Boothby has since removed the photo from Facebook, but not before the police department received several complaints about the dog’s muzzle tied up with the purple shoelaces “in a manner that appeared that it could restrict the dog’s airflow,” the report stated. The woman told authorities the dog had only been tied up that way for 45 seconds.

Upon further investigation, the dog appeared to be in good health. No information has been supplied whether the dog was removed from the home.

    I not to mention my pals came checking the great information and facts located on your web page and so at once I got a terrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to the web blog owner for those tips. All of the boys ended up as a result warmed to read through all of them and already have definitely been tapping into them. Thanks for simply being well thoughtful and for making a choice on some exceptional things most people are really eager to be informed on. My sincere regret for not saying thanks to earlier.
