Chino the Staffordshire bull terrier vindicated in Clare Dowse’s trial

A dog accused of being dangerously out of control in his own home and biting a police officer has been exonerated in a trial at Wood Green Crown Court. In an unusually factual complicated case, the jury unanimously acquitted Chino's owner of any omission which had led to his dog being dangerously out of control and biting the officer. Chino is now to be released from the police kennels, where he has been residing since November 2016.

Clare Dowse was instructed by Anthony Branley and Rumit Shah of Galbraith Branley
