“Dogs Deserve Better” have you heard of them? well have you heard this?

http://vimeo.com/25230159 PLease watch the following video, no graphic images, just another organization that gets a little too big, for their britches, this has to end!

DDB’s Kelly Page.., you should be ashamed! and stating you did it to “teach your recent harrasser a lesson?” I guess when you have a dogs best interests at heart, you love said dog, well that labels you someone who chains dogs and a harrasser? Look in the mirror Kelly! Look in the mirror!

Well who really pays for all that? certainly most of all Joel! You make me sick!

Why don’t you give Ingrid Newkirk a call, it sounds like you two would get along famously! I have removed your organization from my links page.

DDB, you are a sham, a fraud, and just another attention and media seeking whore organization!

I’m sorry Joel, sorry you ended up in the wrong hands AGAIN! My thoughts are with you my dear!


About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!

    Thank you for the info. on what “Dogs Deserve Better” did to Joel. I am going to sign petition to bring Joel home. And I will most definitely “unfollow” “Dogs Deserve Better” on my Twitter Account! Could their name be any more of a fraud? Dogs most certainly deserve better! (Speaking of dog rescues – is there any word on how Anakin, the bait dog victim, is doing? I contributed to site you posted, but I don’t know if they were sucessful in getting him the treatment he needs. Such a sweet boy. He is a dog that truly deserves better than how he’s been treated in life so far. You can either email me or leave message on my Twitter Acct. – kmspoochshelter) Thank you again for all the good info. you post. I really appreciate your efforts! 🙂

      No new news on Anikan yet but there is a link to the vet I am hoping to email them this week for updates, and I will post those. Thank you for caring and helping out this boy! The story was passed to me and it just broke my heart, I sure hope he finds a great home and makes it throught this terrible ordeal. Again thank you!

    I ALWAYS read both sides. I love what DDB does and I felt for the Dr. However I have read to many “lies” by the Dr. I removed myself from her group and I emailed the petition site and had my name removed from the petition to bring Joel home. Let me explain, DDB may be a bigger organization and have the “means” to bring down the smaller person, I think it is wrong. But I don’t believe that is the case here. Because it is in litigation, DDB cannot talk about it. That makes sense. Usually that is how court cases go. But really, that is not what I am angry about or made me change my mind. The Dr and her “friends” felt the need to spam the wall of DDB. I believe in freedom of speech, I believe in the truth, but I don’t believe in small minded people trying to “ruin” another. Be it DDB or the Dr. At the end of the day, the “supporters” are taking the resources and time away from all the other dogs that need support and help. IS that what rescues are really about? No. So why not take that time & energy and help other animals? For now, Joel is not going anywhere and I believe that the truth will come out and Joel will be placed where he is best suited. A video was shown recently of Joel playing with his new family. The Joel supporters we’re claiming aggression and any other comment they could to dis-credit the video? Really? He was playing, I am the proud parent of a bully and rottie, they play like that. It’s not aggression it’s play. Finally at the end of the day, Joel is home. Has been adopted into a good family, The dr. is prepared to take Joel away from that? What about what is in Joel’s best interest? Finally, I don’t condone what DDB did, I think it was wrong to take the dog from the dr, without a full investigation, and for that they should apologize and make it right with the dr, but…. the dr also needs to stop with her attack on DDB, let the courts decide and carry on rescuing and carrying for the animals that need her.

    Joel belongs with the Dr. She is the one who brought him back to health with medical care and lots of love. It is obvious from the pics that they have bonded. how could they take him away from the 1st person ever to show him love How would you like this to happen to you??? DDB is a farce and I can no longer support them. The animal is the most important thing and she was there for him. I hope DDB either changes or disbands. Dogs Deserve Better…what a joke you people are

    • apitome

      My whole point is in favor of the Doctor, I think all parties need to speak truthfully and honestly, but the fact remains Joel is the issue not one side or the other. This is not the first time I have seen people speak out against DDB, and I am quite sure it won’t be the last! Joel needs to be back with the Doctor who did so much for him, out of the kindness of her heart and I do not believe for one minute she would do anything to hurt him.

    Joel is not home. Joel’s home is with Dr. Fiala and her family. DDB repossessed Joel in an act of retaliation. Anyone with half a brain can read the writing on the wall. Also, Joel is not with a family. He is with a single male who believes in hog tying pitbulls to break them of their spirit.

    I remember the issue of Joel at the beginning, but admit due to a family member’s illness didn’t know how it had escalated until yesterday. Therefore, I don’t know much about the Doctor, nor the accusations, nor the court case. What I do know is Tamira Ci Thayne and two of her most consistent traits I’ve personally witnessed, time and again, are these:
    1) She is not a liar. She will tell the honest to God truth to a fault. This can be seen in public court cases of which many of you are already aware. She would jeopardize her freedom rather than back away from the truth.
    2) She will go to any lengths to do what she feels is truly best for a dog. If it is going to jail for taking a dog to the vet without permission, not giving the whereabouts of a dog if it means returning that dog to abuse, though she is promised all charges will be dropped if she just gives the dog back. She would rather go to jail, or fight it out in court than surrender that dog to more abuse.
    Two things you can count on when it comes to Tami; being truthful and that any dog coming or going to or from DDB, that dog’s welfare is her top priority.

      The only thing I can say is that there are always two sides to every story, that much is true, I have seen time and time again well meaning groups and or organizations, get lost somewhere along the way, they become hyper-defensive about the organization and lose sight of what is really important. From everything I have read and researched it apears that Joel is no longer the main priority to DDB, they have gone out of their way to discredit the Doctor, saying things that frankly I would only expect from PETA, in relation to her. I do not believe for one red hot second that she was going to chain Joel, I simply don’t, but certainly your opinion is valid, and I appreciate all points of view. My goal is in a supportive role for Joel, I want to see him back in the loving hands of the woman who invested so much into his rehabilitation and care. The rest is simply irrelevent, its grand standing and politics on the part of DDB. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Joel’s case.
