KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.-Montrose authorities are trying to find a veteran's dog after it was ordered to be euthanized following an attack.
According to one of Dutch's certified professional trainers, his owner, Jeremiah Aguilar, reportedly never turned in Dutch to Montrose Animal Control after a court order last week.
News Channel 5 reached out to Aguilar's attorney, who declined to comment on the whereabouts of the dog, but did say they plan on pursuing the appeal, which has a deadline set for next Thursday..
Aguilar left his dog in the care of it's former owner while he was out. Animal Control officers say a female in the home attempted to break up a fight between Dutch and another dog when Dutch bit her.
However, Aguilar says the woman severely beat Dutch before the attack. NewsChannel 5 will continue to provide updates as they become available.
