Wicca, a pitbull, is waiting to be put down at Montreal's Berger Blanc animal pound after she was accused of biting two people last month.
The order was made by a city administrator who never held a hearing.
Christos Papakosta, the dog's owner, received a ticket for each incident and his lawyer asked the judge for a ten-day reprieve to argue the fines, but a judge declined stating his hands were tied by previous rulings.
Papakosta said his dog only grazed the first person and the second has admitted he was not hurt during the incident.
He also said that the Quebec Superior Court judge refused to look at his version of the facts.
"No judge wanted to look at a police report that just says that my dog lunged at the paramedic and that I, the owner, pulled my dog back. The dog never bit. The dog never nipped him, like he says."
The defence's lawyer said she worries Wicca will be put down before the court has a chance to throw out the tickets and find the dog never bit anyone.
Papakosta said he even had Wicca evaluated by Sophie's Dog Adoption, an animal rescue group. The group said Wicca remained calm throughout the tests.
Sophie Fournier, owner of the adoption centre, said "most pitbulls, for people who know pitbulls, are the best. You can be banging on them, and doing all kinds of things and they just think it's a game."
An appeal on Wicca's sentencing has been rejected and the city's last hurdle before getting the dog euthanized was moved out of the way.
"The power of justice is unfair," said Papakosta. "It always favours the guilty. The guilty ones is the city of Montreal."
The owner now says the by-laws are unfair and that he hopes voters will keep Wicca in mind when casting ballots in November's municipal election.
