      Arkansas City, KS

Aggressive dogs are found among any breed or crossbreed; Breed specific legislation and breed bans are not effective solutions to the problem of dog attacks; the problem with dog attacks is best dealt with through a comprehensive program of education,training and legislation encouraging responsible ownership of all breeds. We the underlined petition the city of Arkansas City Kansas to lift the ban on ALL Pitbull/Bully type breeds and refrain from enacting provincial animal control legislationthat is breed specific,instead implement a comprehensive bite preventionstrategy that encourages responsible ownership of not jus Bully type breeds but all type of breeds Thank You for your time and hope that we the people of Arkansas City will have another chance to prove these breeds and any other dogs are worth saving from being banned.

      As everyone else i agree with the fact that any dog/breed is gonna be apt to its environment its just like humans if they are tought the wrong thing then how do you break the cycle. For instance M.Vick on the dog fighting as an adult you shoould already know right from wrong so he can not blame society for his actions. i recently saw a picture of a reunion of some of those dogs that he owned and you could never tell that they was once in a bad environment other than the fact if they had external wounds the people who now own them show them the meaning of love as i do with my Pit and American Bully i do not live in Arkansas City Kansas and this ban is one of the main reasons why i located 10 minutes north but i have alot of friends and family and just support group on this ban being lifted if we have never ever met or had a chat i would like to say thank you from my heart because we are now able to come together to fight for whats right if anyone has any other helpful info hmu

      Pitbulls are not naturally dangerous as long as they are raised with love and respect. It is unfair to cal them dangerous and ban them

      Pitbulls are the sweetest dogs out there. They are only aggressive to other animals.

      I have friends with pittbulls who are the most loving dogs ever and I believe itb is wrong to ban these dogs. ANY dog can be an aggressive if not trained and/or raised right.

      As a former verterinary tech, it makes me sick to see a breed get banned because ignorant people have done wrong with them. I was going to be takin a job in the ark city area and because of the bully ban and I having a single Pit, i am having to look elsewhere for a place to move my family and then commute to work. This is so sad. It would be like taking what the average race of humans in jails and prisons is then banning them from society.
