A judge has decided that Chunk, known by his family as the sweetest pit bull on earth, can go home. That's according to a decision issued Tuesday in Town of Concord Court.

7 Eyewitness News first brought you his story last month , after Chunk bit a mail carrier. After the attack, a behaviorist from Behavior DVM recommended he be euthanized.

But, that decision was challenged and the dog was ordered to undergo an additional evaluation.

Even though Chunk can now go home, his owners must meet a list of court ordered mandates; including training, micro-chipping, the animal must also be neutered.
