Toledo City Council approves new dog law


Toledo City Council Tuesday night approved a new Toledo law governing dogs and their owners.

The vote means that the city repealed its old "vicious dogs" law that targeted "pit bulls" and "pit bull" mixes. It will be replaced with a law intended to promote responsibility among dog owners and change the scopes of dogs considered to be dangerous.

The new law was written based on recommendations compiled by the Lucas County Dog Warden Advisory Committee at the request of Toledo Mayor Mike Bell in February.
