I can't believe it took a year for this poor dog to be rescued. The neighbors tried hard for him to be helped, but you know how stupid laws are.

At least he is out of there now. Thanks Simone.

This is so unbelievable, all involved were as bad as the owner who walked away from Cola. I to would of just took the dog and found him a home. Why do people get animals when they have no heart for them. there is really no difference between that kind of human and a child molester. Ugly is Ugly.
