Oreo has shown extreme aggressiveness — growling, lunging and trying to bite people, according to animal society officials.

Oreo, a pit bull mix, was hailed as a miracle dog when she survived being hurled off a Brooklyn rooftop last summer. She had two broken legs and a broken rib.

Her owner was arrested on cruelty charges, and Oreo, a dark brown dog with white paws and forelegs and a white stripe down her forehead, was nursed back to health. Dozens of people expressed interest in adopting her.

They will not get the chance. After overseeing her recovery, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has decided she has to be put to death. Oreo will be euthanized on Friday, according to the society’s president and chief executive, Ed Sayres.

This is messed up. Especially after they nursed the dog back to health. He could have been adopted by any number of rehabilitation centers and turned out just fine. Instead they do this? Pathetic.

Yea, Oreo was euthanized yesterday afternoon :( There was a sanctuary that over 30 years experience rehabilitating dogs like this that wanted to take Oreo too.


RIP Oreo.
