Choosing a Dog – Is Change Coming?

I’m Ed Smith, a Roseville Dog Bite attorney. I have been handling dog bite and attack cases and helping injured parties recover for many years. During this time, I have been able to observe and study many factors which contribute to the potential for personal injury in general and dog bites in particular. Past articles have highlighted potential sources for dogs as pets, citing the value of local breeders and pet adoption/rescue organizations. Recent legislative activity has brought this subject into the news once again, as the governor may soon sign into law AB 485, considered by many third parties to be an example for other states to emulate. If passed, the new bill will require California pet stores to source their animals from shelters.
