Dangerous dog hearing delayed

By From page A3 | April 04, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A court hearing on a dog designated as dangerous has been rescheduled for April 15.

Christian Armstrong, who lives on Arlington Circle, is appealing the designation for his 2-year-old pit bull Zanny.

A hearing set for Friday in Solano County Superior Court has been continued to later this month.

A Feb. 27 hearing took place at the Fairfield Police Department about the animal, subject of reports by neighbors who say the dog gets loose and poses a problem for residents. The dangerous dog designation came as a result of the February hearing.

The designation requires measures that include the animal’s confinement at the house on Arlington.

    Good to see finally something being done about dogs running loose. There's no excuse for that. If u dont have 100% control 100% of the time, you don't deserve a dog. Not just for the safety of the community but for the safety of then dog as well. unsupervised dogs cause traffic accidents, get ran over, eat things they shouldn't eat, contract mange.

    I agree, ZERO TOLERANCE, especially for this breed of dog. I'd like to know is this is the same Pit Bull owner that used to live in a corner property on Buena Vista, in Suisun that also had a Boxer, who despite warnings from animal control would let his Pit out in the LOW fenced FRONT yard, which nearly attacked by little buddy. I'd have crushed his skull with my baseball bat!!!!!! Thank goodness they moved, but I feel sorry for the area where they now reside.
