That link didnt work for me .
Shocking, we would be taking legal action for sure
try again..i fixed it.
I would be nothing short of furious and would be waiting outside the council offices to have a word with that dog warden
on a side note a brave burglar robbing a house with a rottie in it
Burgled family lose dog as well | The Sun |News
Surely the council have broken the law by not waiting the 7 days? The poor thing looks terrified, not aggressive.
It's a disgrace - another example of a council not having a clue, not following the rules - why on earth didn't they check his mircochip?
RIP Lennox... poor fella
found this on their website:
apparently family told dog was being held in kennels originally
Any dog would be in shock at being burgled and could turn agressive out of fear. But no the council think they know better...
Poor dog and poor family how heart breaking coming come to your house being burgled and then finding out your dog has been pts
Complete outrage! They even checked with the dog's vet - why couldn't they get the owner's details from the vet??? And contact the owners!
That is just so sad. Poor dog was almost definatley acting out of fear and wasnt given a chance. I hope the family do take action..
Poor thing course it was going to react badly . I'm betting if it was a chihuahua or labrador rather than a rottie cross it wouldn't have been murdered
dont you know?......any dog with gold on it is a devourer of babies,old people and cute family pets
i suppose on reflection this is another "pro" to crating your dog???i doubt a burglar would release a crated rottie while he was robbing the place?
i have a rottie pup just turned 6 months and i had him chipped so if heaven forbid he ever ran off i would have a good chance of getting him back?this makes my blood boil.
Poor Lennox, I am joined to all the facebook pages. You can see he was scared
Justice for Lennox-Facebook
This sort of thing just makes my blood run cold!
If I were the family I would be requesting to see a copy of the written signed statement from the witness that said the dog tried to attack them, along with the report from the police officers that attended. I would also enquire from local residents whether they had witnessed the fiasco and take written statements from them - then decide whether or not to pursue the council. If they decided to proceed they should highlight the issue with either the newspaper that printed it or the media.
I would also highlight this to their local MP. It's about time councils were challenged over this sort of abuse.
That's good advice and might prevent this from happening again. Poor dog, he looked terrified to me as well.
They probably did that afterwards, now that they need to cover their as*es. I agree with you, complete outrage.
