No cage matches for this dog

Posted by Ralph Ranalli June 5, 2007 10:26 AM


Phineas, an Airedale Terrier owned by Brant Viner and Margaret Harling of West Street, attacked a beagle mix named Junior who lives up the street for the third time in March of this year, Northborough Dog Officer Claudia McGuire said.

Phineas' owners have been ordered by the Board of Selectmen to install a high fence or an enclosed dog pen that will keep the animal contained.

Junior, owned by Sandy Lin, suffered puncture wounds to his front legs twice.

Selectmen ordered Phineas’ owners to install a chain link or stockade fencing that surrounds their property or a six foot high dog pen with a roof and floor.

If Phineas gets out again he will be in violation of selectmen’s order and his owners will be issued a $25 to $100 fine and will go back before the board, McGuire said.
