SAN JOSE -- Police are looking for several men who stomped to death a 4-pound mini-Yorkshire terrier that was trying to protect its owner from an attack in San Jose over the weekend, authorities said.
The dog's owner said he was walking the 6-year-old dog, Shadow, at Winchester Boulevard and Colonial Way about 2 p.m. Saturday when three men approached and asked if he was a gang member.
The owner, a 32-year-old floor installer who asked that his name be withheld for safety reasons, said he had denied gang involvement, but the men attacked him anyway.

May they rot in hell! Stomped to death first.
They were all hard working young men who were turning their lives around, no doubt.
Idiots. Mini-Yorkies aren’t gang dogs, they should have figured that out from the start. If the guy was walking a pit or a rottie, then he might be a gang member. But a Yorkie?
That used to be a nice middle class area in West San Jose several decades ago. Looking at the names of the local businesses it is apparently now home for the “guests in our country.”
They will meet their maker!!!!! The hell will be throughout eternity hope
they enjoyed this evil they have no idea what is to come for them!!!!!!
I think the lesson to be learned here is if a group of young men ask you what gang you belong to you had better bring out your concealed carry and begin firing.
To bad he didn’t carry OH I FORGOT IT IS CALIFORNIA!!!!
You are very wise.
Them “Hey gringo, gang?”
I was down there this weekend and saw people on the BART who I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t see in Oregon.
The rich liberals hide in their enclaves, vote rat to assuage their guilt - and hope the government keeps the hoards at bay instead of coming after them, and meanwhile the ordinary citizen is left to deal with the misery caused by the bleeding hearts.
I live in a nice neighborhood outside of Houston. I always walk my dog armed.
God made terriers’ hearts too big. Many years ago our Cairn terrier was almost killed running a German Shepherd off our property.
There is probably a gang war in progress.
It likely started with the death of Ramon Ruano, who was gunned down in a parking lot. This was followed by another homicide of a man being stabbed to death, dropped off at an ER by persons unknown.
I truly doubt that gang members were holding a car wash to raise money for Ruano’s family. I’m guessing that they were friends of his, and they thought he was murdered by the gang whose colors the man with the dog was wearing.
Importantly, the dog owner is either highly stupid, or a gang member himself, for wearing gang colors in a gang neighborhood: “wearing a red sweater and a red Boston Red Sox hat”, which is gang wear of the Bloods gang.
“Rivals with Crips and Black Gangster Disciples. Red Bandanas and shirts and Boston Red Sox hats (for the letter B) Five-point stars, pitchforks pointing down. May cross out the letter “C” in writing Graffiti includes “CK” for “Crip Killer.”
Damn! You need to copy-write that.
I have more compassion for dogs than I do humans who can choose their own destiny.
no such animal as MINI YORKIE most likely runt of litter.
“I live in a nice neighborhood outside of Houston. I always walk my dog armed”
Smart, never know when some of those New Orleans folks whom never went home after he Storm might want to rumble.
There actually is a mini-yorkie, generally referred to as “teacup” to distinguish them from the larger “toy”. They may not be AKC recognized, but they do exist.
Disgusting. I did not read the whole article yet but I hope tread that they have those guys in custody
This shows how very devoid, dead and rotting the gang heart has become. Who could kill a sweet little dog, so tiny, but still so valiant?
You are mistaken. There are breeders who specialize in them. They are sometimes also referred to as Teacup Yorkies. Depending on the breeder they are also (imo) absurdly expensive.
Poor little thing. I used to have a yorkie. They are SO adorable.
I think they knew he wasn’t. They were just looking for an “excuse” to assault him.
Just on their way to midnight bassetbaw.
The poor little thing was a better finer creature as a dog then his human attackers.
Four pounds. Just about what my Ruger Redhawk weighs.
CK? So they’d better not wear anything with the Calvin Klein logo, either.
Teacup Yorkie- sell for thousands
Good, brave little dog. Bless his heart.
Curse the scum.
You mean the Katricians?
You got that right.
Loyal dogs will take on anyone; Godspeed to that little Fido.
You may be right. Gang bangers frequently put out signals of their affiliation, looking for counter-signs, friendly or enemy.
This can get bizarre, because they get so focused on this, they look for gang signs everywhere, even far out of their ‘hood, and from people who obviously are not gang bangers.
I got to examine this first hand, while in a good neighborhood far away from any gang area, driving with an elderly man. At the time I was wearing a cowboy hat and mirrored sunglasses. Leaving a grocery store parking lot, I asked him if we should turn right or left for our destination, and held up my hand to point in either direction. He held up his hand to point right.
Just then I noticed two gang banger types in a cruddy car, with colored bandanas on their heads, and a look of utter rage on their faces, vigorously making gang signs to try and attract my attention. Fortunately they were perpendicular to my route of travel, in such a way that it would have been difficult for them to maneuver their cruddy car back towards us, or even to take an effective shot if they had been armed.
Which would have been foolish, because at the time I had a sawed off shotgun holster with a side by side of 00 shot.
I expect they would have thought twice if he were walking a doberman.
If they’d had time to think.
I meet two kinds of people with himself in tow.
The good people who come right up and want to love on him and the iffy ones who act like they’re afraid he might see into their souls.
And he can.
Happily, 90% are the good people.
[he’s a good punk repellant]
I have a female Yorkie puppy, about 4 lbs., she is not a teacup. Someone would have to get past me and my 38 to get to my Yorkie.
It also doesn't mean that Yorkies cannot be selected and bred for small size, given a popular name and sold. Unscrupulous breeders exist for ANY breed that can sell dogs for money, so why should it be any different for unusually small Yorkies? I expect some do it right, and the buyers get what they paid for, and some don't.
Describing the hazards of owning and/or breeding small Yorkies doesn't nullify their existence either. You may just as well say that evil breeders have created a flat faced dog that is prone to eye problems... Don't buy it people! You are being taken! Don't shell out your money even if you like Pugs!
And BTW - the only reference cited by your author is: http://www.moonlightkennels.com/. Did you go there? I tried to; it either doesn't exist, or more likely is the site that states at the top of their web page: "We at Moonlight Kennels and Transport breed only Siberian Huskies". Why would anyone cite them on Yorkies?
The evil b@$t@rds that did this deed will rot in hell.

I think the Yorkie coat is so beautiful. It's like silk- and they don't shed.
I don’t know why they’d be afraid....
unless you told them that all dobermans are descendants of the dog which inspired the Cerberus legend. ;-)
I imagine that he’d also be a good Freepathon mascot. ;-)
“Help a hungry doberman.
My mistress has cut my dog food rations. She says that Free Republic needs to remain online more than I need an extra scoop of dog food in my bowl.
Help a hungry doberman. Donate to Free Republic.”
Actually, TOL has a more direct approach to that.
Hopefully she’ll repost it..;D
[”cut his dog food rations”?!? are you mad? he’d devour me in my sleep]
