This Is Just One Reason to Stop Dog Fighting: He Was Used As Live Bait And Left To Die...

A note from S.J. Francis: 

Dog fighting is stupid. It's a selfish act of meanness. Dogs are living, breathing, loving, harmless, innocent, intelligent and loving animals. If left to them, they'd like nothing better than to curl up at the end of your bed, sleeping near your side, or sitting with you on your couch watching television and snacking with you. If you're up for a run or a hike, there is no better companion than a dog. Dogs are great! Any animal lover can tell you that. I'm telling you that. I'm strongly opposed to dog fighting. I report all acts of it. If you see a dog fight or know there might be one, please take the time to report it to your sheriff or police office. Don't hesitate to contact the Humane Society of the United States. They even pay a reward for seizing and stopping dog fights. (see below)

This is just one example, a post about one survivor of dog fighting.  Please do read on and don't hesitate to share with others. Thank you in advance.

Cheers! S.J. Francis

He Was Used As Live Bait And Left To Die. His Face May Shock You, But He’ll Steal Your Heart.

By Barbara Diamond       

When Oogy was just a puppy, he was tied to a stake and used as bait for dog fighting. As you can see, the entire left side of his face including most of his ear was torn off. He was left to bleed to death and later found by police and taken to the animal hospital where Diane Klein, the Office’s Director of Operations, simply refused to allow the dog to die. With the help of everyone on the staff somehow, beyond any calculation of the odds, Oogy survived! After that, an amazingly loving family stepped in and adopted him, saving his life and giving him the chance to be loved.

Oogy’s dad says, “I have heard it said that you can tell a lot about a person from their pet. I don’t know what Oogy says about us. We do not operate on some elevated level of kindness. We did not do anything that a lot of other people would not have done. We just happened to be in the right place at the right time. There was no deliberation in the decision to take Oogy into our home. We felt lucky to be able to.”

Until next time….hug your animals. Tell them you love them. If you don’t have a pet, adopt one. Make adoption your first option when seeking a pet. Adopt. Don’t shop. Can’t adopt. Please consider fostering one. The animal will have the taste of home and the shelter will cover the expenses. Can’t foster? Make a donation or volunteer at your local shelter. Please, don’t hunt. Unless you’re starving down in a ditch somewhere, there is no logical reason to do so. Whatever you do, however you do it, please be a voice for the animals large and small. All it takes is one to make a difference, good or bad. 
Together, you and I can make a difference in an animal's life.  I’m one for the animals. Are you? Thanks for visiting. Stay safe. Be strong. Be happy. Smile. Show compassion. Be nice to one another.
