This is an update on Ed Faron’s dogs that I received from a Dogster member. I’m posting this to help save his dogs from destruction, not to renew the argument on whether they should have been removed or his guilt or innocence. I think that subject has been sufficiently discussed.
Ed Faron’s dogs were consumed with worms. The puppies have an overwhelming case of cocidia, which they get from their mothers by being exposed to their feces. Some of the females have been overbred until they are skinny and weak.
Many of the dogs had abscessed and painful teeth that had to be pulled to keep from poisoning their system. Some of them had almost no teeth. Some of the males have many, many scars that appear to be from dog fighting. The Ed Faron pit bull dogs get along very well with humans..not human aggressive at all. But there is a problem with a few of the scarred males.. when they get loose they go straight for another scarred male for aggressive confrontation.
There are now more than 127 dogs, which was the original number seized from Ed Faron, puppies have been born while in the undisclosed location where they are being held.
Wilkes County is in charge of determining the outcome of these wonderful , funny, playful and precious dogs. Best Friends has offered to assist Wilkes County in helping to save these dogs rather than kill them…which Wilkes County plans to do. Some of us are fighting to save as many of the dogs as possible. The dogs are not only victimized by the dogfighter, but also by the groups that rescue them only to kill them.
Most of the great cruelty shown by men comes from thoughtlessness or inherited habit.
“The time must come when inhumanity protected by custom and thoughtlessness will succumb before humanity championed by thought. Let us work that this time may come. ” ~Albert Schweitzer
The dogs are the ones that are suffering and paying for greed and ego of man. The dogs are the victims.
Please contact the following and encourage them respectfully to allow Best Friends to save and place these dogs so that they may live out their natural lives without being victimized. Dogs are living, breathing beings that deserve no less reverence for their lives than man or any other living creature that we “share” our world with.

I am not sure where the information concerning the condition of the dogs came from. I do know these dogs need help if they are to be saved. So please, only leave comments regarding concern over the safety of the dogs. Nothing else, this is not the post for that. Thank you for your cooperation.
