Sorry, I do not know what to do in this situation, except to quickly contact every pit bull group or animal advocacy group you can find to ask them how you can fight back. I'm afraid that if quick action isn't taken, your dog could soon be put to sleep.

Don't be stopped by that rude official. Their goal is to get you out of their hair as quickly as possible. Their mode of operation is to behave like a _ _ holes, hoping you will be intimidated and frustrated and just give up.

Get help fast. Don't let them win. Your dog needs you now.

Is there a local vet who knows your dog and can intervene to vouch that your dog is not a pit bull?

Maybe the Humane Society of Aurora can help advocate for you and your dog. They seem to be used to dealing with the local animal control:


Here is a pit bull group in Denver. Maybe they can advise you:


^ The following blurb came from that website:

Do you have any friends of the family who are lawyers and can intervene on your behalf?

Here is a random pit bull group's contact page I found:


I have no personal connection to any rescue group, but I have seen many youtube videos on pit bull interventions from the New York Bully Crew:


All I know is those guys look tough, knowledgeable, and good hearted in their videos. If you need someone to tell you how to fight an injustice, New Yorkers are culturally a good bet.

Get help from someone quick. Fight for your dog.

If the dog is a true Service Dog, then I don't see how they can prevent releasing the dog to you.

I'd suggest to contact the ADA and gather your papers to certify the dog's Service Training.

I'd also suggest to maintain control of the dog to prevent it from getting out of the house.

If the dog is an ESA dog, then you probably have no recourse. To my knowledge, ESA dogs have do not legal protection.

I'm so sorry to hear that! I'm assuming you meant she is a Cane Corso/bulldog mix. That is NOT a pitbull. The AKC recognizes for breeds as pitbulls, none of which are either of yours.

More importantly, if she is legally registered as a service dog, you should be able to get her back. Contact whatever group she is registered through, as and/or legal aid (your local ACLU) to see if they can help.

And please let us know what happens!
