PA Dog Warden Declines to Press Charges

Posted on: June 29th, 2012       Attorney Thomas Newell

On April 20, 2012, Attorney Thomas J. Newell was contacted by a Northampton County dog owner who was quite dismayed over a decision made by Kathy Andrews.  Even though 1 of his German Shepherds had been injured after being attacked by an unrestrained collie, the Northampton County Dog Warden decided not to charge the defendant dog owner with violating the Pa Dog Law, most particularly failing to confine his dog.
