Attack dogs in neighborhood
Are people in Berkeley allowed to have dogs specifically trained to attack people? Someone recently moved into the neighborhood with several very menacing dogs. They are fenced and there are warning signs saying that they will attack. I walked by the sidewalk the other day and a Doberman flew at the fence barking at me which scared the daylights out of me. I no longer walk by with my kids because I’m scared the dogs would kill us if the gate were left open.
Are people allowed to have these attack dogs? Are there any requirements for how they are kept? (Interested in preventative rules not post-bite documentation.) I grew up with dogs and like them quite a bit, but I also value feeling safe in my neighborhood and walking on city sidewalks.
