Successful Appeal of Destruction of Family Dog

Oracle Solicitors dealt with a wide variety of cases in 2017.

One case involved a pet Jack Russell puppy. These dogs are known for their overenthusiastic nature, particularly when young, and on this occasion, during a visit to our clients home by a mother and toddler, the puppy jumped up on the child, apparently causing personal injury, namely a scratch under his eye.

When the police arrived they deemed the puppy to be aggressive and detained him in kennels for just under a year. In due course, a magistrates’ court ordered the immediate destruction of the dog.

We successfully appealed against the order and the dog was returned to his family. It is more than 6 months since the puppy was released from kennels and we understand that there have been no further incidents.
