|Natasha, they're probably aren't too many of them, thankfully---the dog was white. The quality was very grainy and the horse didn't stand still very long--he could very well have been a fine-boned type mule. Couldn't tell by the ears--they were pinned back most of the time, but he did seem to have a fairly straight top line compared to a lot of horses, so he could have been a mule. I'll PM the link to you.
Some people are getting way emotional over there and the name-calling, personal attacks, conspiracy theories, whoa!
Twister was right to advise not even going there . . .. I understand Dogster likes getting the hits and attention and all, but it sure opens up a wide world of people who have some very reactionary views and woeful lack of insight about dog training too. ("like how's anyone expected to train their dog to be off leash around horses, when they don't have a horse available? that's ridiculous"--where do you even begin?) I don't know sometimes I think Dogster brings the site down and doesn't do dogs any favors when it puts up these poorly chosen, ill-written articles . . . .
But the more I hear about the owner's subsequent behavior . . .. just reinforces a negative image. It seems he didn't even show up to the temperament test at UC Davis when he was advised by both his lawyer and Akita Angels rescue that it would be more comfortable and helpful for Charlie for him to be there. . . ... . that just doesn't sound like a do anything for my dog guy --I can't imagine any of us regulars not being there for something so important in saving our dogs . .. He claims on his page he was tricked into doing this test by Akita Angels and insinuates there was a conspiracy to make it not go well . . .
