As dog dads who have a beautiful Weimaraner in our family, and who work with Weim rescues, we were horrified and outraged over this story from Texas where an energy company worker beat a homeowner's dog with a wrench and killed the dog!
This bastard that should be locked in a cell with rabid dogs. We post this to make you aware to keep your dogs in your home or in a different part of your home away from workers. You never know who will be coming into your home and your dogs are your children.
I went to the company's facebook page and they said they are "looking into it." So I commented on their page: I work with Weimaraner rescues and am furious about the beating death of this dog by your employee. Our dogs are our children. - killing this dog is the same as killing a human child. There is NO excuse for killing. This employee should be immediately fired and arrested. Dog rescues around the country need to be aware of who he is so they can be made aware of this dangerous individual. The employee and your company should not only cover vet bills, but make a huge donation to Weimaraner Rescues.
