A drug-sniffing dog in Canada is in detention for now.
He was supposed to start his drug-sniffing job at a high school this fall, but instead, he is hanging out in his kennel while he waits for a decision on his fate.
A parent of a high school student with severe pet allergies has asked the Yukon Supreme Court to ban the dog from the school. She said her daughter will have to drop out of school because the patrolling dog will trigger her allergies.
Earlier this week, the judge put the case on hold after the school offered to keep the drug dog in his kennel for a week while the lawyers for the family and the school meet with a mediator.
The family’s attorney said the mother wants to work out an agreement as long as the dog is banned from the school in the meantime. If a deal is not worked out by September 28, the attorneys will go to court to ask for a decision by October 1 to ban the dog or allow the dog to be able to go to school.
