well THS (Toronto Humane Society) has said that dog bite numbers have not gone down since the Legislation was introduced, many APBT’s, bully’s and mixes including Staffordshire terriers have been killed because of it, we can’t go back but we can certainly move forward hopefully with dog friendly, owner accountability legislations instead.
Now for my nazi counterpart in Denver, a Canadian ruling won’t mean much now, but certainly down the road it will pave the way for other provinces, other countries to follow. What that will mean for my boy in Denver is he will finally have to accept that number one, he’s a dictator, and number two we “The People” want our rights and our dogs back! For the dogs that have been euthanized already, well I just feel sick knowing that they died because of irresponsibility and hate, and bites did not go down, and they died basically for nothing! There were still other breeds living with the same types of irresponsible owners that gave way to more attacks.
We will have to wait and see if the repeal goes through, but if it does I wonder if all the Pit Bull owners that moved out of province to save their dogs, owners who had to change their lives, and livelihoods, how will they feel and will they return to their home towns? Only time will tell.
Until then I will not celebrate just yet, but fingers crossed! and toes!
