Katelynn & Gang Posted May 6, 2009 Report Share Posted May 6, 2009 So I know a lot of us have dogs, probably 3 or more. I for one own three and my mother owns three. I've only recently just moved out over the last two or so years, leaving my dogs with her and taking them on and off when I can. Together, we have two 11 years old, a seven year old, two that are about five and a two year old. All six of these dogs have been through obedience and are well behaved. Four of the six do or have worked livestock in their lives. These dogs do everything or have; agility, flyball, rally, obedience, showmanship (4H) and as just stated for the four, work livestock. You can just walk into my mothers living room and see that there are trophies galore that both I and my sister have won with five out of the six dogs (one never did 4H). To add to our six, my mom usually has at least one rescue on and off. I'm always getting dogs dropped on my door step, so I usually have one to three fosters that live with me (not her) but we do go visit her. We were just recently (last week) notified that we are in violation of our cities limit on dogs, dogs that we've owned for years at the same house (all six dogs have lived their whole lives at this residents). We didn't know there was a limit until we received this in the mail with a request that we remove three of the six dogs. We have also never had any violations prior to this, no noise complains (one did come with the limit violation, of coarse), no dog bites, not a thing. I am just wondering if anyone else has had this happen and what they did. I have now heard of people battling with the city to keep their dogs but I am wondering if anyone has done it personally. Has anyone ever won this sort of battle? I by far am not getting rid of any of the dogs, none of them are in danger unless I suddenly have to move home, in which case I'd be calling my lawyer. They have all been there for five or more years (besides the two year old) and have always been licenses with the county with the same address without question or hesitation. I just do not see how they can just now say we are in violation when we were obviously five and two years ago and no one said a thing to us about dog limits as we registered with the county. Thanks.
