Frequently Asked Questions

What is Breed Specific Legislation (BSL)?

Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) are laws against the ownership of specific breeds, mostly targeting the group of dogs commonly referred to as "Pit Bulls". All dogs of a specified breed are considered dangerous/illegal regardless of temperament, training, and disposition of the individual dog. Often, even dogs that have "characteristics" of the specified breeds are included in these laws as well, so even if your dog is not one of the breeds listed it may still be in danger of confiscation and euthanasia simply based on the dog's appearance.

Are Pit Bulls bad with kids?

Kids should always be supervised while around dogs, however Rufus proves that Pit Bulls can be excellent companions for our children. Here is a video of him helping children learn to read in a reading program. Often children that are too shy to read aloud will relax enough to read to a dog that is not there to judge them, just like these children don't judge Rufus because of what he looks like.

Are criminals the only people who own Pit Bulls?

Think only criminals own Pit Bulls? Let's explore this a bit and meet some real life Pit Bull owners to see what kind of background they have. These interviews are not staged at all and are completely off the cuff. It's kind of a long video, but I wanted to get a number of people in there so it wasn't just one example. Watch the video, and then let me know if you still believe only criminals want these dogs for the wrong reasons. FYI - These are the people and dogs you will be hurting when Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is passed.
