Family Comes Home To Find Their Dog Missing And A Note On The Door

As children, we are told not to judge a book by its cover. Things that look ugly on the outside, maybe beautiful on the inside. Something that looks rough on the outside may be soft on the inside. Basically, you should give everything and everyone a chance.
The authorities in Northern Ireland are not aware of this simple lesson from childhood. They sent four animal control officers and eight cops to a family’s house to ‘arrest’ their sleepaholic dog named Hank.

Why you ask? Hank, 2 years old, looks like a pit bull (period). But what the authorities didn’t know is that Hank is a cross between a Labrador and a Staffordshire bull terrier – he ISN’T a pit bull – he just looks like one.

It is against the law to own a dog who even resembles a pit bull in Northern Ireland. Hank was taken to an undisclosed location under Dogs (Northern Ireland) Order 1983; there will be no visitations.

Hank’s owners, Leonard Collins and Joanne Meadows were not even home, but the police left a note on their door. (how thoughtful) Collins said that Hank spends most of his day laying around, but he also likes to play.

The couple has raised Hank since he was a puppy and have lobbied for his release. Hank has a skin condition that needs care, or it will flare up again.

Sadly, under Northern Ireland law, Hank may never see his family before he is put down. If you want to join in to save Hank visit www.change.org/p/belfast-save-hank.
