MONTROSE, Colo.—Authorities in Montrose are trying to find a veteran's service dog that was ordered euthanized after attacking a caretaker.

Jeremiah Aguilar ignored a judge's order and never turned Dutch in to Montrose Animal Control after he was ordered to hand him over last week.

Montrose Animal Control officials say Aguilar left his dog in the care of its former owner while he was out. Animal control officers say the woman was trying to break up a fight between Dutch and another dog when Dutch bit her.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel ( http://tinyurl.com/b35gpvw), an attorney for Aguilar did not return a phone call seeking comment.
