Did This Vet Do The Right Thing by Saving the Dog Instead of Euthanizing It?

Benji, a 10-year-old mutt, had a debilitating stroke earlier this year. Its owner, an Australian diplomat in Taipei, Taiwan, took her to a vet and asked that the dog be euthanized to save her needless indignity and suffering.

According to Taipei Times, veterinarian Yang Dong-sheng, took the money but unbeknownst to the owner, decided to save Benji at his own expense. Within weeks, Benji had recovered enough to escape from the doctor's home and was later caught by a dog-catcher who found her wandering on the street.

Benji was then returned to her owner of record, who was shocked to find the dog still alive. He decided to sue the vet for breach of contract. The doctor, on the other hand, claimed that he did nothing wrong.
