Lacey, a 12-year-old shepherd mix got loose and bit a dog that walked by her house. Her owner paid the $800 vet bill. The town (also the home of the New England Patriots) held a dangerous dog hearing. The Animal Control Officer ‘testified’ that in ‘09 Lacey (on leash), pinned down an off-leash dog who charged at her. Vet treatment was not needed. The Animal Control Officer went on that in ’12 Lacey pinned down a dog while they were all hiking off leash. Again, no vet treatment was required. Lacey has no history of bites to people. The board of selectmen voted 3-2 that Lacey was dangerous and sentenced her to death. Then Boston Dog Lawyers received a call and got involved.

State law specifically requires that witnesses at dangerous dog hearings be sworn in. Video obtained by Boston Dog Lawyers confirmed the ACO was not sworn in. Case law states a witness must swear to testify truthfully or the witness may not testify.

On appeal in court, we sought reversal of Lacey’s sentence as the town failed to follow the law regarding dog hearings. The Magistrate asked, “is that all you’ve got?” and denied our request. Lacey has been imprisoned for over 100 days. Next week we’re asking a judge to overturn the destruction order.

When the government fails to obey the law is it just a technicality without accountability? Lacey’s life is in jeopardy. The rulings so far have shown that violating the leash law will get you a death sentence and violating state law gets you nothing. IT’S TIME TO BARK BACK!

Pet parents beware when you ask someone to watch your dog for any length of time. Max is a Goldendoodle who traveled to NYC to spend time with a relative. The relative’s roommate fell in love with Max and took great care of him. The 3-year-old dog came back home and was soon the subject of a pet custody lawsuit. The roommate claimed Max was hers. She registered him in her name with the city and a vet. Boston Dog Lawyers successfully argued that ownership was not transferred, and Max was not a gift. When we entrust someone with our pet they must return it upon request in the same or better condition. Create evidence by texting or emailing that you aren’t giving up ownership and make sure to ask for updates and pictures to prove you still care. www.bostondoglawyers.com

Lilly the Westie was a guest at Four Paws Hotel and was reluctant to leave her cage at cleaning time. Seeing this, an employee cleaned with hazardous chemicals without removing the 24 lb. dog. Lilly developed burns on her foot pads and tongue along with pneumonia. After 8 days in the hospital she somehow survived. The quality of life for her and her family has permanently changed. The boarding facility refused to reimburse costs. They admit this happened. Their defense is that the cleaning “was consensual and appropriate.” They claim Lilly was aware of the risks of staying in her cage and signed off on it!

The law must change to treat pets as more than simple property. Those we pay to care for our pets should be held responsible for more than the cost to repair or replace if they damage them. Boston Dog Lawyers took a leap this week and filed suit for $500,000 on behalf of Lilly and her family, seeking punitive damages. Through the courts (and state government) one way to cajole good behavior is by financially punishing bad behavior. www.bostondoglawyers.com

Boston Dog Lawyers is celebrating the life of Leo the Labrador retriever from Natick, MA. He passed away earlier this month. The bond that still exists between Leo and his pet dad Sherif was remarkable to learn about which is why we are acknowledging it here. They were best buds!
