A good dog, with a sad story, and perhaps an unfortunate name
Taken from my local paper www.azcentral.com
As a dog in war-torn Afghanistan, Target survived an explosion set off by a suicide bomber he had fought off, potentially saving dozens of soldiers' lives. But Target could not survive his time in the care of Pinal County's Animal Control division.
Target, brought to the San Tan Valley area southeast of Phoenix by a soldier who befriended him in Afghanistan, was accidentally euthanized Monday morning.
The dog escaped from the soldier's back yard in Arizona and was taken to the shelter. Due to the guidelines not being followed correctly, the dog was mistakenly put to sleep. For the rest of the story click on the link. In the meantime, hug your pet and hope this never happens again.
