I am a big opponent of specific dog breed banning. Most breed based legislature is based on unfounded reasoning and has little foundation in facts.
Politician’s drafting these rules have little to no knowledge of the dog breeds or dog behavior.
No breed is vicious or dangerous by nature. Some breeds are bigger, stronger and have a higher defensive and protection drive. Some breeds posses a higher game drive. However, it is up to the owner to socialize, train and practice responsible dog ownership.
Thus, in my opinion, the method of specific dog breed banning is wrong and fruitless and only leads to pushing some breeds into underground in to the hands of the people who will use them for wrong and abusive reasons.
An appropriate approach would be to educate and license dog owners and to promote dog training and obedience training!!!
