A dog that attacked two Chattanooga police cars has been sentenced to obedience and canine good citizen classes.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported Winston, a mixed-breed, will also have to wear a tag that says he is “potentially dangerous.” The newspaper said a judge ruled Thursday that charges against the Winston’s owner will be dismissed if the classes are successfully completed.
Owner Nancy Emerling had been given a citation for Winston being a “potentially dangerous dog.”
Emerling previously said Winston got out of a fenced-in area at a welding shop March 14.
By the time staffers from McKamey Animal Care and Adoption Center captured Winston, he had chewed two tires and the entire front bumper off a patrol car.
