The trial for Peter Bower has been rescheduled for November 23, 2011.
Ohio resident, Peter Bower advertised his services as a dog walker and pet sitter. He was arrested and charged with having sex with three dogs and maybe a horse.

On May 27, the man entered an INNOCENT plea and is charged with ONLY TWO MISDEMEANOR COUNTS of animal cruelty for the rape of the innocent dog.

The postings date back to 2006. A book found a bestiality book, "Dearest Pet," along with signs that read 'Pets Welcomed' and a plastic, blow-up sheep. Bower was arrested at his Mansfield workplace May 18 and charged with injuring animals, a second-degree misdemeanor, and companion animal prohibitions, a first-degree misdemeanor.
