The Denver City Council on Monday voted to amend a code that banned pit bulls entirely from the Colorado capital. The amendment passed 7-4 and will take effect 90 days after Mayor Michael Hancock signs it into law.

To own a pit bull, residents must register with Denver Animal Protection, have no more than two, and get the dog a “breed-restricted license,” according to the city council.

A license application includes the name and address of where the dog will primarily reside, two emergency contacts, an accurate description of the pit bull, an annual fee and proof that the dog was microchipped, received a rabies vaccination and was either spayed or neutered.

If an owner doesn’t apply, he or she could face administrative and/or criminal penalties, according to city council.

If the pit bull shows good behavior after three years, Denver Animal Protection will remove the requirement for a breed-restricted license and the owner could then license their pet under the same restrictions as any other dog.
