Gus has had a rough life and like any dog only wanted a safe home to call his own. That was going to finally happen for this sweet Staffordshire terrier after he was rescued by Maggie's House rescue until the unthinkable happened. Now Gus is facing euthanasia in Montgomery County Texas

He was placed by Maggies House Rescue in a boarding facility, Dog's by Nature LLC, where he was forced into his kennel which he is afraid of.

Because of being forced roughly into the crate his foot became caught he could not get it released and panicked. When Amber Rickles, owner and operator of Dog's by Nature LLC tried to release his foot, Gus reacted in fear and bit her pretty severely.

Amber and others responded by kicking, tazering and punching him. Gus was subsequently deemed dangerous and ordered to be executed by Judge Matt Madsen.

Please contact the City Council members of Conroe, TX and respectfully request that the order to execute Gus be vacated. http://www.cityofconroe.org/Mayor-and-Council/mayor-and-staff-home-page.htmlPlease follow the link and you will be able to find the area to email or contact by phone the City Council members and Mayor. Let your voices be heard, we are all Gus has.

      All lives are important to me. This poor dog reacted in fear not anger and Amber should know better. She should not be working with animals if she can't maintain the correct situation.

      I feel sorry for the dog as it wasn't his fault, humans are to blame for animals being the way they are.He deserves a second chance.
