Stolen dogs are often used as bait dogs for training fighting dogs.

How common is dog fighting in Sioux Falls? Doesn’t seem like the right demographic region.

I’m thinking it’s some kind of psychopath targeting these dogs.

In any event, it’s a sad story.

You wouldn’t think that, but lots of dark stuff like this happens all over the US.

Yes, whatever is happening is unfortunate.

That's what happened to my neighbor's German Shepherd.

Around here a breed like that could be baited by a coyote into jumping the fence and chasing it.

To where the rest of the pack is waiting.

Happens.

That’s very sad.

German shepherds, along with labs, are amongst my favourite kinds of dogs.

This is terrible. I never leave my dogs out for long without checking on them, partly because of hearing about this kind of story. This poor woman and her dogs. I can’t imagine how distraught she must be.

I just can’t imagine picking German Shepherds as fighting dummies. Usually it seems more medium-sized dogs are picked, if not smaller, too.

One of the things these evil people do is make it impossible for the dog to fight back. The dogs teeth are often knocked out or they will be tied up, so they can’t run or defend themselves or perhaps be put in a gunny sack.

You don’t have to limit yourself to small dogs when you do that.

It’s a horrible thing.

Fair warning to anyone thinking of stealing my boy, a GSD...... I come with the dog.

Yes, but there is a moral difference between a dog being tricked into chasing a coyote into the pack’s trap, and a dog being stolen from its owner.

Laws don’t apply to coyotes (the four legged kind), but they do apply to criminals (the two legged kind).

I would expect that the German shepherd is restrained and/or handicapped in such cases, to prevent it from effectively fighting back.

Too bad this story didn’t end with, “Righteous Owner picked up an AR-15 and dispatched the Criminal, saving the German Shepherd and saving the taxpayers from having to pay for Criminal’s incarceration and trial expenses.”

(I know, I’m a sucker for happy endings. )

What a beautiful photo of a GSD, the way they are supposed to look - at least until the idiots at the Westminster Kennel Club got involved.

Now most USA GSDs are bred to practically walk on their hocks, and as a result, they can’t work, and need to be imported from abroad.
