And people wonder why animals bite their owners!!! If this is how he is picking up his puppy, IN FRONT OF PEOPLE. Imagine what he does behind closed doors when the puppy acts like a puppy, chewing, peeing, etc. It makes me sick.
I thought thats how you pick a dog up also. I guess the proper way is holding them like a baby??That doesnt hurt them. Its the same as pinching your elbow as hard as you can and not feeling a thing. All I see is a guy kissing his dog. Ppl will make something out of nothing smh
well you see that is actually how mother dogs pick up there puppies so at a young age there actually is nothing wrong with picking up a dog that way it doesn’t hurt them…hence why you also give them shots there
Actually their mothers carry them from their back neck scruff and that’s only with fur, not a harness. This guy needs to have this done to him and see how much he likes it. And let me guess, because he’s a “celebrity” (if you can call a professional ball player that; any idiot can chase a ball around), if something happens to that poor dog, he won’t get punished for it at all even if he’s guilty. Sick…
Mother dogs aren’t still carrying their puppies around once they get to be that size. Anyone who has raised a litter of pups knows this. Picking up a puppy that large by the neck HURTS THEM!! I don’t give a fuck who he is, if I saw him in person I would tell him he’s a piece of shit to his face. Sadly, I’m not surprised by this though. Just more typical “thug” bullshit.
It’s DMX. I used to work with him. He’s a piece of shit asshole. He fights dogs, kills them, buries them in the yard, raped a 9yr old girl years back, Druggie, theif, cheater child abuser and con artist. He lives in Brentwood.
That is not the correct way to pick up a puppy or a dog of that size. It is OK to pick up VERY small pups and kittens that way (which the mother does as well), but when they are bigger, it can injure them. This dog is too big to be picked up by the sruff, as he probably weighs about 10+ Lbs.
Can someone pls site an actual veterinarian saying that it is painful and full of discomfort. I’m not arguing but a bunch of random ppl on the internet are not the most intelligent ppl. I’d say the most of you are ignorant racists who scream foul on anything. Probably baby your children to the point where they can’t defend themselves. Useless wastes of skin. Until you got facts to support your arguement stfu.. As fro facts for my arguement I believe the comments speak for themselves.
A dog of that weight is the same as someone picking up a child by it’s wrist. There is too much weight not being supported when picking an animal up that way. It is excess skin, but that doesn’t make it a good way to support an animals full weight. If held that way too many times or for too long it can cause tearing of the skin, and can damage blood vessels, leading to bruising.
Generally when people talk of ‘scruffing’ an animal, they aren’t lifting it, they are merely grabbing the excess skin, as a way to show dominance. You should not lift a dog of this size by one specific area. You need to support it’s full weight as to not cause injuries.
So in short, yes it can cause your animals pain, and is definitely NOT the way to lift your animal. Just as you wouldn’t enjoy being lifted by your hair, or any fat/excess skin of yours, please don’t do it to your animals

I’m going with the vet tech, and common sense…oh, hold on, it’s not all that common, it seems…the dog is too big to still be picked up that way. And Eric, that’s some pretty hectic stuff u are accusing him of…oh, iforgot, we all just spew our emotional reactions all over the intertubes without a thought for the consequences sry, mybad
