Dog Owner Says Someone Is Poisoning Her Pups

Posted: Updated:
Mantua, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

Amanda Von Ahnen has already had one puppy poisoned and now someone has been throwing bones and meat scraps into her yard possibly trying to hurt her new puppy.

Bella was a fun loving Rottweiler who got along with everyone and hadn't yet celebrated her first birthday. There were no complaints of aggression and that's what makes her being poisoned so unexplainable.

Amanda said that after having a disagreement with a neighbor earlier this year who thought her fence was too low to keep Bella in the yard, the next day Bella was poisoned.

“I had a neighbor that came from behind our row of town homes; she was afraid that Bella would get out and attack her little dogs. I tried to assure her that that wouldn't happen, apparently I wasn't convincing enough. She stormed off and the next morning there was a bowl of anti-freeze in my backyard,” Von Ahnen recalled.

Bella had to be put to sleep after anti-freeze placed in her water bowl led to kidney failure. Police suspected the neighbor, but there's no proof. Now, Amanda purchased a new puppy, a higher fence and a surveillance camera. The camera has recorded video of someone throwing bones and meat scraps over the fence and she's not sure if they're trying to hurt the new puppy.

“I hope they're not laced. I hope someone is just taunting me, but after what happened to Bella I don't take it lightly,” she said.

The bones and meat scraps have been sent away to be tested for poison, but they still have no proof of who's doing it.

Von Ahnen is asking anyone who knows anything to come forward to help her protect her puppy and find out who's committing these heartless crimes.
