Abandoned dog will be allowed to live with her rescuers9/17/2012
In August, we told you about Missy, the German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix who was injured and abandoned on a Colorado mountaintop during a hike with her owner. The 5-year-old dog was stranded for eight days before being rescued by a group of volunteers. Their relief was short-lived, however, after owner Anthony Ortolani hinted that he'd like his dog back. After a month in a kennel while her fate was debated, Ortolani agreed to give Missy to one of her rescuers as part of a plea deal, one that helps him avoid animal cruelty charges. We're hopeful that Missy will be very happy in a loving home and hope her new owners will give her a pat from us. [Source]
Do you think Ortolani is getting off too easy?
