  • Sometimes it is worth losing your job to do the right thing.

    I would have saved the dog.

  • I would have done the same thing that your friend did. Dogs can freeze to death or lose limbs from freezing temps. I am proud of your friend, for all animal lovers! I hope he doesn't lose his job. Your friend's boss should be ashamed of him/herself putting money before an animals life.
    I have a friend who saw a cat get hit by a car and she went to help the cat, she was bitten by the cat and got infection. She was on IV medicine and had to be off work for days. She works at the Post office and she was never yelled at about it, even though they were so short of help because of her being off that the Post Master was running the window.

  • i am very proud of my friend, and i feel bad for his now added stress of wondering if he will lose his job he has a 10 month old and has finnaly seen that kids are not cheap, his wife just started her new job so finally things are going right for them. he saw this poor dog and just felt so bad for it and was mad at the owners. i told him he did the right thing and the owner of the company is a jacka** if he dosent understand. poor thing had frostbit on its paws. i own a small dog and mine will only go out side for 1 min.. in and out. its cold here in new england.

  • Well, my neighbor called the cops on me saying I left my little guy out all night and he was only outside for 20 minutes. She has done this before(she's mentally unstable). The cops always come, and find that it isn't true and leave.
    That dog must have been in big trouble and needed help ASAP to get removed by the cop, seeing as you have to have a warrant before you can seize an animal from a home. It's still considered the owners property. Believe me I looked into this for my own personal needs. I don't think the dog should have suffered while they figured it all out either.
