On April 16th a proposal was made introducing a lengthy and extensive process for owning what they consider to be an "aggressive" breed dog.  This proposal calls for license fees, classes, special permits, increased insurance rates for dog owners, etc...  This not only will make adopting these pets even harder but will result in more being turned in to our local shelters and euthanized.  Not to mention puppy mills will probably increase since it will be harder to adopt these dogs through the proper channels.  They claim that these specific breeds are "prone to attack".  I myself have a Rottweiller and he is the biggest baby ever.  Local children lay all over him and he would never hurt anyone or anything.  This generalization needs to be stopped.  Stop putting the blame on the breed and put it where it belongs, on the owners that dont care for their pets as they should.  They are punishing all these dogs for a select few.  It is not just the larger breeds that will retaliate if scared, provoked or harassed.. ALL animals will...
