Dallas, an 8-month old miniature bull terrier,  had been taken to Off Leash K9 Training LLC, Johnson City, TN on March 18 for the two-week training period.  On May 2, Dallas' family received a text message from Randi LaFerney, owner of Off Leash, asking the dogs owners to call them. At that point, the owners were notified the dog had passed away overnight. LaFerney and Andrew Hunigan, a trainer at the facility, are both charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, a felony in Tennessee.

We, the undersigned, request that the defendants be prosecuted and sentenced to the fullest extent of the law.  This appears to be flagrant neglect/abuse that resulted in Dallas' death by starvation. We are sick of seeing our pets abused, abandoned, neglected and tortured.  We want to start by showing the rest of the country that we are not heartless and we care for these sentient beings. We also call for regular inspections of all facilities that board to train, or day care facilities.  Our legislators need to take responsibilities for the lax and superficial animal welfare laws in this state.  #JusticeForDallas
