BSL is a very uneffective way to solve dog aggression. They believe getting rid of a breed will solve the problem, but it won't. Any dog has the potential to be aggressive, so attacks aren't just limitted to one breed. Instead of going after a breed we need to look more at the irresponsible owners and the dog that attacked. Look at what happened in Denver. Family pets were taken and euthanized because they didn't allow that breed in that area. It didn't matter if they were adults or puppies, they were put down. This is why we need to be the voice for the dogs who can't speak. Judge of deed not the breed and take a stand for these animals before it's too late. The dangerous dog list is long, and if we don't stop this now, we won't be able to own dogs period. These dogs have helped us for so long, now it's time for us to help them.
I am contacting you about the BSL law. I, along with many others, believe that this is a very ineffective way to go about dog aggression and attacks. Instead of looking at an irresponsible owner and the specific dog involved, they go after the whole breed. All dogs have the potential of being aggressive, so eliminating a certain breed will do nothing to help dog attacks. It is also discriminating against that breed. What they did in Denver was very inhumane and in many people's eyes should have been illegal. I don't want to feel the fear of having my animal taken away because of the breed it happens to be. If we don't do something about this soon, the list of dangerous dogs that are not allowed will be endless, and we won't be able to own a dog at all. I believe that I, along with many other responsible pet owners, should have the right to own any dog we want as long as we have the means to care for it. So please take this into consideration and stop BSL before it gets even more out of hand.
