    Elias Delaney Quinn doesn’t sound like anyone I would want to be traveling with, No doubt he will become intoxicated again and either the companion or dog will suffer again! If she has any brains at all she should take the dog and leave!

    Why didn’t they take the dog away???? It’s abuse. If the one traveling with him kept the dog that means this abuser will come back to the dog. That poor baby should have been taken away!!!!!!!!!! He is bound to get abused again!!!
