5 years after Omaha adopted 'some of the toughest dog laws in nation,' results praised
Matthew Lane's pit bull mix Dallas was put on the dangerous dog list three years ago, a result of Omaha's strict ordinance on dogs, but Lane got Dallas removed from the list after taking steps to improve his behavior.

There are 62 dogs in the City of Omaha listed as potentially dangerous, but Matthew Lane's mixed-breed pit bull is no longer one of them.
That's because the 11-year-old dog, Dallas, and Lane worked their way off the list created five years ago by the City Council and monitored by the Nebraska Humane Society. Mark Langan, vice president of field operations for the Humane Society, said 42 dogs and their owners have been removed from the list since Omaha adopted “some of the toughest dog laws in the nation.”
