A dog whose owner ordered it to bite a police officer on the bottom is to be destroyed.
Bonnie the Rottweiler, who bit two officers a total of five times, was made the subject of a destruction order at Perth Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
Owner Martin Reeves was jailed for three months and banned from keeping any dog for the next two years after being found guilty of assault.
Reeves, who claimed his dog was a "harmless pup", had to be dragged to cells by two police officers and two G4S staff after a five-minute outburst against the sheriff.
Sheriff Eric Brown ruled that Bonnie, who is 16 months old, should be destroyed because she would continue to pose a danger to the public.
He said: "I am required to order destruction of the dog unless I am satisfied that the dog would not constitute a danger to public safety. I am not satisfied the dog will not constitute a danger to public safety and consequently I order the dog will be destroyed."
Sheriff Brown told Reeves, 52, that his claim that the dog was "harmless" was contradicted by her biting two officers who came to arrest his son, Martin junior.
SSPCA Chief Inspector Brian Cowing, 59, told the hearing that Bonnie was "aggressive" when he visited Reeves's home and that he feared for his safety.
Solicitor Paul Ralph, defending, said: "I have never had to represent one of our canine friends before but my submission is that the poor dog has never really been given a chance."
Bonnie, who was called Biscuit until her name was changed in response to people commenting on her good looks, according to Reeves, has been kept in kennels since her owner's arrest.
The court heard how Bonnie was following her master's orders when she bit PC Peter McAtamney on the bottom and then turned on his colleague.
The court was told that the dog managed to open a door on her own before biting PC Craig McLeod on the legs and arm and leaving him needing hospital treatment.
The officers had gone to the home of Reeves's son, also Martin, 24, to impose a spot fine upon him when a fracas broke out and the dog was told to attack.
The officers described how Reeves initially tried to calm his son, but when they started brawling with him he shouted at Bonnie to "get them".
Sheriff Eric Brown found Reeves, of Stanley Crescent, Perth, guilty of assaulting PCs Peter McAtamney and Craig McLeod by commanding Bonnie to attack them.
Reeves was also found guilty of being the owner of a dangerously out of control dog at John Law Court, Auchterarder, on February 3, whereby it repeatedly bit the officers to their injury.
Reeves jnr has previously been ordered to carry out 180 hours unpaid work after he admitted refusing to turn down music, and making sexual comments about police officers' families during the same incident.
