Custody battle over Katrina dog (1:29)

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- It looks like the custody battle over Buster, a German shepherd dog mix who survived Katrina, is over.

The Colorado Animal Rescue Center says it will give the dog back to Sue Schmidt of Silt, who had rescued the abandoned dog in October.

The center subsequently took the dog away from Schmidt after it bit a shelter employee. That triggered a battle over the dog's fate.

The center this week said it would send Buster to a Texas shelter, near where the dog's owners moved after losing their New Orleans home.

But Angelo Kingvalsky, who owns the dog with his mother, said he wanted the dog to stay with Schmidt until the family could get back on its feet.

So the dog is going to the ppl who originally owned him? And they are giving them to the woman who found and adopted him until the Katrina victims of that family can get on their feet?
