Plantation Florida may require microchips for aggressive dogs

Looking to rein in out-of-control pets, the Plantation City Council is considering embedding a microchip in any dog classified as aggressive and requiring them to attend obedience training.

The city also may expand the definition to include dogs that approach people in a “menacing fashion.” The city first crafted a law on aggressive dogs in 2006. It spells out penalties and requires that dogs labeled aggressive be registered with the Police Department and confined at all times.

Since then, the City Attorney’s Office said two dogs were voluntarily removed by their owners and another two forced out. Councilwoman Diane Veltri Bendekovic said the numbers may be slightly higher.

Owners “need to have their animals under control because every resident has the right to walk our streets,” Bendekovic said. “I don’t blame the animals, I blame the irresponsible owner.”
