Florida governor RETURNED the rescue dog he adopted for his 2010 election campaign… AFTER he’d won
- Rick Scott adopted rescue dog Reagan during the 2010 campaign for Florida governor
- Reporters for Tampa Bay Times discovered dog had not been seen since Scott was inaugurated
- Scott eventually said that dog wasn’t a good match for his home and gave him back to previous owner
Rick Scott, the governor of Florida, rescued a Labrador retriever during the 2010 GOP campaign, but gave him back after he was inaugurated, it was revealed Monday.
The Republican governor only had the dog, Reagan, for the duration of his gubernatorial campaign, and gave the retriever back after he was sworn into office.
Scott had adopted the retriever shortly after his GOP nomination two years ago. The candidate posted photos of the dog to his Facebook campaign website, asking constituents to help name the newest member of his family.
They decided on Reagan, after the 40th president of the U.S.
Scott was routinely congratulated for adopting a rescue and not buying a purebred, such as President Obama’s dog, Bo, a Portuguese water dog.
However, reporters from the Tampa Bay Times noticed that Reagan had not been seen since Scott’s 2011 inauguration.
After some digging, the reporters realized there were no photos of Reagan since before the election. Images of the dog had been removed from Scott’s gubernatorial campaign website as well.
Last Wednesday, they reached out to Gov. Schott’s campaign communications director Brian Burgess, who said: ‘Take it in the bank I’m getting you every bit of info I can lay my hands on,’ adding that there would be ‘the potential for a PR nightmare’ if no information was received on the canine.
Not satisfied with the response, the reporters dug further and contacted Melissa Sellers, Scott’s current communications director.
Ms Sellers responded that she was ‘far too busy to find an answer to the question,’ according to the Times.
A spokeswoman for Mrs Scott would only confirm that the family has one dog, Talle, a seven-year-old rescue lab.
On Monday, reporters confronted Scott about the case of the vanishing dog. The governor said that Reagan ‘scared the living daylights’ out of everyone living at his Tallahassee mansion and that it wasn’t working out.
The dog, he said, would not stop barking if he saw a person carrying something.
Scott said that because of Reagan’s temperament, he had no choice but to return him to his previous owner.
As Gawker notes, each rescue dog comes with its own set of personality quirks, and may not be adjusted for living with certain types of families.The website ponders if Scott or anyone on his campaign spent time with Reagan before adopting him to find out if he was a good fit for the politician.A survey released in December by Quinnipiac University revealed that the GOP leader was unpopular and many Republican voters wished for another candidate come the 2014 primary, according to NBC Miami.
Speaking last week at the GOP’s annual meeting, Scott said that his time in office has proven that he deserves a second term.
‘Anybody who believes that they want to improve themselves should be a Republican,’ he told supporters.
adoptpets: Rick Scott truly lives up to the reputation that politicians are nothing but fake selfish fucktards. It looks like such a sweet dog. What does he mean when he says that he was scarring everyone by barking if someone was caring something? If he was aggressive then that would be one thing especially with a family involved, but it seems more like it was just annoying and he didn’t want to take the time to train him with behavioral training. It sounds more like the dog’s only use was for good PR, and once the race was over, the dog no longer served a purpose.
What a douche canoe.
Grief-stricken homeless man seeks public’s help after his dog stolen
Carl McDonald may be homeless, but his dog Scooby is his family and his life-saver in more ways than one. But now someone has stolen his 4-year-old Australian Kelpie away from him. Just before Christmas, the dog he calls “his daughter” was stolen while he slept.
Carl was sleeping on the streets of Oxford, England, on the porch of St. Gile’s Church in the city centre and when he woke to find her gone. The Australian Kelpie was last seen lying next to him. Carl said he was sure Scooby was stolen because the lead which hadn’t been attached to her collar was also gone, as well as some dog treats and £38 which had been in his hat. Now that she’s gone he said he doesn’t know what to do.
He told the Oxford Mail, “Dogs are everything when you are homeless. They keep you going and listen to you when you have no one to talk to.” He added, “I can’t sleep without her, it’s messing me up to be honest. It feels like someone has stolen my kid. I don’t know what I might do to myself really, I can’t live without her. She was like my daughter.”
A homeless man’s beloved dog was stolenCarl has had Scooby since she was just 4-weeks-old when a friend gave her to him. He bottle-fed her as a puppy. Carl, 43 said he owes his life to Scooby after she saved him from a fire in an apartment last year. He recounts how last year she saved his life when an apartment he was staying at caught on fire. “Someone had left a candle on and the flat caught fire. She woke me up and dragged me to the door. I didn’t know where it was because of all the smoke.”
He has a friend, Mandy Aitbaha, who is helping him search for Scooby by putting up posters.
Mandy always stops to chat to Carl and say hello to Scooby while she shops. She’s noticed the effect Scooby’s theft has had on Carl. “I’m really worried about him, he’s depressed and without that dog he is suicidal. I always see them together, he loves that dog.”
She said, “When I saw him a few days ago after Scooby went missing his head was down and he was crying. I couldn’t see Scooby so I knew something was wrong. He has been dealt a rough hand of cards as it is. His words to me were that he is staring death in the face so we really have to find her.”
Volunteers for Dog Lost, a national website which tries to track down missing dogs, has been helping with the search for Scooby.
Thames Valley Police spokesman Rhianne Pope confirmed Scooby was reported missing on December 19 and had not yet been found. She said Scooby’s disappearance was being treated as a theft.
The Australian Kelpie which is primarily brown with a white blaze across her chest and was taken from Carl on December 19, 2012 from the St. Gile’s Church at 10 Woodstock Rd. If you have any information on Scooby’s disappearance contact Dog Lost or Thames Valley Police.
CLEVELAND (WRCB) — A group of animal advocates say they had homes for dogs that were put down.
They claim animal control workers ignored an agreement to help save them.
That agreement was never written down.
City workers followed city code, but some say that’s not enough.
