A judge in Thurston County, Washington, on Wednesday voided a Lewis County euthanasia order and ordered that Hank be released to his adoptive family in Centralia, Washington. 

Though witnesses said the pit bull that killed the livestock was not Hank, a Lewis County judge ruled Hank a dangerous dog and directed he be put down.

Hank's owners have been fighting in court for five months and finally won on Wednesday.

“It feels wonderful! It's like I can't tell you how great it is,” Hank’s owner, Jann Propp-Estimo, told KIRO.

The family said they planned on spoiling Hank.
