Pam Bondi and the St. Bernard.

By Emily Nipps for St. Petersburg Times

TAMPA — Before she became the Republican nominee for Florida attorney general, Pam Bondi was a familiar face as a legal analyst on CNN and the Fox News Channel.

But Bondi may be best known for a custody battle over a Saint Bernard.

Her 16-month fight with the Louisiana family who lost the dog after Hurricane Katrina played out on CNN, Fox News and the pages of People magazine. As a Hillsborough prosecutor at the time, she accused the family of neglecting the dog. Steve and Dorreen Couture and their two grandchildren wanted their dog back and resented Bondi for keeping him.

Both sides settled the case just before it went to trial. The terms were confidential, but reports at the time said Bondi offered to provide the Saint Bernard food and medication for life and to visit occasionally. The Coutures said they would keep in touch and send photos.
