HENDERSON, Nev. -- The city of Henderson and the Lexus Project have agreed to dismiss the case involving Onion, the dog responsible for the death of a 1-year-old child in April 2012.
Onion has been released and has already been moved to an animal sanctuary in Denver, Colo.
Lexus has not provided details about when the deal was finalized or when Onion was moved. Lexus says that out of respect for the family, Onion was moved quietly.
The 6-year-old Mastiff-Rhodesian Ridgeback mix killed Jeremiah Eskew-Shahan on April 28, 2012.
The boy's family in Henderson voluntarily gave the animal up for euthanasia.
A court injunction delayed the death pending a court hearing. The legal fight over the dog's future went all the way to the state Supreme Court.
Lexus Project lawyer Rich Rosenthal argued that the dog should be sent to live at a sanctuary outside Denver. He said the 120-pound family pet was only following its nature.
