Officials in Canton Township (MI) (Population 76,000) unanimously repealed the breed-specific provisions of its vicious dog law.
The changes came after two residents in the community appealed to the Board of Trustees on behalf of their dog Loki -- a dog believed to be a pit bull/American Bull Dog mix.
Superviosr Phil LaJoy said the revised ordinance defines a vicious dog "based on the actions of the animal rather than due to a perceived predisposition."
The Board of Trustees is scheduled to make a 2nd and final vote on the new ordinance next week.
Congrats to the great folks in Canton Township for supporting the logical change.
