Rosco was only protecting his offspring from being assaulted. the person admitted the assaulting Cloei, Rosco daughter. State Animal Control statute states:
" A dog may not be declared vicious if the court determines the conduct of the dog was justified because:
(1) the threat, injury, or death was sustained by a person who at the time was committing a crime or offense upon the owner or custodian of the dog, or was committing a willful trespass or other tort upon the premises or property owned or occupied by the owner of the animal;
(2) the injured, threatened, or killed person was abusing, assaulting, or physically threatening the dog or its offspring, or has in the past abused, assaulted, or physically threatened the dog or its offspring; or
(3) the dog was responding to pain or injury, or was protecting itself, its owner, custodian, or member of its household, kennel, or offspring. "
Yes I do Agree that Cloei was Biting a Jack Russell Terrier however this dog was NOT on a leash as required by law. My Insurance is taking care of BOTH the dog injuries and the Human Injuries. however the judge would not allow Me to defend Rosco. Every time I tried to defend Rosco I was "objection" and "sustained"
