Update!!! Thank you so much for all your support! We cannot believe how many people showed up to support Benson on such short notice. 
The hearing today resulted in a continuance. The city was unprepared to present their case as they didn’t even know about the hearing until this morning. I still don’t understand why and how it was scheduled for the day after Christmas.

We now have a date-1/28/19 to set a new trial date, because the first judge had to recuse herself because of a conflict of interest.

We are upset that this is continuing with Benson remaining in the county shelter. We are trying to see if there are any other options to get him moved to a better environment for the duration of the trial.

Unfortunately the City and County continue to struggle with communication which has made this process unnecessarily drawn out for all parties involved.

The positive we are taking away from this morning’s outcome is that it will give us all more time to bring attention to Benson’s case and the problems with the law here in the city of Goleta.

We appreciate all of you more than you know and need your continued support as we fight to save Benson! Together we can save Benson and help be the motivation change the laws in the City of Goleta and make it a more dog friendly town.

I also hope everyone knows I want to reach out to you individually and have long discussions on how you can help but I can't reach everyone as much as i would like and I hope this post answers questions about today.

The best way you can help is keep sharing the story and the petition. Tune into @me yt3kcoy12 KEYT tonight to see what they post-I’ll share it if I see it first. And show up for our TBD court date in the future.

Here is a video of Benson, the dog that @cityofgoleta and @countyofsb deemed a “dangerous dog” and have condemned to death. @benny_andthecats #savebenson .
THANK YOU, everyone who signed and shared Benson’s petition!! ❤️🙏🏼 Please keep sharing, as Benson’s court date for an appeal has not been scheduled yet. And if you would, please tag @cesarsway in your Stories and Posts and Tweets –– perhaps we can get him to be an expert witness at Benson’s appeal. .
IMHO, Benson had an unfair and biased hearing based on a vindictive and misleading account and headed up by city council members who don’t know the first thing about animal behavior. I think we all hope that the petition/signatures and appeal saves Benson’s life, but also brings about change in the inhumane, irrational policies established by Animal Services of @countyofsb. If all the veterinarians, dog trainers, groomers, shelter/rescue dog handlers and pet owners reported all the nips and bites they’ve ever received, Santa Barbara County would have to euthanize a lot pets!! I have known a lot of people who have been bitten by a dog, including myself. It is an upsetting experience, but most heal with their humanity intact. I follow a woman (on IG) who had to have 75 stitches on her face after being attacked by a dog. She didn’t fly into hysteria and fight to have the dog be PTS (💉), she advocated for the dog and continues to advocate for rescue dogs. She is a brave and beautiful human being and an unconditional dog-lover. 🐾 .
🔺For those concerned about Benson wearing a prong collar ... when used properly a prong collar is a gentle reminder, but you have to learn how to walk a dog on leash without tension. You tap the leash, never popping or pulling, and the prong collar applies equal pressure around the neck to remind the dog to slow down. Benson’s humans had several sessions with @theroemethod so they know how to use a prong collar. Also, Benson is 80 lbs and his mama is tiny (and pregnant at the time). Also @robertcabral has a video demonstrating the proper use of a prong collar. #repost @blkatk9 with @get_repost ・・・ Here is a video of Benson, the dog that @cityofgoleta and @countyofsb deemed a “dangerous dog” and have condemned to death. @benny_andthecats #savebenson .
