Animal Control looking at changes to policies about "Dangerous Breeds"

The Escambia County commission is considering changing its policy about so-called "Dangerous Breeds."
  
Right now when the county shelter takes in certain breeds including Pit Bulls and Rottweilers, they don't adopt them out.
  
They will release them to rescue groups but otherwise, they're put down.
The proposed *new policy would have the staff evaluate each individual dog for aggressive or territorial behavior.
  
The county will hold public hearings on the change before making a final decision.
