Oh, that is too bad. I'm surprised someone went to the police and that the police followed up on that. This is a trained assistance dog. Not an out of control pooch. Yeesh. sorry that happened.
Thanks. Some people are so scared of him. Yes, he's tall, but a gentle giant. Wouldn't even kill a mouse he caught in the hallway.
It's so unfair that service animal teams have to suffer the uneducated judgments of others. Just two weeks ago I was wrongly accused of a crime I DID NOT commit and was arrested. I pleaded to the officer to please give my medical alert dog as he twisted my arms and laughed at me. The whole experience has been a nightmare. I kept asking for him but no one would give me any answers. I was thrown in jail and released 2 days later. Upon my departure, I found out that my service dog had been LOST! I have been searching every day to find him and it has been almost three weeks. I have lost my job, my family, and I feel like my life has shattered. The police won't help with anything...I don't understand.
I'm sorry for your experience and if I can get my SD back before I lose my mind, I will make it my lifes goal to do something about the unfair treatment .
Sending positive thoughts your way!
Have you called the ADA and explained to them what is going on? They might be able to help.
