The Vue at Lake Eola in downtown has received numerous complaints about tenants leaving their dog's droppings at a pet park on the seventh floor of the condominium.

The building is hiring a company called PooPrints to collect DNA samples from the dogs.  Technicians will swab the dogs' mouths and then match that DNA to the feces.

It will cost pet owners about $50 per dog to register them with PooPrints.

If a tenant is caught not picking up after their dog they could be fined $100. Repeat offenders could be evicted from the building.
