Ok, there is somewhat of a leash law in Morristown, it simply states you must have control of you animal.

So if your pet is in your yard, and goes outside your yard and attacks another dog, or person, you are responsible. So if you think you can control your dog, without a leash, and your willing to pay the piper so to speak, if your pet hurts another animal, or person, then by all means, don't use a leash or fence.

But the bottom line is, you are responsible for your pets. And any responsible pet owner, will have their pets on a leash, chain or fenced in yard, to ensure that their pets do not hurt another animal, or a human. At the same time, you want to protect your pets from people who are not smart enough to use a leash or fence. To ensure someone else's pets don't attack and hurt your pets.

It's a lil common sense.

The control law is just what it says you must be "in control"
Your dog does not have to be on a leash or restrained But!!!! you must be in control
And if your dog damages someones property or bites someone then you are responcible.
This is the wierd one If someone is tresspassing on your property or breaking into your house and your dog eats them up YOU are still responcible for your dogs actions.
Which means the person who was eaten could sue you in civil court.
Now what judge would rule in thier favor ? Well stranger things have happened.
But thats Tennessee for yea!

No offense Preggo, but if you have those dogs chained up in your yard most of the day then you are no better person than the person who is letting her dogs tresspass on your property.
First.. talk to that neighbor and let her know what you said here.
Second... Supervise your dogs when they are out in your yard so you can chase those other dogs out. Citronella spay works well to chase dogs off. Bring them in when they are done with their bussiness, or consider putting up a fence.
Third...Keep a journal of every occurence and keep calling the authorities and making a complaint.

i had a crackhead neighbor once who had a boxer. they lived across the highway from me. i let my dog out one morning and after about 15 mins, i went to get her back in, to my suprise her and the boxer were in the furtherest most corner of my yard fighting. when i got them broke up, my dog was covered in blood, she's solid white, i got her on the porch and told my wife to look her over, not a scratch was on her, i got the boxer and was looking at her, her upper lip was almost tore off, her right ear was just hanging by a piece of skin and all four of her legs were about chewed off, i took her over to the neighbors and told him what happened. two weeks later i got served to go to court to pay for the vet bill for the boxer. i countered sued for the days lost wages and the broken gate the boxer broke to get into my fenced in yard. i won because the man couldn't control his dog, the judge said that since his dog got off it's chain, crossed 11e, broke my gate, and i, unknowingly, no matter how aggressive towards other dogs my dog is, let my dog out into a fenced in yard and it attacked an intruder on her turf that shouldn't have been there, is not my fault and he had to pay for my lost days work, and fifty bucks for my gate.

Why would you keep a poor dog on chains? sounds like animal cruelty to me! And why would you even own a pit in the city? Oh, I know it's your right, well you are lucky to live here, in most major cities, you would get a stiff fine.

Dont judge the dog judge the owner.
It is not cruel to put a dog on a chain as long as it has a collar and it is checked from time to time
If it were cruel then it would be against the law
This is not a perfect society

YES let's just let those dogs RUN LOSE (Sandy) Then you can burn the phone up at the pound!!~!~~~ NOT everyone can afford a big chain link fence, But if you want to donate I'm sure there's a loy of people out there that will be more than happy to take you up on a new fence.

well even those of us who can not afford a big chain link fence have a love for our pets,and just because they are on a chain does not mean they are mistreated in any way as for owning a pitt i live here in the city and i own one he thinks he is a lap dog so why shouldn't i have him ,just because of his breed? well let me tell you if you take a long hard look at some of the people on here the dog is better mannered than a lot of them sooo should we kill people because they are dumb,or hateful,or just plain annoying???

You are confusing humans with animals. I know you are a great dog lover and that's a wonderful thing. And yes many animals are much more in control than people. But humans come first! I have seen the face of a little boy practically torn off by a pit, not a pretty sight. This passive pit was the darling of the neighborhood and just decided for some reason to attack the child. His owner was a responsible dog owner as well.You people just refuse to believe these dogs are dangerous. You like to tell how poodles can bite too! I have never seen a small dog do the damage to a person that these dogs can and often do. Their jaws are most powerful as you know and a person doesn't have a chance once they decide to attack. Much research has been done on the subject, and it is fact, there are a few breeds that attack more than others,that's why in many cities you cannot have these animals. Knoxville is considering the law now. I see dogs chained up in yards in this town all the time, I still believe it is animal cruelty. Just my opinion!

It's not that bad to chain them up or put them on a dog run, no worse than a shock collar or hidden fence, or even an electric fence, some ppl have to use an electric fence to keep them in a fenced in yard even.

If the pet is on a run or chain with a added link to keep the chain from getting tangled up, and a dog house for shelter and of course plenty of food and water. The owner is being very responsible. They are keeping their pets from running out in the roads, getting killed by cars...or destroying a neighbors property while they are gone to work. Nor letting them run loose and possibly harming another person's pets.

The control law comes back into play there, even while your away from home and at work, or whatever, the pet is still your responsibility.

Of course we could always put chains on cars and keep them from going anywhere, and possibly running over pets that are running loose?
