This is the only time I will agree that dogs need to be put down, when there STUPID owners make them dangerous but you can't trust dogs that have gone bad and will kill another dog for no reason.My prayers are with this man he had no other choice and I know it had to hurt to kill the dangerous dogs.The owner should be punished for letting the dogs run loose, may they all RIP and run happy and free in doggie heaven.
You should be asking yourself what Buddi was doing out at 1am, too. Also, any dogs, regardless of breed, are prone to act in this manner when allowed to run loose and in packs. This appears to be the case here. Also, were any of them neutered/spayed? You make assumptions about these animals that are unfair. I do agree that the owners -- Buddi's included if he let him run loose -- should be punished.
Buddi was in his own yard- the loose dogs have entered and mauled him to death.
Lisa Wallace - Lisa - did you NOT read that Buddi was asleep, in HIS yard, in HIS kennel at 3am ... I rest my case.
I still think Buddi's owner suffered enough. Some people only learn the hard way. Luckily however he didn't have to learn this lesson with his children also.
Leeanna Beth I have no idea why people like Buddi's owner chain their dogs in the back of open utilities either. But it happens. I don't agree with it. Buddi was a chained dog. That was his life. He wasn't a beloved family member, if he was, he'd be inside like other beloved family members are. I agree. We had maulers in our neighbourhood as well. Council did bugger all. They killed a multi-poo and I think the owner of that managed to have the dogs taken from the streets. In my...

My dogs on leads have been attacked by dogs off leads. It's a problem...and nobody will do anything to the owners of the loose dogs. Many of them would consider themselves to be fine, upstanding and law abiding citizens...until it comes to the way they treat their animals.
I believe the owner of the agressive dogs breeds them for fighting and somebody in the council is involved, which is why he is allowed to continue. Big words, but why else would this problem be allowed to continue?
poor Buddy, i feel sorry for buddy and the othet 2 dogs, we don't know the facts here, only Buddy owner statements, Why? Buddy was outside at 3:00 am, dogs should be inside, that is cruelty, Buddy owner don't look a good person, poor dogs. The ones to blame are not the dogs, Buddy owner and the other 2 dogs owner are the ones to blame RIP Buddy and RIP the other 2 dogs.
VERY SAD, WHAT A SHAME.
Action should only be taken against the 4 dogs involved & especially their owners, as dogs only get this way, due to the treatment & training they get from their owners.
Owner has no excuse, how cruel dog.
This is very sad for all involved.
Before I was cut off, pet owners need to take responsibility for the actions of their pets. Part of being a responsible pet owner is to regulate your pet..spay or neuter them, when good dogs go bad, it's time to rehabilitate them and train the owner....sound familiar?
The obvious problem is the human in this tragic outcome. Loose dogs are not normal in most States and usually there is a limit as to how many dogs can live at one address. The man who owned the attacking dogs should be named in a civil suite and forfeit the right to own any animals for ten years. Dogs are NOT the problem HUMAN-LIKE individuals are. I cannot sign this as the law has a way of abusing limits of the very laws they create, especially local laws.
I don't accept animal abuse of any sort; however, pet owners need to take responsibility
I want to know what poor Buddy was doing outside at 3am in the first place, especially, if there's been this ongoing problem with these other dogs? HUMAN STUPIDITY STRIKES AGAIN. When will THAT stop?
Some dogs have to go to the bathroom. Don't yours?
Theresa Boivin-markowski - oh come on. Buddi was a chained dog. That in itself is cruelty. There are a lot of idiots involved in this story...
obviously the other dogs were also out. they however were not chained. they were running free would you like to meet them at night running free? the issue isnt the one chanined it is the dogs running free to attach animals and people. they should not of been running free there are laws against that. not against chanins.
It should be common sense that there are coyotes and wolves in a lot of neighborhoods! It is not uncommon. I couldn't agree more. He should have stayed with his dog and put him on a leash, if he really cared.
