Save our Dogs from the Breed Statistic Legislation sign now

BSL fails to target the problem: bad dog owners. Those who are causing the problems with their dogs will not care about the law. Either these owners will continue to own the breeds mentioned in the BSL or dump the dogs, get a new breed and continue the cycle. Or, a restriction will make the breeds more attractive to those who get a feeling of power by intentionally breaking the law. Some owners are simply poorly educated and do not know what it takes to properly raise, train, socialize and manage any dog. Owners who are intentionally bad or owners who are undereducated and irresponsible are the problems that need to be addressed. Also, BSL are tough to enforce, expensive and often very vague with their descriptions and how to identify a dangerous dog.

We need to change the law as it will eventually affect every one that has or intends to get a dog.
It is one of the most devostating thing that can happen to a family especially those who have children,(how would you explain this to your kids that your dog is likely to be destroyed just because of how it looks.

the goverment spends thousand a thousands if not millions each year on kennel for dogs they have taken.


1) It is extremely costly, not only to ensure specific breeds aren’t kept or bred, but to hold and/or euthanize illegal dogs for periods of time.
2) It ignores the real problem, bad and abusive ownership.
3) It ignores the many victims of attacks by non-banned breeds.
4) It does not prevent or reduce dog bites.
5) It accentuates the issue that some dogs appear ‘tough’ and are physically capable, therefore are more desirable by criminals and abusers.
6) It requires all dogs to be identified as a breed, which is near impossible as, for example, some dogs may be 1/6 Pit-Bull. It is difficult to track the entire lineage of each dog.
7) With one breed banned, the REAL problem, the bad owners, simply move to another breed, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on, and so on………
8) It shifts the accountability and responsibility from the poor owners to the dog, because of its breed.
9) It punishes the responsible owners, whom, for example, use Pit-Bulls as child therapy dogs or rescue dogs, they will be indiscriminately destroyed.
10) Innocent family pets are killed in vast numbers.
11) Hate’ is generated towards specific breeds and people with specific breeds.
12) People begin to fear dogs, due to the false belief that tough-looking breeds are automatically dangerous and to be feared.
