The struggle over the fate of a valley dog that killed a 1-year-old boy continues. "Onion" was set to be euthanized after the deadly mauling more than two weeks ago.
On Wednesday, the boy's family signed over ownership of the dog to the New York-based Lexus Project.
However, the city of Henderson still has Onion, and he could still be euthanized.
The Lexus Project said the following in a statement obtained by FOX5:
In response to the issues raised by the judge at the hearing on May 11, 2012, Elizabeth Keller, with her son, Christopher, present, signed over ownership of Onion to the Lexus Project, Inc. in order that the Lexus Project might arrange for Onion to live out his days with people who will care for him and treat him well at the sanctuary rather than being killed, scared and alone, at the hands of Henderson Animal Control.
