See What Dutch the Service Dog Has Been Up to Since We Saved Him

See What Dutch the Service Dog Has Been Up to Since We Saved Him

This year, Care2 members helped save a dog named Dutch because someone started a petition on Care2.

Dutch was going to be euthanized because he bit a woman who was beating him with a pole. But then someone started a petition to save him, and more than 300,000 Care2 members signed it, and together they saved Dutch.

At the end of every year, we think back on the campaigns Care2 members have started and won. When we thought about Dutch, we were just itching to know what he’s been up to since we rescued him — so we sent a message to Dutch’s mom, Heather Aguilar, and she gave us the scoop. Warning: this update contains super cute photos of Dutch.

Dutch was thrilled to get out of court

so he could play with his new friend Sam

and go shopping for treats.

Shop 'til you drop, Dutch!

When he returned home, Dutch felt like a real celebrity when he got treated to a photo shoot

Work the camera, Dutch!

but Dutch didn’t let his newfound celebrity stop him from the important work of guarding the backyard from squirrels.

Constant vigilance, Dutch!

Now, Dutch is excited to become a big brother! Here he is snuggling with Mom, Dad and his little sis to be:

These happy moments only happened because people in the Care2 community fought to save Dutch. You can make a heartwarming victory like this come true, too. Just click here to start your own petition today.

Thank goodness this beautiful dog was saved. How terrible that because this animal was defending itself that MURDERING him was even considered.

Good to see that Dutch is now living a regular life with a backyard, a dog buddie, and a family to care for him and be his friend.
