Calling a Staffordshire Bull Terrier Akita is one thing, but this report in today’s Mail just about sums up the crazy situation in the UK, where any scum bag can own a dog, and not be accountable to anyone. Nice to see that for once the RSPCA did some good.
A mother and her two daughters starved a Staffordshire bull terrier until it was so hungry it was forced to eat its own bed.
Diane Martin, 55, Amy Martin, 21, and Chloe Martin, 22, kept the dog, Akita, caged in a room surrounded by its own faeces.
The dog was discovered emaciated and with overgrown claws in September last year by the RSPCA.
Thank goodness young Chloe Martin has a happy event to look forward to!
