This family dog with sunnies could be 'seized, destroyed' for barking

A Council-issued warrant to ‘seize and destroy’ Sandy, the Banwell family’s beloved pet dog, over a neighbour’s noise complaints sent Fiona into shock.

She quickly bundled Sandy into a car to take her to a safe hiding place and jumped on to Change.org, starting her petition to ‘Save Sandy’.

“I only expected 100 signatures”, says Fiona. But overwhelmingly, over 47,000 signatures have already signed to urgently halt the Council’s plans.

The floods of public support has made Sandy a local celebrity, making national news headlines:

But Sandy is not yet safe - currently ‘in hiding’ in temporary accommodation until she’s clear from the Council’s threats.
