Another case of a veteran with his service dog being denied entry at a restaurant has been reported. This time, it took place in Pittsburgh.
– A veteran and his service dog tried to dine at a restaurant.
– The restaurant owner asked them to leave.
– The veteran said he is…
According to the veteran, he owns a Dutch Shepherd and he was with his dog and another friend when they tried to enter the restaurant called The Huddle. Before getting inside, the owner of the restaurant already approached them and told them they cannot go inside the establishment with his service dog.
The veteran said that it was disappointing and hurtful because the dog is very important to him and he considers him his lifeline. The service dog also makes him feel safe because just like other veterans, he does not want to be alone whenever they are at a public place.
The dog was not wearing his service dog vest but was wearing his service dog collar. The owner did not bother asking documentation to prove that the doggo is a service dog. The owner of the restaurant released a statement saying that he made a mistake because service dogs always go to his restaurant. During the time that the veteran and the service dog were denied entry, the restaurant owner said that he was just really busy and did not realize that the doggo was a service dog.
