A non-profit charity, which trains emotional support and service dogs for disabled veterans, is fighting to remove a dangerous dog designation from a rescue dog named Jordan. In November 2018, Jordan was attacked, while on leash, by a dog outside of an Illinois PetSmart store. According to Peter Cangelosi, with Pets and Vets USA, Jordan grabbed hold of and held onto, the smaller dog after it went after him - the smaller dog was not seriously injured, but Jordan is suffering from the consequences of that fateful day because he was the larger dog and he looks like a pit bull "type."
Cangelosi tells Animal Victory that DuPage County Animal Control conducted a "one-sided investigation" and did not bother interviewing the people who witnessed the incident. Jordan was labeled "dangerous" and now he has to wear a muzzle every time he leaves the Pets and Vets USA property.
Pets and Vets USA is fighting to have Jordan's dangerous dog designation removed in court in August. When and if that happens, Jordan will be trained as a PTSD service dog for a three-tour, U.S. Marine Purple Heart recipient named Joe who has fallen in love with the maligned dog.
Please sign the petition on Jordan's behalf. According to the attorneys working on this case, a dangerous dog designation has never been overturned in DuPage County, but there is a first time for everything and Jordan needs and deserves our collective support!
