Lisa Parker of Everett, Washington woman posted a ‘dog shaming’ photo to Facebook that showed her dog with a pee pad wrapped around his head. The caption read, “Successful dog shaming. Ludo thought it would be a good idea to wet the floor, five minutes after his goodnight potty run. He is finding out…not so bright! I sopped it up with a wet pad, before scrubbing it with oxyclean and vinegar. He is now wearing this creation.”
Parker also posted some additional housetraining tips that didn’t help in the case against her.
“Sh** in the house, get it stuffed in your mouth and taped shut. Yes, it’s a nasty job but…it works!”
Parker’s post immediately went viral, with dog lovers from around the globe demanding justice for the shamed dog and sparking an investigation by the Everett Animal Shelter. Now, Parker is facing animal cruelty charges for the incident.
“After reviewing the animal control officer’s report and interviewing witnesses, the City Prosecutor’s Office has decided to file charges of animal cruelty in this case. This is a misdemeanor crime with a maximum penalty of 90 days in jail and/or $1,000 fine. The defendant will be summoned for a first appearance at the Everett Municipal Court in two weeks,” the shelter said.
Now, a petition urging officials to prosecute to the full extent of the law has already gotten thousands of signatures.
I can’t stand reading stuff like this. Some people should never have a pet…would they do that to their child??? Hope this dog is taken away and adopted by a LOVING family. If she get 90 days in jail or the $1,000 fine can you imagine what she will do to the poor dog after that??
What happened to the dog did it get taken from her
I agree. This woman has no business having a pet if her floor is more important than her family member. Patience is necessary when dog is being trained.
If you aren’t patient, don’t have a pet. They didn’t ask you to adopt them. So treat them with love.I hope she gets a hefty fine and probation.
I think she should wear the pad…. what a moronic owner. I hope the dog gets rehomed or something positive comes of this.
People are pretty stupid. You train a dog with LOVE!!!
Why don’t you pick up a book on dog behavior and read it. She should NEVER be allowed to have a dog again!! I am a canine behavior specialist and this is beyond the bounds of being a decent human being let alone being in charge of another life form. Too bad she won’t be treated this way for her “bad decisions”. I would love to be the judge on this one.
She didn’t teach the dog a thing, except to be afraid of her!
What happened to dog? Does she keep the dog? This dog could be scarred for life. Poor baby.
