Thanks for the post. There is still a gap in the story. Why was Dutch in a position where another dog was involved and whose dog was it? I agree Dutch must be saved.

Noted and already signed - this poor dog - what a 'gemors'. We need to do everything in our power to save him - he doesn't deserve this - he is not a bloody criminal!

I dont believe this woman done nothing to provoke the dog and think she is telling lies There is no justification for putting a dog to death when they have not really got to the bottom of the story and why this incident happened
Its not like it was a fighting dog so much is in question When in doubt you say not guilty as nothing is really proven. I hope the dog gets saved

Dutch must be saved. That woman had a risky behaviour and should have known that she could have been bitten. Never try to separate two dogs fighting without any help.

signed and noted. i have forwarded this to other people as well as the petition and have signed and noted other stories/petitions in regards to this. to be honest, the story sounds completely DODGY! no way would a dog try to go after someone repeatedly who was trying to 'help' the dog whilst " trying to clean the blood off of him". also, you would wait for the dog to calm down before trying to do this. my dog and i were attacked just before christmas by another dog and i waited 5 minutes or so after we got home before i tried to touch him to tend and assess the wounds. i didn't even look at myself until i was at the vets!

furthermore, it clearly shows she is a lying sack of $*!* as she claims she was bitten to the bone TWICE [i don't see how it's possible for a dog to bite your backside to the bone. it's the largest muscle in the body! how big was this dog's mouth?! bigger than normal?!] and then got a compound fracture. NO WAY! "severing an artery"? BS. who was there then to save her from passing out from the amount of blood p!$$!ng out? and where are the photographs showing the blood in her house and the bites? any hospital would take photographs as it is evidence of a dangerous dog. even the original article said the wounds were minor, so where have the authorities have proof of it being more than that and what evidence do we have of the bill being $24k and not been forged as a way to falsely 'prove' such an incident occurred? how come the medical records don't match?

to show this even further as a lie, where is this other dog, what type of dog was it and what injuries did it sustain? because if her account is true, then the other dog should be DEAD. where did this happen and where did she get this apparent "pole" from? how come nobody has come forward to say that their dog was attacked to show this crazy woman isn't lying and 'prove' that she is telling the truth?

and how would a trainer come up with a completely different reference for the dog than that given by this stupid and irresponsible woman?

to me, it sounds like the dog fight was made up, SHE attacked the dog with a pole and her fists [and whatever else] and eventually the dog bit her back. she was so shocked by it that she decided to make up the story out of SPITE to get the dog put down. if she didn't want the dog, give it up! f***!ng riles me, this story!
