For 30 years CC Baird operated a licensed random source dog dealership with the consent of the US Government. This, despite his numerous violations of animal protection laws and accusations of theft of dogs from backyards.

Ralph Rosetti owned a used furniture store on Second Avenue in the East Vilage in Manhattan. Sandy, a Yellow Lab, was loved by everyone in the commmunity, and spent his time lounging around the store. Once day, an off duty cop by the name of Fermin Archer, who had a history of threateing dogs with his gun, took out his gun and shot and killed Sandy because Sandy was barking. It was front page in the news. The animal community was outraged. Three were half a dozen witnesses. It was broad daylight. Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's law firm agreed to take on the case for free (before Mr. Giuliani was Mayor). You would be amazed that one of teh top law firms in New York City missed legal deadlines and then pretended that there was "no case." The animal community moved on with their lives and a year later only Companion Animal Network was still trying to get justice for Sandy and Ralph Rosetti.
