LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) –
Instead of being put down Tuesday, a dog that killed a Henderson toddler will get a hearing in court on Friday.
Late Monday afternoon, a judge signed an emergency order to stop Henderson Animal Control from putting down the dog, named onion.
The mastiff-Rhodesian mix killed little Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan while his family celebrated the boy's first birthday on April 28.The Lexus Project
, a national animal rights group, is fighting to bring onion to an animal sanctuary near Denver.
The family tells News 3 they want this all to be over so they can start healing.
