We found out a disturbing truth about the video. The guy who “freed” Alex, Steve Markwell, owned The Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks, WA, which is now closed down. Steve Markwell was convicted of animal abuse and charity fraud by the Washington State AG.
The video suggest that Alex went on to a better life, but it appears that was not the case. They suspected that the dog would need extensive behavior therapy if he was ever going to be rehabilitated, let alone be adopted. Alex was ultimately adopted by Ron Smith, who takes great care of him. Alex has finally found love and happiness with his new family.
