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..

A behavior evaluation is far more important than the breed. A veterinarian was minding her own business walking with her children when 2 boxers attacked her- she was lucky to escape with her life- dozens of stitches later. She is still so nervous around dogs that she is now a cat-only vet. A pit bull ban would clearly not have prevented this attack- but a mandatory behavior evaluation of ALL dogs might have caught this ahead of time!

Are you out of your mind??..Clearly, you're not an animal owner, at least I hope not. Wth, what do you know about boxers and pits ....never mind, you're an idiot.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm still not happy with the request for allowed dna testing... this still allows for BSL.. They need to do away with ALL BSL, no swabs needed.

I want to point out that in 2012 there were 34 reported human deaths from dog attacks in the US (1). Compare that with the number of human deaths from traffic accidents: 25,580 (2), from prescription drugs: est. 100,000 (3), from alcohol-related causes: 79,646 (4), etc.

So should we ban all automobiles, ban prescription drugs and ban alcohol (again)?

I cannot sign this for I'm against BSL laws and blood testing all BSL should be removed from the books. If you replaced the word with black, gay, Jew, Hispanics or any other minority people would be outraged. Because it is pure discrimination and bigotry. The fight should be about ending the laws and exposing the supports as being ignorant racists ( best word to describe them) that they should be going after the people who abuse, torture these dogs to make the fight.

For they are the villains in this not the dogs they are the victims. Look at how many pit bulls saved from dog fighting like Vicks dogs that rehab and placed in loving homes. They have turned into great family dogs. If this petition was for overturning BSL laws I'd sign in a heart beat and share, but with the blood test attached it says that killing pit bulls is okay but not dogs that look like pitties.

BSL laws victimize the victim. Any dog can be made vicious if you read some of the recent studies small dogs rate the highest for bites while pit bulls are at the bottom. 20+ yrs ago drug dealers & gang members decides to adopt the pit bull for it made them look macho plus they could make money using them in dog fights. They ruin these great dogs reputation. Before they were called nanny dogs for they are great with kids and very protective of their family. You constantly read about pit...

You constantly read about pit bulls saving lives and sometimes at there own expense. There many famous pit bulls, the our gang TV petey was a pit bull, buster brown shoes mascot was a pit bull, RCA dog was a pittie, Helen keller's dog a pittie in the USA during WW1 Connecticut infantry dog called Sarge was a pittie he was the most decorated dog, shot a few times, saved several lives, caught a German soldier. They built a statue to honor him. If you made laws like the BSL against humans people would be in an uproar - replace the wor

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!
