An Army Veteran with disabilities is asking for the public’s help in saving his service dog, Dutch, from court-ordered euthanasia. After being punched, kicked, and hit with a metal pole for several minutes, Dutch bit his attacker and has now been accused of being a “vicious” dog.
Dutch is a 4-year-old American Allaunt, who is a registered service dog and an important part of Jeremy Aguilar’s life. Dutch has never shown any aggressive behavior before or after the incident and is a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen.
Jeremy served in the Army, and fought in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He also was also deployed to Hurricane Katrina with the Oklahoma National Guard, which was the first unit to show up. Dutch came into Jeremy’s life a month after he married his wife Heather three years ago. Heather says that Dutch has been “the most therapeutic thing that could have ever happened” to her husband.
Look at this violent menace to society.
Tumblr, please take a second to save Dutch. His hearing is on February 14th. He might be euthanized and his owners might have to pay a fine/serve time in jail. All because some a piece of subhuman slime beat this dog with a pole and then had the audacity to press charges when he minimally defended himself.
