The thing that disturbs me most is the story of a man in the Charlotte, NC area that gets on the internet and supposedly adopts small breed dogs (Jack Russell) only to find out that they are being used as bait for dog fights. Please be careful about the people you turn an innocent animal over to and do a background check. If they truly want the animal they'll be willing to wait a few days. I wish I had the newspaper article so I could post it but lost contact. I've also been reading about several dogs disappearing from fenced areas. I crate my Labs in the house if I'm going to be gone any length of time. Can't be too careful these days because there are a lot of sick people out there will to do harm to both humans and innocent animals.
