Two frisky rottweilers will be returned to their Richmond, B.C. home after the dogs have successfully completed independent rehabilitation training and an expert determines the dogs are no longer a threat to the community reported Friday's

Ted Townsend, for the City of Richmond, stated the owner will be required to pay a $2,000 fine for two counts of bylaw infractions after pleading guilty and must attend the classes with the two dogs named Axle and Paris.

Last October, the dogs escaped from their home and headed over to a construction site where the larger dog bit Dustin Wang on the leg. Authorities stated it was a minor dog bite, which according to Wang, hardly left a mark.

The dogs were taken into custody and kept at the Richmond Animal Protection Society until their future was decided. The City ordered the dogs euthanized.

The dogs' owner retained an attorney and humane advocates argued that the dogs should be trained, and not killed.
