DNA evidence helps free a service dog from death row

Jeb, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois with alert ears and a dark muzzle, was sentenced to death in September.
The Michigan judge who ordered the dog be euthanized said he had no choice. A neighbor had testified that he saw Jeb standing over the lifeless body of his Pomeranian, Vlad. And state law requires that dangerous dogs – ones that cause serious injury or death to people or other dogs – be destroyed.
