Just three hours ago on Thursday, the entire family in a home on Norfolk Street in Lancaster, United Kingdom gathered around to welcome home their dog Darla. A Facebook post began and ended with the sweet words:
“Family is complete again.”
The Facebook page HELP Darla Get Home continues to be flooded with congratulatory comments from across the world.
“Sónia Gomes Lovely photo ,welcome back home Darla ,so happy for you,hugs from Portugal.”
In case anyone missed the heart-wrenching story of police removing an autistic little girl’s dog from her home last week, contending the pup was a pit bull-type dog banned in the country, Darla’s story continues to prove judging any dog because they have a square head and a squat type muscular body should be euthanized is ridiculous. And when the local police came to remove the Shar-Pei and Staffordshire Bull terrier from the home, young seven-year-old Maddison rushed into the bathroom with her dog to stop authorities from seizing her best canine friend. The adorable little blonde haired, blue-eyed child, with the heart of a giant, also suffers from ADHD, and Darla has played an important role in helping Maddison cope with her challenges.
On Wednesday, the announcement came that officials, the family’s lawyer and experts had reassessed the dog’s “DNA” determining Darla was not a pit bull type and thus not included on the Dangerous Dog List.
“Jenny Armer Thank you so much your support has been amazing I can’t stop crying; she’s fast asleep now comfy at home.”
One more thing … Jenny intends to frame the certificate that Darla is indeed welcomed home and will never be bothered again because of her “look.”
Welcome home Darla.
