LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – Nevada's highest court is keeping the dog alive that was responsible for killing a 1-year-old Henderson toddler, at least for now.

The Lexus Project, the group fighting for the dog named Onion, petitioned the Nevada Supreme Court successfully to issue a stay in the case. The stay means the city of Henderson can't kill the dog until the case is fully litigated in the courts.

The Mastiff/Rhodesian mix killed Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan while his family celebrated the boy's first birthday on April 28.

Now that legal ownership has been signed over to The Lexus Project, they are asking a judge to prevent Henderson from euthanizing the dog.
