Gainesville Woman Wants Changes to County Dog Parks
After her small dog was killed at a dog park, one Gainesville woman is asking Alachua County to make some changes.
Andrea Morgans' Minature Pinscher Roxy was attacked and killed by a Boxer-mix last Monday. The two dogs were playing, but when Roxy ran away, the Boxer-mix chased it, grabbed it, and began shaking it violently. Morgan believes the Boxer-mix must have been confused because she says the he didn't seem aggressive.
She doesn't want this tragedy happen again and has asked the county commission to build a fence to separate the big dogs from the small dogs.
"It was just an unfortunate circumstance that i think could have been avoided by keeping dogs that small separated from big dogs," says Morgan.
Robert Avery with the Alachua County Parks and Recreation department says they have to still do some more research on the issue before any permanent changes can take place.
"I understand she's not blaming anybody but only to prevent this in the future and we certainly will consider that in what we can do to not only help her and appreciate her offer to assist in any way in making this happy," said Avery.
