MONTROSE, Colo. (AP) -- A Montrose veteran is challenging a judge's decision to euthanize his service dog for repeatedly biting a woman.
The Montrose Daily Press reported Wednesday that Jeremiah Aguilar has filed an appeal.
He was ordered to turn the dog, Dutch, over to animal control officials on Feb. 14 but never did. Aguilar maintains that his dog was provoked but the woman denies that.
She says she broke up a fight between Dutch and her dog and that Dutch attacked her once she took him home to clean him up. She raised Dutch before giving him to Aguilar.
Aguilar has been ordered to appear in court in April to show why he shouldn't be held in contempt of court for not turning the dog over.
