Pit bull euthanized after animal shelter jailbreak

ALAMEDA, CA

The dog was found with its owner, /*Melissa Perry*/, in a Reno motel Thursday night. She and her boyfriend, /*Richard Cochran*/, are accused of breaking "Max" out of the shelter last Wednesday just hours before the dog was to be euthanized under a judge's order.

The pit bull was returned to the shelter on Saturday and the judge's order to put him down was carried out.
