Description:

(BSL) Breed Specific Legislation should be stopped.  There is no definitive proof that certain breeds are genetically violent toward humans.  The CDC has based their research partially on media reports and misidentification.  These reports do not fully investigate what all the factors are on the dogs involved.  They do not research whether the dog was attacking do to abuse or lack of socialization.  They do not include all breeds of dogs.

 Any breed of dog can be vicious.

This is a petition to stop all Breed Specific Legislation.

 I am serious about this.  If I get enough people, I will make an official written petition for you all to sign and I will  send it to the federal government and to the state governments, if I get enough people from the same state.

 Fight for those who cannot defend themselves.

Stop this brutality now!This is a violation of a creature's rights how would you like YOUR rights violated.
"BSL = BULL SH*T LEGISLATION" Lets end this now!
"BSL = BULL SH*T LEGISLATION" Lets end this now!
YOU ARE SUCH IGNARAMASISES!!!!!There is no truth to a certain breed being viscious.
I currently have two Pit Bulls, and did have a third until two years ago, I have also been a Pit Bill lover for nine years..... The one thing that you learn fast when you get a Pit Bull is they they are natural born lovers, snugglers, cuddlers, blanket stealers, and bed hogs. They love their humans and would rather be by their side than napping, their toughness and ability to take pain in the ring actually makes them a wonderful dog for children, Children are usually to rough for animals and tend to hurt them without even trying.....Pit Bulls love children and their gameness (ability to deal with pain) allows them to let the children in the house to play rough, maul all over the dogs, and the pit bulls just come back with a smile on their face, tails wagging, and asking for more love. These animals should be known for their forgiveness and the never ending amount of love that flows through their dog bodies.

Dogs are not born mean and vicious, owners teach their dogs to be this way. Don't punish the millions of innocent dogs that are sweet, kind, and loyal best friends to their good and responsible owners. In a percentage of dogs vs. humans, dogs are often better and kinder then we are! They love us no matter what! We need to protect them as they would protect us! We need to be their voices!
I live in NY, and I have a two year old pit bull! He loves kids, and his best friend is a chihuahua who is about the size of his head and bosses him around... BSL is starting to get passed in areas of New York, and I dont know what I would do if I ever had to give him up! It scares me, and I feel horrible for all the other bully owners out there who are GOOD doggie parents and pay the price b/c of the handful of dirt bags who happen to own the same breed! Anything that I can do to help get the word out on how wonderful these dogs are, I do what I can!!!
this is not true not all pits are dangerous as they are made out to be they are only this way for how they are raised it is the owner who causes all this bad of the breed i am a pet groomer and these dogs are the biggest of babies they just want to be loved like any other dog they are the biggest lap dogs.this is not right i think the 3 strike law should be put on these dogs unless the first one is very bad then sieze the dog. not just because it is a pit. if anything take the owner away if the dog is aggressive cause they are the ones that made it that way.. please save BRUE let him go back to his loving home...
we have to do something for these animals, its Fear and Ignorance that is doing this ppl need to stop believeing everything they hear. just because assholes like mr vick pople think these dogs are dangerous! well i say screw the BSL! BSL= Ban Stupid Liturature

God bless you for doing this your an angel for all pits. I rescue and retrain- abused, abandon, and neglected pits. I retrain people -I come in contact with -to care about the breed. Most people I see, and talk to- believe the news horror stories. I prove them wrong on a daily basis. I have rescued lots of animals with in the past 11 yrs. And all the animals get along with my pits. Right now I have rescue-pit Big Daddy who found me in the dark right after Ike. He is a big baby. I have tried to find his home but, no luck yet. All shelters said they would put him down so I couldn't let that happen. He lives with our big family-Princess (APBT), Earthquake-(APBT), 2 cats and they are also rescues, Swagger-Greatdane pup who was a litter rescue @ 3wks of age with 7 others litter mates and an English bulldog who I saved for being put down. Plus Mom & Dad and 2 big sisters.

This is the saddest thing I have ever heard of. Please go to sorryagain.com and watch this video and if it doesn't break your heart, then you just don't have one. I'm also adding a special link for people in California to go to; where you can print out petitions and get signatures in your area...so we can stop this madness!
Defeat 861, the Dangerous Dog Breed Ban Law!
Please do what you can, and help these innocent animals. Thank you in advance.

i had to get rid of my pit cus it was a pit...

im very angry about this.

that dog never hurt anyone.

HATE THE DEED NOT THE BREED!!! When someone is murdered you punish the gun or the man behind the gun??? Don't ban the breed for the humans deed.... Stop BSL...

The problem here is, they have to ban the breed because it happens to be the breed that people use in dog fights. the only way to protect the aminal and people is to ban the dog. sorry it has to be that way but it makes sense.

It does not make sense! As Danielle H. said, punish the man behind the gun. The owners of the dangerous dogs should be punished. And just because a person kills a person, doesn't mean that all people are banned, right? So why, if one pit bull is aggressive, are all of them banned? It's not right.

Its stupid that those innocent people have to be judged just because they may own a pitbull or another dog that has been targeted towards agressivness. The aggressivness comes from bad owners! Not the animals!!!

Of course! Why would we blame something on people that we could just as easily blame on animals? Dogs that are vicious and mean are that way because people train them to be that way. Get rid of the REAL problem, not innocent animals.

bans on breeds are despicable & cruel. the city of Denver is an example of how close-minded, uneducated individuals could impose their fears and ignorance by murdering 1,000's if innocent pit-bulls. Denver- lift the ban and educate the public instead!!!!!

This is discrimination at it's highest "low" level, especially in intelligence, everyone knows that middles sized dogs, and even standard sized poodles can maim and bite even quicker than Rotts, Pitts, German Shephards and so on and so forth. Ask any deliver person and they will tell you it is the "ankle biters" that will nail you first!!! This is against our basic rights as humans. There are no bad dogs, only bad owners!!!!! Next they will be taking our guns away if we let them get away with this crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Act now or be sorry later.

I dnt hve a pit but to see any animal put down and judged based on a few that were fighting. This problem is not the dogs the (crual)owners of this dogs are the ones that should be punished not the dog. Most ppl that hve these dogs raise them right and they act fine. Love and Care give that to an animal and it will love u but if ur crual to it then it results in the problem the government think is happening with these animals

People dont even see what good dogs we have they just look at the past

I am fighting for my dog now..They are trying to Evict me from my house beacouse of what type of breed I have...my dog is seven months old..I have had no issues with him..I pay my bills every month on time...but becouse of what breed of dog I have..I am ready with attorneys if they serve me the papers (as they have told me but not served me yet) It is not in my lease and I 5 other people have pits in my area and what your going to evict all of us?? I have had pits all my life I know how to raise my dog...there the best friends you'll ever had...My kids can't beat without there dog so if the dog goes we go....PUNISH THE DEED NOT THE BREED

Bls should stand for bull **** laws cuz i have so many dogs and they might be big but the smallest bread a lasa apsa is the meanest i've been bitten by her and has anyone seen that throughout the years everyone pick on colors as in people and breads in dogs like if u black u not right and if ur white u can do anything thats bs and if ur a poodle u get away with everything even if u kill sum1 and a pit bull as (blacks) get laws for colors breads race sex everthing its bull cuz i'm 16 love pits ok whites and blacks and mexican people should have a say unless they have a background of drugs and fighting now they should baned from human contact then and should be fought for the fun of it to get them back for the hell they made ...putting a nickname to a dog pitbull is made for pits and fighting and standferd terrier is the real name ........should be a difference....

BSL is ridiculous. I have owned more than 10 pit bulls, and I currently have Rottie's, a pitbull and a shih tzu. The shih tzu is the meanest of all(not that she's mean) But she IS the boss. NONE of my dogs have ever been mean or vicious. They are raised with 5 children.And they are treated like family...they are our hairy kids...lol.
They need to get it right, it isn't the breed's fault, it is the owners. Lets start punishing them, make them responsible for their actions. Animals only know what they are taught!
I will admit, I was afraid of them...until I got my first one. Now I have fallen in love with them and will help try to protect them in any way I can!

I agree. It's not the breed of dog, it's the owners.

England has a ban on Pit Bulls, Denver has a ban on Pit Bulls along with tons of other places. The problem here is.... They have MORE Pit Bulls now then they did before the ban. Read up on it - BSL does NOT work, NOR should it work! First it was Shepherds then Dobermans, then Rotties... One of these days it will be Poodles and Peke's and Doxies, cuz gosh darn, those are killer dogs!

I have a Pit whom I found on the street - I was a bit timid about bringing her home (because of all the BS about Pits)and the fact that I had 5 other dogs. Well, Unfortunately, when we introduced (Momma - the pit I found) and Seven my half Pit, Momma attacked Seven - but I don't blame her - she was pregnant and we didn't know it. I had her aborted as she was carrying 12 pups and well,having 18 pets already, I certainly cannot afford 12 more! The truth is, we have never tried to re-introduce them, instead, we've spent about a grand on putting a fence up and a doggy door for Momma. The moral of my story is, dogs fight - it's a natural thing, it's called a pecking order or dominate match. It's a horrible thing, but in the wild, they do it to prove who is the boss. Once that is proven, the fighting goes away. EVERY DOG, no matter what breed it is, has this behavioral pattern. This won't stop with Pits, nor will dog fighting -- these pieces of s**t don't care what they fight as long as they can make money off it... You'll get my Pit Bull OVER MY DEAD (and maybe YOUR DEAD) BODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BSL is BS....any creature can kill, esp if trained. Next thing you know they will ban children who are into crime, just cuz. We need to be responsible for all living things in our homes!!

F*** BSL. Its amazing how people who have never owned this breed can be judgemental. If you have an APBT then you should do everything you can to stop BSL, unless, you fight them like all the other loser in the world who get a rise out of fighting dogs. It doesnt matter the breed. Dog fighting is for faggots who have no self-esteem.

Don't punish the innocent animal for what the ignorant humans do! Any dog can be raised to be mean. If you treat an animal right, they will be your friend for life. If you teach them to be vicious, then they will be. I have a wonderful pitbull, he is one of the most friendliest dogs I have had. He loves babies, kids, other dogs, just people in general. He tries to go up to everyone that comes near to get petted. And he loves to give kisses, when we come home the first thing he does is jump up and give us a kiss. We were in pet store and 3 little chihuahuas were in there with their owner and they showed their teeth, barked and growled at our dog, he didn't know they didn't like him being their, he wanted to play with them. I've seen more smaller dogs act more vicious than I have bigger ones. People see big dogs, muscular dogs, and automaticallly think they are mean.
