Hi - could someone point me in the right direction to find out if there is a leash law in Royersford/Limerick? I looked on the township sites and didn't see a lot of info. I was charged by a dog that wasn't on a leash while I was out walking and the owner acted like it was MY fault. For what? Walking on the sidewalk? I carry pepper spray with me and had it out and was ready to use it when the owner finally decided to come get their dog away from me.

I love dogs, and cats, but I have been bitten before while walking and will not put up with it again.

Thanks for the information!

PA has what's called the dangerous dog law. inform the owner of this then next time, get a pic of the dog off leash & the owner & call the cops.
worst case scenario is the owner will be forced to put the dog down.

Thanks Alvin - I will do that next time, I carry my phone so that will be easy. The owner kept saying that it was a 'nice dog'. Yeah, how the heck am I supposed to know that when it is charging me and barking? I hope that people will read this and understand that others don't know if your dog is 'nice' or not - I will protect myself if I feel threatened by a dog.
