Dogs worldwide are being euthanised (killed/murdered) for how they 'look' rather than what they've done. It is canine eugenics, it is canine racism, it is canine profiling, it is canine bullying - all of which we abhor and fight against when it is enacted upon humans. We have come so far and yet in this aspect we have regressed to the witch hunts of the past. It is ludicrous and it has to stop. The majority of the caring, concerned citizens of the world, the voters of the world, the people who put you in power, realise this is ludicrous, cruel and needs to be repealed in favour of a system which looks at the deed not the breed and allows alternatives to death. Vets and dog organisations from the Kennel Club down disagree with BSL as well as the lay citizens. Failure to speak out publicly about the cruelty this legislation inflicts on families and their dogs is the equivalent to condoning it. Educate yourselves, read the story of Lennox in Northern Ireland, Wicca in Canada, Bear and Kooda in Australia.. alternatives were available but the authorities chose to murder them instead. This is NOT acceptable to the voting public. If you relish/cherish your jobs then you need to change the legislation and change it fast. Deed not breed, make owners/guardians responsible for a dogs actions and/or lack of training, offer alternatives to a death sentence and give animal abusers, dog fighters etc a sentence that will act as a serious deterrent rather than a laughable slap on the wrist.

      Its a form of discrimination that fails and hurts to many dogs and people in not rightful situations. Its should be evaluated on personal level and owners of biting dogs need to get a better evaluation themselves. this 'law' had grown out of proportion to just unreasonable discrimination and isn't solving any attack issues.

      It really is a shame to discriminate dogs just because of their breed. Staffs are great dogs and do not deserve to be put on a list as dangerous. They are family dogs and if they become dangerous it is always the other side of the leash causing this behaviour. Punish unworthy dog owners but not the dogs.
