Up Date on Dojie Starr,
The County contacted us with an offer. If we accept all charges agents Dojie and Lucy. The county would be so kind to as to drop all fines but would be charged just not fined. I find it Funny that you are willing to drop the money but not the charge. Washington County Oregon you have pushed back this court date 3 times from march of 2014 and now this offer with less the 48 hrs. to respond after how long. no this is not right or correct. I will go to court or you will drop all charges. no if and or but. Drop all the charges. The people of Washington county Oregon should be ashamed of there county I know I am. Just shameful how they are acting, Washington County drops all charges Agents Dojie and Lucy. save some dignity and do what is right. You have put a animal Killer back on the streets to kill again. Now you want me to take the blame for your wrong doing no way. You Washington County Oregon are in the wrong. the whole world knows it including you. You will drop all charges. I encourage you to call the county and let them know what you think. Haven't you damaged our lives enough? you have changed my life forever and now can not trust my county or any police or animal control to do any good in Washington County Oregon. I will never allow another animal control, really a animal abuser near me or my family that you call pets again. I hurt, I do not trust my county to do what is right and this confirms that . They have proved to be liars that want to hurt and kill.
Create laws that protect animals from abuse by animal control officers, Law Enforcement, and remove Washington County Animal Control Officer, Hoyt Stepp, from his position. Thank you for sharing with all you know.
Thank you for all the support today. it is hard to see lies in your face and just as hard to not be allowed to here what was being said. #justicefordojie has just started. we will continue to fight for all animals rights.
Dear Friends of Dojie: To all who have called and messaged to say that you plan to be at Washington County Animal Services in Hillsboro at 2 PM on Wednesday for the news conference concerning the brutal beating of Dojie, please show the utmost regard for all officials and anyone you encounter. Dojie would like any and all public support for her to be just like she is "“ gentle, well-mannered and respectful.

Dr. told us today that Dojie's eye is healing well, and he was able to remove her stitches. I asked how much longer we will have to be careful, and he told us that we will always have to be careful. She no longer has a spare; she is down to one eye. As for the wound itself, one more week of caution should do it. (Meaning cone-off while supervised, but no bath, or trips to the beach yet) I was glad to have her out of the cone, and enjoying the sun today. At Longbottom Coffee in Hillsboro she tried to play with her Newfoundland friend and loved on a baby, and his big sister. Kids are so cool, because they are the perfect height to kiss. Dojie only wants to meet and love them. They love her and don't care that she has only one eye. I only hope that someday soon she will be able to visit with sick and injured children, and show them that there is still life, and love after illness, injury and disfigurement. She knows unconditional love and I want her to share it with as many people as possible.
Tomorrow is back to the Dr. in the morning to see how her eye is healing. If all goes well, she will get her stitches out, and hopefully we will be rid of the cone. Dojie will be so glad to have the cone of shame off when we get the OK. We will let you know when we have more information on the investigation. Detective Banks' investigation is still active and she is keeping me informed as much as she can without comprising the case. Just calls letting me know she is still on the case, make me feel I am being kept up to date. Thank you all again and please stay tuned for more information on #justicefordojie
No Please dad don't put on the cone of shame on me again Dojie Starr begged. Then when that did not work she looked at Jen my roommate for help and this was taken. Hopefully it comes off Thursday. We will see Dr. Scherlie is Thursday morning. So thankful for the amazing care. Like I have said before if it was not for each and every one of you. Dojie Starr would not been taken care of by the top people and the top facility in Oregon. Thank each one of you.
During our brief appearance on Fight Church TV you will find my thank-you to all of you. It isn't much, but it is from the bottom of my heart. Thank you. Fight Church TV was the group that helped to get Hillsboro Police to open a Full Investigation into the senseless beating of Dojie the river rescue dog.
Warning the video in the link below contains strong language. Viewer discretion is advised. We do not intend to offend anyone.
Dojie Starr is resting and sleeping a lot, we all should take a page from our animal companions/family members. When it comes to the healing our body's all that have a beating hart need time to heal. Time heals the body and time the mind. Dojie had her eye removed on Wednesday. The eye the crack in her skull along with her front shoulder will heal in 8 to 12 weeks. Dojie can not wait to start working on some adaptive training to get Dojie used to this new world Dojie must live in now. Dojie has night mares, day and night when she sleeps; they are so bad that it wakes Marlin Starr up at night. Dojie will calm down when she realizes Daddy is there and Daddy loves her. Dojie Starr will snuggle close Marlin sigh and drift off back to sleep again. Marlin hopes they don't last very long. Dojie is so thankful when she has time without the cone of shame on. For now it must be on Dojie most of the time. Dojie will go back to the Dr. on Thursday and is hoping for an all is ok sign. The Detective is still investigating every possible lead this will take time. The Detective has kept in contact with Marlin Starr. For that all Marlin Starr can say is THANK YOU DETECTIVE.
To each and every one of you Dojie there are no words to begin to thank all of you. If it was not for you, Dojie would not have an active case being investigated and she would not have the amazing care she is receiving from the top facility for animal care there is from the bottom of my hart I thank you.

Dr. Scherlie's is a ophthalmology specialist and the top in his field.
thank you for your love.
Thank you for showing Dojie that the Oregon the northwest and the United States of America is filled with loving people. United States of America is still the compassionate kind nation that we all hope it is. If you don't believe me just look at what has happened to Dojie the river rescue dog and the untold numbers of people that love her. I can say that every state in the united states of America on Monday Called on Dojie the river rescue dogs behalf thank you for your love for Dojie the river rescue dog.
Thanks again for your love, support, and generosity. Because of your generosity, we have been able to pay for all of Dojie's procedures, to-date. I can't tell you how grateful I am to you. I would not have been able to pay for all of this myself, and that would have caused so much more additional anxiety in an already very stressful situation.
Dojie has been resting comfortably at home. She has been sleeping a lot, but has been happy to get up and greet her friends and family that have stopped by for a quick visit. Sometimes she will even bring them a ball to throw....we still have some adjustments to make on our catching game, without the eye, but still great at fetching.

You know after a traumatic incident it takes a bit for it all to sink in. Well that is where I am now. I Am 6'4 and not a skinny or small man. On the 25th when animal control Limited duty Deputy Sheriffs officers Randal B. Covey and Hoyt Stepp were in front of the Sheriffs office in Hillsboro Oregon. Dojie circled me from one side to the other side. Sat down and started pressing against me. Last night I realized that she had put her body between me and them to protect me. With a cracked skull a freshly exploded eye and a hurt shoulder her only concern was me. It was as if she was saying please don't kill them daddy please don't I love you. Last night I broke down crying uncontrollably. I realized that the only reason I am here to day is because of the silent unconditional Love of Dojie. I here people try to say PTSD is no reason for Service Dog. Bull Shit she proved you all wrong in one day. She Did keep me from the edge loosing complete control of ability to keep my self from doing to both of them what they did to her. I am forever grateful to Dojie for saving me from a life in prison. With this in mind I ask for your help where there is info on PTSD Dogs and how to train them.I would like to help

To give me a hug say I'm sorry and donate. then to tell me if there is anything I can do please let me know. each and every one of you that I do not know. It floors me how much love is being shown. Veterans of our great country have come forward to personally tell me things like this. I posted this last night but wanted to repost it here. I am not a Veteran my self but I want to thank each of you for putting your life on the line for Me and Dojie.
thank you to all the Veterans out there for your selfless sacrifice I wish I could call my self one of you. when talking about Army Veteran 06 to 08 Anthony Muto from Chicago Now living in Springfield Illinois. When he asked me to call I did. What happened next made a big man cry. he Just said No Veteran deserves to be able to treat a dog. Like that. " no service dog acts the way this veteran said his training should go ahead of that and he should act better than the regular person he chose to disobey his oth and do unnecessary harm on this pup" he then asked for my address when I gave it he told me "i'm sending $1000 to you I know what happened. That you were removed permanently from the schedule at your job. go love your pup.
Thank you Anthony for your service to our country, I'm sorry it took our country so long for us as a nation. To attempt to even put a drop in the bucket to repay you for the debt we owe you for our continued freedom. The gratitude that Dojie & my self, and others have is huge. Not having been in the service or a veteran myself. I hold you all up in the most respect and love I have. Thank you so much for your love. To the people in our community in our great amazingly beautiful state Of Oregon, across the nation and around the world. Your love is felt. Please if you have seen this please leave a message for Dojie and me and please please tell where you are at in this great world.
With humble gratitude
Marlin Starr Dojie's human loyal companion that loves her
Ps she is snoring deep in sleep beside me she is glad to be home.
In my own opinion, it is my personal belief.
That This should have never come to this If.
City of Hillsboro would have taken this seriously by sending a real policeman to do a actual investigation instead of a code enforcement geek. That called me to tell me that the case was closed while I was at the Dr. office for the first time. To tell me reasonable force was applied and I could pick up my file the next day. In under 2 hrs. Then ignoring all calls for help that I and ,y roommate put into the Police for 6 days. Till Monday A detective Called me to tell me that. she Just got assigned assigned that day. Monday after the brutal beating accrued and day 6 of #justicefordojie
This should have never come to this if.
The Washington County Field Supervisor.
Limited duty Deputy Sheriff Randall B. Covey and officer Hoyt Stepp
Would have not tried to tell me that Brutal beating my river rescue Dog Dojie. Was necessary and Lying on a report while desperately trying to cover it up with the City of Hillsboro his supervisors and Sheriff Pat Garrett. What had happened that Day.
This would have never come this far at all. Why I do not like to be in the public eye.
Question If I have had so much info sent to me from people that I do not know. about what a despicable man. Hoyt Stepp is and His superviser is. What a abuser of power as a Leader of the police departments in Alaska he was. the countless acts of senseless valance he has administered under the guise of Protecting and serving the public as a public servant. that was Very Well covered up in Alaska. Why was Hoyt Stepp Hired December 13 2013 and allowed to turn a river rescue dog into a disabled river rescue dog I do not get it and I will Hace #justicefordojie
I will do my best that I can to be a positive influence threw this. This will be the hardest thing that I to do but I promise to do my best. I am Just a simple man that loves the river music and animals. I am not perfect by any means but I wake up every day now knowing that I have the ability to lift others up. I have the voice to help animals people and our wilderness. Home for me is on the rivers of the North West it has been that way for over 20 years now. I get what I call pavement fever. Or city flu and must run away to the river in the wilderness. To push the reset button on my life. I wish I could do that now, but I can't hopefully soon. As soon as Dojie Heals we will be starting to re train her to see haw far she will be able to get back to. the loving river rescue dog she was and is.
Marlin Starr the human that love his Dojie the river rescue dog.
Sorry about the grammer ans spelling I am dyslexic and this took over two hrs to do on pc. I have been a open book with all of you amazing human beings, and will continue to do so. you all Deserve that and so much more.
We will move on finding a way to move forward helping as many as we can in love and kindness. We will do as much as we can along the way.

I have two hands and a strong back, and I will make enough to survive. This money must go Dojie's care and to help others. I will do my best to get #justicefordojie and to bring awareness to what is going on in my community, in our nation and around the world. Thank you for all the love you have shown to Dojie and Me.

Below is his comment please respond to him PLEASE
Marlin Owner of Dojie the river rescue dog
who is just getting out of surgery
I am begining to wonder if this is legit or not. He wont advise what happened in this case at all. This GoFund account has been active for 21 months now. 21 months and the k9 is still functioning with the crushed skull and eye issues. These I would consider exigent circumstances and would have HAD to have been taken care of before now. He told me today that his k9 goes in tomorrow for surgery. When I asked more questions he would not respond. I advised him that I was getting the feeling this was a fraudulent case of GoFund & theft by deception. Please correct me if im wrong.
you asked so please respond to him.
yes the fund site is 21 months I was trying to save a business from going under. I was able to raise $100 as you can manage not enough. when Dojie the river rescue dog was brutality beaten by your brothers in arms, fellow officers. I just changed the name and posted this account. I'm sorry that I did not set up a brand new one. that would have been better I know that now. I did not know that when I started I found out this 4 days into this being public. I am sorry you don't belive me. but by the end of the day with the help of the kind people out there I think you might change your mind.
Forgive me please; they call me Marlin Starr DRH Dyslexic Rafting Hippie so typing all of this stuff over the last 7 days has not been easy. Most of it with the assistance of my phone talk to write. For the first few days every time I said Dojie it would type it would come back deodorant frustratingly slow work. It has been a humbling emotional experience so far so don't judge a Big Man if he cries.
Over the last 7 days I am grateful to say because of all of you; yesterday a detective has been assigned to the case, and is actively. I repeat actively, looking into the truth surrounding the beating of Dojie the River Rescue Dog.
Thank you for all of your comments, calls, Texts and Emails I would like to thank each and every one of you. All of your comments on Dojie Starr Facebook page are so Uplifting please show her on her site how much we LOVE her as she goes into surgery tomorrow for the removal of her eye. Although there was inflammation in her shoulder, tissue damage around the eye, a damaged eye and cracked skull; the surgeon is the best in his field and she is in good hands. Even though she is in pain she still is in dragging me with her to meet strangers for that I am thankful. Dojie uncrushable spirit in this time of tragedy her docile and loveable nature continues to uplift others. And her story will not end with this tragedy.
I am continuing to gather funds for her surgery and other expenses. The tremendous support of #justicefordojie has proven the generosity and public support of the community and the nation is alive and well. Dojie sends her love! Please continue to share and donate to help Dojie pay for her continued recovery.
There is a benefit concert tonight at 7PM at The Bravo Lounge 8560 S.E Division St. Portland, Oregon. Please send all comments of love to Dojies Starr Facebook page; comments are welcome if they come from love for her. Please Do Not Hate the men that did this. Neither of us wishes anyone to be harmed in the process of #justicefordojie. As always I will try my best to keep all you amazing people updated. Please let us all be Peaceful loving Humans beings
