The person who did this is lower than a speck of dirt. The world would be far better off if this person threw himself out of a fast moving car instead of his innocent dog.


The following video clips are of a story about a rather mean man who was going to hurt a dog and another man who was a psycho and loved the dog. Please don't hurt dogs. 1) 2) 3)


Sweet looking pup

Anybody that would throw a poor, defenseless animal out of a moving vehicle should be sentenced to life inside a lion's cage!


Celebrate your history, heritage, and culture.


This dog looks almost exactly like my little dog. This story makes me extremely angry. Anyone planning to throw an animal out of a moving car better pray that I don't see them do it. I might just do something that I would later regret.


Baby pretty
