Stop the Addition of Breed Specific Legislation to the City's Dog Bylaw

    1. Petition by

      Meadow Lake & District Humane Society

Under this legislation, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Pit Bulls and their mixes would be deemed "dangerous." Punishing entire breeds based on the actions of a few dogs is not a proactive solution. Good dog owners are punished because of the irresponsibility of those owners who do not properly socialize, train, vaccinate and spay/neuter their dogs. Responsibility should be placed on owners and dogs should be deemed “dangerous” on a case by case basis only if they have exhibited dangerous and aggressive behavior, rather than singling out entire breeds. PUNISH THE DEED, NOT THE BREED!

      I own a rottweiler and pit bull and would never want them to be banned because of some irresponsible owners. The worst either of my dogs has ever done was lick someone excessively to the point where I had to put them in their crate for them to calm down. If bred and treated right, these can be the best pets because they are loyal and full of love for their families.

      It's not the dog breed ~ it's the dogs owner ( a dog is only as good as it's owner! )
