On the 14th July 2016, our family dog, Hank, was taken from my home by 8 police officers and 4 dog wardens.
He has been condemned to die because he looks like a pitbull, which under northern Ireland’s Breed Specific Legislation is an illegal breed.
Hank isn’t a Pitbull, he is an English Staffy crossed with a Labrador.
Our only legal recourse is to fight this in the courts. We will do anything to save Hank, he is a much loved part of our family. He is more than a pet.
The best chance at returning Hank to his home is to prove that he is not dangerous but this is costly, to do this we would have to find the money to pay for a professional opinion.
This petition is to raise awareness of Hank and other dogs like him that are facing death. We are calling on Belfast Council not to kill Hank.
Please help by signing this petition.
