Golden Retriever Riley Given Order of Protection

Just found the video below of a case from October 2007. For the first time ever, a judge had issued a restraining order on behalf of a Golden Retriever puppy. It was under a new law referred to as “An Act Concerning the Protection of Pets in Domestic Violence Cases”. In such a ‘he said, she said’ situation, and I am never too good at figuring out just who is telling the truth. And, I wonder what has happened to this family.

Sadly, domestic violence, child abuse, and animal cruelty are often closely linked and where there is one form of violence, there may well be the others.
