Rachel Daake claims to be a victim of a vicious dog. She is an animal abuser who punched, kicked, and beat a service dog with a pole. Now she has convinced the city of Montrose, CO that she is somehow a victim because the dog (Dutch) bit her in self defense. According to multiple news articles, "Photos of her injuries that were admitted to court showed that the woman’s wounds from Dutch's bite did not cause any tears in her skin". (http://www.examiner.com/article/save-dutch-the-service-dog-from-euthanasia). Animal abuse is animal abuse. The law should apply to everyone! Don't let an Army Veteran who fought for our country lose his best friend without a fight.
Dutch is an AKC certified Canine Good Citizen, he has never been agressive,
