Article from ABC News:

A year-old pit bull named Honey survived being shot point blank in the mouth by her owner’s ex-boyfriend during an argument at her Brooklyn apartment in New York City, according to Honey’s owner and a criminal court complaint.

Honey’s owner, Asha Stringfield, 24, told ABC News today that she has a restraining order against her 47-year-old ex-boyfriend, Kenneth White, who she said attacked her after he got annoyed about the food she had at her house and jealous about another male friend of hers. The restraining order was confirmed by court documents obtained by ABC News.

White “repeatedly punched” Stringfield in her head and face, grabbed her by the throat, pulled her off the bed by her hair and pointed a gun to her face, asking her to give him “two reasons not to shoot” her, according to a criminal court complaint filed in Brooklyn Criminal Court.

DNA testing for dog feces on the rise in Seattle area
Article from Fox News:

Frustrated with dog owners who refuse to clean up after their pets, an increasing number of apartments in Seattle are opting to use DNA testing to identify the culprits.

The Seattle Times reports that a company called BioPet Vet Lab from Knoxville, Tennessee, is providing its PooPrints testing kits to 26 apartment and condo complexes and homeowners associations in the region.

Erin Atkinson, property manager at Potala Village Apartments in Everett says the messes are all over.

“There was poop inside the elevators, in the carpeted hallways, up on the roof,” Atkinson said. “They’re lazy, I guess.”

That’s why, since February 2014, tenants have been paying a “one-time fee of $ 29.95 for DNA testing.”

BioPet says in the past five years, the DNA test has been used in nearly 1,000 places around the country, and it’s especially popular in Miami, Dallas, Los Angeles and other large cities.

The marketing took a little longer to reach the Northwest, but King-Snohomish-Pierce counties are opportune sites. They are home to about 811,000 dogs. Seattle has 50 percent more dogs than kids, the Times said. One study said the average dog poop weighs one-third of a pound and t…………………continues on Fox News

Maine man fighting back after police allegedly shot, killed his dog in Louisiana
Article from Bangor Daily News:

Brandon Carpenter, an itinerant musician from Portland, said Wednesday that a Louisiana police officer shot and killed his dog Monday morning, even though the “incredibly friendly” dog was on a four-foot leash.

“That dog wouldn’t hurt a fly,” Carpenter said of his 90-pound dog in a telephone interview with the BDN. “Everybody loved Arzy. Everybody said, ‘Oh, he’s so friendly. So gentle.’ He was an angel in dog form.”

The 28-year-old musician, who has been on the road for 12 years, had hopped a freight train from Lafayette, Louisiana, to Sulphur, Louisiana, with his friend, 21-year-old Logan Laliberte of Auburn. The duo was on their way to stay with friends in Lake Charles, Louisiana, their backpacks, guitars and the 14-month-old Newfoundland-Labrador-golden retriever mix in tow, when they got off the train in the early morning.

“We were exhausted, and as we were walking, it started to rain,” Carpenter said.

They decided to find a place to sleep a little out of the rain, and clambered into the back of an empty box truck that was parked in the lot of the city newspaper, the Southwest Daily News. About 10 minutes after they got in, Carpenter said, they were woken up by a police officer who drew his gun and ordered them to get out.

“We were extremely compliant. We did everything he asked us to do,” Carpenter said, adding that he tied Arzy…………………continues on Bangor Daily News

Brentwood Dog Walkers Injured After Separate Attacks By Loose Pit Bull, Labrador
Article from CBS Local:

BRENTWOOD (CBS SF) — Two Brentwood residents walking their dogs Thursday morning were injured in separate attacks by a pair of loose dogs, a police sergeant said.

A 52-year-old woman was walking her dog in the 4600 block of Nunn Street around 9:30 a.m. when a pit bull and black Labrador retriever that had gotten loose from a home in the same block attacked, Brentwood police Sgt.  Mark Misquez said.

The woman reported that one of the two dogs bit her repeatedly in the face, hand and ankle, Misquez said.

Less than 10 minutes later, officers responded to a report of a second attack involving the same dogs about a block away in the 3000 block of Hudson Drive, according to Misquez.

The sergeant said a 46-year-old man walking his two small dogs reported that the pit bull and Labrador attacked his animals and when he tried to protect them, the pit bull bit him in the calf.

Both victims were taken to hospitals to be treated for minor to moderate injuries.

Misquez said officers were able to catch the Labrador retriever but struggled to catch the pit bull, which ran through the neighborhood, prompting police to advise a nearby preschool to shelter in place.

Police and Contra Costa Animal Services officers were able to contain the pit bull in a backyard, where it charged at them, the sergeant said.

Officers then had to use…………………continues on CBS Local
