6.20.090 Provided a dog has not attacked and bitten a person or another animal, the animal control officer shall not seize or impound a dog for violation of this chapter requiring a dog to be leashed or issue citations for violation of this chapter when the dog has not strayed from and is upon private property owned by the dog owner or the person who has a right to control the dog, or upon private property to which the dog owner or person who has a right to control the dog has a right of possession. A dog that has strayed from but then returned to the private property of his or her owner or the person who has a right to control the dog shall not be seized or impounded, but in such a case, a citation may be issued; provided, however, that if in such a situation the owner or person who has a right to control the dog is not home, the dog may be impounded as specified by law. The animal control officer shall post a notice of such impounding on the front door of the living unit of the owner or person who has a right to control the dog. Such notice shall state the following: that the dog has been impounded, where the dog is being held, the name, address, and telephone number of the agency or person to be contacted regarding release of the dog, and an indication of the ultimate disposition of the dog if no action to regain it is taken within a specified period of time by its owner or by the person who has a right to control the dog.
