Via TMZ Sports:

Turns out Nunez-Roches is also a dog breeder. In case you’re unfamiliar, Cane Corso’s are a form of pit bull.

The animal rescue group took Jitterbug to a shelter and an official there says they contacted Nunez-Roches to say they had his dog. The official said, “He had responded back that he would pick her up on Sunday, which I thought was odd because they played Detroit on Sunday and they had a 4:25 game, so how would he get back in time to pick her up at 7? Was football more important?” He never picked up his dog.

Let’s hope we don’t have a Michael Vick situation.  Because it certainly sounds like there’s some neglect and maybe some dog fighting going on.
