Glad that they caught her but whatever the fine was I still would bet that it wasn't enough. Rotten person to dump her 13 year old dog like he was trash. I hope that he goes to a good lovingly home to live out his days.

Good outcome. One of the reasons she may not have turned the dog in is that, according to the media, they charge $75.00.

Why not disclose the name? Must be related to Wheeler, Brown or Hardesty.

Just curious

You got the state wrong. This happened in Vancouver, Washington
