German Shepherd Escapes Yard, But Officers Claim Hes Part Wolf And Refuse To Give Him Back

Pet owners know that their beloved furry and feathery animals each have a very distinct personality. It’s true that some dogs, for example, can be more vocal than others, the same way some can be a little more aggressive.

One family was devastated when they learned that their German shepherd had to be a taken away and isolated when he was believed to be a wolf hybrid.

The Abatto family’s 10-year-old pup, Capone, jumped over their yard fence. When animal control picked him up, they refused to give him back to the family because they claimed that he displayed wolf-like characteristics. He was deemed to be “aggressive” and was placed in a shelter, as hybrids are not allowed in Aurora, Colorado, wherethe Abattoslive.

Over the following five weeks, DNA tests were completed, and much to the relief of the family, Capone was allowed to return back home!

There were some stipulations, however: a judge ordered that Capone must go through some behavior modification training, and the Abattos must install a six-foot fence, high enough to prevent him from jumping over it.

Of course, what matters the most to the Abattosis that their beloved Capone, a member of the family for the past 10 years, is back home again!
