Service Dog Sent to the Kennel

AURELIA, Iowa (AP) - A retired police officer is suing a northwest Iowa city after his service dog was banned because of aordinance against pit bulls.
      Jim Sak, a former
Chicago police officer, suffered a stroke in 2008 that left him
with limited use of his right hand and leg.
     Sak moved to Aurelia last month to be with his ailing mother.
But Snickers, a pit bull mix that's certified as a service dog for
Sak, was forced to be put in a kennel.
     Sak has filed a lawsuit against the city claiming Snickers is
cleared by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
     A hearing on the suit is scheduled for next week in federal court in Sioux City.
