Stop Legislation Against Certain Dog Breeds

Target: U.S. State Representatives
Sponsored by: American Humane Association
Many states, counties and municipal governments are turning to legislation targeting specific breeds as an answer to dog attacks. While supporters of this type of provision - commonly called breed-specific legislation - argue the only way to be safe from dog bites is to eradicate "dangerous breeds" from the community, there is little to no evidence that breed-specific legislation reduces dog bites and dog attacks.

In 2008, cities in over half of the states considered some form of breed-specific legislation. In Omaha, NE pit bulls are required to have a $100,000 liability insurance policy. And some cities like Denver and Sioux City have banned pit bulls altogether.

Sadly, a bill recently failed in Illinois that would prevent insurance companies from unfairly discriminating against consumers based on the breed of dog at their residence. And now, several cities across the country are considering some form of breed-specific legislation, including Mississippi, Massachusetts, Ohio and Washington.

Breed-specific legislation does not work and we know it. Sign this petition to show your dedication to stopping breed-specific legislation from being implemented across the country. The more signatures we have, the stronger our voice!  SIGN THE PETITION NOW
****************************************

Nationwide petition to Congress that says, "We the people of the United States hereby petition Congress to cause to have drafted, and to enact a Bill for federal legislation, that when enacted will protect ownership property rights, and legal use rights in domestic animals, and ensure that no city, county, or State authority shall prohibit, or restrict the peoples ownership rights, or legal use rights in domestic animals by specific breed, or by species. Animals are humankinds most ancient, and traditional property. The animal industry is the cornerstone of the economy of the United States, and must be preserved. It is not the intent of the petitioners to restrict any local authority in addressing the zoning for, or of the keeping of animals."

Wouldn't that be a dream come true instead of having to fight city by city.

My own rescued American Pit Bull Terrier was used as a bait dog by her prior owners. Within 4 months of living and training with me, she aced both her AKC Canine Good Citizen test and the rigorous Therapy Dog test. As a certified Therapy Dog, she visits 60+ advanced Alzheimer's patients at a hospice facility weekly. You can see video of her visits here: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/354737. Daisy Mae is yet another great illustration of how the same dog can act under different HUMAN ownership.  One of Michael Vick's dogs, (Leo) is also a Certified Therapy Dog who works with cancer patients now!  Judge the right end of the leash - the human side!  Posted by Alison Hansen on 12/23/2008 @ 10:48AM PST

BSL or banning of a specific breed is DISCRIMINATION, arbitrary and capricious.  It is the same as banning blacks, Chicanos, Orientals, or American Indians. Posted by Andy Whiteman on 12/30/2008 @ 11:02AM PST

BSL is the equivalent of RACIAL PROFILING!!  It's as wrong as wrong can be!!  To determine whether a dog lives or dies based on perceived looks and not on individual personality is discrimination at it's worst!!!  Please propel this issue out of existence, replaced with a Dangerous or Vicious Dog law that covers each individual dog's character but not by breed!!! Posted by Toni Phillips on 12/31/2008 @ 12:09PM PST

BSL is discrimination at its worst.  Entire breeds are assumed to be guilty of bad behavior, despite evidence to the contrary.  Only responsible people and their dogs will be punished by this sort of legislation.  Those who use their dogs as weapons or for nefarious purposes will continue to do so and ignore BSL.  Punish the guilty through going after irresponsible owners.  Don't punish the innocent. Posted by Chris Morrison on 12/31/2008 @ 01:33PM PST

Breed discriminatory laws are not the answer to public safety issues, in fact they infringe on a person's constitutional due process rights.  In the Illinois Senate, Senator Obama voted for our law that prohibits breed disciminatory laws in the land of Lincoln.  We need such laws to protect pet guardians in all 50 states.  Posted by ledy vankavage on 12/31/2008 @ 04:21PM PST

There are no bad dogs, only bad owners. If Michael Vicks' dogs could be saved so can the others. Stop discriminating against an animal, and start holding PEOPLE responsible for their actions -- if you get a dog that needs a stronger willed owner, then it's your responsibility to make sure you give the level of guidance needed.  If  you are too meek to demand your strong willed dog behave in a reasonable manner, get a dog that is known for it's meek nature instead!  Posted by C Fox on 12/31/2008 @ 06:24PM PST

Dear Mr. President...

We Americans can endure a lot. Our friends and loved ones died in the tragedy of September 11th, and we moved on. We are in times of economic cisis, yet we will survive. We have had our brothers and daughters, fathers and cousins in the middle east for some years now... and they will come home.

The Americans who waiver in their survival are the four legged ones. We humans chose to bring them into our homes some 5,000 years ago and make them live by our rules... yet those rules are sometimes unfair, unjust, and illogical.

Mr. Presidant, seeing  how we elected you... YOU work for US.

We demand a level playing field for our four legged companions, loved ones, partners, therapists, and decorated heros.

We demand you stop being a politician and start being a leader.

Lead America in the New Year with zero tolerance Anti-Breed Specific Laws and Legislation. We vow... we will follow.

Sincerely,

The United States of America

Yes!  Give people back their rights to due process!  Please support this idea.

McCarthyism went out of style in the early 1950's, The Salem witch hunts crumbled in the early 1700's... how the H*LL did narrow minded thinking come back into style? BSL Isnt about Pit Bulls. BSL is about placing blame... and who better a target than a social group who has no constitutional rights or a voice of defense.

Breed Specific Legislation = BULL SHIT LOGIC.

The Breed Specific Ban Enacted In Denver Has Not Made Any One Safer From Dog Bites Just As Many Citizens Of Denver Have Been Bitten After The Unconstitutional & Discriminating Law Was Passed As Did Before. How Can Some One With Any Sense Think That By Rounding Up Every Dog That Looks A Certain Way, Regardless Of The Individual Dogs Temperament Can Be Justified. Many Of The  Targeted Look Alike Dogs That Have Been Killed In Denver & Other Cities Were Perfectly Behaved Dogs Which Belonged To Some Family That now Must Suffer The Meaningless Slaughter Of Their Pets simply because it looked a certain way, This Doesn't Add Up. Any Way You Look At It, It's Wrong, What's next? If We As A Country Apply This Generalization Based On How Some One Looks Rather Than By  Their Character Were Would We BE?

Our Pit Bull and our Boxer were taken out of our locked truck by DPD and Animal Control while visiting friends in Denver. We were forced to spend the night and attempt to retrieve our dogs the following day. We were told that: 1- If we could not prove that we did not reside in Denver, our dogs would be killed. 2- if we ever returned to Denver with these dogs, they would be killed. 3- we could not even pass thru Denver without stopping without a permit to transport our dogs. If we got caught, the dogs would be killed.
The Animal Control officer did not have an answer as to why the Boxer was taken along with the PBT, nor did he care. We paid a hefty fine and both dogs got Kennel Cough. The Boxer began to have seizures, and we are sure the dogs were Maced. he died a few months later after a seizure.
To me, the actions on the Denver officials constitute robbery, kidnapping, extortion and destruction of property. These Nazi tactics are common, ignoring both Human and animal rights.
Ban BSL and the Nazi tactics of those who support and enforce it!

Please vote for this if you haven't. All the dogs being targeted by this law needs you to help them.  This law does nothing to help protect the people living in the cities. It has been proven that peole that make these dogs vicious only switch to another breed. Please vote for this.

As a PROFESSIONAL K9 Groomer who has groomed MANY different types of dogs - I agree that BSL is retarded. I have groomed MANY Pit Bulls and the only attack that I got was an attack of KISSES. I've had small lap dogs bite me and I wouldn't even want BSL on them. Who gives anyone the right to say what one person can have as a loving pet? I thought that the U.S. was a free Democratic Country? Free to make choices? Hmmmm.
