Appeal dropped for dangerous dog designation in Fairfield

By From page A6 | April 16, 2014

FAIRFIELD — The court appeal over a dangerous dog designation for the 2-year-old pit bull Zanny has been dropped and the matter resolved, an attorney for the city of Fairfield says.

Toussaint Bailey said Tuesday in Solano County Superior Court that the brother of dog owner Christian Armstrong said the appeal filed after a Feb. 27 hearing at the Fairfield Police Department designating the dog as dangerous would be dropped.

Judge Scott Kays dismissed the appeal.

Bailey said concerns about conditions that are part of the designation spurred the appeal because Christian Armstrong believed he had to build a shelter to confine Zanny. But Armstrong will keep the animal in the house and confined to a leash when outside, the attorney said.

A neighbor along Arlington Circle who raised concerns about the pit bull agreed to the arrangement if the conditions are met, Bailey said.

    nothing scarier than walking down your neighborhood and seeing a pitbull lurch at you since the owner can't control it. Nothing says lowered property values and "distressed community" like a pit bull and chain link fences.
