A warning to pet parents who have workers come to their home

We're posting this story as a warning to pet parents who have workers come to their home. 
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.

PLEASE Comment on their page: https://www.facebook.com/CenterPointEnergy

Dog hit with wrench by contractor in viral video has died

- After a video showing a contractor hitting a pair of dogs with a wrench gained national attention last month, one of the dogs died this week from its injuries.
A homeowner in Texas released video of an energy company contractor striking his dogs with a wrench that now has more than a million views and since it was posted a few weeks ago, one of the dogs has died.
The video shows the two Weimaraner bird dogs approaching the contractor, who was working for CenterPoint Energy. As they get closer, he begins lashing out at the dogs with a wrench. After they were hit, the dogs ran away from the man.

Homeowner Mike Wilcox said the worker faces the $2,000 vet bill accrued while experts took care of the injured dogs.

CenterPoint released a statement on the incident, claiming: "We have determined that a CenterPoint Energy contractor was at this address on this date. CenterPoint Energy does not condone or tolerate abuse of animals by our employees or our contractors. We have notified the contract company and they have assured us that they will conduct a full investigation into the incident.”

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
