A celebrity dog whisperer is the latest person to pledge his support to Lennox, the Belfast dog sentenced to death due to his likeness to a pitt bull.
The prominent canine trainer Cesar Millan said that his team was working “to find a better solution” other than a Belfast city court order to terminate the pet, due to his likeness to a pitt bull.
Taking to the social networking site, Twitter, to express his support, Millan tweeted on Tuesday: “It’s a decision I truly don’t agree with. My team is working to find a better solution to help.”
A source told the Daily Mirror that Millan was saddened by what happened to the dog and family.
"It’s a matter of working out what can be done and if the authorities would give him the chance.”
Last week, Northern Ireland’s most senior judges rejected a final appeal to spare the life of the 7-year-old American Bulldog Labrador cross . Only an appeal on some aspect of the law or a pardon can save Lennox now.
In a statement on the ‘Save Lennox’ website last week, Lennox’s owner Caroline Barnes expressed her gratitude to all of Lennox’s supporters.
“The past two years have been extremely distressing for many reasons and we appreciate that this has been a very emotive case for dog lovers worldwide who have spoken out against the failings of Breed Specific Legislation. “
“We take some comfort in the knowledge that we are not the only ones to be devastated by the recent ruling. In May 2010 the dog was seized by Belfast City Council dog wardens. It was ruled that Lennox was a danger to the public and should be put down.”
