Seriously.)
Now, why neighbor has bad dog, I don't know - it's attacked him and his wife before. I have warned the kids to avoid that fence - he's going to put up another one 2 feet away from ours, but Still......if anything happens to my children, there will be gunshots and lawsuits.
In other news, Life sucks.
Poor poor poor puppy.
Sounds like the neighbor's dog also needs to be put down.
Oh, that's really sad. :( I'm so sorry.
Oh, how dreadful! I'm SO sorry.
I am very sorry! Hugs to you and Athena gives licks too.
Arrrrgh! Why do people keep dogs that they know are dangerous?
I'm so sorry -- hugs to you.
I'm sorry to hear about the puppy.
You should be able to contact the police about it. Aggressive dogs like that, proven to be a danger to other animals and even humans, need to be dealt with just as aggressively. It's killed once, even if unintentionally, and it'll kill again.
Don't wait for the chance that the two wee-bots could get hurt. Tell your neighbor that if the dog isn't gone, then you're contacting the police.
How much good they'll do you is another story entirely.
I am so so sorry. Ya'll must be broken hearted. Sounds like a horrible situation. At least the neighbors are willing to do the right thing and put some separation between their dog and your fence line for the safety of your kids. Awful.
Be sure to get documentation and save it in a safe place in case of future problems - vet report, witnesses, xrays, etc. It may be years before you need it (or never), but it would be important if gunshots were to commence. :)
