The judge is scheduled to decide 2 p.m. Wednesday whether the 3-year-old dog named Myriah should be euthanized, returned to her owner on a confinement order or transferred to another facility from the Humane Society location where she has been held since November.
Myriah was in court Monday with her owner George Boynton.
Boynton, 61, answered to civil charges filed against him after complaints by his neighbor who said Myriah “aggressively attacked” his small 13-year-old Beagle-mix Lila in three separate incidents last fall.. Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Liberman told ABC News today, declining to release the name of Boyntons neighbor.
Myriah, who wasn't on a leash and not heeding the commands made by Boyntons brother, who was walking her, bit Lila, who was on a leash, in two of the incidents.
Liberman said, though Boynton's lawyer, Randy Robinson, told ABC News Boynton believes Myriah was just playing with Lila.
The Judge threw it out and sent Myriah home with her owner.
