Unfair laws on dogs

Jan 16, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Star Online

I ALWAYS presumed that one's own home was one's castle. Obviously, I was wrong. Now I read that to own a pet dog, I need my neighbour's permission 'Dog owners in Nilai must now get neighbour's permission' . I ...

<quoted text>That's funny.:) A friend of mine has a similar issue with his German Shepard. He is retired and lives in the country. The dog has a 600 acre farm that she has all to herself. When he leaves, she will follow his truck out of the "holler" so he puts her in a large outdoor kennel. I must say that I have never known a dog who could chew through a chain link kennel until I met "Heidi". LOL
lol i can believe it! i use wildlife fencing, and mine would snip through it with her teeth no problems until one day i hooked up a car battery and charged the fence. she hasn't done that since, but digging underneath it is her pet escape method now. my fence boundary looks like a rock garden in arizona. my saving grace is i never taught her to jump.

i find this story a bit odd. even for a dog to be taken away from its owners for "roaming", if its proved to be non-aggressive, the dog will usually be adopted out to another family unless the breed its self is banned in that area. but if every dog that was found running around was put down, there would be no place for a lot of us to adopt our dogs from.

while i am sorry for your loss, as the death of a pet is always troublesome, i do think the story is missing something that if included i'm sure would at least make sense. whether fair, i dunno, but at least make sense.

judging from others responses i have read, i am not the only one who finds this story a bit fishy.

As long as their are people who are willing to use their prima donna status to get back at people through corruption in the local legal systems, it is very possible that people's pets will become innocent pawns in people's vendettas against one another.

I would suspect that there may have been a problem involving the dog either annoying the neighbors with its barking , or having shown aggression toward the neighbor when it observed the other neighbor's hostility to its owner. It is also possible that the dog was an innocent victim of a neighbor's vindictiveness. I do not doubt for a minute that the charges were trumped up. You will be surprised at what miscarriges of justice can happen at the local and county governments in the more rural counties of Florida.

While it is true that dogs are labeled as cruel for attacking an individual, there also needs to be more rights for animals defending themselves. I own a dog that attacked an individual who forced their hand down the throat of my dog to remove a piece of food. First off the dog could have felt that it was being choked or that it was defending what was his. The reason why a dog attacked an individual should be addressed not just that the dog attacked an individual. The dog can be defending itself, reacting towards neglect and abuse, and if it defends itself on just one occasion can be labeled as cruel.
