New Here...Question on Dog Law

1522 Views 13 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  csauce30
I'm new here (I'm not in law nor am I a police officer) I appologise for invading your board! But I don't who else to ask this question and hoped maybe someone here would know. I belong to a German Shepherd board and one of the topics is about "Beware of Dog" signs. Does anyone know what the law is on these signs in MA?

Some people are saying having this sign is a liability. That it could be taken as an admission that your dog is dangerous. I was always under the impression that having this sing was to protect the homeowner in the sense if someone is stupid enough to enter my yard after reading the sign it is out my hands should my dog decide to bite. (my GS puppy wouldn't bite he's 10 months old but my last GS definately would not have let anyone in my house if he didn't know them or if I wasn't there to tell him it was ok).

Thanks for any input on this!

Sign or no sign, one thing I am aware of when it comes to certain breeds as household pets, your home insurance may be higher. I don't think it will make you anymore prone to lawsuits because some people put them in front of their homes to deter burglars and tresspassers when they don't even have a dog.
FIRST of all, HE is a SHE... and there are TWO she's, and they are both terrifying and ferocious! Don't let their innocent looks fool you!

n1k1ta, thank you, they are quite the spoiled brats. Remember the Dr. Seuss book, "Hop on Pop"? Well, I'm Pop... they do they same thing to me... I guess they somehow mistake me for a trampoline.


Everywhere I go with Rosie people scream at her, "Yo quiero Taco Bell!"
"Hey, poochie... want some tacos?"
"Gimme the chalupa! Where's the chalupa?"

The poor little thing... she's a victim of Mexican stereotyping...
