Ah. This is why we have the handy little "quote" people know you're referring to something posted 18 pages ago...

Wow! Thanks Renee. I really don't know what I would have done had they come knocking on my door. It's definitely something to think about should this situation ever arise.

Usually when people DON"T follow these rules they are the ones who end up with every single dog and pup taken and destroyed. It has happened too many times.

Ephesians 4:31-32
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.

Unfortunately I've experienced this first hand while house setting my friends dog. Even though it wasn't my dog, having an animal control officer come to the house still sent chills down my spine. I would wish this kind of a visit to anyone.

I live in a very small town,we have one animal control officer. Nice guy. He came out when Oscar bit Vinnie. He told me and the police officer that there would be no citation because Oscar was secured at the time of the bite etc. The police officer decided to go "all vigilante" and is charging me with owning a dangerous dog. The animal control officer called me to give me a "heads up". The local police are trying to bully me into giving the dog up, the officer said if Oscar is "gone" in 2 weeks he will not charge me. He keeps saying Oscar is a pitbull.( I also own a pitbull, but Oscar is a mastiff,so that's like mistaking a palmeranian for a chow) This same officer has shot 4 pitbulls without cause, which is why a law suite was filed and part of the settlement agreement was that the local police department had to hire a seperate animal control officer,which they did and he is a great guy,but apparently if he doesn't do HIS JOB, the way the local police want it done, they step in and file their own charges. I am more afraid of our local police,they think they can do whatever they want.

You may want to have a safe place ready for Oscar -- with someone who won't give him up. You might also want to talk directly to the DA -- carefully. It's up to the DA to press charges, not the cop.

You might also consider filing a formal complaint against the cop if he persists.

I had an AC officer come out to my place once. They asked if I had a dog, I just said, that's really none of your business is it? I got the stink eye over that comment and I asked them to leave and not come back unless they had a warrant. I did get a letter later advising me that I legally need to have a dog license (which I do for a different county).
The government has no business knowing how many tvs I own, what I listen to on the radio, and so long as I'm not bugging my neighbors any other piece of property that is in my house. Read your local laws and see what rights AC in your area actually has.
