PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A Multnomah County Circuit Court judge has ruled that a blind woman must give up ownership of her guide dog as it has bitten three strangers.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/Rn7EGC ) that last week Judge Thomas Ryan agreed that the hearings officer’s decision to remove the German shepherd mix “Noni” from Connie Walker’s home was correct.

Walker’s attorney said they will appeal the case to the Oregon Court of Appeals, and Ryan agreed to let Walker keep Noni until the appeals court rules. Until then, Noni must be muzzled while out in public or confined to the back of Walker’s home when caregivers or others visit.
