A journalist who brazenly admitted to getting rid of four dogs in four years is feeling the wrath of dog lovers – and rightly so! Some people just shouldn’t be allowed to own dogs.
Dogs Trust, a leading UK animal charity has branded her behavior as “unacceptable”.
This woman abandoned her dogs for no good reason at all. Is her public admission just an attempt to boost her popularity as a journalist! The dog-loving public sees things very differently to her. She’s not scoring any points for honesty, only wrath for her callousness.
The real reason for abandoning her dogs is that they’d grown up – they’d stopped being puppies! Because they didn’t behave as she’d hoped, she sent them elsewhere – one dog at a time.
Shona Sibary, is a freelance journalist. She says she had bought four puppies from breeders but gave them away once they grew into fully grown dogs and their behavior changed.
One dog was given away to a teacher because she climbed fences and dug holes in neighbors gardens. Another was given away because he was aggressive with other dogs and two others were sent away for killing sheep.
Giles Webber, director of rehoming at the Dogs Trust, told The Independent , “Sadly, for every dedicated, responsible dog owner there are too many people just like Shona Sibary who are happy to give up their dog when it loses the cute factor or when it becomes too much effort.”
Dog’s Trust have invited Sibary to come and witness the impact of early abandonment on dogs, but we doubt she will accept their invitation.
Sibary’s actions have provoked an angry response from dog loves on social media:
