It happens here in the states quite a bit. Dogs are stolen right out of their yards..some end up in testing labs..these labs will pay up to $100 for a large dog and $50 for a small one.

I for one never ever leave my dogs out on the lead in the yard..they are either with me or with my children. Too many things can happen. We have hawks that have swiped little dogs right off the ground...scary!! :shock:

little dogs are stolen out of yards to be used as "bait dogs" for fighting dog's. they usually ahve the fighter dog hooked up to the treadmill with some weights on it while the bait dog is in a cage just out of reach of the fighter and most of the time the fighter dog is given the bait animal (cat's small dogs ect) as reward. the world is sick.

OMG...i can't IMAGINE that happening...but with the world becomming so sick and people being so greedy for money, they will do ANYTHING, even harm innocent animals. i seriously hope the people who do that get reincarnated into lab rats and get elecrtoshocked every day! then they'll know how it feels. :evil:

I don't even like to think about stuff like that it just makes me so sad and want to cry :cry: . I can't imagine hurting an animal the way some people do :x . They just refuse to realize that animals feel like people do.
