Permit now needed for wolf dog hybrids in Richmond

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Anyone who owns a wolf dog hybrid in the city of Richmond, now needs a permit.

The Richmond Cty Council this week passed a new ordinance regulating this new type of dog.

The new law also requires owners to build an eight-foot fence with a concrete base.

Owners are also required to build a second fence around the first to protect the public.

The new law takes effect immediately, but does gives wolf-hybrid owners time to make the changes.
