Everyone knows that a dog is a man’s best friend, but at times it is truly remarkable to see how deep that bond can actually be. This is the story of a man who killed himself because his dog was taken away from him and euthanized. The dog was put down because he didn’t adhere to the Breed Specification Legalization for Pit Bulls. The dog, named Zanto had never committed a dangerous act of any sort.
Dan, Zanto’s owner was given 8 days to prove whether or not his dog was a banned breed. He couldn’t prove this in time, so Zanto was taken from him and killed instantly. Some say that he could have been put into an adoption center for the time being, so Dan would have had ample time to approve his beloved pet, but this opportunity was not given to him.
Dan was so heartbroken when he found out about his loyal companion that he took his own life by overdosing on pain pills. There are many banned breeds in Denmark but this is a story that has a truly tragic ending that in all honesty, could have been avoided.
