In court Miss Dine, of Rowan Court, Penrith, told Judge Chalk: "Jerry has never shown any aggression before.
"He's the softest, loveliest dog.
"I have pictures of him around kids. I'm the parent of a six year old child and I'd never let a dangerous dog near her."...right up until the moment they attack.
Judge Chalk said that he would make a destruction order because he had seen no evidence during the hearing to convince him that Jerry was not a danger to the public.And the typical chav owner is aghast:
After the case, Miss Dine said she would do all she could to save her dog, which originally came from a rescue centre.
She added: "I'm devastated.
"They shouldn't kill a dog without looking at other ways to deal with it. They could say that she should always be muzzled when he's outside.
"I'm going to fight it. Jerry isn't dangerous."Really? Tell that to the newspaper's comment section:
That paints a quite different picture, doesn't it?
