how sad and sickening:

BY NHIA LEE
FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER


It was supposed to be a house party in Warren, or so a young woman thought.
She went to the house of boyfriend and girlfriend Dustin Kleiner and Christie Clore, both 18.

What she found shocked her.

As she later told police:

There was no music, only the sounds from about a dozen people. And there was no dancing.

Instead, there were dogs, fighting for their lives.

There were four pit bulls -- one had been severely injured -- and people were betting on which dog would come out on top.

Disgusted by what she saw, on May 27 the young woman, whom Warren police won't identify, reported the fighting, a move that launched a six-week investigation.

On Wednesday about 11:30 p.m., police went to the house of Kleiner and Clore and found five pit bulls, including two puppies. One of the adults had old and fresh wounds, police said.

The officers found "dogs sitting and standing in their own feces," said Warren Police Sgt. Louis Galasso.

Inside the garage, police found dog-fighting equipment.

"We found chains on short poles and a treadmill in the garage," Galasso said. "We also found large weights attached to the dog collars."

He said the equipment was used to build the dogs' stamina.

The walls were lined with mattresses to muffle the barks and growls, he said.

A 4-foot-by-4-foot wooden fighting ring also was found in the garage, said John Courie, Macomb County chief prosecutor.

Kleiner and Clore each were charged with three counts of animal cruelty: maintaining a place for animal fighting and possessing equipment to allow animals to fight, both felonies, and animal cruelty, a misdemeanor.

Clore also was charged with possession of marijuana.

Both were arraigned Thursday and are being held in lieu of $500,000 bond each. A preliminary examination is set for July 22.

The five dogs are at the Macomb County Animal Shelter, where they are being kept in separate kennels, said Sue Jeroue, chief animal director.

Hi Gbaby...
My family  had a Lab when I was young-- but we didn't have it for too long-- all I have to say is that they grow quickly...  and are quite strong... I don't remember much because it got too strong for us to handle (we should have opted for a slightly less rambunctious dog...)

This puppy looks more golden retreiver than lab....in fact, it doesn't look lab at all.  The shelter says it is a mix.  I'm not really concerned.  I've had friends with labs.  I don't ever remember them having any problem handling them.  They are rambunctious, though.

LOL.. The few labs I met have been "leaners" and are very strong... then again, I'm kind of afraid of big dogs, too.... 

My friend as this big black dog that looks like a giant bear large and wooly-- Roxie is so funny--she actually "smiles" at people.   Unfortunately, if you don't know that she "smiles", you might think she's baring her teeth in a threatening way....  The other funny thing is that if you tell her to sit, she will sit right on your foot.... LOL

They are Speedi and Baby and the newest kitty (aka DogCat) is Bosworth (named after my friend John's producer...it just sounds so formal...like a butler...).  We had a little problem tonight with Bosworth...I went out with friends and when I got home he 'wee wee'd' in the middle of my bed!!!! Thank goodness for thick washable comforters   Cry

Lin,

How many cats do you have now?

We have 2, and I am 'requesting strongly' a pure bred Himalayan kitten for Xmas! 

I may need the prozac, too!
