I had a dog that lived to be 14 and passed away due to illness. She was a sweet, gentle dog, however we kept her breed mixture to ourselves as we knew people would get nervous. She never bit or attempted to bite anyone. It is the responsibility of the human to socialize and train any dog they own. Dogs seldom bite unless they have not been raised with love, and responsibility. When a dog becomes a problem, save the dog and lock up the human!

Haiden, I am not Brenda Male-Woodcock - I am the lady above her paragraph. I don't agree with Brenda but I think she is confused. Perhaps she doesn't know that a dog that has been bullied, neglected, handled with anger and not love, not taught how to relate to people can still be saved and retrained. Not by the owner but by someone who knows what they are doing. It is never good to simply call her an idiot even if you are sure you are right. I am very sorry she has had a bad experience...

I am very sorry she has had a bad experience and I hope someone helps the dogs before they hurt someone else or someone hurts them. I am proud of you, however, for recognizing that it is not the dogs fault. We both want the dogs to get help.

TOTALLY CORRECT! JAIL THE OWNER then re-educate the dog, but don't kill the dog! Re-home to a better environment for a possible bitter. Nothing says they will ever bite again..

PLEASE DO NOT SIGN THIS!!! I can't sign this because I believe that both BSL AND blood testing are wrong. BSL equals racism. It's very sad that intelligent people believe that one bad apple spoils the whole bunch. Would we approve blood testing to prove what race a person is? For heavens sake I was once attacked by a ferocious Corgi...the Queen's favorite dog!

Wake up and use your brain! BSL and blood testing lead to only one outcome: doggie genocide!

“We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognize it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.”
― Albert Schweitzer

Omigosh! This is outrageous! How does anyone, with ANY ounce of compassion, kill a dog just because he "looks" like a so-called "bad dog" NO dog is born bad...only HUMANS can make an innocent domestic dog dangerous!

The government should concentrate on the real vicious dogs.The real vicious dogs are the ones with two legs and wearing shoes,using alcohol for an excuse.Leave the 4 legged ones alone.

I love this quote from Leonardo Da Vinci.....George Feldman is so right in what he said in his comment. The real vicious scum are the government ... they should be put down because they look ugly inside and out, and their bite is more vicious than any animal on earth, and they rip good people apart believing they are some kind of God's that are untouchable.

If your dog is trained to be vicious, to attack, that's what it will do. Don't care whether it's a poodle, cocker Spaniel, or any other breed! Properlyu raised with love, Pitties will be teddy bears! Let's be reasonable, here!

Not just anyone should own a pitbull, if you want to own a pitbull the government should support and educate. Create programs for people to attend and learn about owning a pitbull. Do not kill them and take innocent pets from families. People are not registering them because the legislation is ridiculous and doesn't offer a good life for the family or the dog. Give them a chance to have a great dog in society. This is different to a dangerous dog who has a history of biting or aggression. Please lets educate rather than kill

C'est triste à dire mais il faudrait un suivi de tous les chiens vendus en nommant des inspecteurs par exemple...car ce sont les maîtres qui sont condamnables et non les chiens. Il faut davantage d'enquêtes à propos des combats de chiens car ceux-ci se font dans la clandestinité et déterminer la façon dont les détenteurs des chiens pour faire des combats ont pu se procurer leurs chiens. Il y a un vrai travai d'investigation dans ce domaine. Est-il fait ?

ce suivi des chiens permettrait d'éviter des dérives et de déterminer si les bons soins sont apportés par leurs maitres envers leurs animaux

This has become a World wide epidemic. An epidemic of fear unfounded. Yes, there are stories of pitts attacking people & other animals. That is the exception, not the rule. There are just as many GOOD stories of rescues, love and devotion of the breed. Judging a book by it's cover isn't fair in any Country. The movie "Homeward Bound" had a "bully" breed that resembled a pitt. Does that make that animal any more damgerous? NO. As a recent new owner of a AmStaffLab, I've seen the faces and...

The movie "Homeward Bound" had a "bully" breed that resembled a pitt. Does that make that animal any more damgerous? NO. As a recent new owner of a AmStaffLab, I've seen the faces and reactions of my dog when I take him in public - just because of their own unfounded fears and lack of knowledge of MY dog. Michael Vik did damage to the breed, but there are responsible owners out there that care for their dogs. The BSL, lack of proper education and unfounded fears has to end. First, it was the Dobermans, then the Rottweilers and German Shepherds. I can personally tell you - it's not the dog, it's the way the owners raised the dog.

Please stop this. Behaviour all has to do with training and environment. There are such wonderful loving dogs that are doomed by this legislation. It is not fair!
