I wish i was there to help Mugsy - (SBT)
i feel really sad today. Last night on my walk with Otis i met a lady who i often see with her staffordshire bull terrier called Mugsy. She looked really sad and i asked her what the marrter was and she told me she had to have Mugsy pts on Saturday. I was so shocked and asked why. She said becasue of her aggression.
Mugsy was no good with other dogs and often tried to attack Otis, but with people she was delightful. I told this lady before to take Mugsy to the training school i take Otis to - but she never did. I also told her to muzzle her in public - but she never did.
Poor Mugsy was the result of backyard breeders and where the mother and father were never allowed to be seen. The lady was very upset as Mugsy attacked her cat quite severly at the weekend and she came home to a house full of blood and blood around the dogs face. She felt she had no ther alternative but to take her to the vets to be PTS.
I am so angry and sad at the same time because i know someone could have helped poor Mugsy - she just needed the training. She was only 3. I wish i met this lady before she went to the vet cos i would have taken Mugsy in and found someone or taken her to a kennel for a second chance. I feel so guilty i wasn't there to help her. I feel sorry for the lady who is very upset, but also angry at her aswell.
Just needed to share.
Sleep well Mugsy - run free babe xxxx
