Letter to
Repeal B.S.L. in Maryland
Since there was no agreement on declaring that "pit bulls" are not inherently dangerous, the judges ruling stands. I find this unfair as you point out a specific breed of dog. From my experiences with Pit Bull type dogs, many have been sweet and non threatening. Dogs do not bite with out warning. There is a very low percentage that will not show a sign. Just because a dog bites, doesn't mean that it's aggressive. By throwing one specific breed under the bus, you will inadvertently cause the death of many "pit bulls". Many will become homeless. Abandoned because their owner could no longer keep them due to insurance rates or apartment rules. The shelters and rescues will become overflowed with "pit bulls", leaving no choice but euthanasia. I am asking you to change the law to help loving families keep their beloved pets and to prevent shelters form killing many innocent dogs. Thank you.
