    I don't know where Lucky is now, but I do know the family has 2 other dogs but Devin Calhoun is not supposed to return to his home. Who knows if he has returned home.

    There's a special place in hell for people like Devin Calhoun. And hell is where he's going to spend all of eternity. What kind of a sadistic monster could hurt a defenseless, innocent animal? I'd like to know where the dog is now, if he's up for adoption and how I can help. Also, I pray that the poor thing is not returned to that family. Please update this story. Thanks
