article imageBrindi the dog seized from owner for second time

East Chezzetcook - Brindi, a dog who came closed to being euthanized in 2008 because of aggressive behaviour with other dogs, has been seized from her owner in Nova Scotia for a second time. The shepherd mix is accused of attacking a neighbour’s dog two weeks ago.
Brindi was adopted by Francesca Rogier in 2007, after living in a shelter for two years. The six-year-old dog had been placed under a muzzle after confrontations with other dogs, but in July 2008 she got loose from her home in East Chezzetcook and bit another dog.
She was seized by Halifax bylaw officers and scheduled to be put down, but Rogier had the euthanization order quashed and began a long and expensive legal battle to get the animal back. The story made headlines and many people wrote letters in support of sparing the dog's life.
She was able to take Brindi back home in August, after both she and the dog took part in training.
Judge Alanna Murphy ruled that the dog was to be muzzled if she was not inside a fenced-in area, and warned that the animal would probably be put to death if she was involved in another attack.
About two weeks ago Brindi was accused of attacking a neighbour’s beagle-Labrador cross.
CBC News reported that, on Monday afternoon, two RCMP officers and an animal control officer seized the dog at her home, about 35 kilometres from Halifax.
The news agency stated that Rogier said she wanted to hide Brindi from the officers, but could not find a place to conceal her.
Brindi has not attacked any people.
