SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Buddy the dog has been released to a veterinarian.

The dog had been in Animal Care Services since November after a girl said the dog attacked her at a local apartment.

A judge ruled in December the dog should be euthanized.

Lawyers for Buddy's owners filed a temporary restraining order while an appeal on the decision is pursued.

The dog was released to a veterinarian and the city said it will continue to discuss a possible resolution with the owner of the dog.

The city also said the move is to ensure public safety pending an appeal by the dog's owner.
