On Friday, Miracle, an 11-year-old mixed breed dog was euthanized by a compassionate veterinarian in New York because the pain from his injuries was so egregious, a gentle death was the only humane course to take

This is heartbreaking. I always hope that an abused animal, especially a senior, can have at least a little while on earth knowing love, kindness, and enjoyment of life. RIP Miracle. Dianne please let me know of any petition for Miracle. I will gladly sign. TY for letting us know about him. I would send you a star but I've done so earlier this week.

What a terrible thing to do to this dog. The person who did this needs jailing. Anyone who abuses animals must be punished severely. The laws need strengthening to ensure that these jerks get the punishments they deserve.

We need stronger laws for those who abuse animals. I have no problem with putting them on death row. These are useless humans and I don't see a reason for letting them live in society.

Everyday you read another case of animal abuse that makes you weep and you think the stories cant get any worse but they do I cant imagine the suffering of this poor dog Thank goodness he now has peace but it shouldnt be this way Someone must have lived near this dog and known of the abuse if miracle was 11 I shudder to think that this person could be out there and getting another animal in the future I hope they find this abuser No punishment is too extreme for this person Rest in peace poor miracle!

Finally some caring humans could put this precious soul out of pain. This dog didn't deserve to be abused and may the people responsible for this abuse suffer as this animal did and may they also rot in hell for all eternity.

This just makes me sick, That poor dog having to suffer for so many years. That sick POS that killed him should be killed as well. If someone took him out, the world would rejoice, one less animal abuser. When are we going to get serious about animal abuse and make it a real crime? I can't see it happening while animals are considered property and not a sentient beings.

Just awful. Even more awful is that he lived 11 long years in torment and neglect. I wish someone had seen this going on earlier in his life and had rescued him from a life of horrors. Maybe then he would have a chance of living in a great home filled with kindness,goodies and mostly love. The only way these animal atrocities will subside and hopefully end is by implementing very tough animal rights laws which should automatically carry a jail sentence of no less then 10 years. No more of these petty fines and 6 months in jail. I'm sorry Miracle that you experienced such pain but you're in good hands now.

I just read about Molly being put to sleep and now Miracle. I don't believe Miracle had been abused all his life and lived for 11 years. I think he would have died some time ago with the type of abuse he had received. Mayne the original owner gave him away or dumped him. The worst thing is that he was horribly abused in his senior years. You little angel, you are now free to rest in peace. for ever.

This is just heartbreaking! I wonder who abused this poor sweet angel? If he was 11 yrs.old, with the injuries he had which indicated serious internal injuries with his urine the color of port wine, he must have had at least a couple of owners as he couldn't have lived to this age with such internal bleeding. Either the first owner gave him away to someone who committed terrible abuse on this poor dog or Miracle might have had even more than two owners with the last owner committing horrible cruelty to him!
People should be so careful who they give a dog to- there are bad people out there who will take a dog and then treat that poor dog horribly! Dianne, I hope that your petition with the help of our signatures will lead to who ever inflicted these horrific injuries on beautiful Miracle! Rest in Peace beautiful Miracle but the person who did this will never rest in peace and justice will catch up with him hopefully in this life but definitely in the next!

My daughter wants pets, but everytime it ends up to be my pet after a very short time. This time it was a Rottweiler. He is so confused, I did not want to get too close to him, but he is getting close to me, and it became mutual. I am the one who is looking after him most of the time, how can I refuse. Such a lovely monster.
