Nevada high court to determine fate of Onion the dog

The Nevada Supreme Court is ordering oral arguments to determine the fate of a dog that fatally attacked a toddler last year.

An order filed Wednesday requests that a clerk schedule a hearing before all seven justices.

The filing is the latest in the legal fight over Onion, a 120-pound mastiff-Rhodesian mix that killed his owner’s grandson at the 1-year-old boy’s birthday party in April 2012.

Onion’s owner gave up the dog, but The Lexus Project rescue group intervened in hopes of sending Onion to a Colorado sanctuary. Onion’s owner later said she wanted the group to have the dog.

A lower court ruled the city of Henderson could euthanize Onion, but the Lexus Project appealed.

Onion remains in a Henderson animal control facility.
