URGENT UPDATE!!  Today, April 26th, the judge ordered for Lilly to be put down. I will soon post an address and ask all of you to write a letter to appeal this decision. Please read about Lilly, read about the incident, and if you disagree on her being killed please write a letter and mail it once I post address. Like her page at Support Lilly & Save Her Life and form your opinion. Thank you!

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:  PLEASE HELP SAVE LILLY’S LIFE…Many of may recall a post from back on August 22, where I posted about my dog Lilly biting/grabbing a little boy who fell on her. The injury consisted of a 2 inch straight cut on his arm, we are unsure if this is from her mouth as she was barking during the 7 second incident, or the injury was caused by her prong collar as there were no other teeth marks on his arm either upper or lower, which you would expect from a bite. Today was our first day in court regarding the situation. We had stayed up last night preparing for the case by watching videos from the restaurant and dash cam footage. When we got to the courthouse today, we reviewed the case with the Rich County, UT city attorney. We explained to him our history with Lilly, how she has been in training since a puppy, that she has her CGC certification, and that she was an important part of our family, and that she is loved by not only our family, but the groomer she goes to, the vet, the trainer, and friends. The video from the restaurant is kind of blurry, but it appears the child stepped on her tail and fell, it shows the parents walking in the opposite direction, I assume to get a table and not really paying attention to where their children are going (ages 2 and approx. 4) The Dash cam footage from the responding officer shows the officer refusing to take statements from witnesses that saw the child fall, as well as him saying on camera “I would just shoot the dog.” After hearing our view of what happened the Rich County attorney said that if we lost this case he is recommending Lilly be put down. He also stated to us that Great Pyrenees are NOT family dogs and that they are just like wolves and coyotes. He doesn’t believe that any of them can be loving family companions. I need all of your help to Save my dog Lilly from being subjected to this invalid opinion of those who don’t know the breed. Please send me to pictures, letters or anything that you feel would help show just how loving caring this breed really is THANK YOU
