SincereArtisan Posted February 20, 2007 Report Share Posted February 20, 2007 A couple came in with their two dogs to be evaluated for daycare last week. Their little one, a pug mix, passed with flying colors. Their big male, a mastiff mix of some sort, seemed a little worked up and over-excited, he just wouldn't settle, so we suggested that he be taken for a walk and then come back and try again. On the way back from the walk, they met a young, 4mo golden puppy who was just leaving after his first day of daycare. The owners let the puppy greet the mastiff, who immediately grabbed the pup by the ear and wouldn't let go. It took three people to get the dog off of that puppy. The puppy suffered no more than a bruised ear. The owners of the mastiff called a couple hours after they'd gone home to inform us they'd had the mastiff mix put down. I couldn't believe it!!! They'd had this dog since it was a PUPPY. They didn't consult a behaviorist, they didn't decide just to keep him home and away from other dogs, it could have simply been that he he was leash agressive. But they had the dog put down. Now it makes me sick seeing their little pug mix playing at daycare, and to think what they did to their other dog.....it makes me SO mad. It was so uncalled for.
