100% Service Connected Army Veteran seeks assistance with saving our family dog Nikko from being put to death by the State of Virginia.  Nikko is a lovable family pet that I got after suffering a heart attack back in December of 2016 when he was only 9 months old.  Thanks to my daily walks with Nikko, my blood pressure is  under control for the first time in years.  He saved my life and now I am trying to save his.  Nikko bit a former friend of my son who  entered my home in an impaired state, went behind the gate that I have to protect visitors from the dog and got in the dog's face.  The dog bit him once to protect himself and because of this, they want to kill my dog.  If I entered someone's home and got in their face, they would feel threatened even if I never uttered a word.  This individual had been told more than once not to interact with the dog.  Help get Nikko off death row and back to his family.  The state takes your dog away, traumatizes your pet by putting them in a cage for almost two months and then charges the owner an unaffordable 30 dollars per day.  This is both emotionally and financially devastating.  Please help.
