This story makes me sick.
From the article:
“An Army Veteran with disabilities is asking for the public’s help in saving his service dog, Dutch, from court-ordered euthanasia. After being punched, kicked, and hit with a metal pole for several minutes, Dutch bit his attacker and has now been accused of being a “vicious” dog.
Dutch is a 4-year-old American Allaunt, who is a registered service dog and an important part of Jeremy Aguilar’s life. Dutch has never shown any aggressive behavior before or after the incident and is a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen.”
Read the story for more details- if you can bear it- the dog is facing euthanasia because the woman who beat him is pressing charges against the family. Not only that, but the judge can also order the dog owner to a year in jail. She is allowed to press charges against this dog AFTER admitting that she beat the dog with a METAL POLE for several minutes.
I can’t even handle the absolute injustice of this case. I don’t know if the petition will actually do any good, but it can’t hurt. The petition is located here:
Please take a minute to go sign it, and reblog, please!
