People get so much help from dogs. The dogs on those lists, when owned by the right people, serve a tremendous purpose. For some, it's just companionship and being a sport buddy. For others, it's a Pit Bull that hunts with people. For others, it's a Dane that provides mobility assistance. Goldens, Labs, Belgians and GSDs are by far the most common assistance dogs, SAR dogs and police service dogs. Heelers, aussies, ACDs, 'Houlas, even Filas are often irreplacable farm workers - I think it's absurd that they banned nearly every commonly used herding breed. Most people couldn't have livestock without their livestock guardians like Caucasians, Pyrenees, Akbash and Anatolians. People still use Huskies (Sibes and Alaskan) for transportation, people still use Dobermans for personal protection... By eliminating these dogs, people are eliminating their hugely underappreciated helpers.

Ridiculous, the lot of it. And I don't even know what to say about the Pug. People must be prejudiced against squishy noses, because other than killing by cuteness I can't think of anything dangerous about a Pug.

73.

The GSD is listed twice, Alsatian Shepherd, and as the GSD.

The ACD is also represented on the list as the Blue Heeler.

What is the source of the list? Until then... this is just anti-hysteria hysteria!

Just goes to show what happens when you let the cat people make the laws....

I'm not trying to make light of the whole thing, I mean...Aussies are on there...but it's laughable to see what people think of sometimes.

Wow very interesting. Some of those breeds are the sweetest dogs!

I will say this about Golden's- the one that lives next door broke out of his house a few weeks ago and attacked my dog, who was on a leash going potty a few houses away. My dog had some bad bruises and scrapes to his back leg from the scuffle. I was shocked, never expected that sort of dog to come charging at us like that. Like a poster above mentioned- it is all about the owners, really.
