Cry Murdered in cold blood :'(

My precious baby Scooter was murdered on Friday. My brother's 200 pound german shepherd jumped an 8 foot high fence while Scooter was playing and attacked and shook him multiple times, relentlessly.

I did everything I could to save him and so did the vet. He had 5 broken ribs, holes in his trachea, both lungs were punctured and his whole body was filling up with air because the puncture wounds were so deep his lungs could not get air when he took a breath. He also had unknown extensive internal damage. I could not stand too see him in that much pain. I debated for hours and hours and decided to end his misery due to the extent of his injuries and the almost definite complications from surgery. Oh how terrible I feel for being the one to make that decision. There are no words for how I feel right now. I am in so much pain. I still question if that was the right decision. I don't think I will ever be able to live with myself and what happened. He was fighting so hard to live and still wanted to be "Scooter", despite the tremendous amount of pain he was in.

What makes matters even harder is that me, my husband, and my daughter live with my parents and they are defending my brother and his poor excuse for a dog. They refuse to have him euthanized or destroy him themselves. My brother has trained this dog to kill small animals such as wild cats, raccoons, opossums, squirrels, etc. This dog should have NEVER been allowed to be violent enough to kill an innocent creature to begin with. He now has the potential to kill ANYTHING according to several vets. He has tasted blood and that is enough to make him blood thirsty. I am now VERY concerned about my 2 year old daughter's safety. I want to go shoot him myself but my father tells me if I do that I will go to jail and all of my dogs are going to be taken away from me. This whole situation is absolutely ridiculous and was completely preventable. Dogs are made to be companions, not killing machines. I will stop ranting now. I am going to go cry again.

OH NO!! I am so sorry This is terrible. I think you probably made the right decicion having him PTS because if the damage was that bad he probably wouldn't have been able to live a life that he deserved It's a hard decicion but you did what was best for your baby. I am so sorry.

As for the other dog you need to report it to the aniaml control asap they need to take the dog into quarentine and you need to tell them about all the animals it has killed. This is a horrible situation but if this dog is going to continue to kill and your family is deeming this ok then you need to take action to make sure this never happenes again. I do not condone the shooting of any dog i just want to make that clear but i do believe if the animal is a killer it should be PTS.

Again i am sorry for you loss hun, we are here for support.

OMG I'm so so sorry for little scooter !

Please don't shoot the dog - please don't. That isn't the way to go and your family needs to step up and take measures he never near kids...and other dogs - any animal actually....but it isnt the dogs fault...it's your brothers fault and I'm very sorry for that.

IF I were in your shoes ....I'd do all I could to get my own place and start fresh -this is a dangerous situation for your daughter.

You have my condolences for your loss. That had to be horrible

How horrible. I am so sorry for your loss.
Your brother's dog needs to be reported. That situation sounds
like bomb ready to exploded. I pray it's not someone's else's
pet or even small child. Why would anyone train their dog to
be a killer? I am sorry your in such a situation and it being
family only makes it harder. You did however loose a beloved pet
and if family can't support that, something is wrong somewhere.
Good luck to you.

OMG My heart is Breaking hearing this story. I am so very sorry for your loss.

Shame on your Brother for training his dog to attack like that and not keeping him under his control at all times.

I agree I would be worried for my families safety.

My heart aches for your loss. I would definitly contact animal control. What is with men wanting to make dogs mean? I just don't get it.

I know you're in pain - but how could he jump an 8' tall fence ? That's awfully high - are you sure he didn't somehow get to your Scooter another way ? If he can jump that high - then your family needs a new fence or will have to tie him up and that is NO LIFE FOR A DOG.....

I feel so bad for you - but try to not hate the Sheperd - ( I know that is so much easier said than done and I'd feel the same as you do probably) BUT - he was doing exactly what he was taught to do and it's very sad your little yorkie paid the price. Your family really needs to re-think their priorites.....IF a dog can jump THAT high to go after a small dog - he sure can go after a child....

Well said Vee. I too am sorry for little Scooter. Like Vee said it's not the dog's fault - it's it's trainer's fault who happens to be your brother. I too would find my own place and be rid of all of it. Elaine

Oh, how horrible!! As much as you dislike that Shepard right now, it's not his fault. He was trained to kill, so he was doing what he was trained to do. Your brother needs to be reported!!! If that dog can jump a 8' fence, he is a danger to anyone who lives around there. He could hurt your daughter or any other child in the neighborhood. Please report him before another tragedy happens.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

OMG I am so sorry! Poor Scooter! I know your heart is breaking, but it is very important that you DO report it no matter what ANYONE says. Yes, it is your brothers fault for teaching him to attack. It isn't the dogs fault. BUT the reason it is important to report it, is to protect other animals and kids. They may not put the other dog to sleep, but they more than likely will fine your brother and put him on notice that he MUST keep his dog under control at all times. The best way to do that is to hit him in the wallet! God forbid if it wasn't reported and he killed a child.

Default May God Hold You Close, You Are In My Prayers

I just read your post. I stopped and said a prayer for you. I know that there are no words to ease pain of your loss.

Rest today, allow yourself to cry, I understand your extreme fury at your brother's dog. Try hard not to allow this anger to permeate your heart. As justified as it is, it will only injure you further. right now you are experiencing so many different emotions. It is unbearable enough to suffer the pain of such a loss, yet, you are also feeling the undeniable hurt and guilt concerning the decision to set "Scooter" free from his pain. This type of decision is a private hell of it's own. Please allow yourself to be comforted by all of the wonderful people here on this site, who truly do KNOW that unique and inexplicably deep love that you have for your "Scooter". You will receive much genuine compassion and conformation, from so many of us who have lived your nightmare, that your decision to set "Scooter" free was ultimately the right one. Right, only in the sense that your other option would have meant much prolonged pain for "Scooter", with the great possibility that the outcome would have been the same.

I know how impossible this seems right now..however..try to realize that , although , you are feeling that your family is standing against you, and coldly taking the side of your brother and his dog, with no compassion for your pain, understand that this may not be the case all. Your father does not want you to hurt yourself further by losing control and killing the German Shepard. My father would have done the same thing, not as a rejection to the pain, but out of his own desperation to get through to me, and make me aware of how much worse I would be making it for myself. I know that you , deep down, must realize that even if you did have a chance to kill the killer, your heart would still be shattered and you would not receive any peace from the act.

I do completely agree with the others here, YOU MUST report the incident and the dog!! If this dog can jump an 8 foot fence , and your brother has so little sense as to train his dog to kill "ANYTHING", then this situation is completely out of contol. I know it also seems impossible right now...to feel compassion for the German Shepard, however maybe it will help you to heal from your anger, if you can realize that it was not his choice to become a killer.

Through it all, and with deep compassion for your hurting heart, try to remember that anger and resentment , breeds more anger and resentment. Try not to put your parents in the middle. This is an impossible position for them. Don't allow your relationship with your parents to be destroyed by this tragic event.

Again, I cry for your loss. Remember not to suffer this nightmare alone. You have many people here that will take your hand and help you along the road to healing.

God Bless You
