We are facing the same thing here in Australia, the council have the right to come into our homes & take our dogs & destroy them, even though, they haven't done anything to anyone. Breed Ban Laws are irresponsible & they think this is going to solve the problem, they need to get the the scumbags out there that are giving this breed a bad reputation. I find it very sad that any one breed of dog can be blamed for the way it's owner brings it up. It should have been sorted years ago when a dog...

I find it very sad that any one breed of dog can be blamed for the way it's owner brings it up. It should have been sorted years ago when a dog attacks, the owner should have been held responsible, but no, we'll just destroy the dog, that's a lot easier & cheaper, no court costs, no solicitors fees, nothing, just a vet fee for destroying the dog & fines for the owner. If owners were held accountable for their dogs actions in the first place, breed specific laws wouldn't even need to come into play. They still don't, governments should grow a pair & make it that the dog owner will own the responsibility for the dogs actions. Perhaps that will make people think twice about how they treat their animals. It's a very cruel world we live in. Our governments are letting people sleep out in the cold, giving houses to refugees while our own people are homeless & yet they concentrate so much more on dog legislation. All I'm trying to say is there are more important things that our governments could be investigating & trying to fix....MAKE THE OWNERS TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACTIONS OF THEIR PETS & LEAVE OUR BEAUTIFUL DOGS ALONE...CONCENTRATE ON MORE IMPORTANT THINGS GOING ON IN THE WORLD. Sorry for my rant guys.
Don't give up Hope! Keep advocating and working hard. Ohio just removed its vicious label on pits, and Cincinnati Just repealed it's ban on pit bulls. Change is possible, just keep up the good work
BREED BAN LAWS ARE SO WRONG NOT TO MENTION THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS DISCRIMINATING AGAINST RESPONSIBLE DOG OWNERS! PUNISH THE DEED! NOT THE BREED!
It's so sad that the people making the decisions about the breed have probably never even owned a Pit Bull so what the hell would they know? Would they say I don't like that person because of a reputation? It's all bullshit...
I knew a guy ripped up (50 stitches worth- all below the knees) by a chihuahua. I have been bitten by just about every critter but a pit! people need to get some education!
The only dog I personally knew who had to be put down due to vicious biting weighed 7 pounds.
I am 60 years old and have a Pit Bull, Pit Bull/Akita/Chow and 6 other big dogs who share my house and life with me. I will fight for the Pit Bull until I take my breath and all Boxy headed dogs who will be included in this profiling including Boxers and probably Boston Terriers (another American breed). Signed and Shared.
time for lawmakers to deal with the root cause of animal attacks. it is People who are the problem! No dog will react if it is treated with love and caring and training.
what educated person can see these laws as an anwser cruel inhuman acts to take a whole breed away we don't even kill viruses that can kill the human race(small pox ect) but people thing we should kill off a breed due to repretation cus by bad owner I am ashamed of these people its just embarassing.
END the pitbull ban! Stop killing our dogs!
BSL is a bullshit law, its time that people get an education on Bully breeds.IT IS A PURE ACT OF RACISM.
I think the major problem here is that they just treat all the animals that only remotely look like a pit bull the same! Without assessing the cases individually! I think that's what is done better in countries like e.g. Germany. My two cents... NO DOG should be treated like this! Even the ones that maybe have been in certain situations! There might be a REASON they behaved the way they did! They might have felt threatened! But especially "hunting down" innocent dogs is an atrocity without comparison.
IGNORANCE PLAIN AND SIMPLE IGNORANCE....this are not vicious killers they are beautiful loving amazing creatures...since when does canada have the death penalty....
