Field Operation Supervisor
Dear Ms. Scolaro,
I am the owner/operator of Belle Kennel, in Porter’s Lake.
I am writing to you concerning a shepherd mix, named Brindi, which was been seized from her owner, Francesca Rogier.
We boarded Brindi for nearly two weeks at the beginning of this year, and had absolutely no problem with her. We are not the typical kennel. With several acres of fenced areas, the dogs are encouraged to run, play, and socialize. At the time when Brindi was here, we had over 20 other dogs boarded, and she was not aggressive with any of them, or with us.
As I’m sure you know, when a dog is loose on its own property, they can be very protective of their home, and people. I believe that this is the case with Brindi, that she was only doing what she is supposed to do, protect her property. Keeping her in a secure fenced area in the future, surely has to be a better solution than euthanasia.
Should you wish to discuss this further with me, please contact me any time at the number below.
