A dog that's been living in the basement of a Shoreline house for most of four years -- the past two months with its owner out of town -- might be closer to being freed, a spokeswoman for King County Regional Animal Services said Tuesday.

This poor dog spend 8 years tied in the back yard and 4 years locked in a basement without any companionship,they had better rescue him and get him into a decent,loving,forever home for his remaining days.This is all wrong.That owner should be charged with neglect and abuse.

Would it not be right to have this person live out his life in the basement and thrown a biscuit if remembered so?
I'm sick and tired of this negativity upon our animals and we need to start going into the Courts system having the Judges pulled to understanding the grave departure of an animal and what it does to their mental state of being, when unattended to upon month after month..why can't we start today giving much heavier fines for the ones that place this insanity upon our loving animals .

This poor animal deserves better!! What is wrong with these people? Laws do need to be changed to include abusive confindment. This is insanity and makes no sense. Why wouldn't the owner surrender Lucky. It is apparent they don't want nor love Lucky. For Lucky's sake I thank the neighbor for reporting this and keeping authorities informed. A special prayer for you tonight (and many nights) Lucky, until you are safe and in a loving home!

Lucky "throws himself at the walls when he hears humans nearby"-the poor baby is living a TORTURED LIFE.
This is SO upsetting-how the HELL do you treat a dog this way?!
Dogs need more than food and difficult is that to understand?!
Lock these scumbags up in the basement for awhile-see how it feels.
Noted with very angry tears.

I can't understand why a family gets a dog then treats it like it was a piece of garbage!?! This family should be fined and charged with abuse. They should also lose their right to own Lucky or another dog or another animal for that matter. In BC, Canada if you want to get an animal they do background checks on the people and if any abuse is found the person is refused. If anyone abuses an animal they get heavy fines and in some cases even jail. I've been a Wildlife Manager & Animal Activist for over 25 years and I'm totally disgusted in this day and age the way some people use and abuse animals! If I could I would adopt Lucky and give him a home filled with lots of love, care and attention. I hope & pray everything works out for Lucky and he finds a loving family that will treat him like part of the family :)
