52 Dangerous dog may be seized if control requirements not complied with

(1) An authorised officer may seize a dangerous dog if the officer is satisfied that any of the requirements of section 51 have not been complied with in relation to the dog.

(2) If a dog is seized under subsection (1), Part 7 applies in relation to the dog.

(3) However, a claim for the dog may be made under section 64 only if an authorised officer of the council of the area in which the dog is ordinarily kept is satisfied that each of the requirements of section 51 is capable of being complied with in relation to the dog.
