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.
