LAS VEGAS (AP) - The fate of a family dog that killed a Henderson toddler won't be known for months as the Nevada Supreme Court considers arguments on whether a nonprofit rescue group can take the dog to a sanctuary in Colorado.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the 120-pound mastiff-Rhodesian mixed breed named Onion is being kept in two large connected cages at the Henderson Animal Control and Care Facility.

The dog has been there since April 27 following the deadly attack on Jeremiah Eskew-Skahan on his first birthday at his grandmother's home. The dog's owner gave it up to be destroyed but the New York-based Lexus Project wants to intervene.

Justices in June stayed any action against the dog until they review the case.

The first legal briefs are due Sept. 24.
