A judge's ruling about a pit bull that bit and injured a six-year-old boy in Dunkirk called the animal "dangerous", but the ruling also allows the dog's owners to keep "Spike"'. But, Spike's owners will be required to make some changes. Those changes include keeping Spike in a backyard that is fully enclosed by a fence at least eight-feet high. The dog must also now be muzzled and restrained on a metal leash whenever he's on public property.
