A Dog Owner who wants stringing up!! by Spursfan on 29 May 2010 8:31pm
 
This is so sad and upsetting. It made me cry when I read it in our local paper, Stafford Newsletter, this week.

How on earth could the owner have left him in that state? The dog had been in the family for 13 years for flip's sake - and even if he hadn't surely the bloke knew he was suffering?

Tosun had a skin condition when he was tiny - Staffie pups often pick up Demodex mites from their Mothers (er that is his CANINE mum, not me !!) - which was awful for him BUT we took hom back and forth to the vets and got it sorted for him. And now his monthly flea treatment is one that acts against Demodex too. [In worst case scenarios it gets bad that the dog has had to be put down as the itchyness is so bad, as it was Tosun lost hair in some places that thankfully grew back].

I'm not saying that was the problem - just saying that the bloke should have DONE something for this poor, poor dog.

Yes I agree Sue (and you're right Beth). They wanted a prison sentence but the magistrates had their hands tied.

Perhaps it's me being thick, but when I look at Tosun, at how loving and accepting he is, how willing to please etc, I can't understand how people can hurt or neglect dogs (or ANY animals for that matter).

Our Mike (Tucson not Palin!!) put a post on FB about his niece witnessing a pitbull being drenched in petrol and set alight and how traumatised she was (and how he was too after seeing the pix). How could somebody DO that?? What sort of mind do you have to have to be so cruel? I haven't seen pix of it but it has stayed with me for days and I haven't told Zak because I know how upset he'd be (he can't watch things like Animal Rescue etc on TV as he finds it upsetting when animals are hurt - and he isn't soppy by the way, just very caring).

I wish that whatever people do to animals to make them suffer they get back three-fold.

I would never give your wee devil dog Tosun more than a gentle kick on his arse. :)

I am not a violent person - far from it. However, if anyone ever mistreated Snoopy, Emony, or my rabbit, Alice, I think I'd soon remember what violence was.

This man is totally evil as are all people who abuse any animal regardless of it's staus as a pet or wildlife. Anyone who mistreats animals or birds of any kind wants executing.

@ Anne. I don't know if Karen will concur with this but my Australian ( though Scottish born of course ) sister-in -law, used to think we were polite when we said shite rather than shit ! ( yes, I know, we were being neither;) )
