An Orcutt family is fighting to keep their dogs from being euthanized, and is now trying to change a county ordinance on aggressive dogs. The family has an online petition spreading their message on the internet in an effort to get the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's attention.
Peggy Henning remembers the day her family welcomed Daisy and Duke into their family like it was yesterday.
"They immediately just became part of the family," said Henning. "They were very friendly with all the guests we had coming over."
But things changed when Daisy and Duke got loose. They liked chasing cats.
"Dogs are pack animals and that is their default instinct," said Henning. "If they are bonded or litter mates, it intensifies that. They would get out of the confines of our house or yard and this instinct would come to the surface."
