  • No good deed goes unpunished
  • What a load of crap... Seriously... An arrest should never have been made in this. If anything it should have been a civil matter,,
  • So shines a good deed in a weary world.

  • Prime candidate for jury nullification.
  • So dropping the dog off at the pound was out of the question?
  • Bullshiat situation resulting from the cops not using any common sense. I usually defend them, but this is crap. If they thought he did something wrong they could have ticked him to force the issue into a court room--not arrested him.

    If he lost his job, why not set up a FARKUS donation thingie for him?
  • If you see a pet running around, chances are it belongs to somebody. Unless it looks like it hasn't eaten in days I'd let it go, it'll most likely find its way home. Still, for this guy to be arrested is a little ridiculous.
  • A few months ago? If the guy made an honest attempt at finding the owners and then gave the dog a home, isn't there a statute of limitations? What is it for a lost wallet with money inside and no ID, 30 days? 90?

    And he gets arrested for this?

    The shelters near me charge you to drop off an animal even if you don't own it. I would have done the same thing as this guy. The court should turn this around and charge the owner with neglect or leash laws for going after this guy. It was their fault the dog was playing in traffic to begin with, and wasting the courts time with this kind of BS should be punished.
  • Welcome to F**king Texa$$.
  • Crazy, irrate, lazy dog owner 1, hardworking, well meaning single father 0. This is how it looks when the system works properly.
  • octopied: No good deed goes unpunished


    Came here to mention that.
  • Yeah, this happened to some relatives of mine. They live in the country and let their dogs run in the yard, and one day one of the dogs went missing. Fast forward to 2 weeks later when they see the dog chained up in some migrant worker camp. Apparently some migrant workers had passed their house and saw the dog "running in the road" and decided it was up for grabs.

    Long story short, people steal dogs, especially expensive dogs like the one in the article. The guy should have been arrested. Stealing dogs is a crime.
  • The neighbor who suggested that the dog be allowed to continue running on the streets needs to be horse whipped. The owner of the dog needs to be shot, the cop fired and the man who saved the dog should get a reward.

    I did not realize that Texas was full of so many douche bags. Oh sure, they are Republitards, but this is beyond their usual stupidity.
  • How is this not animal neglect on the owner?

    This is why I never help strangers. Obviously lost stuff: won't try to find the owner, won't even touch it. Injured person: you're on your own. Lost crying kid: won't even look at 'em twice. Life is hard enough without getting effed up for trying to help people who are pissed off that they screwed up and want to take it out on me.
  • If this is how it went down, then the cop who arrested him should be fired.

    Take the complaint, get the guy's info and pass it to the DA.
  • He wasn't fired, he lost a locksmith license. Totes different.Tradegy though.
  • Well this makes the whole dog-burger fast-food industry look bad. People in America will never acclimate to eating tasty, tasty dog meat in convenient drive-thru burgers as long as stories like this are propagated in the media.
  • Should have taken it to a shelter or vet to get scanned for a chip. Probably wouldn't have been a problem finding the owner if it was chipped.
  • doglover: He wasn't fired, he lost a locksmith license. Totes different.


    Worse, actually. Now it's not just that he has to find a new employer, but he cannot practice his vocation with anyone.

    This is such utter horseshiat.
  • As someone who just found a lost kitty on Monday and is still looking for the owner, I'm getting a kick...

    Microchip your animals. It's cheap and can save their life and get them back home. The $50 is chump change when you're holding an empty leash.

  • This is farked up. I hope he wins the case and gets acquitted. Once he has, he should sue his accuser for damages and indiscriminate lawsuit.

    Dog owners who willfully disregard laws regarding leashes, collars, rabies tags, etc. should expect to be farked over and receive no protection from the law in any matter regarding the fate of the dog.
  • If there were no tags and they can't find the dog now, how can they prove the crime? It could have been any dog of similar breed. A hallucination. Guy needs a good lawyer.
