Joe Namath's dog declared dangerous

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Back in the day, Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath was known for his dangerous arm. Now that he's retired in Florida, it's his dog that's dangerous.

Namath appeared before a hearing officer on Thursday in West Palm Beach to answer charges that two of his dogs attacked people at his home in Tequesta, about 90 miles north of Miami.

His 6-year-old yellow Labrador retriever, Leo, was declared "dangerous" during Thursday's hearing. Officials say the case against another of Namath's dog was dropped because a witness didn't show.

As a dangerous dog, Leo must now be muzzled and leashed even on Namath's property. An animal control officer will visit Namath's home yearly to be sure he is complying.

Namath declined comment, but his attorney says he might appeal.
