Wow…it is truly sad how pets get absolutely NO RESPECT when it comes to the law!
Jeremy Aguilar is a military veteran who has fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as responding to Hurricane Katrina relief with the Oklahoma National Guard.
Aguilar now has his pooch, four year old Dutch, to help him through his disabilities, but unfortunately, the selfishness of one person may sentence this dog to death.
Dutch was left with his former owner while Aguilar and his wife, Heather, drove a friend to the airport. The former owner then began to MERCILESSLY beat Dutch, first punching the dog repeatedly in the face before her hands hurt…then she used a metal pole.
The pooch finally defended himself and bit the owner on the leg and butt….and now Dutch has been labeled a vicious dog and faces euthanasia as the former owner relentless pursues legal action.
The former owner even ADMITTED to beating the dog and the Aguilars have agreed to send the pooch (who is EXTREMELY non-violent) to rehabilitation training, surrendering the dog if the training failed. The former owner refused these terms.
So…you can openly admit to beating a dog senseless and nothing happens to you….
Only the dog suffers….
The Aguilars are asking the public for support, setting up a Facebook page (HERE), a petition (HERE), as well as asking for donations.
Dutch's next court date is February 14, and Jeremy Aguilar may even go to jail if the court rules so…
Yeah….the wrong people are going to jail here…
