BSL discriminates against dogs based on their breed
rather than individual owners and their dogs that are involved in dog bite incidents

Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) only serves to penalize responsible owners and innocent dogs.
At the same time, it does nothing to protect the public from the truly dangerous or vicious dog of any breed.
It does nothing to effect the actions of irresponsible dog owners and breeders.
American Pit Bull Terriers are the highest on the future "distinct" list of dog breeds and are already banned in many cities.
If you own a APBT or plan to own one in the future, it is your obligation to look into BSL in your city/state NOW
HELP STOP B.S.L. Please do your part in stopping B.S.L. in your community and state. Don't let the government dictate how a breed of dog should live, if it's allowed to live at all. Educate yourself on what you and your friends can do to help in the fight. Please read all that you can and be prepared. Don't ever be so bold to think BSL could never effect your town or state, OR your lives. Below are links to various information on B.S.L. and where you can find help fighting this unfair battle.

Man makes dogs bite By Robin Tierney
Originally published Jan 31 2001 With an eye on irresponsible and abusive dog owners, Del. Kenneth Montague Jr. of Baltimore City will introduce a bill in the General Assembly to increase penalties for intentional animal abuse, acknowledging the demonstrated link between animal abuse and human violence. Companion legislation will be introduced by Sen. Philip Jimeno of Anne Arundel County. AS SOME PIT BULLS make local headlines, others quietly serve as family pets, therapy dogs, search-and-rescue partners even teachers.
Petunia For example, Petunia visits area classrooms with the Greenbelt-based Partnership for Animal Welfare's Responsible Pet Owner (RPO) program. "Petunia waited while 40 children petted her," said Towson parent Karen Sindall. "I've never seen a more warm, loving and patient dog." Yet Petunia is a pit bull, a name applied to several breeds originally bred for strength, agility, dog-fighting and worth noting absence of aggression toward humans, because handlers had to work closely with the dogs. Today, bull breeds score high on temperament tests, and the majority are family pets.

Transfer enforcement of animal welfare legislation away from the and best known ofanimal Rights groups PeTA supports breedspecific bans, and the trapping and
In 1975, the book, Animal Liberation , written by Australian philosopher Peter Singer, was published, and the modern Animal Rights Movement was launched. It is important for all dog and cat lovers - whether breeder, exhibitor, or pet owner - to understand the difference between “Animal Rights” and the more traditional “Animal Welfare.” Animal Welfare is the concept that humans have the obligation to ensure that the animals in our society, whether pets, livestock, research subjects or wildlife, are treated humanely and appropriately in our interactions with them. Animal Rights is the concept that non-human animals have the right, by virtue of their existence, to not be used by humans for any purpose at all - neither food, clothing, entertainment nor research. In 1987, the following agenda was formulated by Animal Rights Activists for inclusion in the US Greens party platform, and may be considered the framework of the Animals Rights Movement. Pay particular attention to #10. This is a summarized version; a more complete version can be found in The Hijacking of the Humane Movement (see Recommended Reading at end of essay)

It took three baths to reveal the beautiful Australian Shepherd underneath coats of reddish mud and dust. After several weeks with us in foster care, a longer period with a great Aussie Rescue foster family, and a brief inappropriate placement, Harley went to his "forever" home with someone who appreciates him as he deserves. Who could possibly not appreciate a dog like this? Yes, all three of the pictures below also show rescued dogsone from a shelter, two from breed rescue. Right: Kohl, who arrived with severe demodectic mange and bad hips, belonged to a student who couldn't cope with his terrible health problems. As a responsible owner who wanted the best for the dog, he listed Kohl with German Shepherd Rescue. The picture you see here was taken nearly eight years later. Today Kohl is going strong at nearly ten years of age. At left (click for larger picture): Kirsten, who was found tied to a shelter fence, and weighing only 43 pounds, regained excellent health. She lived several more happy years despite a chronic condition, Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency.

    The authors of these references and links are responsible for the accuracy of the information and opinions expressed and Feline Welfare does not validate any of these.

    The German Welfare Laws
    Why should German Welfare laws interest anyone outside Germany? First and foremost, any welfare laws and rules should be of immediate interest to anyone involved in pet breeding and pet keeping. There is some controversy over the proposals published by the German Ministry for Consumer Protection (BMVEL) in Bonn in October 2000. In a booklet, a number of problem breeds and varieties were identified. In 1995, a Multilateral Consultation took place to discuss the European Convention for the Protection of Pet Animals and a resolution was published which included extensive guidelines for the revision of breeding policies. These guidelines form the basis for the proposed German breeding regulations.

    ADOA was the first national organization of dog owners and fanciers working together to protect our dogs and our rights. ADOA stands for the American Dog Owners Association, Inc., which was incorporated in November, 1970, in Detroit, Michigan by Duncan Wright and eighty-five individuals who wanted to stop dog fighting in their area. ADOA is a NON-PROFIT organization - it's only sources of income are Dues and Donations. It's expenses are many and varied with the administration of the Canine Defense Fund consuming a large portion of ADOA's income. ADOA's office and its President are headquartered just outside of Albany, New York, with five (5) Vice-Presidents, a Secretary, twenty-five (25) Directors, five (5) Club Directors, four(4) Executive Committee Members and Counsel geographically located throughout the United States. All are volunteer!. (The only paid employees are an Executive Director, an Administrative Assistant and a part-time Financial Manager.) Any ADOA member who has a problem has someone in their area to contact for help. "The American Dog Owners Association preserves the special relationship between dogs and mankind by protecting and defending the rights of responsible dog ownership; opposing detrimental and supporting appropriate regulation for dog owners; educating the public; and promoting standards for safe and civilized treatment of dogs."
