      It's not the breed that's the problem we have learned in the U.S.~it's the idiotic & irresponsible owners. Please don't punish innocent animals because of them.

      As a groomer, I am seeing how animal abusers can continue to work with pets and own pets etc and there is no way for anyone to know if they have previously been convicted of abusing animals. When pet parents take their fur babies to a pet professional and actually PAY for a service, they should not have to worry that they are paying for their fur baby to be abused.
