Judge gives dog on death row a reprieve
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - April 17, 2012 (WPVI) -- The life of a Tennessee mutt who's been on doggy death row for more than a year has been spared by a judge following an outcry from animal lovers and the acceptance of a last-ditch proposal to keep the dog alive.
Now, Prada, the 4-year-old pit bull mix who inspired thousands of people from all over the world to sign a petition to save the dog's life, could be headed to Animal Planet fame.
Prada is moving to the Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans. The center is featured in Animal Planet's reality TV show "Pit Bulls and Parolees," which puts ex-convicts and abused dogs together so both man and animal can be rehabilitated.
Prada was declared vicious and ordered to be euthanized after attacking several dogs last year.
