Nope, Vermont is another state that does not allow laws based on breed of dog; dangerous dog laws can only apply to a dog with a history of dangerous behavior.

The definition of dangerous dog here other than dogs that have a bite history is

"a Pit Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, Pit Bull,
Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire
Terrier, or any dog of mixed breeding which
includes any of these breeds; or any dog which
has the appearance and physical characteristics
predominantly conforming to the standards for
any of the above breeds"

Also, this is what gets to me. It says that ALL dogs of the above mentioned breeds must be on a leash and muzzled at all times unless in your own private property.

What do you guys think about that law?? I don't think all pit mixes should be muzzled when out in public. That's just ridiculous...
Yeah I thought it was funny when I saw that in the bylaws too. I've never seen a muzzled pit bull here. Seen them at the dog park though lol

That's Richmond, I think Coquitlam or Burnaby has a similar one. (Vancouver I believe has no pit bull bylaw)

Oklahoma prohibits BSL however some cities try to pass it anyways. I know Midwest City had a big lawsuit over their pit bull ban and it was ruled that the city could not ban the breed.

There was an attempt to remove the part of the law that disallowed BSL but it was also struck down.

I think it's everywhere in Greater Vancouver. I checked the Richmond website where I live.

Just checked, Metro Vancouver has the same by-laws.

"In the City of Vancouver, any of the five pit bull breeds and cross breeds are automatically considered a vicious dog under the Animal Control By-Law."

" Vicious dogs are defined as any dog with a known propensity, tendency or disposition to attack without provocation other domestic animals or humans; any dog which has bitten another domestic animal or human without provocation; or a Pit Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, Pit Bull, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier or any dog of mixed breeding which includes any of the aforementioned breeds. Regulations pertaining to vicious dogs require the animals to be muzzled in public or confined either indoors or in an enclosed pen when on private property."

I believe all of Greater Vancouver to my knowledge has one. Metro Vancouver definitely has one. I just checked. It's the exact same as Richmond.

I don't believe we do. I just moved into this city, so I could be wrong, though.

I was browsing and looking for information on this. Washington is such a nanny state.The city I live in though, does not have any ban, but there sure are a lot in other cities. In fact, the city next to me has a ban. I was surprised that many of the places were in central and eastern Wa. where it is far more countryish and more conservative...farm type people who you'd think would be up in arms about this type of thing where a government entity can dictate what kind of dog someone can and can not have. Maybe there are just more ignorant people who fall for this dangerous breed stuff. I don't know.
I was reading about one city, Royal City where you can't even drive through with a Rottweiler in your car. Good heavens! What a dictatorship we're getting to be. What if it's in a crate and it's lower than the windows... and they can't see the dog? LOL.

What happens if you happen to be passing through a city with a pit bull ban by car?? What if there's no other way for you to get to wherever you need to go with your dog?

Really a person can't be expected to go through all the cities and go around all the ones with pit bans to get to where they want!!!
