Dogs are great friends and guards. They can scare the sh*t out of intruders. But unfortunately, dogs also have a riskier side you should know of so you can take precautions to avoid stories that touch the heart. We would prefer the National Assembly and State Houses of Assembly to make a law stipulating stiff penalties for dog owners who leave their dogs to roam the streets unleashed.
