Sky News:- Thousands of people have called for a London council not to put down a stray dog that has a “loving home waiting for her”.
Ellie, a mongrel, was found emaciated after she ran into the Docklands Equestrian Stables in Beckton, Newham, on 14 February.
Stables manager Terry Minns contacted Newham Council’s warden service and spent the night feeding the hungry animal, the Evening Standard reported.
A warden collected Ellie the next day and Mrs Minns said she would give the dog a home if no one claimed her.
The council later informed Mrs Minns that Ellie was a “dangerous” breed and would be euthanised.
The stables manager hired a lawyer who has taken out an emergency order in the High Court twice to stop the council putting Ellie down.
