If you want the full story, you can look at my journal entry titled "After Dealing With This Bitch For Three Years..." but for now I'll make a long story short. The other night my collie bit someone trying to break into my neighbor's house. She had a rabies shot and I'm not in trouble with animal control because she was protecting my neighbor's house but this afternoon an animal control officer came to my house and she informed me that, because my dog did bite someone then she may need to be quarantined. The would-be robber is going to have the prison doctor look at his leg tomorrow and determine if there is a danger of rabies.
I've never had to have a dog quarantined before and I know that the amount of time will be less because she's had her rabies shot but the animal control officer didn't know for sure how long it would be so I'm waiting to hear from the vet. Does anyone know how long I will have to quarantine her and how I'm supposed to do it? I can't keep her locked up and I don't have a fenced in yard and it will kill my little girl if the dog has to stay at the vet. Plus, I don't want to do that to my dog. They're even talking about quarantining my other dog, even though she didn't bite him. The collie bit him and they both chased him up the tree. They may order both of them quarantined, just to be safe.
