Dog of the Week Beau in Fight For His Life
Beau, a Golden Retriever and German Shepherd mix, is gaining national attention.


Over 600,000 dog lovers have signed an online petition with the hope of saving the life of our current Dog of the Week, Beau. He's a 2½-year-old Golden Retriever and German Shepherd mix who is currently being held at a kill shelter in Dyershurg, Tennessee.

Beau is being ordered to be put down after city officials claims he killed a duck and nearly attacked a little boy in Dyersburg in September. Beau’s current euthanasia date is tomorrow, Friday, January 30th.

Please visit Beau's website and Facebook page for additional details. Together, let's help bring Beau home.

Thank you Modern Dog Magazine, for sharing Beau's story. Tonight we got good news after the court hearing. Beau is free and with his dad, outside of Dyersburg. No legal update yet, but that will be coming soon. We emailed your photo of Beau as Dog of the Week to every elected official in TN. It had to strike them that they were trying to kill Beau the very same week he won your contest. I think it was divine providence that these events happened at the same time. It no doubt helped Beau. Thanks for supporting Beau.

Thank you so much for bringing Beau and his plight to the attention of more people. And thank you for supporting Beau. You are a terrific magazine. Your involvement and support helped free him. Now that he is free we will continue our fight to have the illegal "vicious dog" ordinance in Dyersburg struck down, along with all the other similar ordinances throughout the State. They are so vague they could be used to execute any dog. Furthermore there is State statute that provides that no city with a population of fewer than 100,000 people may adopt its own vicious dog ordinances. So, Beau's fight will go on.
