Gwinnett County Police K-9 Draco notched another win against an alleged criminal, this time in court.

Dog bites man. Man sues dog. Dog wins.

The dog was Draco, a prized member of the Gwinnett County Police Department’s K-9 unit. But on July 6, 2013, Draco bit the arm of burglary suspect Randall Kevin Jones, who later claimed the dog clamped down for what “seemed like a lifetime.”

When a federal judge rejected Gwinnett’s initial attempt to dismiss the lawsuit, the county appealed. On Friday, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta threw out the case against Draco.

“We hold that a dog may not be sued individually for negligence since a dog is not a ‘person,’” Judge Robin Rosenbaum wrote for a unanimous three-judge panel. Georgia law, she noted, does not allow such claims to be litigated against dogs.

The mere notion of allowing a lawsuit against a dog raises abundant practical issues, Rosenbaum added. How would you formally serve the lawsuit on a dog? What about the dog’s retention of legal representation? How can a dog be expected to pay damages?

I believe the accepted method for serving a lawsuit on a dog involves the lawyer peeing on the dog’s lawn.

Patsy has also been working with a professional behaviorist to help her learn to trust human beings. Her capacity for love is enormous. She is a goofball, wanting nothing more than to plop her bowling ball body down into your lap or to wiggle her butt around town on leash. She loves to walk. She is a survivor and she deserves happily every after.

am a yellow lab mix who is full of wiggles and bounces with a puppy-like charm that will instantly make you smile! I enjoy going for walks and would love a big yard to romp around in. I absolutely LOVE other doggies and would enjoy having a doggy friend in the home with me.

I am ready to be out and active, whether it be a run around the block or ball time in the yard. I enjoy meeting new people, including kids over 8! I don’t mind younger ones, but my puppy like charm tends to be too much for them. I am quite the entertainer and my funny antics are sure to make you laugh. Though I need to learn some of the basics, I am a quick learner and eager to gain more knowledge!
