Agriculture & Markets (AGM) CHAPTER 69, ARTICLE 7
§ 107. Application. 1. This article shall apply to all areas of the
state except any city having a population of over two million.

2. In the event that any dog owned by a resident of any city having a
population of over two million or by a non-resident of this state is
harbored within this state outside of any such city, the licensing
municipality in which such animal is harbored may exempt such dog from
the identification and licensing provisions of this article for a period
of thirty days provided such dog is licensed pursuant to the provisions
of law of the area of residence.

3. This article shall not apply to any dog confined to the premises of
any public or private hospital devoted solely to the treatment of sick
animals, or confined for the purposes of research to the premises of any
college or other educational or research institution.

any person, firm or corporation engaged in the business of breeding or
raising dogs for profit and licensed as a class A dealer under the

specific as to breed. Notwithstanding the provisions of subdivision one
of this section, this subdivision and sections one hundred twenty-three,

article shall apply to all municipalities including cities of two
