    Good idea to tie the whole lot of them behind a truck and drag them.
    Then and only then will they understand the pain and suffering that they cause. these people should be banned for life of owning any animal.
    I am truly not understanding why there is not a worldwide public registry with names and pictures of those who have been charged and found guilty of being cruel and negligent to animals.
    I’m also not understanding why it would be so difficult to set something up.
    So much money is wasted on so much other bullshit I’m sure they could find a way to implement this.
    The public needs to makes some noise and demands

    The son in law should never had this sweet pup since he surrendered to due to bring accused of animal cruelty,!!
    If that was part of the punishment not having another animal, he should be charged for that
    And the Father in Law is doing the same, why chain any dig to anything???
    Surely the dog let him know he was there when he went to the truck,!!
