Update on dog who was seized as 'evidence' and was in danger of being destroyed

See also

It is a particularly special morning for a dog named "Fisher," who recently called a kennel run at the Dekalb County Animal Services facility, in Georgia, home.

Fisher, the 30-pound "pittie," who had the quirky habit of holding his little, pink tongue outside of his mouth, has been rescued.

On Christmas Eve, Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue pulled the former "evidence" dog to safety.

Prior to being rescued, Fisher had been at risk of being destroyed after his "safe" period as an evidence dog from a Georgia dog-fighting operation, ended. At one point, Fisher had a potential adopter/rescuer, but that person disappeared, leaving Fisher in danger.

Today, the future is once again bright for Fisher.
