A very odd twist in the story of Remmy, who was mutilated by his abusive owners but was somehow ordered by Altoona police to remain in the home. Remmy’s canine brother, Buddy, was in the news just three days ago — for saving his family’s life.
Ashley Boyles, owner of Remmy and his two canine siblings, reported to the news that a fire had broken out in their Blair County home Monday night. At around 10:30 p.m., Buddy began barking and shoving the couch that Boyles was asleep on. She woke up to discover smoke and saw flames coming from the kitchen, so she grabbed the children and her dogs and went outside.
How can a family call their dog a hero and sing his praises while at the same time, they’ve horribly abused their other dog, Remmy? Hopefully authorities can investigate these owners further and will determine they are unfit guardians.
Apparently, an unusual response is being received by people emailing the Altoona news station regarding Remmy:
Thank you for your e-mail. We have investigated this information and spoken with Animal Control in Blair County and it appears there is some misinformation that is being spread about this dog. The owner of the dog is the victim of a house fire, and the wounds to the dog appear to be a result of the fire. According to Animal Control investigators, there is no incident of abuse in this case.
Why was there tape around the dog’s genitals? Why would a house fire injure just the dog’s penis and nothing else? It now sounds like the family is trying to get out of animal abuse charges by blaming the dog’s condition on the fire. Are you buying this story?
Please keep calling so Remmy gets justice!
