Default BSL ALERT Minnesota!

Don't know if this has been posted before, but I was browsing the web and found this on a rottweiler/pit bull rescue's website:

Quote:
On Friday, June 15, 2007 St. Paul Rep. John Lesch held a press conference to annouce that in 2008 he will propose a ban that will outlaw the ownership of 5 so-called "dangerous breeds", including Rottweilers, "Pit Bulls", Akitas, Chows, Wolf-hybrids...and ANY mix thereof in the state of MN.

http://www.arottalove.org/bsl.htm

Can you imagine how many innocent family dogs this would hurt?

There was a meeting on the 24th about the breed ban. I couldn't go, but two of the higher-ups in our rescue went, and they said Lesch was a total a**, he didn't want to answer any questions, he kept skipping around the point, that sort of stuff...

I really wish I could have gone...maybe could have brought Jackson and Holly...

What?!

That's just ridiculous. My uncle has a rottweiler and he is such a sweet dog. Gosh I hope boxers don't get included in that.

They aren't...at least not yet. But make sure that your boxer is never mistaken for a "Pit Bull" or a "Pit Bull mix"...

My APBT has been mistaken for a boxer, and my former boxer foster has been incorrectly called a "Pit bull"...

That's what I'm worried about. Who knows if more breeds will get included in it, and people are so stupid when it comes to identifying breeds anyway, even if boxers aren't on the list there's probably someone who would mistake them as something else that is included.

Well, this will include my dog as she has that "pittie" look. Now, I'm worried.

-Wolves/Wolf-Hybrids
-Chow-Chows
-Akitas
-Rottweilers
-"Pit Bulls"

Including mixes of any of the aforementioned breeds. Technically, "Pit Bulls" aren't a breed, no more then "Retriever" is a breed. The dogs included in the "Pit Bull" grouping are generally American Pit Bull Terriers, American Staffordshire Terriers, and Staffordshire Bull Terriers. However, Indian Bull Terriers, Argentine Dogos, American Bulldogs, Bull Terriers, and Perro de Presa Canarios are also frequently mistaken for "Pit Bulls".
