North Adams Committee Orders Dangerous Dogs Put Down

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Monday's Public Safety Committee hearing was a hybrid with some members and witnesses in City Hall and others participating remotely.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Safety Committee on Monday voted to euthanize two dogs deemed to be dangers to the community. A third dog has been given a chance for rehoming, if possible. 
 
The reluctant vote came after a two-hour hearing at which testimony was taken about the dogs' general aggressive actions and attacks on visitors at the owners' home on Northern Lights Avenue. The city's Animal Control Officer Carrie Loholdt and Building Inspector William Meranti also testified. 
 
Three dogs from the same family were the subject of the hearing to determine whether they were dangerous and, if so, what would be their disposition. The committee was assisted by attorney Gregg Corbo of KP Law, the city solicitor. 
 
Corbo summed up the testimony given on Pretty Boy, Piglet and Crook that included attacks on people who had been invited to enter the family's home. There were at least three incidents, two in February and one in June.
