This could be any one of our own dogs in the future!
BREED SPECIFIC LEGISLATION / Dangerous Dog Laws are wrong and these two family pets should NOT have been "put down".
JUSTICE needed for Bear and Kooda and all other innocent dogs facing BSL!..the next dog could be yours!
This tragedy occured in Victoria Australia.
Two dogs labelled as pit bulls by a local council in Victoria have been euthanased after their owners lost a lengthy legal battle to save their lives.

The dogs, named Bear and Kooda, were put down in Shepparton yesterday under the state's new dangerous dog laws.

The two dogs had not done anything wrong, but the laws allow councils to seize and destroy unregistered pit bull terriers and their crosses based on visual identification.

THANKYOU FOR HELPING TAKE ACTION over the tragic death of Bear and Kooda.
Thoughts for Nathan and Samantha, and for their two beautiful pups Bear and Kooda, so very sad. You poor, poor innocent dogs, trapped in the middle of this BSL horror, all due to human ignorance.
