Dog awaiting euthanasia disappears from animal shelter

IONIA, Mich. - A dog that was ordered to be euthanized has disappeared from the Ionia County Animal Shelter.

A judge ordered three dogs, Major, Mario and Luigi, to be put down after they got loose and killed a farmer's goat.  The dogs' owners have been fighting to save them.

But, Major has disappeared from the animal shelter.  The dog went missing sometime between last Thursday and Friday morning.

The couple tells FOX 17 they had nothing to do with taking the dog, but take some solace that Major is alive out there somewhere, instead of awaiting death at the shelter.
