Retired Chicago cop reunited with service dog in Iowa

December 28, 2011 (CHICAGO)

Days after Jim Sak moved to Aurelia, Iowa, to be near his ailing mother, a meter reader reported Sak and his wife to city officials because their dog looked like a pit bull. Aurelia has a ban on all pit bulls.

Snickers is a service dog. Sak suffered a stroke in 2008 and counts on his pet to keep him safe.

He sued the town to get his dog back and won.

Wednesday, Snickers was back home with his family.
