The Carroll County Board of Zoning Appeals has denied a request from a Detour woman to house 10 or more dogs at her kennel in the 8200 block of Sixes Bridge Road.In 1990, the board gave Elizabeth B. Ferro permission to operate a kennel with a maximum of 10 dogs. After someone complained in October that she had more than 10, she asked to enlarge the kennel, according to the board's written decision.Ms. Ferro, her sister and her mother have 17 dogs and 48 cats on the property, and the dogs often run loose in the neighborhood, the board said, contending that "Ms. Ferro has demonstrated little regard for her neighbors."
