The Quaids' Arrest Could Mean Death for Doggie

10/26/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There was a third Quaid in the car when Evi and Randy were arrested in Canada last week ... their beloved pooch Doji ... and TMZ has learned he could pay for his master's sins ... with his life.

Quaids arrested.

While Evi and Randy are still "in detention" after being nabbed on an active arrest warrant ... we've learned Doji has been placed in an animal shelter in Vancouver for the time being.

But Doji's days could be numbered -- because according to Vancouver law, any dog that has been impounded for more than 72 hours becomes city property ... and the pound keeper is then given the authority to "destroy, or sell by auction or private sale, an impounded dog."

We spoke to someone at Animal Control in Vancouver who told us they "make every effort to not put the dogs to sleep" ... and generally try to find the animals a home through adoption.

Still, look at this face (the one on the left) ... someone better act fast.

nothing will happen to the dog...obviously it will get adopted. Vancouver SPCA doesn't just put dogs down after three days...they keep them around for quite a while.

I think TMZ has it wrong. Here in Canada, we save the animals but put celebrities to sleep, with our nightlife.

Since I work at Animal Control, I can assure everyone freaking out over the dog's fate, that this is sensational media at its finest. Dogs that are not claimed by owner, or do not have a care plan in place with a relative or friend are put up for adoption. Our adoption rate is over 90%. Nice try to stir it up but really unsuccessful ;)

I hope someone adopts that poor dog. He shouldn't have to suffer for having crazy ass owners.

The news here by The Province newspaper reported the dog has just been put down. Justin Bieber was playing laser tag with it when the dog cornered him and called him names here in Vancouver. The investigation is ongoing..........

Trust the doggie will be adopted (with a face and eyes like that who can resist!)....and the media coverage I believe was there to get that adorable dog adopted. For once media coverage did some good...if I wasn't already filled up on critters (8 cats, 7 ducks, rooster, chicken, baby kitten and sweet doggie!) I would gladly add that cutie pie to the mix. Critters rule my friends...best friends and companions in the universe!!
