Maybe a pet license like a car license? I rarely see someone who has a german shepherd in control. Most of the time the dog is walking the owner in the park rather than the other way around.

This is real danger in apartments. My mom (70 years) was coming out of the elevator when a huge dog pounced on her. She fell flat to the ground and was bed-ridden for more than 2 weeks

In India, pets are not taken care well. The owner feels like they’re free to disturb others.
Delhi pet owners do take their dogs on road for potty. Shameless people.

These pets are becoming life scare! Owners must behave responsibly to avoid others inconvenience or if not they should not pet.

German Shepherd in a flat on 3rd floor 🤬🤬. Hope criminal charges are pushed against the parent.
