Glad we decided against buying a home in kendale gardens,as nice as it is, theres TONS of loose dogs runnng there,whatare people thinking??? guess they don't care what happens to their pets not to mention its so annoying to people that enjoy a stroll around the neighborhood,glad we chose Creekwood where most folks respect their neighbors and fence or leash dogs.

As a resident of Kendale Gardens I must concur, it is rediculas. I do love the area, but the DOG's must go before someone gets killed, or maimed by these marauding packs of animals.

I called the local county mounties, and all they said that there was nothing they could do. HUH?? come on now what happens if a child gets attacked, or an older person out for a stroll gets attaked,Nothing Huh?

That same officer I conversed with over the phone got very hostile with me for suggesting that if I ever see someone get attacked they (the dog or dogs)will be taken care of, I wasn't looking for a confrontation but this officer was out of line and I told him so, where by he even threatened me with being arrested. Really?? what kind of attitude is that? I'll tell you they (the Sheriffs office, and county administration) could care less about our well being.

Wake up Lauderdale County law enforcement, and pass some laws to protect your citizens of this menace.

Times Daily; why was this thread removed it contained no foul language, or any othre impropriataies.?

As a relative new comer to the state of Alabama I was wondering as others I'm sure must wonder.

Although now " Sassy Kims" has enlightened me of the facts she wrote about this area not being a Municipality. In any State I have ever lived in laws are laws concerning an animal being able to harm someone, and yes I know I'm living in Alabama now.

Creekwood lies within the city of Florence so it is subject to Florence's leash law. Sec.4-80 (Running at Large) "It shall be unlawful for any dog to run at large inside the city limits. You may let the dog loose in your yard not confined if you can control him but if you go inside the dog must be confined. You may take your dog to the park as long as you keep it on a leash."

Kendale Gardens is not in the city limits as previously stated.

The state law includes this:
