Rescuers devastated as shelter orders euthanasia of healthy dachshund

Rescuers are devastated, but have promised to do  everything they can to save a healthy dachshund from euthanasia after the dog’s owner surrendered him to Devore Shelter in California. According to the owner, the dog has a behavioral problem including having bitten several people. The owner therefore made the decision, paid extra and ordered the dog be killed.

His story begins here:

“Heartbreaking as owner refused to allow the Doxie to go to a rescue. Paid to have it euthanized. The owners are the only people who can reclaim the dog and give the doxie to a rescue. There is no evaluation done by the shelter to re access, and verify signed statements to be true and substantiated . It is because the owner made a claim the dog has bitten before, the impulsivity (sp) of this owner’s action sounds retaliatory. If this bouncing loving dog has behavior issues there would of been many rescues willing to get the dog evaluated and rehabilitated. I hope they are never allowed to adopt another living animal again! Outrageous injustice without a fair assessment from a trained personnel.”

Check out the dachshund’s video as he was being surrendered. How sweet does he seem?

Approved rescue organizations have volunteered to rescue the dog, however Devore Shelter has refused. No explanations have been provided when and why the dog had been aggressive. Rescuers stating they would use a behavioral trainer have also been denied ownership of the dog. No official bite records have been made available.

When contacting shelter personnel, please be respectful.

    Yes, we have had no luck! Tempting to break her out of there. Anybody willing to participate? This fat ass owner should have her boobs & nose cut off for doing this as that’s property not this sweet dog. I usually don’t speak this way; but God help! Poor little soul so unfortunate to have such a shitty evil owner. I am willing to rehabilitate this dog as I have grown up a lifetime around them. Hardly scared. 99.9% certain this dog never bit; but she can bite me everyday. Shame on all of you involved! YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW. God will not have mercy on your soulless selves.

One would think that She WOULD WANT the LITTLE Dachshund TO have A SECOND CHANCE : This COULD VERY WELL be a VENGENCE CASE Like the Woman that STARVED CHANCE almost to DEATH a COUPLE WEEKS AGO BECAUSE HE SHATED her X-BOYFRIEND… CALIFORNIA : 90 % of the population Needs SNORKLES to BREATH they are so Profoundly Putrid… This SHELTER should NO REFUSED to DO THIS !!! WE have had over 62 dachshunds as rescues in the 38 years we have done this …. Never would this have happened at OUR RESIDENCE !!! and we have had a few “NAUGHTY ONES” But WE and God Loved them anyway!!!

    There is nothing, absolutely NOTHING, wrong with this dog, but there is plenty wrong with that vile owner!

    Maybe the ‘people’ at Devore need to think before they allow someone to sign the lives of pets away because I agree that this is very retaliatory: would anyone like to bet that this has nothing to do with the dog, but with punishing a spouse, or torturing a child, or even both?

    Whoever this filth is, they should NEVER be allowed to have another pet, and the people at Devore need to seriously rethink their policies!

    Let this sweetie go to a rescue now!

    Totally outraged by this owner’s decision. Have they not heard of behavioural training? If they’re too poor to get the Doxie trained but have enough to get him/her euthanised, then why not let an experienced rescue take the Doxie to retrain instead of just killing the poor sweetiepie. By its behaviour I can tell that it’s not a natural biter, but any dog will bite if antagonised, that’s their nature. Another thing, how can they be still counted as “the owner” when they’ve signed the dog over to Devore? To me, Devore are also at fault if they even contemplate kill ing this sweet Doxie under the circumstances. They should first, at very least, have the dog independently assessed before taking its life. This is almost as bad as the case of the Tanner pepper spray story from a couple of days back. No wn for the dog there, but in this case if enough people push hard enough, this sweet little Doxie could have a 50/50 chance at a good life where he is loved and cared for. Please everybody, try your hardest. I know I’ll be sending emails, it’s a but hard to do much else from Australia though.
