A judge in St. Clair County has given a pet 30 more days, in an effort to keep a dog alive. According to the Times Herald in Port Huron, a judge ordered a 30 day timeout on Monday, so that DNA samples from two dogs can be analyzed before a dog is euthanized. The dog in question, a Begian Malinois, is suspected in the death of a neighbor’s pet, a Pomeranian who was found dead on August 24th.
