MANATEE -- Two dogs scheduled to be euthanized on Friday by Manatee Count, have been given a five-day reprieve so that a judge can review a new motion in the lengthy legal fight over their fate.
Buck and Bill were seized by Manatee County Animal Services shortly after Dec. 24, 2012, when the dogs bit a 13-year-old boy three times. The county has ordered the dogs be destroyed, claiming they are dangerous.
Karen Erskine, owner of the two Australian shepherd and nationally ranked dog trainer, has been fighting the seizure and kill order.
