The Sanders family from Missouri stood by their dog - a big yellow lab- for a 16 month fight that ended with the judge declaring their dog not guilty of a dog bite that would have led to his death. The mayor of Salem had declared the dog should be euthanized. A lawyer from Salem Missouri Joe Simon help them achieve their goal. Not too many people would have stood by their dog this long to make sure he was not wrongfully put to death. Joe Simon was able to prove that the mark on the child's face could not have come from a dog as big as Phineas. Now they must move because their kids no longer feel safe in school and they are receiving threats of harm.
