I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Can you explain more about what is happening?
I completely understand your frustration with the officer, but it's important to remember that he may try to take your dog from you if you don't cooperate. He most likely wants to meet at your home because that's where the dog is. Unless you can bring your dog to work with you, meeting at your office or sending a letter isn't helpful. He wants to see how your dog reacts to strangers and if he appears to pose a threat, plus if he's got adequate food and water when he's chained outside.
Any statute that was passed AFTER this happened couldn't apply to your dog. I'm looking at the La Quinta County Code, though, and the dog bite statutes were passed in 2005. So I'm not sure what new law he's talking about. You may want to ask him to provide a citation or a statute, because based on what you've said, you followed the laws in place.
I apologize. I typically do not work on the weekends.
I'm sorry to hear that your dog was taken away. What questions do you have about this?
I understand that this is very serious. Unfortunately, that takes it outside the scope of this site. JustAnswer experts are not able to represent customers or provide specific legal advice. Document review is a premium service that requires an increased fee, so I did not undertake that task without an explanation of what sort of assistance you were expecting and promise of payment.
The site is not designed for urgent matters. The best thing you can possibly do is contact a local attorney to help you. The California bar has a referral service that might help.
I apologize that I could not assist you.
Hello and welcome. New attorney here, since the prior attorney opted out of this question.
I'm very sorry to hear of this ordeal and it's unfortunate circumstances. It sounds like there is some addition information needed to get the complete picture. Based on your comments of a home quarantine order, it is unclear how this escalated and changed to such a degree. If you would like to discuss this further and have me do some specific research on this matter to find out what options you may have, I will be happy to do so. That type of attorney service is beyond the scope of this page, so I will forward you an additional services offered to that effect.
