Burton considers toughing up its dangerous dog ordinance

Posted on November 7th, 2011 No Comments

Lawmakers in Burton are considering strengthening its city dog ordinance following what they say is an increased number of incidents involving dog attacks and threats.

Some are looking to Saginaw’s new dangerous dog ordinance as a guideline. The ordinance, which passed this June, mandates that owners of pit bulls, German Shepherds, presa canarios, bull mastiffs, and rottweilers must post signs on their home that read “Dog on Premises,” register their pet at the city clerk’s office, and keep the animals on a leash, in a kennel, or in an at least four-foot-high fenced enclosure.

The ordinance states that all animals must be on a leash, eight feet or shorter, held by someone capable of controlling either the dog or cat. No pets are allowed to run around unrestrained unless on the owner’s private property.

If you or someone you love has been attacked by an aggressive dog, contact the Michigan dangerous dog attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 1-877-PETBITE today.
