AURORA DOG IS NOT A WOLF, DNA TEST SAYS

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Tom McGhee

Tracy Ab­bato said DNA re­sults show her dog Capone is not part wolf, as Aurora An­i­mal Con­trol sus­pected.

“The re­sults came back neg­a­tive. Not an ounce of wolf,” Ab­bato told Den­ver7.

Aurora city spokesman Michael Bryant said he couldn’t com­ment be­cause it’s an on­go­ing le­gal case. Capone will re­main at the Aurora An­i­mal Shel­ter un­til a court can de­ter­mine whether he goes home.

The dog’s own­ers were charged with keep­ing a wild, ex­otic or dan­ger­ous an­i­mal, which was re­lated to sus­pi­cion the dog was a wolf hy­brid. They also face charges of keep­ing an ag­gres­sive or dan­ger­ous an­i­mal, al­low­ing him to roam at large, fail­ure to ob­tain an an­i­mal li­cense and fail­ing to make sure the dog had a ra­bies vac­cine. Tito Ser­rano, who co-owns the dog with Ab­bato, has pleaded not guilty, Bryant said.
