Healthy Dog Euthanized to Fulfill Late Owner’s Wish of Burial with Her Pet
RICHMOND, Va. -- Over the protests of shelter workers, a healthy dog was euthanized so she could be buried with her dead owner in accordance with the Virginia woman's will, according to WWBT. The Shih Tzu named Emma was temporarily placed at the Chesterfield Animal Shelter, where staff members tried for two weeks to talk the executor of the will out of putting the dog down.
