A judge agreed to vacate an original plea, which ordered the dog to be put down.

Since then, that law has changed as a direct result of this case. Republican State Senator James Tedisco stepped in, there was talk about a possible pardon from the governor.

Under the agreement, Luna had to be spayed and microchipped. Her owner also agreed to keep Luna leashed and muzzled when out in public for the next two years.
