I know that many of you live near or around this area.   What are the kennel 
clubs doing?   The GSD clubs around there?   You don't have to live in the 
town to write letters to inform your neighboring town about this.   GET 
INVOLVED!!!    We let the Staffies and the Dobies and other breeds get listed, 
and now, 
looky here............(read the list of proposed dangerous dogs below!!!

Read the proposed ordinances. THe meeting it TOMORROW...get somebody 
there...get lots of bodies there!!

Sec. 6-21. Keeping and harboring defined.   Any person who shall allow any 
dog or cat to remain or to lodge or to be fed within his   home, store, yard, 
enclosure or place shall be deemed and considered as keeping and   harboring 
such dog or cat within the meaning of this article.     


Although the Task Force made unanimous recommendations on many issues 
relating to   dogs, the Task Force did not reach consensus on whether BSL 
should or 
should not be   incorporated into the Cityâ??s existing ordinances.   It is 
very 
important to note that the Task   Force does not endorse or recommend any of 
the ordinance options, which are described   in detail below.     

For many years, the Dangerous Dog ordinance has imposed a higher   standard 
on owners of certain breeds of dogs to know if/when their   dogs are dangerous. 
  The list of breeds has remained the same since   the adoption of the higher 
standard; however, the Task Force   unanimously decided to amend the listed 
breeds of dogs to include   newer breeds of dogs that are of a similar size and 
nature to the listed   breeds.   The new additions are as follows:    
Argentine Dogo, Cane   Corso, Dogue de Bordeaux, Fila Brasileiro, Perro de 
Preso 
Canario,   and German Shepherd.   

More specifically, the ordinance adds new section (b) to Section 6-22.   It 
requires dogs of   the listed breeds to be leashed (as specified), muzzled, and 
properly confined in the   specifically described outdoor pen or dog-run or 
indoors.  The purpose of this provision   is to protect the public from the 
breeds of dogs that, due to their physical characteristics   or breed 
disposition, may pose an additional threat to the public, requiring additional  
 
confinement provisions to prevent them from being at-large.   Many of these 
dogs are   
capable of scaling tall fences or otherwise escaping the normal level of 
confinement.    

In addition to these changes, the Task Force discussed whether an â??
anti-tetheringâ??   provision should be added to the ordinance.   An 
anti-tethering 
ordinance puts restrictions   on an ownerâ??s ability to chain/tie a dog to 
prevent 
the dog from running at-large. 

The full list.
(1)   American Pit Bull Terrier;   (2)   American Staffordshire Terrier;   
(3)   Argentine Dogo;   (4)   Cane Corso;   (5)   Chow;   (6)   Dogue de 
Bordeaux;   (7)   Doberman Pinscher;   (8)   Fila Brasileiro;   (9)   German 
Shepherd;   (10)   Perro de Presa Canario;   (11)   Rottweiler;   (12)   
Staffordshire 
Bull Terrier;   (13)   Any dog, whether purebred or mix, that has the 
appearance and characteristics   of any one of the breeds listed in subsections 
(1) 
through (14).
