While the State of Ohio may have removed breed specific language in its vicious dog law, Archbold’s own ordinance retains rules about pit bulls. The Archbold ordinance does not ban the possession of pit bulls in the village outright, but it does require owners to purchase a liability insurance policy on the animals, and restricts how and where the animals may be kept.
In a town of fewer than 2000 households in a total area of 4.2 square miles, Village officials reject bringing change to their local ordinance.
