NYC PUBLIC HOUSING AND DOGS

Dog owners living in public housing are glad that the New York City Housing Authority has withdrawn its list of breeds that are banned. But a group that advocates for public housing residents still wants NYCHA to consult with tenants on a policy to keep vicious dogs out of city housing developments. NYCHA notified tenants on Nov. 1 that it had withdrawn its unpopular pet policy that banned Dobermans, Rottweilers, pit bulls and any dog exceeding 25 pounds at maturity. The three banned breeds had been whittled down from a list of 26 that included Boston terriers.The new dog rules published Nov. 1 echo the previous pet policy: Dogs that exceed 40 pounds at maturity are banned, but there is no ban on any specific breed, said Sheila Stainback, a NYCHA spokesperson. Dog owners are still required to register their animals with the authority and the rules remain in effect until Jan. 31, 2010.
