Jeb has been the faithful companion of Kenneth Job, an Air Force Veteran who has a disease that makes it difficult for him to stand, and Jeb has been trained to assist Kenneth.
Jeb's family knew that he couldn't have killed the neighbors dog.. he lives with other dogs, cats, and even chickens, and had never hurt any of them nor shown any signs of aggression towards them..
But he was seen standing over the Pom's body the morning he was killed, so the neighbors naturally assumed it was Jeb who had attacked their dog.
After the judge ruled that Jeb would be put down, his family asked if they could do DNA testing.
The results proved he was innocent..
