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.

Ugh, I just hate how they say "destroy" when referring to putting an animal down. You destroy old cars, not animals.

Trust me I have worked in the Canadian Animal Services system for 30 years and this dog will NOT be put down if he isn't terminally ill (even still there is foster that will take him) or insanely aggressive beyond rehabilitation. Thanks for making us look like a slaughter house TMZ! We work so hard and you destroy that in one simple piece.

Evi and Randy are to blame for this, and nobody else.

I really cannot believe this is actually an issue. There seems to be plenty of ways to handle the dog situation other than by what is, apparently, happening. Why doesn't a member of Quaid's family, or at least a friend, come and take possession of the dog so that, what shouldn't even be an issue, can be resolved?

If, for some reason, NOBODY in Quaid's camp can come rescue the pup, can't Randy and his wife have the opportunity to have their dog placed at a private kennel, at their own expense? I mean, I know times are tough right now, but I gotta believe that Randy can find a way to pony-up a private kennel bill. While I don't know how much boarding costs in Canada, but here in Denver it runs about $150 per week for a reputable kennel that includes daily food, exercise, and playtime.

Seriously, if this dog is actually forfeited to Animal Control and euthanized, everyone from the Quaids to the Canadian Government, and every party in between, should be ashamed of themselves.

Posted in the Globe and Mail Tuesday

"But there was some good news for the couple Tuesday: their dog is safe. Wendy Stewart, a spokesperson for the City of Vancouver, said the dog, which was seized by police and turned over to the city shelter when the couple was arrested, is doing well.

“It’s in good health and being cared for by staff,” said Ms. Stewart.

She said a representative for the couple is scheduled to collect the dog shortly and settle the account for its care. “We’re discussing that process,” said Ms. Stewart."

THE QUAID'S SHOULD OF BEEN ASKED IF THERE WAS SOMEONE WHO COULD LOOK AFTER THE POOCH UNTIL THEY WERE RELEASED! WHAT GIVES WITH THE AUTHORITIES THEY MUST NOT BE ANIMAL LOVERS....I WOULD JUST BE DEVASTATED IF MY DOG OR BIRD OR CATS WERE DESTROYED FOR WHATEVER REASON.
