Prince JVR

Prince is an adult male Pit Bull (pronounced “Pibble”) who is available for adoption from Joint Venture Rescue in Stone Mountain, GA.

Prince has been in a foster home for almost 2 years. He is a great dog, will play with a few females but does not react to any dog that goes by his crate. The 3 year old toddler is now 5 years old and he is still good with her. He would love to have a home and a couch to call his own.

This little guy showed up on a friends back porch back in December, 2011. When they found him, he looked to have been sleeping and was settled in for the night. They thought he would be gone the next day and left him alone. But when they got up, he was still here, just sitting quietly by their back door. They checked to see if he had a tag with any info, so they could report him being found, but instead his collar had a message which read “My name is Prince. I don’t bite, Please love me”. Looking at him you can see that is really all he wants, to be loved.

Rooney

A Sandy Springs police K9 was hit in the face with brass knuckles by an alleged gang member after catching the suspect.

Rock sniffed out the subject, who was hiding in a drainage system ditch that dropped about eight feet down, DeWald said.

When Rock bit into Wimbs’ left arm, Wimbs pulled a set of spiked brass knuckles and punched Rock about six times.

Thought the dog let go after being punched repeatedly, Rock chased Wimbs, biting his leg to bring him down to the ground where DeWald arrested him.

“Our dogs have a high fight drive,” DeWald said. “The dogs meet the physical prowess of their rivals as a first line of defense.”

Rock had three puncture wounds above his eye and needed four stitches, DeWald said. His eye socket was swollen and Rock lost a lot of blood from his nose, but the K9 officer returned to work Tuesday on limited duty, basically hanging out in the truck and resting up, DeWald said.

The Supreme Court of Georgia may decide whether a family pet has legal value beyond its simple replacement value, according to the Washington Post.

People, it’s clear, increasingly think of  pets as family — or fellow people.

The law, however, sees pets very differently: They are property, like a car or a toaster.

Now the Supreme Court of Georgia is mulling the disconnect between those two views. In a case that could be decided next month, judges are considering whether a rescue mutt whose death was allegedly caused by a kennel’s negligence had the value of a used toaster — zilch — or a value relative to how the dog’s owners felt about her and the $67,000 they spent to save her.

In short: How much is a pet dog worth?

[W]hen it comes to damages for the death of a pet, state supreme courts have usually knocked down trial and appellate court decisions that award emotional or “non-economic” damages, Favre said, because they view it as a slippery slope. (Separately, a small number of states have enacted legislation on recoverable damages in such cases; Tennessee dog or cat owners, for example, can recover up to $5,000 “for the loss of the reasonably expected society, companionship, love and affection of the pet.”)

Courts more often allow juries to award damages for “reasonable” veterinary costs, Favre said, though some are wary of leaving that judgment in juries’ hands.
