Vet Gets Service Dog Back

Jim Sak is getting his service dog back. A judge ruled today that his pit bull, Snickers, could stay with him while his lawsuit against Aurelia, Iowa moves forward. The city has a ban on pit bulls and the city council voted this month that the ban includes Snickers, even though the dog, is certified through the National Service Animal Registry. Snickers has been with Sak for 5 years, since he suffered a stroke. The 64-year old disabled Vietnam veteran and retired Chicago Police officer says he believes this is a violation of ADA law. Many people came to court today to show support for Sak and Snickers.
