How to use put to sleep in a sentence?

  1. Anthony Bove:

    My father feels terrible that the dogs are probably going to be put to sleep, the pit bull is not an inherently evil dog. But ... these pit bulls might have been trained as guard or attack dogs. He remembers the dogs licking his blood off the ground. They wanted to finish the job. That's very disturbing to him.

  2. Jill Bannik-Brecht:

    I used to work for a high-kill animal shelter, and I knew what happened to the old dogs when they came in. I remember one dog who animal control literally picked up from the side of his dead owner’s body, and he didn’t even have an opportunity to be adopted. He was put to sleep because we didn’t have space.

  3. Bess Jensen:

    They know each one of us. When I pick them up, they know my voice and they know my feel. They just snuggle in and we rock, i usually put them to sleep -- if the nurses need a baby put to sleep they bring them to me.
