This lady in a local city has a floral shop in which she has her Westie with her during the day. Within about a year's time the dog seriously bit on two occasions. This municipality has a two bite pts ordinance and the owner got a court order to put the dog to sleep by a vet. To fulfill the legal order she went out and bought a very similar dog and took it in and had it put to sleep so she could save her dog.
Nothing happened, she wasn't caught. She is a friend (was) of one of my best friends and she told her about the dilemna. She also added that her dog now has a new lease on life as it now has no record of biting.
Happened in Green Bay, WI and I would love to see her punished.

That's grazy! How could anyone take an innocent dog and have it put down! I understand we get attached to our dogs but come on, isn't she afraid her dog will bite again. Please tell me she is leaving that dog at home and if not I hope people think twice about using her floral shop!
I'm sorry, but if she is still taking that dog to work I would report her, anonomously (sp) if need be, but that is unfair to her customers who may get bitten. She is being irresponsible. I would hate for her dog to get pts, but I feel more for the poor dog who didn't do anything to deserve it and got pts. People like that make me sick! Btw, not sure if you already said, what kind of dog is it? She was very lucky (if you want to call it that) to find another dog that was close enough to pass as hers. Not lucky for the poor dog of course.
