i am not planning on doing anymore until i get trained...the spca supervisor asked me to go to some training thingies with one of her workers to get trained on how to do some things with temperment testing. she said she'd like me to get trained up for everything since i seem willing to do so, and want to eventually start a rescue when i have enough resources. she gave me some papers and such to read about it and i'm seriously considering it...one of the training courses is actually watching a bunch of apparent "aggressive" pitbulls in Grande Pairie (about 2 hours away from here) doing the canadian good neighbour tests. i told her i'd definately go to that if i got the time off from work.
i'm glad everyone is being so supportive and helping me out by all the suggestions on what to do. i know i shouldnt done anything with this bully, it was my stupid mistake.
there is more on the story that i found out yesterday but i'm too tired (its 6am and i'm in my last hour of work) to type it out for everyone but here's the jyst.
"domino" had atleast two needle syringes lodged in his back, they think that when the girl went to pet him she may have touched them, even though she said she didnt get near his back, he may have been defending himself, although he did snap at the vet when he was just looking at him, and he also had a visible healed fracture to his skull that looked to be caused by a "blunt object" (most likely a hammer or a crowbar
), the vet found large traces of some kind of steroid type drug in his body and figured out that he was UNDER a year old. (this dog was ripped...like seriously i didnt know a pup could look like he did)
the vet(who is the same one that i trusted with my mistee) decided that it was in "domino"s best interest to be pts. because he was in alot of physical pain and seemed to be emotional detached to humans, which didnt seem right since he was a bully.
okay so i ended up writing the whole thing...once i get started i cant stop
he could have been such a great dog.
anyways, me and a few other people are thinking about writing a newspaper add about him...but we cant think of things to say if you have any suggestions please PM me
it would help alot....if things like this continue i'm afraid BSL will head my way and no one wants BSL to happen ANYWHERE...
