What are the legalities of surrendering a dog in this circumstance? Would you sign something to say that you give permission for the dog to be euthanized?

If so, wouldn't it be required to be put down?
I don't know about this particular circumstance, but I know we've had cases in Vermont where elderly people have had legal wills saying that they want their (also elderly) animals euthanized when they die, and after long court battles, the animals have been "saved". I'd have been driving my dog to the vet myself rather than surrendering it.

This. It makes me so sad for that dog.

Yeah, that's definitely keeping the dog's welfare as the top priority. JFC. That's sickening.

This is just ridiculous. IMO, It would been better if the dog euthanized.

So...are all of his teeth being pulled or just his canine teeth? Defanged sounds like just the canine teeth..but those aren't the only teeth that do damage.

It's a ridiculous ruling and a sad outcome for the dog

From what I know, his canines are being grinded down and not removed.

Yes, I'd be doing the same.

And that is so very wrong to go against the deceased wishes. Honestly, if my parents couldn't take my girls for whatever reason, they are to be pts. Circumstances may be different for future dogs, but I'm appalled at the very idea of someone fighting to 'save' my dogs. I will make the decisions for my pets based on what I think is the best for them.
