Harris County and City of Houston law enforcement have a poor history when it comes to protecting citizens from dangerous dogs. On multiple occasions, I have observed government officials not protecting citizens from aggressive dogs. In my own neighborhood in Spring, Texas, a loose dog charged pedestrians as they walked in front of its owner’s home. I called the Harris County Sheriff’s office on three or four different occasions to report the loose dog and its aggressive behavior. On the first few occasions, the officers failed to ticket the dog owner or have the dog picked up by animal control.
