Tougher Crackdown Over Dangerous Dogs?

Over the years, vicious and sometimes fatal attacks by dangerous dogs have prompted repeated attempts to target Pit Bulls and Rottweilers.

The Daley administration and Schulter have steadfastly opposed breed-specific bans.

...."It's not the animals that are the problem. ... It's the individual. This is an attempt to do something in those rare circumstances where the owners do not care."

blondes not bombs
I currently live in washington state, but we are moving to palm beach county in florida soon and I'm wondering if pit bulls are legal there. We're moving in with my mom who lives in Boca Raton and we have a one year old pit bull named shady. If we can't take her with us, we're gong to drop her off with my husband's brother in california.

If you don't know, can you at least direct me to a website where I can find out? thanks!

Trinidad group decries dog ban
Animals - Rubber duckies

THE Government is barking up the wrong tree by implementing the current Dangerous Dogs Act, a group called the Responsible Dog Owners of Trinidad And Tobago (RODTT) has said.

Spokesman for the group Ganesh Khoon Khoon told the Express last week that while the members had no problem with the idea of legislation to prevent acts of violence by, and to the dogs, this Act sought to wipe out the dogs completely.

"If you look at the Act carefully, you would see that they are trying to get rid of them by spaying and neutering. These dogs have a life span of about ten to 12 years, so basically in the next ten to 12 years, we will not have any pitbulls or tosas and that is not right or fair," he said.

The Act, which was passed in 2000 by the then-UNC administration, but has yet to be proclaimed, prohibits people from importing or breeding dangerous dogs, such as the pitbull terrier or any dog bred from the pitbull terrier and having the dominant characteristics of that dog, the fila brasileiro or any dog bred from the fila brasileiro and having the dominant characteristics of that dog and the Japanese tosa or any dog bred from the Japanese tosa and having the dominant characteristics of that dog.
