    I didn't see any details of the circumstances surrounding his shooting. Unless he was actually about to jump on the shooter or his or her kid, I suspect the shooter might have some explaining to do.

    Need to hear more facts before I would have an opinion. Was the dog habitually going onto the neighbors property and causing trouble? Had she been warned a few times? I wouldn't shoot a dog unless to stop an attack on myself or one of my pets.

    None.

    I've had a neighbor who let their dog turn into a menace in the woods behind our house. It's a real jerk move.

    What if it was your dog? IF it was not a threat, it should not have been harmed. I have neighbors dogs come over. Those that obey “go home” get told. Others get tossed in pen, owner called. (Owner called either case so they know it was over)
    I would give theM water , but no food in summer.

    Sounds like their 60 acres needs a fence. Seems they are rich enough to protect their puppie .

    It depends why the dog was shot.

    If it was just wandering around not bothering anyone, then yes I feel sorry for the dog.


    On the other hand, if it was attacking somebody or their animals, then no.

    I’ve seen some Doberman that were pretty scary, and I ain’t talking about the ones that chased Tom Seleck around on Magnum. Hurt them hard, and hurt them first.

    Sorry for the dog, but not for the owner; People have the repsonsibility to keep their animals under control.

    Both of the "partners" are probably multi-millionaires. They can certainly afford to fence their 60 acre estate. In the article, there are photos of Ms. Solo and the other partner, Mr. Stevens. They certainly look capable of installing their own fence. Just because you live in a rural area, your big dogs, children, and visitors don't have free reign to be on neighboring property. Having expressed these thoughts, I would have given the partners several phone calls, and involved local animal control instead of shooting the dog, especially if the dog wasn't causing serious problems. I'll bet there's more to the story.
    Edit: And another thing; I realize if you've always lived in an urban environment 60 acres probably seems like a lot of land. It's not. It's way to small to farm or ranch. Really, it's just a big lot with trees on it. Five unsupervised Dobermans will cover those 60 acres in no more than a few hours, then start investigating more land. Several problems there, just waiting to happen.

    We had three German Shepherds for years, still have one. Although they were fully trained, we never ever let them run free in public places, outside of our premises. It’s like leaving loaded weapon on the curb. Really, WTF?! Be a respectful neighbor, a responsible dog owner, not an arrogant shole.
