Massachusetts - Anti-BSL Petition sign now

We, responsible dog owners of Massachusetts, hereby petition the Legislature of the Commonwealth to initiate, and pass, a dangerous dog law that does NOT ban any specific breed of dog, or mix thereof. We further request that responsible ownership be encouraged by initiating and passing a law that would prevent insurers from denying coverage to owners of certain breeds, provided that the dog earns a CGC (www.akc.org AKC's Canine Good Citizen Program). We further petition that if any breed-specific law is before you, that it be amended by inserting language into the bill which exempts any dog that has earned a CGC, or earns one within the first eighteen months of ownership of the dog, or within the first eighteen months of the effective date of the law, whichever comes last.

    Breeds should not be banned, it needs to be on a case by case basis. Most mean dogs are trained to be that why or beaten by their owners.
