Melissa Grant: Brett Neil of Rochester NY was arrested today and charged with abuse! Princess is at Lollypop Farm, The Humane Society of Greater Rochester, and is safe from her abuser!

Rochester, New York.  A German Shepard believed to be named “Princess” continues to endure abuse from her owner.  Below are two videos that prove this helpless animal is suffering.  In the first video, two children open fire at the dog with paintball guns.  Though their father is “washing his car,” the children are never once reprimanded.  The heartbreaking second video shows Princess’s owner not only repeatedly hosing her in the face at close range but beating her with a rake until it breaks, while she cries for mercy. 

Video #1 - German Shepard Abuse (Please watch full video)

Video #2 - German Shepard Abuse  (Please watch full video)

When calling the Humane Society, they stated they needed proof. There are now two videos that prove this man is clearly abusing this dog.  After reviewing the videos, an investigator went to the house.  The man (an employee of the city of Rochester) in the video was arrested last night but has returned home this morning.  Princess is still in his household and is believed to be in danger. 

We are not only petitioning to charge this man but also to have Princess safely removed so she may never again suffer like she has and so she may find her “happy ever after.”

One brave soul posted these horrific videos that have now become viral.  Please sign this petition.  Stand up for those who do not have a voice and for those who are hurting and need a way out.



****UPDATE:  I called the Humane Society of Rochester's Humane Law Enforcement today. The dispacher I spoke to said that there is a case open on the Princess.  Officers went out on Friday, 10/18.  This petition started because they did not remove her.  Because of the evidence and massive amounts of calls coming in from all over the country, they have sent out 2 more officers this morning!  We will keep you all posted!

      I can't even put in words how I ache for this poor dog. I am sure the guy is capable of worse and his kids will be worse than he is if this doesn't stop. He should not only be charged with animal abuse but contributing to the delinquency of minors and just plain stupidity !
