They arrested someone over an unlicensed dog? I hope there is more to the story, If not Faifax is way out of line

Jon, the law is the law and I agree that there is probably a history here of complaints. Both the County and the state have many codes about dogs due to the fact that over history dogs and their owners have not always been good residents.
