Last Wednesday, Kurt Haupt stood helplessly in a Toronto park holding the mauled body of his beloved dachshund Dacky as the dogs who allegedly killed him walked away.
“My dog, she runs towards them. Immediately they grabbed her and dropped her," he told CityNews. “I knew she was dead.”
It's a devastating loss for Haupt, who is single and childless and described Dacky as his best friend.
