Dog Shot Had History With Animal Control

Posted: Updated:

Officials say the dog, Cisco, who was shot by Police Saturday, had history with animal control.

An APD Officer was responding to a domestic disturbance call and was given the wrong address.

Officer Griffin got out of his squad car and went up the drive-way of homeowner Michael Paxton with his weapon drawn.

Cisco came up on the two in the driveway without a leash on and the officer says Cisco ran towards him and he shot the dog, killing him.

FOX 7 has learned that Cisco has had run-ins with animal control. The first in 2007 a woman reported being bitten by Cisco. We're told it was a minor bite.

In March, a resident called 3-1-1 and complained about a dog charging him. The resident said he was walking on the sidewalk by the house. Cisco was with his owner, but not on a leash. The resident said Cisco's owner told him not to move or scream.

A letter was sent to the Michael Paxton to notify him a complaint was field against Cisco and to explain the city ordinance.

The city says both incidents against Cisco are considered minor.
