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.

Quill

Quill is a male American Staffordshire Terrier puppy who is available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society Inc. in Greensboro, GA.

Baby Groot

Baby Groot is a male American Staffordshire Terrier puppy who is available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society Inc. in Greensboro, GA.

Baby Groot and his brother were rescued from Walton County Animal Control on May 2 after being turned in as strays. They are both loving and playful fellas just looking for a family to cherish them. Since nothing is known about either parent, we can’t say with any certainty what the adult size will be or what they may be mixed with.

Baby Groot is currently suffering from rickets due to poor nutrition but with proper care and nourishment, he should fully recover.

Tirzah and Malah

Tirzah (right, female) and Mahlah (left, female) are female Border Collie and Corgi mix puppies who are available for adoption from Circle of Friends Animal Society Inc. in Greensboro, GA.

These precious sisters were seen being pushed out of a truck on a rural road. COFAS rescued them from Walton AC the same day. They are about 3 months old, 12 lbs., sweet and happy as can be and are looking for their forever homes.

BettyOF

Betty is a young female Labrador Retriever and German Shepherd mix who is available for adoption from Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue in Waynesboro, GA.

Betty was rescued by law enforcement in rural Georgia after she and her two puppies were found subsisting in criminal conditions. Her puppies have been adopted but Betty waits. Despite the treatment she received at the hands of humans, she is incredibly gentle and loving. She is great with people, kids and other dogs. When she was rescued, she had heart worms and has since been treated. Betty is a survivor and she deserves to survive even longer – in the loving arms of a good, compassionate person of her very own.

PatsyOF

Patsy is a young female American Bulldog mix who is available for adoption from Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue in Waynesboro, GA.

Patsy is a deserving young female American Bulldog mix. She was the victim of criminal neglect for the first 8 months of her life. Law enforcement rescued her and charged her owner. She came into foster the summer of 2015 where she lives with other dogs. She is shy at first, but once she warms up, she is gregarious.

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.

CodyOF

Cody is a young male Pit Bull Terrier and Hound mix who is available for adoption from Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue in Waynesboro, GA.

Cody is a very sweet young boy who was recently found at a dumpster in Burke County, Ga. He was easily rescued and has been a most grateful dog. Cody gets along with young kids and loves to be a couch pup. He is just the sweetest and would make a wonderful attention to any family.
