A Nashville judge has signed an amended order at a pit bull owner's request to have her pet transferred to an out-of-state facility after being in the care of Metro Animal Control for more than a year.
Prada, a four-year-old pit bull-boxer mix, has been in Metro's care since January 30, 2011 after accidentally getting loose.
Animal control officials picked Prada up after the dog allegedly attacked another.
Since then, city officials say Prada has attacked at total of five dogs, two of which were in Metro's custody.
Both dogs were destroyed.
Since the alleged incidents, Prada's owner Nicole Andree has maintained the stories are untrue and that her dog did not bite any dogs.
“If Prada had bit a human or scratched a human even or aggressively come after anybody, including a dog, it would have scared me to death,” she previously told Nashville's News 2. “I would have found a rescue right then, even if [Animal Control] would have given back the dog.”
Prada is scheduled to be transferred to Villalobos Rescue Center in New Orleans in the near future.
The dog will remain in the care of the facility for the remainder of her life.
