They would give their lives for a human and what do we do in return?Horrible atrocities and we just can't seem to get ourselves morally right!!!!!Too sad.

Too bad the sex offender wasn't bitten in a way that he could never attack anyone again.

WOW, Mabeline, you are a real hero. If I where the girl that the scum-bag attacked, I would have adopted the dog. But, very glad she found a new home. Great work, Mabeline!!!!
