Tough dog law follows attacks
Middletown bans pit bulls
 
MIDDLETOWN, OHIO -
By Perry Schaible, Enquirer contributor
Thursday, May 12, 2005 - Newswire

MIDDLETOWN - Tracey Miller does not feel safe walking her 5-pound Maltese dog, Casper, in her neighborhood.

Her husband, Steven, and Casper were attacked last summer by a neighbor's two large dogs, one a pit bull mix. Casper received 20 puncture wounds that required surgery. Steven Miller was bitten on the buttocks, hands and chest.

"We live in constant fear that they will get out and attack us or Casper (again)," Miller wrote in an October statement to a Middletown judge.

She hopes a new ordinance that pertains to vicious and dangerous dogs, approved by City Council on May 3, prevents other residents from going through an ordeal like hers.

The ordinance bans new pit bulls. Current owners have until Friday to have their dogs registered under local and state law to be able to keep them. Pit bull owners also are required to provide the Middletown Police Department with documentation - by June 4 - that the dog has been micro-chipped for identification, along with photographs of the animal, and a name, home address and phone number.

The updated ordinance also sets up a process to designate a dog as vicious or dangerous; requires vicious dogs to be identified with a micro-chip within 30 days of the designation; limits a person to three "dangerous" dogs and no more than one "vicious" dog at a time; and requires owners to carry at least $100,000 in liability insurance.

The warmer weather added a sense of urgency to the City Council action.

"It's getting to summer, when people are outside and there are a lot of dogs out," said Craig Heimbuch, chief administrative assistant for the city.

Maj. Mark Hoffman of the Middletown Police Department said officials know of hundreds of pit bulls within city limits.

Brenda Matthews, Miller's mom, wants the city to be strict.

"Why should we have to be victims and not be able to walk in our own neighborhoods and be safe?" Matthews said.
