Portland’s Dangerous and Potentially Dangerous Dogs Program

Portland_Portland’s Dangerous and Potentially Dangerous Dogs ProgramPortland is a part of Multnomah County in the state of Oregon. Multnomah County has created a dangerous and potentially dangerous dogs program. This program was created in order to identify dogs in the community that require extra precautions in order to keep everyone safe. If you or a loved one has been injured by a dangerous dog, call the Portland dog bite attorneys of Parke Gordon Law Firm for a free consultation about your case. The goal of the dangerous and potentially dangerous dogs program is to reduce the number of adverse events such as dog bites.

How are Dangerous Dogs Identified?

Portland’s dangerous and potentially dangerous dog program identifies dangerous dogs based on reported behaviors and incidents. The level of dangerous dogs ranges from level 1 to level 4.

A level 1 potentially dangerous dog has been found at large (one the loose) and displays aggressive behaviors. A level 4 potentially dangerous dog is one who has bitten a person or killed another animal.

A dangerous dog classification is the most serious.

Classified as Potentially Dangerous

The owner of a dangerous or potentially dangerous dog must abide by certain restrictions and guidelines. Detailed instructions will be given to such owners regarding restrictions. An animal service officer will ensure the owner is meeting all the requirements.

Can a Dog be Removed from the Dangerous or Potentially Dangerous List?

A dog that shows no further dangerous behaviors or viciousness may be removed from the list after a specified amount of time has passed. For example, a level 1 and 2 potentially dangerous dog that has not had an incident for a year can be removed from the list. A level 3 or 4 dog would need to be free of any vicious behaviors for two years. There is also a declassification fee to remove the dog from the list.

A dangerous dog that has committed a serious offense cannot qualify for declassification.
