DENVER — A gray 75-pound pit bull is making Denver’s pit bull ban not so black and white.

Sky is a service dog for Army veteran Glenn Belcher. Belcher suffers from anxiety and a stress disorder from serving in the Gulf War. He uses Sky as his service dog.

“He’s my companion and he’s my best friend,” said Belcher. “I need help up and down stairs at times. He carries my medications for me.”

Sky wears a yellow vest with the words “Service Dog.” Other than that, you may not know he was anything but a pit bull.

“When I do walk him, I never walk him without his packs,” said Belcher.

Belcher moved to Denver from Palm Desert, Calif., where Sky was legally allowed in the city. Denver has banned pit bulls since 1989.
