A “DANGEROUSLY out of control” dog must be muzzled at all times after injuring a man.

The German shepherd, called Shadow, bit Andrew Hove in Lewes.

Its owner Heath Rooney, 47, admitted being in control of an out of control dog, contrary

to the Dangerous Dogs Act.

He must pay £100 compensation to Mr Hove.

At Brighton Magistrates’ Court it was revealed that Shadow was “dangerously out of control” and injured Mr Hove.

Rooney, of Ashurst Lane, Plumpton, was told to keep Shadow muzzled and on a lead at all times to prevent him biting.

Halt leads and flexible leads were not acceptable, the court said.

It said the dog must not be under the control of anyone under the age of 16 or anyone physically unable to restrain him if required.

Shadow must not have access to doors or gardens where the public may approach and must be secured before anyone answers the door.
