  1. I guess I am not sure where calm and dignified gets anyone in this horrible case of prolonged injustice, but if that’s is what the family requests then I plan to honor it.

    • Calm and dignified get you nowhere with these people,they don’t want to hear the truth,and it seems to me the Met police dog handler has an issue with dogs, which would need to be looked at more carefully.

  2. I guess I am not sure where calm and dignified gets anyone in this case of prolonged injustice, but if the family has requested I will honor that. I don’t know Lennox or his family, but this has hurt many animal advocates around the world. I am heartsick for all of them.

  3. It really hurts to hear this story. I can only imagine how the family must feel. Lets hope they listen and let Lennox live a happy life with his family.

  4. For months I HAVE been dignified, It did no good at all! NOW I am ANGRY! This is an absolute farce! NOW is the time to take positive action – The ‘dignified’ approach has not, and will not work! – A pox on the BCC and their ilk – let’s free Lennox if he is still alive and if at all possible. This whole thing is politically motivated, nothing to do with a poor, innocent dog!

  5. My heart goes out to you all on this sad day. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. I cant stop crying, i cant even begin to imagine the pain Lennox and his family are feeling……. im hoping for a miracle… he really deserves this…..i dont know what else to say, i cant help mend your pain…and i wish i could….its just the most horific decision thats ever been handed down for a companion animal…and im sorry, but i believe you should leave ireland, they dont deserve you…and i know alot of people will not travel to ireland anymore….they have done more damage here, than just destroying a companion animal, they’ve shot themselves in the arse….now peopls wont register their dogs, and if they do, they’ll lie about the breed…. if council knocked on my door, i’d say he/she has passed away…..naturally i have no death certificate of proof…..again, im so very sorry, i hope a miracle comes….and i hope your lennox gets to come home alive and happy…

  7. I am heartbroken over this..truly heartbroken for you and for Lennox..i will never forget this story…may god be with you and your family..and Lennox RIP sweet boy who never did a thing wrong.

  8. A Bloody Disgrace from a neo- Nazi Terrorist Country Northern Ireland.Regrettably very difficult to get any enjoyment out of this apart from Cursing these Bastards.

    • No family should ever have to go through having their dog absconded because of his looks. Having an animal removed from a private residence because that animal fits a certain profile is just plain WRONG! If government officials can do this to one family, no family is safe from this type of government mischief.

  9. Its a bloody disgrace the treatment that lennox has been dealt. You must + indeed every one must still fight to get him Home

  10. Its a bloody disgrace the treatment that lennox has been dealt. You must + indeed every one must still fight to get him Home. His family has complied with all paperwork that is necessary, and even the council issued a license for him recently. These bullying officials need to be brought to justice + Lennox returned home

    • I agree. He never should have been taken in the first place. These people are barbaric and cruel.

  11. this is all abut ego and “saving face” it took them 2 years to make this decision just goes to show how inept they really are..now they have to kill him just to make it all worthwhile a mature, secure, real,
    human would admit they were wrong and let this dog live a free life..but no..ego and ignorance, of insecure humans in power positions wins over humanity…

  12. Go to http://www.savelennox.co.uk and click “How You Can Help.” There you will find the email addresses and all the contact info for the mayor and all the other guilty parties in Belfast. These are sample letters there too. Let them know what you think!

  13. I am horrified and very disturbed that this could happen to anyone in Northern Ireland. I would never, ever think of going to that communist country now!.. The BCC has done a horrible, injustice to Lennox and his family. I can’t believe this is legal Lennox was never signed over to the BCC yet they have held him in captivity, under what authority? Legally they have stolen someone’s pet and should be held accountable for it. Each official needs to be interrogated seperately through the highest court in England. They have all committed fraud and have lied under oath I don’t think I have ever been so upset by a news report about a dog like I have now. What does this prove what has this action actually proved that they have power over a family and their pet. Keep their pet confined by himself away from living being’s and the family he loves so much. It is easily see they have mistreated this dog, therefore they should be charged with animal abuse, felony animal abuse of the worst kind, they have literally destroyed this living being while his heart only beats with love. How very sad the BCC is the lowest for of humans I have ever heard from. This is no threat this is opinion. You will feel the wrath of dog lovers every where in this world because this story will be told. Over and over and over again and your names will be repeated time and time again. Is this what you want to be remembered for your inhumane treatment of this dog and this family but most of all the loss of a therapy dog that belonged to a handicapped child. Takes real courage to do what you have done YOU COWARDS!!!! Oh and the video clip of the dog warden who was so afraid of Lennox that was a laugh when he climbed on her to give her a kiss. Yeah that is a real dangerous dog. Actions speak louder than words!

    • I agree with everything you said Mona. They had no right and no reason to take him in the first place. I wish our reigning Queen could do something and make the barbarians return him to his family alive. I too saw the clip of him kissing the warden. I also saw another one where her face seemed to be blurred. Perhaps she was smiling or laughing.

  15. Belfast city council are totally wrong. Are free Society ain’t so free.

    justice for Lennox they have stolen 2 years of such a short life and for What ?

    Long Live Lennox in all are hearts .

  16. We know we have cowards in high positions here in the states and now we know there are cowards in political positions in Belfast! So now that they proved they can hurt an innocent animal and his family what is their next step……maybe to pass law that a family can only have 3 kids and if all girls and no boys, what kill the girls? You can have a cat but if it gets outside for 3 minutes then what they can kill your cat? You work to much overtime so they what put you in jail until you can prove you will only work 5 hrs of overtime? Your car is 10yrs old and you refuse to buy new so they, what impound your car until you can only buy a new one? These may sound ridiculous, well what they did to Lennox is just as ridiculous and insane!!!!! Keep fighting to save Lennox until there is not one single breath left in any of us!

  17. i hadd been planning a trip to ireland …. land of my ancestors…. now there is no way i will go there with judges who cant even go visit a dog and see its personality. im very ashamed to say im irish…… this is the only thing in my life that has ever made me say that. shame on you judge shame on the people who passed this law. shame shame shame my tears will happen mybe forthe rest of my life each time i think on the dogs put to sleep for no good reason. think well all who had a part in bringall this unhappiness on the dogs of this breed with medals for saving humans. dogs like children behave how they are raised instead of punishing a breed for what some humans have done to their dogs why not punish those humans for what they have made their dogs that so many must suffer in this breed through no falt ofd their own. im so glad my ancestors left ireland for it is a truely unjust country to kill animals for no good reason other than breed!

    • I agree. I also have some Irish ancestory. I too am ashamed at this moment to have Irish in me. I also agree it is not dogs that are bad, it is the way they are raised. Lennox is not even a dangerous dog.

  18. God be with you all……… Our HEARTS have broken for all of you. Spots of Love & Lotsa Licks Tsar, Bella, Sushi, Mucca, & Pearl

  19. Lennox could be the double of my two dogs Louis and Mugsey. I too am disabled and would be far less functional if it weren’t for the help of Mugs(1996-2006) and currently Louie. However if BSL were enacted in San Francisco, I would do anything in my power to spare the life of my companion. And if after a long and costly battle, all efforts to reunite us failed, I would seek to rehome my dog, who has served me so selflessly and well, rather than allow his death. I’m not sure what efforts have been taken in this regard, so I withhold judgement. But my heart would rule the day and if it were me, and I would do the selfless thing and give him up, rather than see him perish. Never again to be in the at ms of those who love and value him. His last moments being dictated by the actions of those who fail to comprehend his worth a an intelligent and feeling being. My prayers are for a right and just end to this sorry affair. I hope the powers that be in Belfast will find a just solution so that the end to this sorry affair will be a happy one and not one that will for many years to come equate the name Belfast with animal cruelty and neglect.

    • I agree. The people are so cruel and I believe abusive as well. I think the government should step in and make them return the dog to his family for the love and attention he deserves. They should also be investigated for cruelty. This dog is totally innocent. You can’t judge a book by its cover. He never did anything wrong.

  20. This is just horrible!!! this is true abuse of an animal living this way and I cant believe PETA is not on this if someone doesnt step in like an organization other pitts will be seized there,someone please help this Dog over there,why cant he be taken out and brought to the states instead of being put down I just dont understand all this!!

    • Just FYI, PETA would like to see all of these animals put down. They don’t agree with companion animals and certainly show no support for bully type breeds. They wanted to kill all of the Vick dogs with no evalutation.

      Lennox’s family, I will keep you in my thoughts.

    • I agree. People have offered to take him. I think that although many experts said he is not a danger to anyone, the BCC and judges decided that no matter what evidence there was against them, that they weren’t going to listen. This dog needs to be with his family and the little disabled girl he was taken from.

  21. Calm and dignified gets you nowhere with these people,they don’t want to hear the truth,and it seems to me the Met police dog handler has an issue with dogs, which would need to be looked at more carefully.Why have none of are MLA,s got involved in this, OH maybe because there are no elections coming up. DO THE RIGHT BELFAST CITY COUNCIL AND ADMIT YOU ARE IN THE WRONG and release the dog to its family.!!

    • I agree. They should just admit that they were wrong about Lennox and let the family have him back and give him the loves he deserves. He is not a pit bull type. He was DNA tested. At this moment, I am still ashamed to be of Irish decent. The BCC and judges don’t want to listen to anyone. They obviously have no love for animals or compassion of any kind. This just shows that they will go to anyone’s house and take a dog because of its looks.

  22. PETA wouldn’t help Bruce either. PETA would in fact agree to the killing of Lennox to ‘protect’ him from the possibility of abuse. I suggest that you google petawatch.com or petakillsanimals.com and update your opinion of this anti-pet organisation who last year killed 97% of the animals entrusted into their care for rehoming…no doubt with a donation from a heartbroken pet owner.

  23. pathetic Irish..i only wish there was something more i could do. but im all out of ideas on this part. they only wana kill poor lennox for their own failures. what a bunch of cowards they are standing there with their heads held high for such a despicable act. i can only hope they feel the same pain.

  24. makes me sick to be human who the hell do they think they are playing god what gives people a right to make these kind of barbaric decisions all the people involved want shooting a poor innocent dog whos done nothing wrong at all i wish i could play god for a day ide soon turn things around.

  25. When I read the family’s statement the battle was over, at first I thought, please no, keep fighting. But they are right. They will never win this battle – the NI courts have seen to that – and to prolong it will only keep Lennox in the inhumane conditions he has suffered for far too long now under the so-called ‘care’ of Belfast City Council.

    I am devastated for them. Their love for this dog has shone through every step of the way of their long campaign. They wanted him back, but more than that, they want Lennox to have as good a life as he enjoyed with them for so many years – even if it’s not with them. That is true sacrifice.

    I pray the dog is spared and allowed to go to Cesar Millan who has offered him a home in America. He couldn’t be in better hands after the trauma he has likely suffered these last years. At least the family will know he is safe and free and will have the life they wanted for him until God takes him – not the Belfast City Council. They may even get the opportunity to see him again – in America – and I, for one, would contribute to any fund set up to help them do just that. If ever there was a family on this earth that deserved to see their dog again, it’s them.

    Whatever happens, they can be so proud of themselves for all they have done for their beloved dog. They are truly honourable human beings. I wish we could say the same for the people who rule over us in this country.

  26. The Belfast City Council should be arrested for the inhumane treatment of animals. Everyone on the council should be voted out. What is happening is absolutely BARBARIC!

  27. Give me the syringe and I will volunteer to “humanely” euthanize every BCC member myself. They all need to be replaced, on the council as well as the planet.

  28. These people are a disgrace to the Irish race. Killing the innocent. They ought to ask God to change their sorry ass… They are the ones who need to be euthanized..

  29. This is NOT a “humane” place and the pain that Lennox has suffered for TWO YEARS non-stop is barbaric torture. The BCC would deliberately go in and poke at him over and over to try and make him growl. They tormented him physically and mentally unmercilessly! Lennox is a GOOD dog – in fact far better behaved than the BCC cretins – and never gave them that satisfaction.

    The family needs to bring the whole BCC up on criminal charges, also on charges of destruction of private property (though I do NOT consider animals as property but as family members), inhumane treatment of an animal, search and seizure without a warrant since the officers had the wrong address and the wrong home (!), wrongful imprisonment, deprivation of a service dog to a disabled person (Lennox was a therapy dog for their disabled daughter), mental and emotional pain and anguish for what they have all suffered for two years and loss of peace of mind including damages, and everything else that could possibly apply including a biased and wrongful trial.

    The appalling treatment of Lennox was inexcusable. MURDERERS in solitary confinement get better treatment! Lennox never harmed anyone; never even nipped let alone maimed or killed – UNLIKE THE BCC THEMSELVES! The outrageous actions on their part need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and they each need to be sued PERSONALLY. Each one also needs to be publicly identified including their picture, along with the moronic judge who accepted non-expert evidence from a person who admitted he wasn’t an expert. The horrific conditions that caused open sores and pain to Lennox, along with their constant and unrelenting mental and emotional torment, is not acceptable!

    The absolute barbarism and the mentality shown by this bunch of communists is beyond reason. The complete lack of justice and reasoning, the appalling abuse, neglect, and bias against not only Lennox but also his family, the obviously biased court and its ruling based on a complete lack of expert evidence to the contrary, and the fact that Lennox died while in their care yet no one has seen evidence of his body, is indication of a DELIBERATE COVERUP and deliberate conspiracy against any and all justice.

  30. I cry so much for Lennox. Please keep us updated when KARMA arrives at the doorstep of the BCC murderers.
