Sign the Petition to Benton Ark City Officials and Animal Control

This petition closed about 1 year ago

Norman is a non aggressive, gentle, and playful 150 pound Bull Mastiff who accidentally got out of his yard and went exploring. He saw a smaller 13 year old, 10 pound dog, and something triggered him to begin shaking Shelby. There was no blood, no lacerations and he certainly did not mutilate her.  He was shaking her. We have all seen dogs do this when they play with their toys, and  sadly it caused the Shelby's death. In Benton Arkansas, city officials believe that this one and only incident warrants a death sentence. Even though he has NEVER had any prior incidents of any kind, they prefer to kill him rather than give him a second chance. He has spent his entire life around special needs children and many other animals, and has never shown aggression. He was evaluated at the shelter by a professional behaviorist and passed with flying colors. After the hearing on 2/7, Norman was finally allowed to the leave the shelter and go to his new home outside the city limits. He is not allowed to go back to his home with his mom in Benton unless she appeals the decision. If she does, he could still be euthanized!
