    No sympathy

    I read the recent article in The Times Argus about the seizure of the dog. I am the owner of the “elderly blind dog,” that is actually not so elderly.

    Zoe, my German Shepherd/Husky mix is two and a half years old. Brandy Todd had been warned two previous times, verbally, about the issue with her dog “slipping” out of its collar. My grandmother told Brandy to put a harness on it so she would have more control. Brandy did not listen.

    The dog, Kodiak, on the third time, charged at Zoe while my mother was outside with her and attacked her. Zoe was on a leash all three times of the attacks, and on the third and final attack, my grandmother told Brandy she had given her too many chances and was done with the dog.

    We are not the only ones to file a complaint, Brandy had many complaints about the dog which she failed to do anything about. So it’s no wonder that the town doesn’t feel sorry for her, when she failed to do anything about the control of her own animal, if she truly cared about keeping her dog.

    With three written complaints and numerous voiced complaints, isn’t that a sign she wasn’t doing much about her dog’s control?
