UPDATE: LENNOX HAS BEEN PUT TO SLEEP - “Despite previous assurances otherwise, we have been denied the opportunity to say goodbye. We have also been told that we cannot collect his body and bring Len home. We have been informed however that we will receive “some” ashes in the mail.”
Despite worldwide opposition and multiple offers by reputable dog trainers to transfer Lennox to the U.S., the Belfast City Council has euthanized Lennox. I put off writing this post as long as possible in the hopes that Lennox would be spared at the last minute — unfortunately, Lennox is gone.
I have nothing but love and respect for the people of Northern Ireland.
As for the Belfast City Council, I have nothing but disdain — You took Lennox away from his home, separated him from his family for two years, ignored reasonable solutions that were presented to you, denied the family the opportunity to say goodbye, and killed him. You disgust me.
