Man's best friend?

A dog chases a boy in Jacumba, Calif., Nov. 7. Jacumba is a small border town of less than 1,000 people known mainly for its hot springs. The town, located about a half a mile from the border in unincorporated San Diego county, does not have a port of entry into Mexico.

Your dog may be your best friend, but not everyone else's. Remember to leash your pets to keep not only people safe, but to keep the animals safe as well!
