Golden Retriever euthanized after killing owner

FRIENDSWOOD — A golden retriever, one of two dogs seized by authorities after the March 17 mauling death of owner Pamela Rushing, must be put to death — probably today, according to a settlement agreement reached Wednesday evening between Rushings family and the city.
The other dog, an Australian shepherd, will be designated a dangerous animal and must be registered with the city, segregated, neutered, placed in a florescent collar or harness, be covered by $100,000 public liability insurance and always have a dangerous dog sign posted nearby, the agreement states.
The shepherd should be released to Bendel Rushing, the victims husband, within the next 48 hours, an official said.
