Dog Faces Euthanization After Being Declared "Animal Aggressive"
Rosemary is an 8-year old Australian Shepherd who grew up in her owner's bike shop in downtown Gainesville. However, for the last seven months, she's been living in solitary confinement at Alachua County Animal Services. After many complaints against Rosemary, Animal Services delcared her as being aggressive toward other animals.
Director of Alachua County Animal Services, David Flagler, says its a shame when things like this happen because the animal has to pay for the owners irresponsibility. He says that dogs are like Children that need to be watched and cared for and that dog's follow their instincts and it is up to their owner's to keep them safe.
Rosemary's owner Ted Kubisek has appealed Animal Services charges and is waiting for the court date when he can speak on her behalf.
