We keep the dogs under 20# because we insist that they be inside dogs. Tony is right - most large dogs end up getting chained outside. We also don’t allow fences of any type, so putting them in a pen is not an option.
We had three large dogs when we came here. Two were pit bulls and had to leave, which we blamed on our insurance company. They were both outside all the time. The third was in a pen in the back of the park, and we let that one stay until we were working down there one day and saw it was in terrible shape. We called Animal Control immediately, who came and took it away. They did not give her a citation, which would have meant eviction from the park. Her excuse for the poor shape of the animal was she could not afford to take it to the vet.
Animal control here are policemen, and the main one in charge of animals has become a friend through our church. Jim just spoke with him today about the dogs coming to visit from the next park over, and asked him to monitor the situation, which he will do. It is really tough when park rules don’t allow large dogs or loose dogs and they are running around here anyway!
