SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - A judge has reversed his earlier order to put down a dog that Orange County animal control officials concluded is part wolf and deemed vicious.

Judge Corey S. Cramin ruled Wednesday that the dog, Karma, will be sent to a sanctuary for wolf-dog hybrids in North Carolina.

Karma has been the subject of extensive public discussion and the county Board of Supervisors recently held a special meeting about her fate.

The dog killed at least one cat in an Anaheim neighborhood in 2012. It was impounded in May when its owners were arrested on an unrelated matter. After determining it has wolf ancestry, animal control authorities said it could not be properly vaccinate against rabies.

Christine Garcia, an attorney for the owners, contends that Karma is a purebred Siberian husky.
