We have posted twice about the case of Diggy (a.k.a. Sir Wiggleton), who is the subject of a battle between his owner and authorities in Waterford, Michigan. (See here and here .) The town’s breed-specific legislation bans Pit Bulls, and the town considers Diggy to be a member of the banned breeds. But the dog’s owner, his veterinarian, and the shelter from which he was adopted all say that Diggy is an American Bulldog. There is now a hearing set for August 11 to decide if Dan Tillery must pay the fines that he has racked up because of Diggy.
And whereas the whole ruckus was caused by some townsfolk complaining, in the weeks since, many more people have rallied in support of Tillery and Diggy. . .
