|I believe people harm animals because they lose patience, or they don't know the commitment it takes to raise an animal. Some feel that a heavy hand will stop unwanted behaviour. Some do not have the time to properly train an animal.
As for abuse on a specific breed like an Aussie I would have to guess it is because some people do not do their research when purchasing the breed and do not know how much energy the dog may have. If not properly exercised an Aussie may become destructive to ones home, this may lead to frustration from the owner therefore leading to abuse.
It's very sad to see how many animals are abused in this world. Some people do not understand that their abuse may actually cause bigger issues.
