Dauphin County Dog Owner Violates PA Dog Law Again

Posted on: February 4th, 2013       Attorney Thomas Newell

On Jan. 29, 2013, a Dauphin County dog attack victim was put in a perilous situation by a negligent dog owner.  The defendant has recently been found guilty by District Justice Rebecca Jo Margerum for failing to confine his 3 boxers.  Despite his conviction, Clifford Schaffner refuses to follow the PA Dog Law.

BOXERS #4On this date, his 3 boxers were again running loose and unrestrained on his property.  A Federal Express worker tried to deliver a package and was walking up the defendant’s driveway.  The 3 boxers began to bark and came running down the driveway pursuing him.  The FedEx employee dropped the package on the driveway and fled the scene for his safety.  Unfortunately, this is the 3rd time the defendant’s unrestrained dogs have pursued a delivery person.

It is Attorney Newell’s hope that the Dauphin County Dog Warden and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture will prosecute this grossly negligent defendant to the fullest extent of the law.  For those dog bite victims looking to set up a free home consultation with Attorney Thomas J.
