We reported that two separate pieces of legislation had been proposed in Miami-Dade and would be voted on Tuesday night.
Officials chose to adopt Commissioner Diaz’s proposed ‘Dangerous Dog Registry’ last night. The new ordinance increases fines from $500 to $1000 and creates an on-line registry that will allow residents to identify dangerous dogs within their own communities, and permits police officers to take any dog it determines is vicious.
“This is all about being responsible for your animal. I don’t believe in bad dogs, I believe in bad owners,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Jose Diaz.
