2 dogs escape euthanasia request, find new homeDecember 28, 2018
By The Associated Press
VALPARAISO — Two dogs that escaped death when a northwestern Indiana veterinarian refused their owner’s request to have the healthy canines euthanized have found a new home together with an Illinois couple.
The man who’d owned Sam, a pointer, and Cosmo, a Lab mix, had divorced and was moving in with his girlfriend, who said she was allergic to dogs.
He visited a Portage, Indiana, veterinarian and asked that the dogs be put down, but the vet refused because they were healthy and friendly.
Penny Emerson is president of Begin Again Rescue Co. in Valparaiso. She tells The (Northwest Indiana) Times that the dogs were eventually moved to Peoples Animal Welfare Society in south suburban Chicago’s Tinley Park.
A Lockport, Illinois, couple eventually adopted the canine companions, who are doing well.
