The euthanasia of a dog from a local animal shelter has people heated.
Monday at a city council workshop, the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region explained why they put down a dog.
You may recall the story of a puppy, named Happy, who failed a behavior test at the Pueblo Animal Shelter and was scheduled to be put down. Several people heard about Happy and demanded something be done. Happy was eventually sent to a behavior specialist in Boulder and was adopted to Kent Hill.
Hill joined dozens of others rallying in front of city hall Monday night before a meeting to address the euthanasia of another dog, named Charlie, who many believed could have been adopted out.
Rachael Haddan reached out to 11 News in early May. Haddan provide video of Charlie playing fetch before he was put down a few days later.
The humane society admitted that Charlie was great with people.
"We don't want to put an animal into the community that is unsafe and we felt that Charlie was unsafe," said Jan McHugh-Smith the president and CEO of the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.
