The morning of Friday the 19th of January 2018, only 19 days after spending family Christmas with all our human and dog families all under the one property, one of our furry family member was told she had two weeks to either be put down to sleep or put into a cage for the rest of her life! 

Our beautiful family dog 'Elsie' who is a catahoula cross and is only three years old made the worst mistake of her life when she ALLEGEDLY "came at" the postman's motorbike. Which we have not been given evidence of. Now before I go any further how many people can relate to dogs becoming overactive when a motor bike like vehicle or a car in general races past them? Any working based dog can have this instinct...

Elsie has only been reported out of her yard once prior to this incident. How is it fair that Elsie has now been placed as a "menacing / dangerous dog". We were not assessed by a dangerous dog handler or given the opportunity to engage is behavioural classes if needed. She will now be burdened to a cage for the rest of her life. Even the two council workers were surprised that Elsie was going to be on this list (as Elsie laid on her back waiting for tummy scratches from them both). She will not cope with this, she will not cope being in a cage, she will not cope being away from our young family's children and away from her owners and locked up! We have been forced to face the facts that the only options MAY be for a working dog and one that is SO FAMILY AND PERSON dependent, would be to put her to sleep for her own sanity.

I want to clarify this this not the outcome we want, or deserve for that ALLEGE one mistake, on that one day! Please help us buy signing this petition to send to Moreton Bay Regional Council. Please help us by sharing this petition. Please help us by keeping Elsie in your thoughts!
