Bay City Says Soldier's 'Extra' Dogs Have To Go 7-02-2010

In June, Army Specialist Adrienne Shooltz left her home in Bay City for deployment to Afghanistan.
The family that she left behind includes her three dogs. She left them in the care of her mother, Marion Laur, at her home on Braddock Street.
And that has created a heart wrenching dilemma for the family.
Laur has two dogs of her own and that means that, for now, their are five four-legged residents at her home -- and that is two more than Bay City's zoning ordinance allows.
Laur told TV5 news that the city has given her a deadline of July 8 to do something with the two "extra" dogs.
But she said that there are no other relatives or friends that can take the dogs, so she is faced with the possibility of having to take some of them to an animal shelter.
A city zoning official contacted by TV5 news refused to discuss the case and referred us to city manager Robert Belleman's office. On Thursday, a staff member there said she would look into the case.
Laur said that sixth ward commissioner John Davidson has been trying to help her and, she still hopes to save all the dogs.
She said that her daughter called from a base in Indiana Thursday night, and is very concerned about the fate of her four-legged family members.
