"Dangerous" Chihuahua Bites Mail Carrier

A three-pound teacup chihuahua named Molly has been designated as a "Dangerous Dog" after nipping at a mail carrier in Windsor, Ontario. The carrier who was not seriously injured,  refused a bandage and went continued on her rounds after the incident.

According to an article by reporter Barbara Kay that appears on Canada's National Post website, the designation that has several stipulations for her owners.

Kay pens, "A 'dangerous dog' designation has…er…teeth. It means the Scotts must obtain one million dollars’ liability insurance and must henceforth have the microscopic canine leashed and muzzled at all times in public, even though it is unlikely they will find a muzzle small enough to fit Molly. They must also post “conspicuous” signs on their property reading “WARNING: Dangerous dogs on premises.” And furthermore, Molly must be microchiped to identify her dangerous-dog status."

Molly's guardian, Mitzie Scott (shown above with Molly) says she is concerned she may not be able to find a muzzle small enough.
