MURRAY, UT (May 24, 2017) -- Humane Society of Utah defends Santaquin family dog from death
A Santaquin, Utah family dog named Dexter has been sentenced to death under an archaic city ordinance. Dexter, a male 5-year-old Australian Shepherd, escaped the Bray family’s fenced backyard and allegedly bit a teenage girl. According to the police report, “the bite did not break any skin.” The Humane Society of Utah believes a death penalty is an overreaction based on the city ordinance’s broad definition of a vicious dog.
Muchie came to us a couple of months after losing our family dog of 14 years. My family was torn apart by the loss of our dog.
We came to the Humane Society with our daughter who was looking for a cat. We had no intention of replacing Rosie but while we were about to leave (without a cat) in came Muchie from a walk with one of your volunteers. Her sweet spirit melted our hearts and we knew she was meant to be with us.
I adopted Harley back on April 03-04 (I can't remember the exact date) and I just remember we were going to the shelter to look at dogs after our other dog we had adopted had passed away of old age. Well, of course, we found a bunch of dogs we loved and went to the front to inquire about them. When I went up front to ask about the other dogs the girl asked me "Did you see Harley?" - I looked at my list and said no..no Harley. She said can I show you Harley? I said sure. In a Kennel scared and a little intimidated was a black and white Aussie, named Harley.
For a good 2 months, my family and I were looking for the perfect fit for us. We then came across Flower on the HSU website and thought we could go visit her. The following day, we drove all the way down from Vineyard to see this cute pup. We went to her kennel and started playing with her. She looked so happy! Flower immediately started licking all of us and everyone grew a love for her in just a few moments of meeting her! Now almost 9 months later, that little scruffy puppy is our family's best friend. And boy is she loved.
I've loved cats since I was little but as a teenager I became allergic. I heard that if you lived with one cat for a while it would be ok, and I really wanted a cat of my own. Babe was immediately very friendly, and when I brought her home she followed me out of the room and everywhere I went.
Now if you sit down you can bet she will claim your lap, and she loves having her chest rubbed. My husband wasn't too eager about having a cat but now I think he loves her more than me!
I adopted Benny about two years ago. He was so timid and skittish. He was afraid of people and other dogs. He'd flinch when you went to pet him. He didn't know how to play with toys. With love and patience, Benny has become the dog he was always meant to be and I'm grateful to have him in our family. He loves snuggles, playing fetch, learning new tricks, and going to doggy day care. As you can see from the video here, he especially loves being picked up from doggy day care.
