Dangerous Dog Ordinance Benefitting Saginaw, MI Residents

Posted on November 13th, 2012 No Comments

In June 2011, Saginaw, Michigan officials created a dangerous dog ordinance in order to outline a set of rules for owners of dog breeds that are deemed dangerous. Since the implementation of this ordinance, the number of dog attacks in Saginaw has declined.

The ordinance states that dog owners with dogs that are classified as dangerous have to register their canines with the city. If these owners choose not to register their dogs, they face fines and punishments from the government. So far in the city of Saginaw, 882 dogs have been registered. Other rules stipulated in the ordinance for these dog owners include posting a “Dog on Premises” sign in the yard, keeping the dog on a leash when it is outdoors, or having the dog enclosed with a fence that is at least four feet tall at all times. 

Dogs that are considered dangerous include pit bulls, rottweilers, German shepherds, and bull mastiffs. The Chief Inspector for the city has said that U.S. Postal Service workers are appreciative of the signs in the yards, as it makes their jobs safer when they are in those areas. A slight decrease in 911 calls referring to dog attacks has also been reported in the city since the ordinance was put in place.

If you or someone you know was attacked by a dangerous dog, you need experienced representation on your side to fight for the compensation you deserve. Please contact the dog bite lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. by calling 877-738-2483 today.
