I have three dogs 2 bullies and one half lab half bully ...all rescues all wonderful and all well loved by neighbors and friends...no one treats me like it is strange for having these dogs ..except the odd patient I care for who sees a picture on the wall of my office and says "I hate those dogs I can not believe a nurse would have them" I just let it go with a comment like "oh you are so missing out by feeling that way" and care for them ..they do not know any better...
My husband came home upset the other day because we live in one town and the neighboring town where we get our tags is now putting into effect a BSL! We are not sure how this will affect us or the other folks in our town who have bullies ..on our walks we see quite a few folks who I think I am going to have to start talking to ...
My husband plans to try to take some action before this is put into affect but who knows ...I know why they are pushing it in this town ..it is crime ridden and there are backyard bullie breeders who have those horrible spray painted signs out saying "PIT BULL PUPPIES $100 OBO"
I wish they could legislate backyard breeders is what I wish! not the breed!!!
I am a bit worried but know there is no way in hell I am giving up my dogs for any reason ..every one of them came to me after a horrible back yard breeding took it's toll ... being near death and saved by a wonderful organization ..I feel fortunate I can give them a "forever" home full of love ..and no one I know would want me to loose these dogs...
can anyone tell me what you know about when these legislations take effect in the town where your dogs are registered ..not where they reside? ..this town just took on our pet registration a year ago from ours ...if they prohibit Pit Bulls ...even if I do not live there will I not be albe to register my dog?
I am going to make calls this week but wanted to ask if anyone else had had this happen to them.
Please feel free to direct me to a thread about this if I missed it
thanks so much for any and all advice here
I am worried, bummed and need a strategy
I really like keeping things out there about pit bulls I want my dogs registered I want folks to see them and be around them and know they are wonderful dogs!!!
