The poor dog Gideon was recently dumped by the side of a road in Newark, NJ, one of the many victims of dogfighting. Although he received emergency medical treatment, his injuries were so horrific, severe and numerous, that he did not survive.

Another reason WE must be diligent to stop dog fighting apps+games! People need to stop abusing all animals for their own entertainment+profit industries. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to speak for the voiceless in this case.

Action taken! Should I find myself face to face with one of these a$$hats, I'm afraid his injuries might be so severe, horrific, and numerous that the may not survive!

Most definately signed with comment! This is atrocious! Poor Gideon never had a chance once people who teach dogs how to fight got a hold of him. May he rest ever so gently now, no more pain sweet baby...

TY Simone and all the others here that are so very caring, we need more signatures, I will forward this one! It needs to STOP NOW!

With hope,

Signatures now 606 - 'other' C2 members (of the 17 milion) off sick or on leave?? We have to spread the news far and wide! We have 6 puppies but within a day of placing an ad our local SPCA contacted us to sell by 'word of mouth' only due to the devastating effects of dogfighting, which is a very lucrative and 'well oiled' business in the Western Cape; we were even offered free transport if an approved purchaser resides in another province. Now I don't allow anyone to take Xena with them to the shop, being too wary that the 'wrong eyes' might spot her and find out where the pups live!
