    Puyallup OKs new dog rules
    Published: December 10th, 2008 12:05 AM

    The Puyallup City Council amended the city’s animal control ordinance Tuesday night, adding a way to classify dogs as “dangerous†and give officials the authority to seize and euthanize them.

    The new rules require that dangerous dogs, defined as ones that severely injure a human or another animal, be securely penned on private property to prevent their escape. The dogs must also be muzzled if they are out in public.

    If a dog is deemed dangerous because it kills a human, city officials will seize and destroy
    the animal.

    The city also upped required safety precautions for potentially dangerous dogs, requiring them to be secured and muzzled just like dangerous dogs. Potentially dangerous dogs are defined as ones that bite or threaten a person without provocation.

    Puyallup’s new animal control rules are nearly identical to ones the Sumner City Council passed last week. Metro Animal Control handles animal control in both cities, and officials said they wanted the agency to have consistent rules to enforce in both jurisdictions.

    Starting this month, a permit to own a potentially dangerous dog in Puyallup and Sumner will be $250 with an annual renewal cost of $50. A permit for a dangerous dog will cost $500 with a renewal fee of $100.
