Save the dog that was found in Birmingham tied to a tree. This poor dog has already had a bad start in life .From the R.S.P.C.A we are under the understanding he has been used in dog fighting. Lets give this boy the chance of a forever home!

Noted signed and shared OMG the wounds on this poor dogs face, if someone rescued him are they not supposed to recondition him and then put him up for adoption. I know that he probably will never be able to reside with other animals in the home because of what he was used for, but they should give him a chance at a normal life of love and not abuse. He don't deserve to die because of what someone did to him.

This poor animal has already suffered, he deserves to find peace now. We took on a dog from a fighting ring broken up by the Police. He has since crossed Rainbow Bridge but he lived with us for nearly 10 years, we miss him very much. Until we meet again Charlie, forever in our thoughts.

Do we have any info on this dog?
I assume he is under the control of Birmingham Council, has he been classed as a 'pit-bull type'?
If so, is a there a non-UK Rescue who is prepared/able to take him?
If not, has any Rescue or person showed interest in taking him?

Please sign my petition - pledge to adopt at least one rescued dog or cat in your lifetime! It's such a small gesture, and yet, imagine how very different the world could be, if we all did just that??

***UPDATE 24 June***
I have tried to contact the petition author for more updates on this dog, but so far no reply. In case I get any news, I’ll post them here.

This is the petition author’s profile page, in case you want to send an intro:
Elaine McCallion:
http://www.care2.com/c2c/people/profile.html?pid=555405777

You can also contact her by going to the petition page and clicking on her name, beside the author field. It will redirect you to a contact form where you can write her a message:
http://www.thepetitionsite.com/640/084/687/dont-let-this-dog-be-put-to-sleep/

Unfortunately, there’s little hope for this dog, as they have BSL in UK, and as stated by the RSPCA on their page: “Under the Act ‘Breed Specific Legislation’ (BSL) prohibits the ownership of certain ‘types’ (the dogs are not a recognised ‘breeds’ in the UK) of dogs the most popular prohibited ‘type’ is the pit bull terrier.”

This is RPCA’s position on BSL:

I checked the Fb page and the newspaper article. It sounds like there are local people who could be good owners, if the city would allow the ownership of this breed. Poor thing looks gentle, has been through too much..

UPDATE - The petition author has just posted this:

Update #3 July 10, 2014
DDA Watch We have received a further written reply from RSPCA HQ today, regarding Mutley the dog who is in RSPCA care, as follows -

''Mutley the dog is receiving veterinary treatment for his injuries and is being well cared for. A police dog liaison officer has confirmed that he is not covered by the breed specific legislation set out in the Dangerous Dogs Act. However, he has clearly suffered some horrendous treatment and is still recuperating so is not available for rehoming at this time.''
