Dangerous Dog "Label"

We have a question for a Council member about the duration or length of time a dog has been Deemed Dangerous (Health and Safety Code Chapter 822 Subchapter D).  I think, but don’t know for sure, most everyone assumes this is until the death of the animal.


Have you ever heard of any Jurisdictions that after a period of time would either review the status or repeal the determination?

I explained the standard appeal process the owner has when a determination was made.


Please respond to Aaron at:



If you could share this question with the collective group, thanks.
