Shayla, our 9 yr old greygirl, was attacked by a neighbors dog while on our nightly walk with another neighbor and her 2 airdales. My 2 little grandsons were along for the walk and got caught in the middle of the fray. Thank God they weren't hurt. We rushed Shayla to the e-vet but she couldn't be stabilized. After 12 hours the decision was made to euthanize her due to the severity of the bites. This is everyones nightmare. The dog (a wheaten terrier) was regularly staked out in his front yard and slipped out of his collar to attack Shayla 3 times, no less. We are all sooo sad and soooo angry that it's hard to talk about. Our other greyboy deeply misses his sister. Shay was a very gentle, non-confrontational girl. She was my velcro dog. All she wanted was to be loved. And love her we did.... but it wasn't supposed to end THIS way.

I'm soooo sorry to hear this. I lost my first Greyhound, Hannah to a loose dog attack back in May 2000. I only had her for 3 weeks so I definitely know what you are feeling.


God speed Shayla.......
