Shadow returned to her Lake Country owners

Lake County couple Jennifer and Peter Madsen have agreed to conditions and have welcomed their dog Shadow back home.

The Regional District of Central Okanagan and the owners of the Alaskan malamute Shadow have agreed to a consent order that saw the dog returned to its owners late Friday afternoon, July 27.

To facilitate this, the consent order outlines a number of mutually acceptable conditions, including a program of rehabilitation and reintegration training for the two-year-old dog to help acclimatize her back into her owners’ home. “The agreement marks a positive step for both parties in resolving what has been a very difficult case.  It’s been an extremely emotional experience for everyone involved—the victim, the dog owners, regional district dog control staff and other professionals in the community,” said regional district board chairman Robert Hobson.

Shadow’s owners, Lake County couple Jennifer and Peter Madsen, said in a statement: “We are grateful for the cooperation of the regional district in working to resolve this matter and getting Shadow back with us. We’re very happy that she is home and will begin professional training to help with her adjustment.”

Last week, more than 100 supporters of the Madsens gathered at the regional district headquarters in Kelowna and walked into a regional district board meeting to show their support for the dog to be released back to the custody of her owners.

The malemute had been impounded at the district’s dog control kennel for the past 15 months after a complaint was filed against the dog, a matter that is now before the courts.

The court case is to determine which of two dogs bit a woman, causing severe injuries.
