STOP BSL in Waukesha

This petition had 415 supporters


     Breed-specific legislation (BSL) bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance because they are perceived as “dangerous” breeds or types of dogs. A breed ban usually requires that all dogs of a certain appearance be removed from the area wherein the BSL has been implemented.

     Breed-specific legislation applies only to dogs of a certain appearance, not to any and all dogs. It does not take into account how the owner has raised, trained, or managed the dog. It does not take into account the dog’s actual behavior.

 

While most people know that breed specific legislation (BSL) can spread like wildfire when decisions are made by non-canine experts and stories are sensationalized by the media – I’m betting you’ll be shocked by some of the breeds on this list of 75. All of the dogs on this list are either banned or there are restrictions on owning them *somewhere* in the United States. Some of the breed names on this list may sound odd, but they appear here as they are written in the actual bans (including misspellings!). Some of the breeds here are being banned in communities due to blanket bans on canine physical traits (for example, the pug is stocky, broad and has a short muzzle- thus sharing some of the same traits as the “fearsome” bully breeds).
