Petitioning Belfast City Council Dog Warden Department and 12 others

Save Lennox, an aid/therapy dog to a disabled girl; being killed because he "looks like" a pit bull.








EVERYONE, PLEASE SIGN the INTERNATIONAL PETITION that was started by Lennox's loved ones HERE:  

My hope is for this petition at to help gain hundreds if not thousands of signatures for Lennox's International petition.

*****Update: On June 13th, Lennox was sentenced to death. Family and supports are now trying to move Lennox to the United States to live out his life in peace, and not die at the hands of strangers. Please go to the following link to help, ONE LAST PUSH OF URGENT EMAILS NEEDED FOR A LENNOX MIRACLE:   

***Update: A decision day was set for May 24th 2012, however no decision was made. Please continue to support Lennox, not just by signing and sharing his petition but by standing up for our pets and animals everywhere. 

**Update: On November 1st, Lennox was granted a reprieve (a loop hole was found). A decision is still left to be made.

**Update: On September, 30th, 2011, the court ruled sweet Lennox as too "unpredictable" and will be put down in 14 days. The family has two weeks to find a legal loop hole to try and save him. Supporters of Lennox are asking that Lennox be moved to the South (where the laws are different), so he can be spared and visit with his family. 

* Update: The date for Lennox's Appeal has been movied from September 16th to September 23rd 2011.

* Update: The date for Lennox's Appeal is September 16th, 2011. Let's come together and support Lennox!

On October 1st, 2011- Lennox will have been locked up for 500 days.

On May 19, 2010, Lennox the dog was seized from the home of Belfast resident Caroline Barnes after a Belfast City Council member labeled him as an "American pit bull type terrier" based on nothing more than a 20 second tape measure reading of his legs and muzzle. Barnes, who has an 11-year-old disabled daughter who relies on emotional support from Lennox, was hospitalized after the dog's seizure due to distress.
