    The Vermont Supreme Court has ruled in a custody case involving an 11-year-old dog.

    The court on Friday agreed with a lower court assigning ownership of the German wirehaired pointer to the husband.

    The court said the only issue in the contested divorce was which spouse should receive Belle.

    The husband is a veterinarian who takes the dog to work while the wife spends time walking the dog in the woods and caring for the animal.

    The wife appealed to the Supreme Court saying the court erred by not considering giving the dog to both spouses in a joint arrangement.
