Dogs In Household

In terms of written legislation, there are no specific laws in regards to how many dogs can be within a particular household at a given time. However, the interpretation of how many dogs are allowed in a household is open to interpretation. Often times, the law will take the position in terms of how a dog in a particular household is being provided for. A person that has only one dog may not property provide for the dog while a person with many dogs keeps his/her dogs healthy and provides for them accordingly.

Another aspect to consider is the recent attention that dog fighting in the area has garnered. This has led to Breed Specific Legislation, which affects dog owners that may have pit bulls and bully breeds in their household. These kinds of dogs are most commonly associated with the illegal dog fighting rings, and thus, will limit the type of dog in a particular household.
