Did you call Animal Control? I'm sure the Sheriff's Dept. has enough on their plate without being bothered by a few nuisance dogs.

There is no leash law in the county but when i called animal control and gave them the owner of the dogs name amd phone number they called them and gave them the opportunity to contain their dog to their yard or they would come pick up the dog. Animal control said to call back if i have anymore problems.

No, there is no leash law in the county, just in the city. I hope you get your problem worked out.:)

In the city, yes. In the county, no. :( Most people take matters into their own hands in the county.

A subcommittee of the Greene County Commission's Animal Control Committee voted Tuesday afternoon to give greater authority to County Animal Control Director Eddie Key to enforce the county's leash law. The vote by the subcommittee, which includes commissioners on the committee plus pet-rescue activists and others in favor of a spay-and-neuter ordinance, followed another contentious meeting pitting hunters opposed to a new spay-and-neuter law against those in favor of such a law. The Animal Control Committee and subcommittee, meeting jointly, also voted to direct the Greene County Commission's Insurance Committee to investigate the possibility of having volunteers assist Key in his duties as the county's main animal control officer.

People in this part of Tennessee don't do laws. You are correct.

There is a leash law Greene county!!! All you have to do is go to the courthouse and take a warrant for the person who is letting their dogs run loose and terrorize your neighborhood. They will be arrested...yes arrested...handcuffed and all! They will have to pay a 500.00 bond to get outta jail! Then you go to court and tell the judge! It may be beneficial to you to nform them of this before going through the hassle of missing work and being in court Hope this helped.

What? Are you even speaking English? Grass nuts? Waffel house? Are you on the salts? Before you try to troll somebody, make sure you don't look like a total fool next time. There's my advice for you.

There absolutely is a leash law in Greene county. I know this for a fact! Years ago my contained dog got loose and attacked my neighbors goat. I was arrested, handcuffed and taken to jail right in front of my small children at the time. I had to pay a $500 bond, court costs and damages. For the most part, the laws doesn't care if your dog runs loose until it causes damages but you should always contain your animals for their own safety so the answer to your question is YES, there absolutely is a LEASH LAW in GREENE COUNTY! Hope this helps.
