Per Guernsey County Commissioners, any pit bull or pit mix shall be euthanized immediately (within 24 hours for owner surrender, after 3 days for strays). NO EXCEPTIONS!!!".
Ohio is the only state that labels a type of dog as "vicious" and therefore requires that owners abide by all of the regulations affecting vicious dogs regardless of their dog's behavior. These requirements include confining the dog in a locked pen, restraining it on a chain link leash or tether, and purchasing $100,000 liability insurance policy.
