I got a message tonight from one of my oldest friends who is actively involved in the animal rescue community. She’s pissed off and I totally understand why.
Seems she saw this live video going viral through the animal rescue community. Three beagles, apparently owned by a man who owns D&B Pizza and Subs, were huddled in what seemed to be an old furnace of some type sort outside his restaurant. It was about 8 degrees that day.
Just watch the video:About a month ago the Providence news touched on a similar subject with another (or could be same because I couldn’t find a name on the guy under fire tonight) beagle trainer in the area. People have been picketing outside the joint since the rescue blew them up. The owner apparently moved the dogs to a secret place so now one could find them and people aren’t happy.
Animal control had already been there and said the animals were in no danger. The girl recording said that they had been checking on the animals and they had been left outside overnight in some instances. It’s understood that in order to become hunting dogs, the Beagles need to acclimate to the weather, in order to be successful. My old friend isn’t a bleeding heart snowflake, so, if she’s pissed off there is a good reason to be pissed.
Here is why I’m calling bullshit. If this guy was some kind of dog trainer he would have actual crates for those dogs. Heated water dishes and food (that isn’t in a block of ice) provided for them. These dogs were stuffed in a hollowed-out furnace, with some kind of grate that looked like it was supposed to be used for drying dishes, with a shovel keeping them in. They would be in a professional setting and not jammed behind a pizza place. You’re kidding me right? This guy isn’t a trainer. He’s an a novice asshole as far as I can see it.
That being said, the ACO needs to pull their head out of their butt and save these dogs. Take them to a professional setting. If this guy is a trainer he needs to be licensed for it. The dogs that run the Iditarod have to be weather acclimated, even in the friggan Yukon, but the people doing it are professionals. This guy is far from it.
People have already harpooned his reviews on social media. I’m 50/50 on how I feel about this. I don’t support rating businesses you’ve never been to. Just because the guy is a dick it doesn’t mean his pizza blows. However, he did stuff the dogs behind his business. So, I guess that does relate it and puts me on the fence. What do you think?
