Dog Euthanized without owner's permission

A dog accidentally euthanized hours after going missing. A dog from Virginia had been euthanized at a local animal hospital after less than three hours after the dog escaped from the owner's backyard. The 17 year old Corgi/Border Collie mix named Basie was out in the backyard on Nov. 1 and wandered away into the woods, when a woman found her who thought she was a stray, brought the dog to a local animal shelter, where a veterinarian later euthanized her.

The veterinarian said that the dog suffered from a variety of health problems that's why they decided to taker her down. But the owner, Allen and Alison Holmes insisted the dog was not ready to go. And in addition, the animal hospital's examination report indicates the dog was alert and responsive. Now the owners are currently deciding whether or not to press charges. Unfortunately this case is not rare, there are several cases of accidental mix-ups with a local animal shelters that leads to taking down dogs.

    That's rude and very uncalled for. First of all, Euthanasia is not an easy decision. Thus, approval of the owner should always be seek.
