The Wilmington Kennel Club and local dog owners report that the proposed breed-specific ordinance in New Castle County was defeated 11-2 yesterday. The council is now working to establish a task force to come up with effective measures to address the county's problems with loose dogs and irresponsible owners. AKC looks forward to working with legislators, fanciers and residents to formulate sound, enforceable, non-discriminatory laws to govern dog ownership. Thank you to all the concerned dog owners who contributed to this effort.
