Unfortunately, if the dog was captured by animal control, my best guess is that it would end up being euthanized anyway considering its aggressiveness.
Yeah I called multiple times and they wouldn't do anything. This county was particularly lax even though they had a leash law.

Like I said, it wasn't easy. I was also nearly bitten a couple of times as well as several of my neighbors. The dog was getting more and more aggressive. The owner of the dog simply said we shouldn't walk in front of his house.
