The owner shall maintain proof of the inspection.
There is a lot of controversy about breed-specific legislation, many differing opinions. In Longmont there are no breed specific laws in place. All dogs have the potential to run at large, be a nuisance or even bite. It is up to the owner to control their animal and be a responsible pet owner. Longmont animal laws are designed to enforce that they do. Longmont Animal Control is a strong advocator for responsible pet ownership no matter what the breed of animal.
