    Couple kept two dogs in cage behind sofa for 22 hours a day for TWO YEARS leaving them covered in sores and scars | Mail Online


    What the HELL is the matter with people? To do this to two beautiful dogs!!!!

    ANd it is the measure of the gentleness of staffies that despite their hunger and distress, neither has turned on the other.

    These scum want to be shamed. The should be in prison and banned from keeping animals for life, and their benefits stopped.

    AND their photos should be published so we all know who they are

    This one really beggars belief. They had other dogs which were properly cared for so why keep these two in this manner? It's beyond weird.

    Why just a ten year ban?!? Surely a lifetime ban on pets would have been appropriate. I would be interested to see what the success rates are on bans from keeping pets, they must be pretty difficult to enforce.

    Poor, poor babies :( One of them is the same age as Max :mad: How could they do this to these 2 dogs, and treat the DDB so lovingly? :(

    Does anyone know what's happened to the dogs?

    10 years???? They should never be allowed to look at another animal, let alone own one.

    This makes me feel sick and angry.

    What horrible excuses for human beings! Why did they only get a 10 year ban?? They should be locked up and have a lifetime ban! Disgusting.

    Poor, poor dogs :(

    I really don't know how anyone could do this :mad: they should be banned for life and serve time in prison. The punishment for crimes like this should be far tougher.

    I just hope the dogs are able to recover fully.

    My heart breaks for those poor souls... how any human being could treat another living being like that is beyond my understanding.

    The punishment or lack thereof is disgusting. I really believe that adults who are found to abuse their animals like that should never be allowed to have children or other pets.
