He just said he didn’t want the dog and it wasn’t his, so I took it.”Weibezahl said he pulled the collapsed 2-year-old Mastiff from the pavement and watched over it until Animal Services workers arrived to help. All the while, according to Sheriff’s Office reports, multiple people who saw what happened called 911 and one of those callers gave Orange County deputies enough information to lead them to a suspect.
