BALTIMORE- Pit bull owners in Maryland are hoping for relief from either the courts or the state legislature following a ruling by Maryland’s highest court which called the dogs “inherently dangerous.” After the court ruled that landlords would be liable for any damages in the case of an attack, many landlords told their renters to move out or get rid of their dogs. Pit bull owners who rent their homes are still fighting to keep their dogs.
