      Fort Irwin, CA

I have an American Staffordshire Terrier, The DOD , has deemed that breed as agressive, She is a service dog, She is not agressive . She is my world , I depend on her . I want them to give a temperment test to ALL animals on post & not discriminate against their breed. It's not fair , It's unjust . They need to review their policy's, Not just Pit Bulls but other breeds they have deemed "Agressive"

      We as individuals have rights , As Military Families , we suffer enough , Wives/Husbands go without one another for over a year at a time, Children go without their parents. A Pet is a member of the family ,They are a way to help us through difficult trying times. The Military says we have to move, My dog , Was accepted on One Army Post & loved by so many including housing & the Mp's driving around would even stop to pet her & Now I get to Ft. Irwin & they say NO , Because they are under investigation over another "unauthorized" "Pit Bull" That bit someone , never mind the other "authorized breeds" that bit someone. My Dog is paying the price for the action of the other. My dog has never put her teeth on anyone nor would she . She is loving , affectionate, She thinks our grandson is her puppy. We need to STOP Congress, STOP the Government from these bans on dog breeds, It's not effective , it cost US taxpayers money, As Ohio figured out. These policy's & procedures NEED to be changed.

      This dog has gone through extensive training to become a service animal. Not just any dog can do it, it takes a very special dog. This service dog gives its owner back her independence, and a better way of life.

      I have pitbulls that have been nothing but loving and gentle. One of which is a service animal for myself. They are easily trained and my kids adore them. Its not the animal that is mean its the owners that create mean animals. Stop banning these loving animals!!!!! I refuse to give up mine regardless of what anyone says.

      Dogs shouldn't be deemed aggressive based on how they look. It's absolutely ridiculous.

      Ignorance breeds fear in people....be knowledgable about breeds before you judge them
