Laker was owned by a drug dealer whose home was raided by the ATF. When they saw the animal chained to his dog house, they called Animal Control. A thermometer placed beside Laker in his house registered 128 degrees! The dog was promptly taken away. The owner, despite having been arrested, wanted the dog back, but everyone involved knew this was a bad idea, so Laker disappeared. He's now safe and happy and is showing everyone what a sweet, gentle boy he really is.
