Grandmother signs killer dog over to rescue group
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Onion, the dog that killed a one-year-old Henderson boy on his birthday, has been signed over to the Lexus Project, New York-based rescue group that has been working to save him.
According to the Lexus Project, Elizabeth Keller decided to sign Onion over to the group because of the lies put out by Henderson Animal Control as to Onion's temperament and what occured.
Keller is the grandmother of the child that was killed.
The press release also says that Keller was concerned with how the dog was being treated and wanted him in better hands and that she has never told anyone that the dog had been anything but a loving and cherished family member.
A judge ruled May 11 that the Lexus Project had no right to challenge municipal codes in Henderson because they were not the owners of the dog.
Judge Kishner said, "A third party cannot just come in and state, on their own, they just wish they could be part of the case."
Clark County District Court Judge Joanna Kishner lifted a temporary restraining order, clearing the way for Onion to be put down.
The Lexus Project says that a motion for reconsideration, based upon the grandmother's request, has been submitted to the court for signature.
