Our pup Swagger died yesterday. Someone poisoned him with antifreeze.

Here's the back story. We recently moved to New Mexico, a short time before we arrived a lady was mauled to death by 4 APBTs. There has been a rash of dog poisonings since the attack.

How awful! So sorry to hear about this. Some people are sick and twisted. If someone has a problem with your dog they should approach YOU. Hopefully you can find the (insert bad word here) who did this and give him what he deserves.

Mike, this is just horrific and I hope they find and prosecute the sick, twisted individual that did this. I know it won't bring Swagger back, but people that hurt animals and family pets shouldn't be allowed to see the light of day.
All the best,
Lauren

We suspect that a hunk of meat was injected and thrown over our fence. We feel that all our dogs were a target. Unfortunately prosecution isn't an option without a person coming forward and admitting to the crime there is little for the police to go on. At first we thought that Swagger contracted Corona virus and treated him accordingly, a course of antibiotics and subcu fluids. Though the progression of symptoms happened so rapidly. Within 2 days of symptoms he passed. He is the third bully breed pup to have been poisoned since the middle of June. The police believe it was a crime of opportunity as we just moved into our house on Sunday and the symptoms started Monday evening and he passed just after midnight Thursday morning.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Until we get some security measures in place the other dogs only go out supervised. We have also resorted to doing a walk through before letting them out. First order of business is a privacy screen on the chain link fence and to install motion sensor lights along the alley side of the property. Second is to brush up on the food refusal we already started. We don't work dogs in town.

wish you could set up a meet n' greet for your dogs and your neighbors. Like put up a table, have some lemonade (poison free), balloons, put some cute clothes on your dogs, borrow someone's kids to pet the dogs to demonstrate they are friendly. Maybe if everyone gets to know the dogs, the less they will be to hurt them.
i know, it's a little over the top, but just an idea.
