It was Wednesday morning when an employee of the asylum in the Maria-hendrika park, the French bulldog was to be found. “The dog was with his leash tied to the closure of the asylum. There is our guard dog, a dangerous German shepherd. The French bulldog was as far as it backward crept to not be bitten. The poor animal must doodsangsten pain. Moreover, it was the animal suffering from hypothermia, because it was freezing that night,” says chairman Fabrice Goffin. It was immediately taken in.Neglect
A first control pointed out that the animal is in bad shape. “The dog has growths on his head, see, and hear is not good, is skinny, has an eye that is not good in the eye socket sits and stinks. After being in a warm room was and he what food was snapped he what on and even started around steps”, Fabrice Goffin further.
There was a complaint filed with the police. In the meantime, would the former owner of the dog are known. The man would to his circle of friends have said that his dog had died, but has yet to be answered. “In any case, the leave of animals punishable under the animal welfare law. This is neglect,” states first superintendent Alain Peeters from the department of environmental enforcement of the Ostend police.Bad evolution
Also for Fabrice Goffin, this is unacceptable. “We will show understanding if people for some reason are no longer able to care for their pets. That a dog, however, heartless is dumped, we accept. This is actually the third dog that this winter was tied up at the shelter, in the hope that we could find. In the past was that little. This is a very bad evolution,” concludes Fabrice Goffin of the Blue Cross, the Coast.
