This campaign has gotten a lot of attention from around the world, yet Brindi is still not released, locked up since July 2008. Because she nipped another dog. The city of Halifax is one sick and archaic bunch of people - please check the links and support us in saving Brindi, an innocent dog, a victim of greed and corrupt minds.

Do you know this woman/dog personally? Don't believe everything you read, remember you're only getting one side of the story.

You have a point. I do know her, been on this campaign for months. Also been involved in such a case here where we live, and seen the corruptness live in court - where the system is using a dog as a pawn to further their career or put another trophy on the rack. There are always two sides to every story, you are right. But I tend to believe the one on whose side is compassion, love, dedication and not the one who is driven by a ill system, corrupt minds, abuse of power, lies and manipulation.

Too many dogs such as Brindi are victims DAILY. And if we all sit back with doubts, unsure or being deceived, then nothing will change. It is a fact that our government agencies often abuse their power, out to win no matter what. I've seen it here and could not believe it.

It is when you pay attention and get involved - you will discover the huge travesties taking place daily which ruin lives just because the system can do it. If you look into Brindi's case, you have it clearly in front of you. And because I am a dog/animal lover, I won't sit back and doubt it, nor will I shut up and ignore it. I confront it and try to make it better for future dogs.

Thanks Monica. You are truly a dog lover, and very compassionate. (we probably all are or we wouldn't be in this group, haha) I've worked with dogs for 30 years, in many capacities. One was as an Animal Control Officer. That's where my comment on "don't always believe what you read, and hearing one side" came in. I didn't read every link associated with this story, but one part made me remember a situation. There was a State Trooper in my town that had a huge black Lab (90#'s). While in the home with the owners, the dog was of typical behaviour....you know, big jughead goofy and lovey. However, when the dog was alone outside, it would terrorize the neighbors walking by or riding bikes by. To walkers it would run up to the edge of it's grass, and bark ferrousiously. To the bikers, it would run and chase them, sending them home in fear and crying. I had many conversations and warnings with the guy, but his position caused him a bit too much confidence as being "above the law". After numerous complaints, I had no alternative but to bring the case to court....against my own Police departments wishes (he was a narc and helped our own town greatly). Didn't matter, I had to see him as a regular dog owner, not of his job position. I didn't wish to put the dog down, that wasn't even the issue, it was a matter of an owner having proper control over the dog. But that goes into the difference between a leash law and a restraint law.

Dogs don't have voices and we have to be the voice for them, but we have to remember that they are dogs, and have their basic animal instinct as their guide.

Hi there, I can imagine the Black Lab needed training which he never got. His/her behaviour is similar as Brindi was assessed, very much potential to be trained, not aggressive at core but insecure. But conveniently, the city threw that assessment out... because it would have HURT their case of witch hunt, which this truly is. Read the latest blog... it is heartbreaking. When authorities who collect a paycheck clearly abuse their power such as Halifax does, I get very mad. They need to be exposed and stopped in their tracks. Now Fran has a court date again, on Feb. 5th, to find out if they will kill her dog. Yet, all facts point that the city is doing illegal actions, and are crucifying this woman and her dog. When one spends close to 30K, loses all she has and still fights... for the love in her life, her dog, one can wonder how sick these people really are and how they do not care that they become an international embarassment.

I grew up in Europe where I have never seen such horrific abuse of power and "officials" turning innocent animals who are misread or become victims of corrupt minds, into pawns to further their careers. Halifax ought to be ashamed of themselves... I have been part of a big case here, where the same thing happened, only the dog got released in the end, because they pressure mounted. Maybe you heard of Rolo the dog.

Thanks for writing ! Monika
