Padi was sentenced to death but then something happened. Padi was freed. Check out Padi's story here! Let us know what you think! Padi, Dr. Paul Gartenberg's dog was sentenced to death after biting a child on the ear in Dr. Gartenberg's office. Watch and see what happened to Padi and how he escaped the death sentence. Dr. Paul and Padi were separated for 11 weeks during this whole ordeal. They are back together now and all is well. I am amazed at what the judge said about the incident and the rules for Padi's release.
