What can I go, HELP please...
Cassie McKenzie
here's my story...Gosh, this really hits home. I received a notice on my apartment door yesterday 4/2/12 claiming that my dog "resembled a "pit bull mix"" which aren't allowed at my apartment complex along with several other Friendly breeds. I couldn't even begin to tell you how much hair I've pulled, how many tears I've shed and how many people I've asked for help from. It's now 4/3/12 I have two weeks left with my "Bruin" before my apartment forces me to let him go. Mixed or not he is the sweetest thing to ever happen to me and I to him ( I hope :) ) The people who run my apartment complex are no dog expert, no Cesar Milan... who are they to deem what breed my dog is or how friendly they think he is capable to be. Why must we Americans hold on to such ignorance, when we are mutts ourselves. Mixed breeds if you will. I am proud of my mixed heritage, which makes me a true American. Bruin is a gorgeous mix of Boxer and Standfordish Terrier A.K.A. Pit Bull. Stop the discrimination.

Sharing is caring...
A southern California family's apartment burns down, and they have a rough time finding a new one due to apartment landlords refusing to house their dog. The only reason they got out of that fire alive? Their pit bull, Diamond.

Hey fellas!
I'm a new member to this comm and, unfortunately, already have reason to appeal to you all for help.
I'm from New Orleans. This week has seen tragedy in the form of two separate incidents of injury, due to irresponsible owners not properly supervising their dogs. (Article: www.wdsu.com/news/23035700/detail.html)
There is a survey on that page, that lovers of bully breeds are trailing in votes. There's also a comment section. Mine is so far the only comment in support of bullys and against BSL. (My Comment)Collapse )
Could anybody spare a few moments/comments?
I appreciate your time!

Elgin OKs ordinance without pit bull designation
30 days
Great news... except for the threat at the end. Elgin must be pretty crime free and boring if all he has to do is watch pit bulls every waking hour.

Elgin City Council approved a watered-down version of a new animal control ordinance Wednesday in front of about 275 people who were in attendance to protest the specific restrictions regarding pit bulls.

Applause rang out through the Heritage Ballroom in The Centre in downtown Elgin when the ordinance was unanimously approved without the references that automatically labeled all pit bull breeds as dangerous.

Dandridge, RN

To Tennessee Residents
The City of Dandridge recently passed a second reading of a breed discriminatory ordinance to ban certain breeds within the city limits. The third and FINAL reading is October 13, 2009, at 7:00 p.m. You can help stop this breed discriminatory law from passing!

Dandridge residents need your help to prevent laws that prohibit them from owning certain breeds of dogs. The breeds include Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers, and the ordinance may even incorporate language prohibiting any dog resembling a dog in what the city calls the “pit bull terrier family”.
