Dear Mr Tennant

break this figure down by breed.

In relation to the breeds of dogs which have had warnings issued, I
confirm that the Council holds the information requested but are refusing
your request, as set out under Section 16 of the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002.  The reason for this refusal is, that as stated in
Section 12(1) of the Act, that the costs of providing the information
requested would incur fees that exceed the upper limit of £600.  The
information requested would require a manual search of each case.

please break this figure down by breed.
