"It's now morphed into a case of irresponsible pet ownership," Dorson said. "They think that it OK to let the dog chase them as they drive down a busy highway. We find this very strange. It's a small miracle that no one has been hurt, either a passing motorist swerving to miss him, or the dog himself."
According to Dorson, exposing the dog to such dangers not only "shows a real lack of care and concern," but it is also against the law:
"I told them it was illegal to do this, and they said 'Oh? When did they pass that law?' I said, 'Probably 50 or 60 years ago.'"
Fortunately, Humane Society staff are dedicated to getting this dog, whose life has been threatened time and time again, out of harm's way for good.
"We're going to get the dog the next time he's loose and cite those people," he said. "Things are going to happen for the better. This is just day one of a process that will end in our favor. They don't care about this dog enough, but we do."
