The fate of Brindi the dog could be determined today.

A sentence hearing for Francesca Rogier, whose mixed-breed dog Brindi was seized by animal control two years ago, is scheduled for Dartmouth provincial court this morning beginning at 9:30 a.m.

Brindi was seized by animal-control officers in July 2008 and ordered destroyed after attacking other dogs. The five-year-old has been kept at a shelter run by the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Rogier was found guilty last month on three counts of violating an animal-control bylaw after her dog attacked another animal last July.

Judge Alanna Murphy will hear arguments from the Crown and Rogier before deciding how to proceed. She has several options to choose from, including having the dog put down.
