Dutch the dog, who's been receiving attention across the country, will be put down.
The decision was made in a Montrose court today.
It was an emotional start to Valentine's Day for the dog's owner, people in the courtroom, and even the victim who all shed tears for Dutch the dog.
What many people don't know is that Dutch, wasn't technically a service dog. He was however, declared one after the incident.
On November 14th, the victim, who remains anonymous, was taking care of Dutch, when he got in a fight with another dog.
She tried to break up the fight by pulling on their collars and hitting Dutch.
Dutch eventually "snapped"- biting the woman deeply on her butt, thigh, and hand before she was able to escape.
Both the victim and Dutch's owner, Jeremy Aguilar, had no comment after their appearance in court.
We did however, talk to animal lover Barbara Browner, who came to hear the fate of the animal.
"I was disappointed, on the other hand I can understand it, i think this dog could have been fine in the right situation, but how do you find the right situation? Emotions were running both ways."
Animal Services Supervisor Mike Duncan said, “The dog continued to bang on the door with his head to try to get some entry, probably to continue the attack."
The judge said during his ruling, the attack was prolonged, meaning that the dog continued to go after the victim.
While hundreds of thousands have read parts of this story, and signatures for the "Save Dutch the Service Dog" petition continue to pour in, Judge Brown said the internet version of the story is far from reality, and the victim's image as a cruel dog-hater isn't accurate.
Aguilar was sentenced to pay more than one thousand dollars in fines and serve two days in jail.
Although Dutch has been sentenced to be put down, the defense plans to file an appeal
