I've known Sylas and their owners for years, and I'm deeply saddened by Mountain View's decision to take this fine animal from their owners and his home.

Stadler has the option of putting the dog to sleep OR letting owners keep him. It's understandable they don't want to turn him in the for decision, but if the owners have been too irresponsible to keep him onleash, this is their final wake-up call. They probably won't be more responsible though - people like that believe they are entitled to a different set of rules, even when their decisions endanger others - and now their dog is endangered. I have dog aggressive dogs, and in public, they're on leash, which is why they're not dangerous.

I feel sorry for the Sylas not for his owners because every dog needs training and apparently his owners never took the time to socialize him properly and now he is facing a fatal end to his life.

Shame on his owners!!

Let the dog live and put the owner to sleep instead.

Sylas is a good, sweet dog. Sylas is no aggressive dog. I sometime mistake little dogs for rodents as well.
