I will be the first to admit that I often don't keep a watchful enough eye on my beloved dogs when they are outdoors soaking up the sunshine. That ends now, and here's why.

I totally sympathize with this woman and the panic she was feeling as she saw someone driving off with her dog. You might be thinking why would someone steal a dog from a yard in broad daylight? One of the reasons could be dog fighting. Seriously.

A local animal rescue group, Mending Hearts Rescue, shared the above story on their Facebook page with this warning;

Please beware and always watch your babies when outside. Dog fighters steal dogs from yards to use for bait dogs. Never leave them unattended.


People are disturbed, and it makes me sick. We all better take extra steps to protect those we love.
