Please contact the Clive city officials and politely and respectfully encourage them to pursue a non-breed specific dangerous dog law that holds owners of any dog that harms accountable. City council contacts below article. ~ Jodi

Change in dog ordinance gets first approval

A Clive ordinance that singles out three breeds of dog as vicious could change next month amid concerns that it would not withstand a legal challenge, city officials said last week.

Similar versions of the ordinance - which deems pit bull terriers, American pit bull terriers and American Staffordshire terriers vicious - have been struck down by courts in other parts of the country because they target specific breeds, City Manager Dennis Henderson said.

The new proposal, approved 3-0 by the council, restricts any dangerous dog that attacks or threatens a person. A dangerous dog must remain locked in a pen or kennel or leashed, and any dog that attacks a person could be captured and possibly euthanized by the city. It also requires owners to have liability insurance of at least $100,000.

The change is nearly identical to measures under consideration by Des Moines and other suburbs in an effort to create uniform dog control rules in the metro area.

Clive's new ordinance must pass two more council votes before taking effect, Henderson said.
