Couple Sues Shelter Over Plans to Euthanize Dog
Can and should Smiley be saved?
Smiley

A nonprofit shelter on Whidbey Island, Washington, has been sued by two former shelter donors over plans to euthanize a dog named Smiley. According to a story in The Everett Herald, the shelter has argued that Smiley, who was surrendered two years ago (!), is too aggressive to place out in the public. The donors, who failed to meet the standards for adopting the dog themselves, say Smiley’s time in the shelter accounts for his bad behavior and that he deserves a second chance.

Actually, "Smiley" was spared by a kidnapper!

Someone broke into the shelter and took him.
