    Default Just got this warning via EPI page. It is disturbing!!

    This came from another list that I am on. Since he favors shepherds I thought I
    should post this warning. I do not know this individual but working in rescue I
    receive these and feel obligated to send them on to others. If anyone is
    offended please just delete.

    He sounds like a new breed of wacko. Wonder what's happening to these dogs? Thanks for sharing that.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    I don't get people. Why on earth would someone do
    stuff like this. Really I'm just at a loss for words over
    this. Maybe one of these days a Shepard will get him
    back for what he has done.

    That is just awful. I think spreading news like this around is so important so this person can be stopped.
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Anonymous
