And now, on a serious note...

Calling all fox terrier and dog lovers!
Wire survivors in Canada need our help!

See that photo at right? Believe it or not, that is a wire fox terrier like me! An abused, horribly neglected wire who was one of 97 fox terriers found at a Monreal puppy mill belonging to Marc-Andre Laporte. Laporte was found guilty of two counts of animal cruelty at the St. Jerome courthouse in Montreal this week. Click here to see more photos

Almost 40 foxies had to be euthanized. The surviving dogs were cared for by the SPCA and later, with the help of devoted fox terrier lovers, found wonderful foster homes where they have been living for the past 2 years, unable to be adopted until the case is finalized. Laporte is only facing six months of jail time and up to $4,000 in fines. I find that disgusting - he should be locked in a cage forever or put to sleep - he murdered 40 dogs and abused 57 others!!

But it gets worse friends.
On Feb. 22, 2008 he will be sentenced.
And at the same hearing, the judge is to decide if Laporte is to get any of his fox terriers back!

Yeah, you read that right...get his dogs BACK! Are they insane in Canada? Are they blind? What is wrong with these people!? To even consider removing ONE wire from the safety and care of their loving foster families back to Laporte is OUTRAGEOUS!


So friend, today we are launching a two-fold campaign to prevent Laporte from getting his dog/s back. We know we can count on you to take action and spread the word:

1: Please go to the online petition. Once all the signatures are entered, we will print it out and hand it over to our friend in Montreal who has been instrumental is saving and caring for the Blainville wires, for distribution to the media (unfortunately it is illegal in Canada to hand petitions to the court).

2: Please take a few minutes to write a letter to Judge Jean Sirois imploring him to prevent Laporte from ever taking possession of his former fox terriers or of owning any dog again. If you can, include a photo of yourself and your foxie/dog. All the letters received will be put in a file and also handed to the media.

Letters should be mailed to:
Elizabeth Pierce
119 16th Street
Roxboro, Québec
H8Y 1P1

Please disseminate this information on your blogs, to your fellow dog owners and friends.
Thank you for your support in this important matter.

A sad AGC and his very angry Mom

Ricky Pepper said...

This is horrifying. I posted a link to your post on my blog and signed the petition. I will write a letter tonight and it will be a furious one. We MUST be the voices for these innocent lives, and we must also speak for those who have perished in this mess. There are more dogs out there that need help, so even encouragement in this situation could go a very long way.

We've added the message to our blog too. You've done a great job of taking this to the next level and we appreciate it!!

Someone asked us if the address for Elizabeth is exactly right. Usually there are more numbers... Could you check? And perhaps we could get this on the DWB News to catch more people.

Thanks for everything!!

Oh Axel,

I signed the petition. I remember hearing about the horror story earlier in the year. The thought that they might give that creep custody of even one of those dogs is horrible. I will add something to my blog to spread the word.

You are truly a hero for spreading the word about that piece of garbadge. I know if Mom & Dad had a bigger house they would get me rescue sibling.


Agatha and Archie said...

Oh Ax,We are on it.We are going to post this on our blog also.It just makes you sick Love A+A

Noah the Airedale said...

We're very sad that this person has a chance of getting the dogs back. It's just appalling.

Stanley said...


I came to you via Asta's blog. I've heard a lot about you from lots of my pals, and am aware of you and your mama's love and concern for all animals.

My hooman girl & I just signed the petition. There's nothing to say to that kind of cruelty, except, make sure it doesn't happen again! I'm praying that evil Laporte will never have another dog, and that he gets what he deserves! There's a very special place in hell for folks of his ilk.

I'll spread the word.

By the way, you completely deserve the award Asta gave you.

Goober love,

Bebe said...

My daddy signed the petition yesterday. If I could drive I'd be there now. I do not condone biting people, but I'd let it slide for this. I would be really mad if this guy gets to have doggies again. If so, who wants to take a trip!

Bebe said...

I hope you don't mind I copied your post, I did give you all credit, I cant type right now after reading that.

Pinot and Angel Momo said...

Axel, this is terrible. I read about this sad news on Asta's blog and we all signed the petition. My dad will sign the petition shortly.

Momo, Pinot & mom

Hey Ax...we signed. It's beyond awful. Mumsie's told us to tell you that one day she was searching dog abuse cases and a hit came up for ur bloggie when you first posted bout this subhuman piece of pond scum.
Mumsie didn't even know dogs had blogs or what a blog was. Wouldn't Mr. Pond Scum be irritated if he thought that another small cog in the wheel of goodness came from his miserable behavior? We found you and the rest of the DWB's community.

We love ya, Man.
