HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) - A group of dog lovers is trying to prod Henderson officials into sparing the life of a mastiff-Rhodesian ridgeback mix that bit and killed a 1-year-old boy.
The group has urged city officials to stop the scheduled euthanasia of the 6-year-old dog named Onion, saying it has found a dog sanctuary near Denver where the animal could spend the rest of his life.
Les Golden, a Chicago-area dog rescuer who is leading the campaign, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/IQdhPW ) that he hopes a flood of supporters will persuade Mayor Any Hafen to stay the euthanasia.
The dog could be killed Monday or Tuesday after a 10-day health quarantine ends.
Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan grabbed onto Onion to help himself stand up before he was bitten April 27 at home.
