Siberian Husky Plagued by Dangerous Dog Label 8 Years After Duck Chasing Incident

Eight years ago, a Siberian Husky in Texas chased a duck into a pond. A neighbor complained to the city of Plano, and to this day Sasha continues to live under court imposed restrictions reserved for truly dangerous dogs. Owner Chris Dunne is frustrated, and intends to file a lawsuit against the city to clear Saha’s name and have the dangerous label discarded.

Dunne says his dog poses no danger, and he’s complied with the city’s extra requirements, which include the posting of signs at his house warning of a dangerous dog. “They know the dog’s not dangerous, she was caught chasing a duck.” Sasha greeted a stranger at her house Wednesday with gentle sniffs and kisses. But the circular, orange tag on her collar labels her as dangerous and requires an immediate call to 911 call if she is found loose. She’s one of only seven dogs in Plano deemed dangerous by the city. Dunne says he still can’t believe it. “It’s a gross injustice.”
