~How's Your Afternoon?~

Jacksonville, Florida
December 8, 2016 12:54pm CST
I hope your all having a good afternoon so far. I have been doing house hold chores and I'm about to start packing more soon... My husband called the guy that took Jules. He called from MY phone because the guy didn't know my number. Of course he wouldn't answer the call from my husband's phone but he DID answer from my phone #. My husband chewed him out for a good few minutes. My husband asked what happened to our dog. He said nothing happened to her, what are you talking about? My husband said she came here at 4 in the morning beat up and covered in ticks, and she has a hurt leg!! As soon as my husband said that the guy hung up on my husband! My husband is going to call the police and see if they will do something with the information we do have about him...

I wonder why that man wanted to have Jules - he obviously isn't an animal lover.

@jabouk I think he put her in dog fights and was trying to make money off of her. =(

Hello. I know I am jumping into the middle of a situation. Was it a dog sitter or something? Why did they have your dog in the first place?

@Sasquatchy We were rehoming her because she doesn't get along with our other dog. =( We thought the guy would take care of her but instead she arrived at our house at 4 this morning-scared, shaking and hurt. He didn't even know she ran away!

@LovingMyBabies Sad and amazing all at the same time! Crazy that she found the way back home! Sad because the guy who was looking after her to washed in a bath tub filled with ticks!

@Sasquatchy I don't know how she found her way back here but I'm glad she did. He must have left her outside all the time with the way she was covered in ticks. =(

That poor dog. Free to good home is never a good idea.

@NJChicaa She wasn't free. There was a rehome fee, just not a big one. Now I have raised the re-home fee hoping to find a better family for her.

@NJChicaa Thanks we do too. It was really cruel and unfair for anyone to hurt her.

@LovingMyBabies But in the United States, there is a law that punishes those who abuse animals?

Apparently Jules went with the wrong type of person. A shame Jules had to suffer at the hands of someone who should never own an animal. Hope the police can do something.

I read your other post about the dog. It makes me feel sick just thinking about it. I really hope they get that guy. Maybe they can GPS his phone or something.

@mommymonky Yeah it does the same to us, and makes us want to take things into our own hands-but we won't. I hope they do too-he deserves jail time.

You have his phone number. That should be enough for the police or animal control to locate him.

I hope that they nail him for cruelty to animals. Is he involved in dog fighting? That can't be legal and the police need to know if he is.

@JamesHxstatic I think he is involved in dog fighting but I can't prove it of course. Jules looked like a dog attacked her. We called and the police said they would look into it but they did not seem very concerned at all.

@LovingMyBabies Dog fighting is a felony offense in all 50 states. I hope the police are not winking at such barbaric "entertainment" there in Florida. Perhaps the local animal shelter could more easily find a good home for her?

I am sure they will do something him hanging up proves he is guilty.

@Tina30219 Yes exactly-if he talked to my husband then maybe not but since he hung up like that we KNOW he was guilty! =(

@LovingMyBabies Right. I am just glad the dog was smart enough and found his way back to you guys even if you can't keep him. I hope after the way this perskn treated him he does not become mean.
