Whitey Feels Mighty – Even Dogs Forgive and Forget
- Press Release, May 18, 2011 - Whitey is a friendly and playful young dog, so little did he know when two big, strong muscular dogs approached him one day that they didn’t want to play.  They attacked Whitey viciously, leaving him with deep puncture wounds to his face and his throat ripped open.  When the two big dogs finished with him, they left him in the street to die.  

Luckily for Whitey, some wonderful people found him barely clinging on to life in the gutter.  They rushed him to SAGA, where the staff was shocked to see the horrific wounds and terrible trauma caused to this poor sweet dog.  Whitey’s trusting but frightened eyes made the SAGA team even more determined to save him.

Whitey was given love, healthy food, a great deal of veterinary care and a new lease on life by the fantastic SAGA staff.  SAGA pays for all of the medical care and treatment for dogs like Whitey and can’t do that without the generous help of the public.  

Whitey not only survived but now he is ‘fighting fit’.  You’d think that Whitey would want to get back at the bullies who nearly killed him but Whitey is a lover and not a fighter.  He loves other dogs and cats and his idea of a great day out is a romp on the beach.  He’s a happy and loyal dog thought to be a Labrador mix of some sort, about two years old and looking for a home where he can live happily ever after.

Come and see Whitey and his friends at SAGA Humane Society.  They say a house is not a home without a good dog and a dog with such a big heart will fill your home with joy and love.  Whitey may have forgiven his attackers, but only a loving and permanent home will help him to forget that he was abandoned to die in the most horrible way.

If you see a dog that is injured or suffering call SAGA on 226-2366 and they will be there to help.

    I am so proud of Saga and happy for whity.  But my main concern is what the heck are these two vicious dogs doing on the street loose and free to attack anyone, any child, any old person, any other animal, even you and I.  The owners should feel ashame of haviong vicious dogs loose on the streets.  They should be charged and fined and prohibited from owning dogs.  Ihate these situations.

    A good friend lost her dog while on her property by a pack of dogs...this occurring in the Buena Vista area in North Ambergris.  These were not stray dogs however. They were dogs owned by local residence who feel their dogs should be free to roam. When dogs form to make a pack. they often go "roots" I.E. Wolves. I certainly wish the courts would sharpen their teeth and deal seriously with negligent dog owners. Bill Thornton, Laguna Punta  PS. These words obviously don't apply to the German Shorthair Retriever who always minds her own business and is the goodwill ambassador for San Pedro.

    Someone please adopt this beautiful boy!  He deserves to live the rest of his life surrounded with love.  This story is heartbreaking.  SAGA, thank you once again for all you do.  I can hardly wait to get down there and volunteer!

    Just like the criminals the owner of the dogs that did this to Whitey needs to be put down..... The owners need to live up to there resonsibility and repay SAGA for there medical cost. shame on them and the authority needs to come up with a BAN on dogs that are used for dog fight..... you all know what type they are.... and charge the f------ owner.

    Perhaps you should slow your roll a little bit. What happened to freedom? Please don't start banning particular types of animals when clearly it is the owner's responsibility. I can make a poodle vicious, although the damage may be less, the result is the same. Banning breeds is as ridiculous as banning say...races that statistically commit more crime. Sounds ridiculous right? How about children? Quite a few children misbehave and damage things throughout their childhood and juvenile years, but we don't ban them, instead we hold their parents responsible until they are of age. Think of pets like children, they are simply their owner's responsibility!

    Yes, if you wondered, I own a pit bull as wellas other pets and have children. My pit was rescued as a puppy from dog fight breeders. She is wonderful to her family but seems to switch off around unknown animals. Therefore, being a responsible owners, we treat her as say, a loaded gun. We take extra precaution with her to protect her from herself and to protect others, its that simple. The point of all this is...if you punish the owners harshly enough they will stop doing things like letting their dogs roam freely. Unfortunately, it would apply even to the well behaved loose animals.

    I'll get off my soapbox now!
