NORFOLK, Va (WAVY) – 10 On Your Side wants to keep you up to date with what’s happening with Norfolk’s beloved dog “Charles the Monarch.”

10 On Your Side learned today that Norfolk Animal control will keep the dog until a court date is set. Norfolk police confirmed that Charles’ owner,  Daniel Painter, met with an animal control official this morning.

Last week, 10 On Your Side spoke with a neighbor who picked up Charles when he saw the dog running in traffic. Animal control decided that since this is an ongoing problem, they would keep the dog in custody until the court date.

An officer will now go to a magistrate to obtain a summons then the date will be set.
