I disagree. Something like this should only be made pubic when it has been undeniably proven... Now it is just a slanderous accusation, and we all know how that works. Whether Teal is found innocent or guilty or not, she will always have been accused of something like this, and therefore will always have that mark on her back because it was done publicly. Kind of like that girl in high school who someone accused of sleeping with their boyfriend, who no one knew if she did it or not, but she was still a *****. Find Teal innocent, and she will still be considered a dog abuser. Which is why this should NOT have been done publicly without valid and undeniable PROOF. And investigation shouldn't be done on a public forum to drag someone's name through the mud because everyone here thinks they're some sort of detective. This isn't cute. It's someone's livelihood. But by all means, everyone should continue stomping around without any definite proof and accuse Teal of abusing that dog, because it's just on the Internet, right?
And I disagree real has not posted any proof in her own defense.
Even if its just speculation with pictures, breeder emails, vet records I still think people should know so they can make the decision to let their dog either prove that the accusations are true or not. I'd definitely not let yoshi be that 'proof' dog.
