    They only remove the head if you are unable to provide proof of current rabies vaccination. If you cannot prove the dog has been vaccinated against rabies they take the head so that they can test the brain tissue for rabies.

    If there is no proof rabies vaccine the shelter will do the same thing when his quarantine is up, so its not like you saved his body from dismemberment. Its legally required standard procedure in dangerous dogs with no proof of rabies vaccination.

    The dog wasn't wired right, he showed agg. even before he attacked your sister, could of been one of the kids. You made the right decision to have him euth. I don't understand why AC wouldn't have to submit the head seeing it's the state law, if the vet has to.

    i think cause the ac quarintines them for ten days and see if they show signs of rabies where at the vets they pts right away and they send the head off for testing you know to be honest i dont even know if the ac does it i didnt ask them i didnt want to know im just going to believe they dont i wanted to get his remains creamated but after they told me about the head i couldnt take him there im just f**ked up all the way around any way would have been awful andi took the coward heartless way out and i dying inside i did him WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Eat something, get some sleep, take some deep breaths, and allow yourself to grieve.
    What's done is done regardless at this point. If the dog attacked out of the blue for no reason then having him be PTS was probably the most humane thing to do. As for how you went about it, I'm not going to bother telling you if I think it was right or wrong, it's something you can not change at this point and will have to come to terms with on your own.

    OP hasn't been here since Feb I highly doubt it's worth posting in this thread
