Tell us about yourself: I'm Keith, 28 years old born and raised outside Chicago. I adopted Duke, the Dutch Shepherd from a Chicago foster based rescue. Duke had an unfortunate first 2 months of his upbringing but he's been a prince around here ever since.

Healthy, happy, energetic, and super social.

unbelievable. The first one is unfortunate, friendly fire... I know it's tough in that situation, and I've seen some police cam videos of officers aiming in the direction of other officers as they shoot at a moving target.

and the second one, really? who in the hell does that

I know the first couple of posts were kind of a downer, so let's balance it out with a DS puppy touring the streets of Zwolle, The Netherlands...

18 dogs seized from breeding facility in Alamance County
Story Link
myFox8.com wrote:Several call and posts on social media sparked an investigation into possible animal neglect or abuse at a German and Dutch Shepherd breeding facility in Alamance County.

Sheriff's officials showed up at Brewers Kennel on Union Ridge Road multiple times over two weeks and they didn't find anything wrong.

...

But on Saturday, deputies and animal control officers responded to another complaint. According to a press release, this was the only time investigators found evidence of "possible animal neglect."

Sheriff's officials found four dead dogs and they say all the dogs appeared to have died within in a short time of each other.

Sheriff's officials say they also have no idea what happened. The dogs didn't show signs of abuse, neglect, trauma or emaciation.
