There may be a new law in Ohio regarding "vicious" dogs.

The proposed law would give judges no choice but to euthanize dogs who are reported to be aggressive.

This is a hard thing for many dog owners to consider-

Representatives from the Human Society of the Mid-Ohio Valley say there's a risk that even typically friendly pets can have incidents of aggression..

Steven Herron of the Humane Society says the most important thing for pet owners to remember is socialization.

That means, if you do have a dog be sure to get your pet out and about with other dogs and people.

He says this will reduce the chance of the dog acting defensive when it comes across a seemingly threatening situation.

The Humane Society recommends the "Yellow Ribbon" Program for owners-

The program helps dogs adjust to socialization with other animals and people.

And hopefully will help people to avoid conflicts with losing a pet if this new law is passed.
