Two dangerous dogs seized in Maltby euthanized

MALTBY — Two dogs that were found running loose in the Maltby area last week were euthanized on Thursday after being declared dangerous.

The dogs were first declared potentially dangerous in September after they were involved in a reported attack, said Vicki Lubrin, manager of Snohomish County Licensing &Animal Control Services.

Last week, the dogs were found running loose at Maltby Elementary in south Snohomish County. Children had to stay on buses and in cars until the dogs left the area.

The dogs were again acting aggressively and endangering public safety, Lubrin said.

The dogs’ owner declined to attempt to meet Snohomish County requirements for keeping dangerous dogs. Those provisions include keeping the dogs in a secured enclosure with a concrete floor and a wire top. The dogs also must be leashed and muzzled whenever they leave the property. The owner also must take out a $250,000 liability bond.

The owner gave the dogs up to the county earlier this week.
