I work in a boarding kennel (in Michigan) and I got a disturbing call today. The man was very upset; his Border Collie nipped the neighbor's kid (leaving a small bruise) and they called the police, who called animal control and they took his dog away! They brought him to the local pound and said he has to stay for 10 days even though he is fully up to date on his shots!? The man was wondering if he could convince animal control to release the dog to us, because the pound is notorious for housing sick and flea-infested dogs, he is worried about his dog's health! I told him that yes we would take his dog and he was going to call animal control and get back with us tonight. I felt so bad for him and I was kind of mad at myself because I know nothing about the law when it comes to matters such as this, or what a dog owners rights are. I wanted to help this man more than I did, he so obvious loved his dog and was just sick about the incident. Does that sound right to you? I know laws vary from state to state and country to country, but to take someone's dog for 10 days - just for a nip?
