Vicious dogs??

Does Ohio consider German Shepherds vicious dogs? I googled it but I can't seem to get a straight answer. I know some places won't give you homeowners but why. My GSD is amazing

Unless Ohio has a state statute forbidding insurers to refuse to write for "dangerous" dogs, then individual insurers can refuse to write a policy in Ohio where the homeowner has a GSD. Some will not even let you waive coverage. So check with your insurer.

which is sad because a true Pit Bull is sweet and is not human aggressive.

to the OP I don't know if Ohio considers GSD's "vicious", i guess either google it or ask a city counle member?

The only state wide BSL in Ohio is for "pit bulls". The home owner's insurance issue and the BSL issue are not the same though. I know an OH GSD breeder who lost her home owners insurance after years of no issues because the company changed their policy on GSDs.
