The dog had been living with Jody for five months when she received the letter. In it, she found out someone had seen her out walking the dog and filed a report. “In the letter, it said that there was a ban on what was perceived by the general public as dangerous dogs.” The fact that someone would perceive her dog as dangerous took Jody by surprise. She couldn’t take Brixley for a walk without getting stopped multiple times by people eager to shower the dog with affection. Her mind was spinning as she wondered who in a neighborhood of people she considered friends and amiable aquaintances, that cheerfully waved and came to pet her dog as she walked it down the street, could’ve done this. The letter stated that she would be fined 100 dollars a day until they got rid of their dog, and a lien would be placed on their property.
