Petition text

Authorities in Richmond, British Columbia, want to euthanize two eight-year-old rottweiler dogs that participated in a small nipping incident in October 2013. The two dogs – Axle and Paris –  somehow escaped from their backyard and starting wandering across city streets. Being terribly afraid, one of the dogs nipped at the leg of a construction worker, leaving him with a small bruise.

Authorities have seized the dogs and inexplicably demanded their euthanasia. It is the first time the dogs have even wandered without their owners, let alone to bite someone. The owners have pledged to build a bigger fence to surround the property and vowed to euthanize the dogs themselves should other similar incidents occur.

The city is due to hold the dogs until April. Owners have not been able to visit them. A judge will decide whether the dogs will get to live another day.

We believe destroying them is not an option. We should focus instead on rehabilitation and behavioral training. Even the worker who got bit believes the sentence is way too harsh and does not even hold a grudge against the dog.
