When asked, I refer to my two shelter rescues as "Wonder Dogs"-- everyone always wonders what they are.When speaking to people about Buddy in regards to BSL here, I refer to her as a "mutt with characteristics substantially similar to a pitbull type dog".

The "small group of citizens" who circulated that petition should be incredibly ashamed of themselves. How humilitating for this town-- what is lower than taking away a disabled person's assistance dog? Shame, shame, shame.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Reading his story and your comments keeps him close to my heart. I miss him still every day. I work with pets and their owners for a living. A client wondered whether I was worried about who would own these dogs if the ban was repealed. I told him that irresponsible owners are prevalent in every breed.
And it's the truth, it isn't the dogs of ANY breed that are dangerous to society, it is the humans that need to be held responsible. Poor socialization, lack of training and exercise and a gross misunderstanding of dogs needs and body language are responsible for over 90% of dog bites.
With the tri-party support of Bill 16, Ontario has never been so close to having the ban repealed. Legislation needs to be put into place to protect people from dog bites, but thus time it needs to be directed at the other end of the leash.
Please share this story, and ask everyone to sign the petition in Bill 16 posted on MPP Randy Hilliers website.
