Sak and Snickers: The reunion
The story is far from over — and there’s still a lawsuit to be resolved — but Snickers the pitbull is back for now in Aurelia, Iowa.
The dog, who helps former Chicago police officer Jim Sak cope with the effects of a stroke, was reunited with him Thursday after a two week absence.
Aurelia ordered Snickers out of town because of its ban against pit bulls, and after a city council vote to not make an exception to the rule for Sak.
Sak says, “He’s a part of me. This right side don’t work, but he does.”
A federal judge ruled that Sak can keep his dog in Aurelia until Sak’s lawsuit is decided.
