I own a Cane Corso that I rescued from a guy trying to train it for fighting. This type of news sickens me. Needless to say, it is better that the cops find this guy before a dog lover like me does.
For the record, NiCoal (my mastiff) is the biggest baby I have ever owned. A fantastic breed for those who have a loving family that you want to have protected when you are not around to do it yourself. They are loyal beyond understanding.
Sadly, I wouldn't be surprised nor am I surprised. There are a whole lot of seriously screwed up people in this world. And the un-mitigated son of a bitch who mistreated these animals like this is one of them.
