His name was Tiny.

Tiny was a severely neglected and abused dog that came to us from being rescued from the Rock Pits in Miami. He was emaciated, covered in fleas and ticks oozing Sores and very sick with Ehrlichia (tick borne disease) and stage 4 heart worm.

He was getting treatment and on his road to recovery the 1st picture is of him after 30 days on Doxi and his 1st heart worm treatment. (see the shaved spot that's where they inserted the huge needle with the poison to kill the heart worms)

A few weeks before he was to get his 2 & 3rd shots a so called rescuer found out he had and owner and he had to go back, she brought in lawyers and police! Regardless of the condition he was in when he came in and still going thru treatment. Tiny was just a piece of property nothing more! The owner got him back even though wasn't done with his treatment (it was being sponsored!) and needed to be kept calm and inside. The "owner" put him out on a chain and he was attacked by dogs and had a heart attack!

we are all beyond heart broken we are  just broken! Tiny was the most gentle, loving perfect dog with soulful eyes and we loved him, we all did and he knew it! The system let him down and we need JUSTICE for Tiny!

We don't care how he came to us, he was in horrible shape when he came in and it was love at first sight for all of us! We nursed him and made sure he got his meds and was on the road to recovery! Until someone decided to blow his world apart and condemn him to death! If he could have at least finished his treatments before they made him go back (he had 2 shots left scheduled in just a few weeks) he may have stood a chance, but no he had to go now! Tiny was nothing more than property to them! He was so much more, he was a loving, feeling, breathing and loyal gentle giant that didn't deserve what happened to him!

From the group that rescued Tiny: (Guardians of Rescue)

He was a neglected dog that had been seen for years roaming the roads far from his home; A rescue in the area had put up posts about how the dog was always out roaming and concerned he would be hit by a car, injured or killed. He was never neutered and impregnated countless abandoned dogs, often getting into fights with other males as he freely roamed about. He had been picked up many times -- once he even ended up near Tampa, but the owner always got him returned, but still didn't care enough to keep him safe.

After Hurricane Irma, Guardian crews were in Miami-Dade County helping with animals affected by the devastating storm, when they came across a dog that was not within the confines of a fence, but roaming behind a broken down, two-strand barb wire fence. Along the side of a road Appearing injured, they coaxed the dog and were easily able to get a lead on him. He was dirty, had open sores oozing pus, he was covered in ticks and his breathing was very labored. Very concerned, Guardian members rushed the dog to a vet where he was medically checked, his wounds treated and the bad news came -- the heart worm test was positive. Tiny had stage 4 heart worms and only 8% heart function. Shockingly, he was chipped -- and we found out why. He had been picked up multiple times by Miami Dade and they chipped him. His name was Tiny.

The owner did not speak English, but with the assistance of a translator he was informed the dog was at the animal hospital and in very poor health. Instead of concern for the dog's well-being, the owner instead screamed that the dog was an expensive dog and that the dog was fine, while threatening and demanding his dog back. He was well aware of the animal hospital that the dog was at and he was informed he would would have to pay for the medical treatments that were provided to help his dog, or that he could allow a rescue to take the dog and get the expense heart worm treatment his dog needed to save his life. The owner became more threatening with this information, demanding his dog back, vocalizing no concern for the dog. A local and very caring animal rescuer took and cared for Tiny while Guardians of Rescue paid for all of the medical needed, including heart worm treatment, to get the severely neglected dog healthy. Tiny's owner never showed up at the animal hospital that was overseeing his care.

However, during this time a woman, who claimed to be a volunteer at Miami-Dade made it her mission to get the sick dog back to the neglectful owner. This, despite being informed of the horrible life the dog had with the owner, that he was not an emotional support dog, and was allowed to wander all over, she contacted a Miami-Dade detective.

The detective said the dog was technically a stolen dog.

Stolen? How about a sick dog that was thought to be abandoned because he was nowhere near his home in an area where abandoned dogs are dumped?

Stolen? How about charges against the owner for a severely neglected dog that was underweight and close to death from heart worm when he was rescued about a mile from his home?

The detective stated to us that an arrest warrant would be issued for the person who took the dog to the vet and for the person who was in possession and caring for the dog; the detective and the woman both claiming Tiny was an emotional support dog and she accusing us of removing his chip and bringing the dog to New York.

Seriously? An emotional support dog that is always out running around miles from home?

The detective gave the person caring for the dog no choice -- she had to bring Tiny to the police station. There was one stipulation -- the detective had to ensure the owner followed up with the after care of Tiny's heart worm treatment or he had to be charged with animal neglect.

The Miami-Dade Police detective sent Tiny back to his owner, where Tiny was tied out on a chain, which is illegal -- and another dog attacked him.

Tiny is now dead.

Animals need to be protected from those who abuse and neglect them and are not just pieces of property. We are their voices and need to stand up and protect them!

Tiny and many others like him did NOT have to die!
