There's No need for this sort of Neglect, Totally sickening.
I'm thankful she got to experience even a little human generosity before the end.
I hope they catch whoever is responsible without having to use The Reward
Thank You Chris. :(

So heartbreaking seeing these kinds of things happening over and over.... I hope they find out who was responsible for this, and they get exactly what they deserve!!! RIP sweet baby.

I was angry when I first saw the article and then when I read that she had to be destroyed, my heart is broken and I cant stop thinking about it. I wish the pic of her sitting up was still on here, rather thean just the one of her death. What a sweet and gorgeous creature to be starved and dumped.

How could anyone do this to a poor defensive animal the person responsible should have the same done to them and see how they like it

This just makes me so sick,and so angry, the bastard(s) that did this deserve way worse.. best be glad I don't meet them. And she could've been saved-- merry meet,sweet girl, merry part, even through such senseless tragedy, and merry merry meet again. Bright blessings upon your soul.
