Largest Kennel Bill for Seized Dog


What is the biggest kennelling bill your force has had to pay to house a dog that was detained because it was considered potentially dangerous and/or a banned breed? 

Please state the total bill, the time span that the kennelling bill covered, where the dog was seized from, what was the breed of the dog and what was its name. Please also state the ultimate fate of the dog? Was it put down, returned to owners or housed with a third party?  

Clarification received: 

From 1 2010 please


Our records show that that largest bill totalled £8,087.60 for kennelling a seized dog. The bill covered kennelling for a period of 1 year, 5 months and 13 days. The dog (named Riley) was a Staffordshire bull terrier and was seized from Mangotsfield. The dog was returned to the owner.
