I have neighbor who does not comply with Georgia state law and allows their pit to play alone with their VERY young child. I'm not into confrontation so I figured I'd send him a letter. He's always been really courteous so I'm trying my best not to offend him or make him upset. He's one of the fear friendly neighbors and quite I have let. My letter below in replies.

*If you read my post and there are mistakes in my spelling or grammar please note that I never learned either in school and I am currently learning them now. If you see a mistake POLITELY point it out and I'll be more than happy to correct my mistake. Here's a fun little siggy for your enjoyment. *

Dear Neighbor,

Let me start off by saying, this letter is in no way meant to be harsh, rude, or condescending. I am simply writing you this to voice my concerns for the safety of the neighborhood.

You have always been kind and friendly and by far one of the most quiet and respectful members of our, sometimes crazy, community. You stick to yourself, are mindful of children playing in the street, ect. However, it has come to my attention that you have a large aggressive breed dog, which looks to be a pit, running loose. As you know there are many children in our neighborhood whom the dog could cross paths with, including your own very young child whom I observed playing, alone I assume, with the dog. I fear for their safety as well as the other animals that rom and play. Code: § 4-8-29. Unlawful acts by owner of a dangerous or vicious dog of  Georgia State law requires all breeds deemed dangerous are " muzzled and restrained by a leash not to exceed six feet in length and is under the immediate physical control of a person capable of preventing the dog from engaging any other human or animal" or be with "unattended with minors".

I completely understand these changes may take some time, however if April 17 passes and no changes are made I will be forced to alert authorities next time I see the pet without a muzzle and leash, roaming alone, or playing unattended with a minor. Violations of the previous laws come with a hefty fine and possible euthanization of the dog.

Thank you for your kindness and understanding my concern for the safety of our community. Your dog seems to be very fond of your child and does seem to be gentle with her, but I was just concerned for her safety as well as everyone in the community. Once again thank you so much for your kindness and consideration.

Ours too. I personally would never leave my child alone with any dog but I wouldn't write a letter of complaint to someone who did.

The dog can KILL my dog or worse my child. It IS my business.

Or you could just mind your own business. That would be my recommendation.

Any big dog can KILL your child or dog.
