Soap Actor Despondent Over Dog’s Forced Euthanasia Kills Self

Animal lovers understand all too well the grief of losing a furry or other non-human companion. But for a New York actor who had appeared in TV soap operas, the loss of his beloved dog Rocco was more than he could handle—especially considering the circumstances. The dog, a pit bull, was perfectly healthy at the time it was destroyed.

Forty-seven-year-old Nick Santino, whose TV credits included roles in All My Children and Guiding Light, took his own life on Tuesday, the New York Post reports. Earlier in the day, he euthanized Rocco, which he had rescued from a shelter several years ago.

My husband suggested that instead of Nick killing himself and his dog, he might have MOVED his residence....

what a sad story...my dog is my best friend as well..I would take him and live in a box before I'd be forced into euthanizing him.

Why was he forced to destroy his dog. My land lord decided that I had to get rid of my dog and or move. She offered to have them "PUT DOWN" for me. I took my dogs and went to live in the timber rather than destroy them. She told me they were all going to die anyway. Well, she was right. They did eventually die. But not with a needle in their vein. I will never regret my choice. We had a good life out there in the timber although we were only there a few months. Most peaceful time I ever had.
