Lennox has made international news and received outpourings of support. The Barnes family of Belfast, have been working to prevent their pet from being destroyed. Court ruled that the dog was dangerous and would need to be put down.
The Barnes family, however, maintains that their pet is not a threat and has never hurt anyone. Further, the family maintains that Lennox is not a banned Pit bull breed, but is rather an American bulldog cross.
County Court Judge Henry Rodgers refused an application for a last-ditch appeal last week because he believes that Caroline Barnes, Lennox’s owner, along with her legal team, “had not established a point of law on which to make one.”
