Aww doggy... Man that sucks. Can't these people sue the city for this? Sounds like a bunch of corrupt politicians imposing their will and using the law to their advantage - no due process?
If I was in this family I'd work out a deal to steal the dog back and move out of that corrupt ass city.
My dog gets a little excited sometimes and will give people little love bites lol. They don't hurt but I'm sure an unsuspecting obnoxious child would over exaggerate and say he bit the shit out them. But in this city - people would be more concerned over pit bulls (who are misunderstood themselves) instead of something thats obviously a mellow family dog.
