Officials Hone in on Suspect in California Dog Starving Case: Courage on the Mend

California authorities have identified a suspect in the case of Courage the wonder dog, a German Shepherd tied to a stake and starved for five weeks. Officials with Southeast Area Animal Control Authority have not yet released the name of the 26 year old Bellflower resident suspected of leaving the dog to die, but have indicated that they will pursue felony charges. 

Another video has been released - it is not related to the above but this dog is so remarkable that his story bears repeating.

  8. I hope with all my heart that justice will be served. Although whatever punishment they dream up could truly never be enough.

    I loved the video. He's quite a talker, isn't he? :-)

  10. This makes my day to see how much Courage is improving. I think he's saying THANK YOU! And probably a few LOVE YOU's in there, too. =) Yes, he is most certainly a miracle dog.

  12. I'm so glad to hear that there may be justice for Courage, but the most important thing is that he's a survivor who's going to start life again!

    Courage is an amazing dog! Thank God and thank the team that helped him get better. I pray that he is not going to go to a shelter after all this. They should make the person that did this pay for all his care, and I am hoping felony charges mean a prison sentence! How could anyone be so cruel to such a beautiful dog, to any dog. Way to go Courage! I hope the rest of your life will be wonderful for you with plenty of love and lots of treats.

  16. We loved hearing him talk! He is beautiful and I bet he will be an awesome friend to anyone lucky enough to keep him when he is well. It would be cool if the vet kept him.

  20. Poor Courage. Glad he's on the mend, though.

    I hope they catch the sorry excuse for a human being who committed such a horrible crime real soon.

  22. I sure hope that whoever did this to that beautiful dog gets the Justice that they deserve. I'm with the others about one thing to do...chain him or them to a tree on a very short tight chain and let them eat rocks and dirt for a few months before going to prison. Debbie and Holly

  23. The Monster deserves the same fate as the German Shepherd and then go to prison for a very very long time.

    It turns out she is a Vet Tech in Irvine and the Animal Hospital is standing behind her and paying her even though they suspended her. (we are dogs and have not figured out how to link but I think the story is on the OC Register website)

    Society really needs to protect all the animals from the sub-humans out there. We keep wanting to call these people animals but obviosly that is an insult to all the real animals.

    PS: She was just arrested

  24. So sorry I have been away so long. Human Granny has started a new account on facebook.com and has been posting all the dogs and she gets so sad that she just goes to bed and cries. ;*(
    Love the story and thanks for sharing it! <3
