Judge(s): GIBSON

This is a case about an unleashed German shepherd. The dog belonged to Appellant’s neighbor, who allowed the dog to remain unleashed in his yard. Appellant reported this to several employees of the City of Memphis, who ultimately determined that the dog was appropriately restrained in the neighbor’s yard by an invisible electric fence. Appellant was unsatisfied with this determination and filed suit against the City and its employees for tort claims and violations of her constitutional rights. The trial court dismissed Appellant’s suit for failure to state a claim upon which relief could be granted. We affirm.
