Remember the story of Tammy – whose story I shared on my blog: Tribute to Tammy – The Innocent 7 Month Old Rescued Puppy put to sleep HERE? The woman who made the decision to put down poor Tammy just made a statement:
Owner stands by decision to put down dog
A woman who had her seven- month-old mongrel Tammy put down for aggression has defended her decision, claiming the person she got it from did not want to take it back.
Ms Alison McElwee, who was criticised for ignoring the rehomer’s pleas to return it, said in a statement: “The rehomer suggested placing (Tammy) in a long- term boarding home” and “did not want to take (it) back”.
She alleged that Tammy bit her four-year-old daughter and two adults.
Ms McElwee said the “difficult decision” was made after “considering the safety of (her) two young children and the quality of life Tammy would have in a long-term boarding home”. Tammy was put down on Oct 7.

The thing is this – so if Tammy did bite her daughter and 2 other adults, where’s the evidence to prove it? Regardless, the owner, Alison McElwee signed an agreement that which it clearly stated that in the event the adopter chooses to give up the dog, the rehomers have to be informed so that they can take our dog back – but she didn’t.
