From Petition Creator: Thanks to all the support, this ordinance was not passed!

American Pit Bull Terriers are sadly put down everyday. This wonderful breed of dog is labeled as aggressive; when in fact they are one of the most lovable breeds of dog. They are smart and courageous, serving our country and our people. City councilman Glenn Green is clearly singling out this breed of dog. The owners of these dogs are respectful members of society and should not be forced to get a license to own their dogs, or take out extra insurance. This discrimination needs to be stopped before it causes more wonderful, loyal dogs to be put to death. Please help end this BSL in Westwego!

      These dogs are innocent in every way possible. They do not deserve to die and be punished and discriminated against because certain PEOPLE make bad decisions. These are the most loving, caring dogs that I have ever owned or been around and are completely misunderstood.

      Punish the deed, not the breed. Educate yourself and stop being ignorant. Councilman Glenn Green, you make me absolutely SICK.

      ITS SICK and so wrong! There are some Pitt Bulls that are the sweetest babies and protectors. My granddaughter has one that she rides.

      Because I love my dog Ellie. She is three years old and a beautiful pit bull!

      Dogs are dogs. Owners can be irresponsible, causing problems. Rather than banning a particular breed, registration should be required for all household pets in order to help with a variety of other problems as well.
