2011 ORS § 609.060¹
Notice of county prohibition on dogs running at large

(1) If the governing body of a county by ordinance, or a measure approved by the electors in an election conducted in accordance with ORS chapter 250, prohibits dogs from running at large, the county shall give notice, by publication in a newspaper having a general circulation in the county.

(2) After 60 days from the date of the notice, every person keeping a dog shall prevent the dog from running at large in any county or city where prohibited. A person who is the keeper of a dog commits a Class B violation if the dog runs at large where prohibited. [Amended by 1965 c.499 §1; 1977 c.802 §5; 1999 c.658 §5; 2011 c.597 §§248,317]

Note: Section 19, chapter 607, Oregon Laws 2011, provides:

Sec. 19. The amendments to ORS 609.060 (Notice of county prohibition on dogs running at large), 609.095 (Dog as public nuisance) and 609.100 (Dog licenses, tags and fees) by sections 16 and 17, chapter 607, Oregon Laws 2011, and section 317 of this 2011 Act [section 317, chapter 597, Oregon Laws 2011] and the repeal of ORS 609.040 by section 18, chapter 607, Oregon Laws 2011, do not invalidate any dog control program formed by one or more precincts prior to the effective date of chapter 607, Oregon Laws 2011 [January 1, 2012]. Precincts that formed dog control programs prior to the effective date of chapter 607, Oregon Laws 2011, may continue to administer and enforce those programs on and after the effective date of chapter 607, Oregon Laws 2011, in the same manner as a city dog control program.
