Skip to comments.Nizato to face trial in starved-dog case
Posted on 09/14/2010 9:53:29 PM PDT by South40
The felony case of animal cruelty against Kimberly Nizato was held over for trial Tuesday.
Judge Richard M. Goul found sufficient evidence for trial following at a preliminary hearing that spanned nearly five months of scheduling conflicts and a crowded court calendar.
The dog, now known as Courage, was removed from her home by a former co-worker, Lisa Whiseant, who took the 37-pound dog to an emergency clinic in Garden Grove. The veterinarian who treated the dog said his bowels were impacted with dirt, which had debilitated him to near death.

People who’d starved to death in Ireland during the potato famine had green stains around their mouths — from eating grass.
Justice for Courage!
The Courage the German Shepherd is a dog, but the defendant is a bitch.
If the guy could play football, all would be forgiven!
And hopefully she’ll soon be a convicted felon bitch.
You need to see this!
Nizato looks like she should be chained to a tree and starved.
Ms. B...thank you!! I’ve been following this story from the beginning...the emotions run ..... deep.
HOORAY that she’s FINALLY be taken to court!!!!!!!!
That dog is BEAUTIFUL!!! Have you seen more pics of him? ;)
No, I haven’t.
I am so happy that he is thriving, now.
Honestly, how can anybody DO something like this?
I have three little monsters, lol..
They are all fat and sassy!
I second that!
Did you watch the video of him?
He’s a “talker”!
Courage has a new playmate named Jenna, also from the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County. I have seen her before.
She’s evil. She worked with animals. She’s got a small child. She watched that dog starve....daily.
YOU HAVEN’T SEEN PICTURES???
Drats...I thought I could find them REAL fast...you’ll just have to wait, then. (please remind me...)
He’s in his forever home, and I guess they adopted a girl, too...so he & she can run free & play. And all lived, happily, ever after. ;)
Is that his gal pal??? I’ve only seen one pic.
The blond in the second pic is his girl friend... a beauty, too. The smartest dog I ever had in my life was a German Shepard, I loved that dog and she was always right by my side protecting me.
Amen to that!!
This is Courage’s new mate. When I met her she was a bit wild but I heard she is doing great with Courage.
I’m overjoyed he’s doing so well!
I don’t understand her “excuse” at all.
Awww! That face!
My last dog was an beautiful female Golden Retriever that I delivered (my X owned her mother and we had her bred). I just can't bring myself to replace her (not that I could) so I now have a bird.
I have a cat he could have a nice chat with.
You two ROCK!!!!
Chris, you met her, huh?? :) :) Lucky you!!
Me? I specifically ASKED for the wildest one of the litter. To tame her, to mold her, to train her..she is an absolute delight.
The online community out here is ready to hang her...
Oh, she looks so like my Heidi.
My last dog was a GSD, now I have a pair of Akita mixes. But I think my next dog will be a Shepherd again. IMHO, they are the dogs most like people.
I will never understand people who starve a dog.
Dogs eat anything. Donuts, Little Debbies, anything ya got.
I could see someone saying they can’t afford to feed a cat, who is picky, but a dog will eat rice, and that’s cheap.
They are just heartless cruds.
My dog would eat the fruit from the trees in my back yard. Avocados, nectarines, peaches and plums; she refused to eat anything citrus, though. :-)
But her favorite thing was tennis balls; she loved to strip them of their green felt which she would swallow leaving only black rubber balls.
