    One wonders if this isn't the beginning of the end ? Now being that they have passed that mandatory spay/neuter law in California Nevada is trying to follow it.
    I wonder if dogs will not be able to be owned one day and only seen in zoos and pictures and we can all say remember when.........

    On the lighter side since they have the ACD listed and then listed the Blue Heeler does that mean Whiskey would be safe ? He is a red Heeler not noted on the list and since they seem to not know that Heelers are ACDs well? I know I will fix that I will revert back to them being known as The Queensland Heeler again and when they figure that out I will say they are Hall's Heelers lol

    Although the list is pathetic and scary, I can't help but be amused that the Belgian Malinois, Tervuren, and Sheepdog are on the list, but the Laekenois is not. Short and long coats make dogs dangerous, but wire coats make them safe?

    I live in area in which pits are banned, and I have a neighbor who is illegally keeping a dog-aggressive pit. Yet, this neighbor is one of the few neighbors with whom I have no problem--because he keeps his dog on a freakin' leash, unlike most of the people here in the Land of Unleashed Shih-tzus. Owner behavior is what matters, not the breed of dog.

    Riot, it would be nice if they at least had the courtesy to spell it right. Or is this an alternate spelling?

    Ooooh, I got stickied. I feel special now, thanks Renee.

    I sent in my location and my mom's to be added to the vigil. One thing that they didn't specify in this post is that they need your zip code as well.

    Thanks for denigrating the effort. I've lived with BSL, so I don't care if its hysteria or not, I'm on board for anything that may help. It doesn't seem like hysteria when you're leaving your home in order to keep your dog. It says the source of the list is the RDOWS. If you have questions, why not ask them?

    RDOWS does not source their list.

    I don't care who wrote it, or for what cause. Its all Machiavellian B.S.

    Until people learn to lay out facts and supporting statements, this world will get nowhere beyond BSL and ill- written lists.

    So until you get a verified and certified list you will not take one minute out of your day to send an email that just might help?

    I got a reply to my email BTW. We are adding our little flag to the map and small gesture as that is I am gald I made it.

    Ugh. I despise BSL. :(
    And, yes, every breed has the potential to be dangerous, even your stereotypical, always playful, never-aggressive golden retriever.

    Hi Bahamutt, unable to open up the sight you posted. Wanted to see specific list you found, of states banning specific breeds, to date. Says webpage has expired?

    Who wrote the list?

    Seems to be plucked from thin air.

    Its supposed to be RDOWS.

    The list however is not on the site, nor any mention on how they formulated it. While I find it likely that it is in fact correct (minus the 73 dogs instead of 75, as I pointed out) I do not like the idea that I can not find supporting evidence for their creation.

    I have to agree with this. If you're going to protest something you had better know what it is you're protesting inside and out because those who are for the legislation will know their side.

    Pugs?? Who bans a pug? I'd want to know what municipalities ban which dogs and the legislation index number with exact wording of the ban legislation. Without that information any protest appears to be a knee-jerk reaction and lacks credibility.

    I don't like breed legislation either, but if you're going to fight something you have to be credible and you can't be that if someone just hands you a list without any information.

    If the list has made one person go digging, it's served a worthwhile purpose.

    Bahah, I honestly and sincerely don't think anyone here wants to denigrate the effort. However, you can't fight BSL with a list that has no source. That makes it hearsay. It would not bode well in an argument at, say, a public hearing. I think that's what everyone is trying to say to you. Nobody means harm to you or your sweet dog.

    Whether its ill-written or not, the fact remains that this list could very well become a reality if something doesn't change

    You said it much better than me.

    Its one of my pet peeves, I suppose. While I do completely sympathize with the sentiment, its ingrained in my head that the only proper way to state something is with a book of footnotes and citations attached. I'm one of the more skeptical people that anyone will ever meet, so I thoroughly enjoy a page of supporting documentation to anything stated ;)
