Well that is just rude, disgusting and disturbing. Some people!!! They didn't deserve that. There's a special place in the hot seat for that idiot.

Disgusting display of barbarism. How sad that murdering a dog does not get you real prison time.

Grunt, Nell. I thank you for your service and know you'll be waiting for your beloved handlers at the Rainbow Bridge.

God Bless both these GOOD DOGS!

My heart breaks reading this. I hope the scum who did this came out of the brush bleeding. To kill any animal this way is horrible & now, a person with dementia may never be found because these 2 heroes were murdered. My prayers for their handlers.

So sad, and sorry your life also was ended in a tragic way. You did what you were commanded to do. Just sit and wait, wagging your tail. I hope and pray they get the top maximum penalty.

Are these magnificent creatures now with the Lord Himself in the Heavenly Realm? Pastor and Author Randy Alcorn at certainly feels this is factual, and even devoted 2 chapters of his best selling “Heaven” book to establish his case. Many of his inspiring articles are at: We can also get a glimpse of the Glorious Reunions awaiting their devoted Handlers, Trainers and Owners at May the Good Lord comfort these intelligent and brave animals and their human family and caring departments accordingly…
