A future for rottweilers who were ordered to be euthanized

Posted: Updated:

19 of the 28 rottweilers seized from a house in Leeds after two other dogs killed a man, are one step closer to finding a new home.

The dogs were loaded up at the Birmingham-Jefferson Animal Control Friday afternoon.  They were taken to Crossroads Animal Hospital on Highway 280 and a Chelsea animal hospital. 

The dogs are undergoing any medical treatment needed.  They also are being evaluated ahead of going to a "forever home."

A judge had ordered all 33 dogs seized from the house to be euthanized.  That decision was reversed for 28 of the dogs after they passed temperament testing.  The remaining five dogs had to be put down.

This drama unfolded on September 20, 2012.  85-year old Donald Thomas went to check his mail on Weaver Avenue in Leeds.  Two rottweilers from his neighbors house attacked and killed him.  Thomas' wife found him at the scene.  She called police.  When officers arrived to the scene, they killed the two dogs who attacked Mr. Thomas.
