S.A. veteran says service dog was kicked out of store, harassed [View all]

Source: KENS 5

SAN ANTONIO Local dog lovers are stepping forward to defend a veteran who was allegedly kicked out of a business and ridiculed for having a service dog.

...

Hanauer is just one of the local dog lovers rallying support for Adan Gallegos, who says he and his dog Botoz were kicked out of Billy Bob's Beds on Tezel Road. He was allegedly told to take off his wounded warriors shirt and to go occupy Wall Street, instead.

...

Gallegos is taking his case to federal court. Hanauer and Beck said they hope it can bring positive attention to service dogs, showing just how much veterans can rely on their best friends.

Attorneys representing Billy Bob's Beds issued the following statement:

"Mr. Gholson and his employees honor the military service of Mr. Gallegos and all veterans and active duty personnel. Billy Bob (BB) regrets the way things occurred and the misunderstanding between Mr. Gallegos and BB."
