There should be a law that if a citizen of Ortonville lets his or her dog run lose and it is picked up by the police more than three times that person should not be allowed to have their dog back. I love animals very much and when I see someone who doesn't care enough about their pets to protect them by keeping them on a leash or in a kennel when they are outside I get very upset. Don't they know what can happen to their pets, they could get hit by a car if they run in the street and killed. I hope the city of Ortonville's city councit will pass a law to protect the dogs of owners who are so careless with their dog's live, if they want to keep their dog safe then wake-up and protect them, they can't do it for themself you as their owner are responsible for that. I live on 3rd St and there is one pet owner who is a neighbor of mine whose dog is always on my yard, I have a dog in a kennel who if it got ahold of it might kill it not because my dog is mean, which it isn't, he is a very gentle golden retriever lab puppy and they are big at five months old, but my dog is 20 times larger than his dog, I should not be responsible for his dog too, please dog owners keep you're dogs where they belong safe in iii you're own yard. There are a lot of good dog owners here in Ortonville who love their dogs very much, it would be wonderful if they all did. I hope there are more citizens of Ortonville who feel the same way I do and that we as caring dog owners will make sure that there is a new ordinance passed here in Ortonville to protect these unprotected dogs.
