How could somebody threaten....

to shoot a puppy? I was at my son's football practice today and two teenagers (who's younger brother is on our team) walk up and you can see that they are upset and they have two puppies in their hands. When asked about them they informed us that the owner said if somebody didn't take the pups they were going to shoot them. I thought they were being dramatic at first but they pointed out the owner of the pups and their mom went over to him and found out what they said was true. This idiot was really going to shoot these puppies. So now I have one and the teenagers have the other.

How could somebody do that?

  • People are just unthinking and heartless. Our dog, who has been gone for some time now, was part of a litter that was thrown in the river! She and one sibling survived. She was the best, mellowest dog. Poor thing had drowning nightmares for years.

  • I am glad that the puppies were saved from a horrible fate. My question is did you get the man's info and report him to animal control? If you have not done so yet I would definitely report him. You have the teens word and then the mother's too. Please do something so that this will not happen again in a few months when his female ends up having another litter.

  • I know licensed breeders that euthanized puppies for not having proper markings. Also in the Mid west people do it all the time for unwanted pups and kittens. Shoot them, drown them, bury them. I don't agree with it though. I say just get them fixed so they stop breeding!. It's one of those not so pleasant parts of life.

  • unfortunetly, that is not the worst thing I have heard or even seen. I have worked in the animal field for a long time and have seen the worst side of people. It is very sad.

  • wow thats horrible but it comes back to the point that people should get educated about fixing their dogs. if his dog wouldnt had the puppies they wouldnt have to worry about findign them a home. but yes thats very horrible im glad you kept one

  • I haven't gotten the info yet But I planned on doing that tonight since we have practice again tonight. I am going to be reporting them to animal control.

  • Ugh. I probably would have told the guy I feel the same way about people that don't spay and neuter their pets - I want to shoot them. What an a-hole.
