These dogs do not to be euthanized!! I can't believe the evaluation was done in these conditions! Dr. Houpt should resign!

This dog is NOT aggressive!!! Young, playful & energetic but NOT aggressive!!! Is Dr. Houpt getting kickbacks or what??? She's lost her mind if she thinks this dog "serves no useful purpose"!

I am appalled at Dr. Houpt's lack of professionalism and education in terms of evaluations.

Vets who are competent with a medical diagnosis are not necessarily competent in animal behavior. Dr. Houpt's assessment of the pit pup was innacurate.

This dog did not snarl at the doll, nor did she bite the hand during feeding. This dog was nothing but friendly toward the witch. The doll cannot possibly represent a real child. This is a very poorly designed test that has been poorly interpreted.

As a person that has worked with animals for 2 years in both daycare and shelter environments, I can see CLEARLY that this dog is friendly. The bite to the hand was playful...the thing looks more like a toy than an actual hand, as does the fake little girl. She's a dog, not stupid or blind and her body signals were nothing but playful. Play bowing, wiggling, licking the "little girl"

Dr. Houpt is a disgrace to veterinary behavior medicine, and should be removed from any association with Cornell.

Because cruelty of any kind is unacceptable. Please also take a look at the petition I've created regarding human trafficking, and also sign it if it speaks to you ! :) http://www.change.org/petitions/you-buy-products-to-help-end-human-trafficking
