I was really sad to hear this. My sister's friend had this adorable husky/akita mix that I met a few times. Such a sweet dog! It's somewhat funny and sweet because the kid is one of those tough guys but turns into mush whenever he's with his dog.

Sadly, one week ago we got a text from him saying that they had to rush his dog to the animal hospital because someone injected anti-freeze in a hot dog and threw it over into his backyard. Of course, the dog ate it and as a result his organs were failing. Two days later, the dog died :(

It's just one of those things I'd worry about and people would always tell me " Oh don't worry, that sort of stuff doesn't happen here! People don't do that here." and for the longest time, nothing like that ever has. This was fairly close to my neighborhood, so the idea of that sort of stuff CAN really happen is disheartening.

It makes me so mad! WHY the #$%@ do people do that!? Why would anyone go out of their way to poison other people's dogs for? Or any pet for that matter! Why can't pet haters just go on about their business and leave the animals alone? It makes me so worried for my future dog. I'll never leave my dog outside unsupervised and I swear I'm going to be cautious around strangers offering to feed my dog. I don't even care if it's a kid trying to give my dog a treat, I will slap it away if I have to. I will protect my dog with my life!

I hate people sometimes :(

( but I LOVE you guys of course! :D)

I hate people too. I am glad I do not have neighbors where I live for so many reasons. I have a long steep driveway which should deter mean kids from doing this to my dogs.

People can be mean, scary and dangerous. I am not going to ban pit bulls, rottweilers, dobermans, etc. I am banning humans. I don't trust them.


I am sorry this happened to your friend's dog. I am sorry this happens at all. I hope there is a special hell/purgatory for people that abuse/kill children and animals.

OMG... Please give all of our condolences to your sister's friend...

I can't even imagine. It is just one more reason that I don't leave my boys alone outside. I don't understand the logic behind poisoning a dog. We don't even poison the mice in our backyard... We let the birds take care of them.

I'm with Tiffany on this one. I agree with her on both not banning breeds but their owners and the special place in Hell.

Omg. Where in Raleigh did this happen?
Im so sorry for your friend's loss. Humans are absolutely disgusting. It's shit like this that makes me SO angry, yet I'm not surprised.

I'm not even kidding. Humans are the scum of the earth.

I'm actually back in Ontario, Canada for a while. It happened in Brampton which is really close to Mississauga (where I'm staying).

I just realized you live in Raleigh! Where in Raleigh are you? I'm probably not going to be back living in the area until the fall but when I do, it be cool to know you live close by :p

Karma, I just have to believe in karma.............

I really do hope karma gets them in the end. It horrifies me that such people have to exist and why they continue to. It's the idea that people think it's acceptable to kill someone's pet for any reason they deem as reasonable that scares me. Heck, for all I know, it could have been something as stupid as " That dog barks too loud."

I agree. If there's anything in this world to be skeptical about, it's other people. Too unpredictable and as you pointed out, dangerous. I think this is ironic in the sense that the laws that enforce banning of certain breeds they deem as dangerous are for the sake of protecting society. Yet, the law doesn't even consider the greater threats that people can present, even children. The whole banning breed thing is bogas; it does not educate or encourage responsibility. It just breeds ignorance.

Or, just random. Our family dog when I was a child was killed by a random lunatic with arsenic. My most beloved dog was killed with rat poison and it was revenge on me specifically and had nothing to do with my dog.

I feel for him. It's a horrible thing and you really do want to see the person dosed with the poison and put in a room with a window so you can watch him/her suffer the same fate.

i hope he reported to the police even though there is little chance of catching the person - if it is random and they are poisoning other dogs it's possible, though.

What's really sad is that his dog didn't even live to his first birthday! :( He was still a puppy and it's stupid and horrible that he was probably poisoned for being just that. I hope whoever is responsible for this gets caught somehow, so no one else has to suffer. If not on their life time, then at least in the after life they will face the consequences. I know my sister's friend is still pretty torn up about it but he's been more motivated to help an volunteer at local shelters more now. Wouldn't you know? He fell in love with a puppy that was rescued from a kill shelter. So somewhat of a happy ending, but still pretty sad :(

I just really hope it's true what they say about all dogs going to heaven because heaven will be boring without them lol.

WTF is WRONG with people!? Poisoning your dog out of revenge??? I can't even - ARGH! Xellil again I'm sorry for that :(

I think he did but I can't remember if he had gotten much of a response or interest. Either way, little chance or not, I really do hope that person is caught.

yep stuff like that is hard to track down and doesn't seem to be high priority. It's only a dog. But you never know, maybe they will catch them.

And if not, let's hope for karma and a slow painful death by poisoning.

Oh my gosh this happened in Brampton! Thats pretty close to me. People are disgusting. How does someone even think and plan out injecting a hotdog? That is pathetic. A few years ago my friends deranged neighbour threw a poisoned steak into the backyard and her dog ate it. Deathly ill for a week, but luckily she did survive. I am so sorry for your friend, I could not imagine ever going through something so horrible. I hope that a**hole gets what he deserves. Condolences to your friend.

This kind of story makes me think twice about putting up fliers in my neighborhood asking for freezer-burned or unwanted meat (I believe it was Sprocket who did this with success.) I am worried that there will be some mad-crazy person out there who might do something devious like add poison, or somehow taint the meat.

Not that I'm paranoid, but in this town, there are just too many loons out and about...

My heart breaks for such an evil act against an innocent dog...

I agree with you New York Dogue. I did get a few freebies from Craigslist but I also worry some asshole is going to poison it. Because you never know. People put razor blades in apples at halloween for KIDS, I am sure people would just as easily tamper with meat.

i would have your friend report this to the police and ask if there are any other reported incidents of this happening.

i am so sorry for your friend, but often times, it's not just a mean person. it's 1/3 of the sociopathic triad....

if there is one, there are others who do this just to watch a living being die....

if enough people report, there is a record and possibly a pattern....

it's worth a shot.

when i hear things like this, it's no wonder i like dogs better than most people.

This is such a small minority of people doing this that it would be strange to hate them for it. People don't understand why I like the night so much. Well the answer is simple, I feel safer in the dark. In the dark only the animals can see me and the people can not. Their are less cars, less people, a much lower risk. I had to learn the hard way that this isn't true for every place. I know I was walking to a friends house about midnight and a van drove passed me. They turned back around and followed me as I was walking. This is an old country road, even if I screamed no one would have heard me. I was a teenager and back then cell phones weren't cheap so I didn't have one. I just kept walking like I wasn't worried even though I was clearly being followed. I saw a driveway up ahead, if they are going to get me that is going to be their spot. Sure enough they pulled right into the driveway cutting off my path, and again they didn't know me and I was going to use that to my advantage. I had no idea how many people were in that car but I knew the driver didn't want to die. I faced the driver, turned my casual walk to a much faster and turned all my fear into pure aggression as I headed right towards the driver while reaching into my pants like I was going for a gun. I was bluffing so I had to do it right. They fell for it. The driver pulled out and took off. I never walked down that street at night alone again.
