NORFOLK, Va. – Police said ‘Charles the Monarch,’ the popular local dog was found roaming the streets Tuesday.
The dog was taken to the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center after a citizen saw the dog roaming.
Police said a seizure hearing will be held May 2 to determine if the owner, Daniel Painter, will be able to keep the dog.
Charles the Monarch has gotten attention the past not only for his lion-look but for Painter being in court.
This time last year a judge ruled that the dog needed to be on a leash when it is not with Painter.
