TUCSON- The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is joining in on an international effort to increase safety for pets and people.
The Yellow Dog Project encourages pet owners to put a yellow leash, or yellow ribbon, on dogs who should not be approached by other dogs or people.
Yellow Dogs are not considered aggressive, but because they are in training, or because of fear, pain, age or medical conditions, they are uncomfortable in social situations.
However, putting a yellow ribbon on your dog's leash is not a way to avoid proper training for your pet.
