Breed Specific Legislation: Is Your Pit Bull Next?
Breed specific legislation otherwise known as "BSL" has
started to sweep the world. Germany, Canada, The United States,
France, and England are among the major countries that have
enacted some form of breed specific law that restricts or calls
for a complete ban on several breeds from existing peacefully
within their borders.
American Pit Bull Terriers or anything that remotely resembles
a "Pit Bull" are among the most commonly listed breeds in BSL
Even more horrible is that fact these laws do not even take
into consideration the individual dog's history but instead lumps
them all together under one classification.
In most cases this means they are labeled as dangerous.
Ultimately forcing the well behaved dogs to be seen and
classified along with the dogs that have in fact bitten or

with the Pit Bull dilemma.
When in fact, nothing could be further from the truth and the
public is mislead by thinking that if Pit Bulls are banned or
restricted this is going to somehow stop irresponsible owners
from allowing their dogs to continue to create havoc in the
What will it take before people realize these laws are
completely useless and enacting them only serves to tie the
responsible owner's hands behind their backs?
Not to mention it creates the public image their dogs are
dangerous and potentially vicious. This creates further problems
for the owners because their neighbors become afraid and call for
their removal from the neighborhood.
Some might think this is a paranoid outlook on the situation.
Tell that to the woman whose Bull Terrier was set on fire in
Germany soon after the country enacted its breed specific
Will you sit back and let this happen?
Even if you do not share your life with the American Pit Bull
Terrier or a dog on these breed specific lists, it is your duty
as a dog owner to do something about it.
