What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
I've recently been charged with a dog at large charge. My dog is a pit bull and very well behaved. The person filing charges is my next door neighbor and has no proof of my dog being so called "at large" I keep my dog in the house and in the backyard. Every once in awhile I'll let him go out front to use the bathroom but he never leaves the front yard and I stand watch over him. What I'm wondering is if he has no proof besides saying my dog runs loose or a neighbor agreeing with him.
Is this enough to be found guilty of the charge?
And if he has only eye witness accounts and no hard evidence can I get neighbors also to sign a petition or even show up for the court date to say otherwise?
What can I do to defend myself is what I'm asking. My dog doesn't run the streets and I know this but what do I need to prove this?
Thanks for this forum. Wish I knew about this along time ago.
