Dogs are known to bite others. One dog was ordered by a judge to be jailed and undergo anger management classes after biting.

A dog named "dangerous" on the Animal Planet program "It's me or the Dog!" has been cooling in a prison for dogs in Westchester, for biting a neighbour.

Casper, a 109-pound Presa Canario, was trapped in a shelter for six months, while his owner has fought to save his life, The owner is facing $80,000 in fines and threats of eviction for violation of the condo association's  no dog rule.

A Westchester County judge recently spared the dog's life, but not the testicles. In addition to ruling that Casper should be neutered, Greenburg Town Judge Walter Rivera also ordered the dog to see a "board certified animal behavior professional" and not be out in public without a muzzle.

"Not a bad dog. He does not deserve this," said the owner of the dog, Bram Leinwand, of Arsdley. He vowed to appeal the judge's ruling.

Leinwand and the dog trouble erupted after the dog and Leinwand son, Eric, appeared in "me or the dog." Show Host Victoria Stillwell called the dog "dangerous" and "a loaded gun at the end of the belt" in the episode that aired April 16, 2011.

In the program, a coach waved his stick at the dog in a threatening manner and the dog lunged at him after being released by Eric Leinwand, who bought the dog is now 3 years old.

After the show aired the Leinwands heard of their condo board, which required the family to get rid of the dog or face a $500 fine per day.

The board, which in 2009 gave the family permission to keep the dog, has placed a $45,000 lien on
 the home of the Leinwands and fines have now mounted to $80,000.

The situation went from bad to worse, when a visitor was bit by the dog in his arm in the condominium parking lot, across the man's jacket and pricked the skin.




The police seized the dog, who has been in a shelter in New Rochelle since then. The family comes to visit once a week.

He said he is willing to spend their last penny to get justice for the dog, but lamented: "This ultimately can be a death sentence."
