Savannah officials are pushing state lawmakers to toughen laws concerning dangerous dogs.
City leaders are considering broadening the definition of dangerous dogs.
They say a dog that attacks for no apparent reason should be classified as dangerous.
Officials also look to require owners of dangerous dogs to outfit their pet with a muzzle.
In addition, officials plan to impose fines on dog owners who fail to have their pet vaccinated.
The Chatham County state delegation will present a proposal in Atlanta next month in hopes of seeing similar laws enacted statewide.
