Chicago TV judge to hear 5-legged puppy case

CHICAGO (AP) - The case of a puppy that used to have five legs and was saved from a Coney Island animal show is going before a court TV judge in Chicago.

Plaintiff John Strong operates a New York animal show that features disfigured animals. He's suing the dog's original owner, Calvin Owensby, for $4,000.

Strong says Owensby reneged on an agreement to sell him the animal for $3,000. Owensby says they didn't sign a contract.

Owensby sold the Chihuahua-terrier mix to a North Carolina woman who wanted to keep the pooch out of the animal show. She's had the dog's fifth leg removed.

Former New York district attorney Jeanine Pirro's show is being taped Wednesday. It will air on Sept. 21.

Strong says if he wins the case, he plans to fight in court to reclaim the dog.

    For the past few years, officer involved shootings have led to unprecedented protests. Backlash and violence at times have been so severe, some police said it made them hesitate or even avoid some actions on the job. It's called the Ferguson effect - a reference to the Missouri town where an officer shot Michael Brown in 2014.
