With great sadness and heavy hearts we wish to inform you that the Belfast City Council in Northern Ireland has officially given word that they have humanely put Lennox to sleep at 7 a.m. this morning, July 11, 2012.
On May 19th 2010, Lennox, a five year old American Bull dog Labrador cross was taken by the Belfast City Council Dog Wardens from his loving family home. Lennox committed no crime nor were there ever any complaints about him by the public. Lennox was seized by the authorities based on the fact that he looked like a Pitbull type. He was assessed to be a danger to the public and ordered to be put down.
Lennox has spent two years in an undisclosed location while his family and campaigners fought feverishly to save the now seven-year-old dog. But despite pleas from millions across the world and offers of help from Victoria Stilwell, host of Animal Planet’s It’s Me Or The Dog, to pay for Lennox to come live in the USA, the Belfast City Council was intent on putting Lennox to sleep.
