End Breed Discrimination Cincinnati

The City of Cincinnati has lost residents and tourist dollars because of their breed discriminatory ordinance. The ordinance does not enhance public safety and tramples the rights of responsible dog owners. The city is in conflict with the Americans with Disabilities Act, due to the US Department of Justice issuing a final rule concerning breed discrimination and cities who have restrictions based on breed. The State of Ohio has now repealed it's breed discriminatory law in favor of a breed neutral dangerous dog law that will enhance public safety. Cincinnati's citizens want a breed neutral dangerous dog ordinance that will enhance public safety by targeting reckless dog owners of all breeds.

      BSL is an ignorant and non-effective way to decrease vicious dog problems. The makers of these laws are taking the easy way out. Instead of correct the problem, they just ban the "source". I have owned and fostered many pitbulls and pit mixes and I have never come across one that has any more quirks than any other breed. i could go on and on...but I have to go walk my dog :)

      It is the owner that makes a dog aggressive.

      Isn't it time You understood that any dog can be dangerous if not treated properly! Stop discriminate breeds!

      To echo what all pit-lovers have said all along...stop blaming the breed.
