Puppies From Home of Dogs in Attack Going to Texas

LAPEER, Mich. (AP) -- Eight puppies from the home of two dogs that fatally mauled a Michigan jogger will be sterilized and taken to a Texas shelter.
The Flint Journal reports the cane corso puppies are going to Austin-based Cane Corso Rescue Inc. Elizabeth Sawyers-Robles, a director of Cane Corso Rescue, says the puppies seem to have a good temperament. She'll be overseeing them.
The puppies have been in the custody of the Lapeer Animal Control Shelter. The two cane corsos involved in the July 23 attack on 46-year-old Craig Sytsma of Livonia in Metamora Township were earlier euthanized along with another adult dog from the home.
Forty-four-year-old Valbona Lucaj and her 45-year-old husband Sebastiano Quagliata are charged with second-degree murder.
A hearing to determine if the case goes to trial is Friday.
