Laying down the (leash) law

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 13, 2007 09:15 AM


A Berlin couple has been ordered by the Board of Selectmen to keep their dog confined to their fenced in yard or on a leash following a hearing on the animalís aggressive behavior.

The board last week ordered William and Noella Dubois of Richard Drive keep their dog Max from roaming around town freely. Town Dog Officer Helen Roach has been advised to conduct unannounced compliance checks.

MaryAnn Aijala of Barnes Hill Road wrote the board a letter claiming Max attacked her dog Boots, several times over the past eight years. The most recent attack was in November; Boots has since died of causes unrelated to the attacks.
