    Singapore: Changes to breed-specific dangerous dog laws


    In Singapore, Presa Canarios have been moved from the Second Schedule Part II list to Part I list, and new restrictions on Part I and Part II dogs have been added.

    Second Schedule Part I dog breeds include the following: ”pit bull” (American Pit Bull Terrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, American Bulldog), Akita, Neapolitan Mastiff, Tosa, Dogo Argentino, Fila Brasileiro, Presa Canario, Boerboel, and any mixes of these breeds.

    Part I dog restrictions include the following (includes new changes to dog law):

    * Muzzled and leashed in public
    * Microchipped
    * Spayed/neutered
    * Liability insurance of $100,000 minimum
    * Only one Part I dog may be kept on a premises (new restriction)
    * Obedience training (new restriction)
    * A $5,000 deposit that is forfeited (and must be renewed) if the owner fails to comply with any of these restrictions
    * May not be imported

    Second Schedule Part II dog breeds include the following: Mastiffs (Cane Corso, Bull Mastiff, Dogue de Bordeaux), Bull Terrier, Doberman Pinscher, German Shepherd and related breeds (Belgian Shepherd Dog, East European Shepherd Dog), Rottweiler, and mixes of these breeds.

    Part II dog restrictions include the following (includes new changes to dog law):

    * Muzzled and leashed in public
    * Microchipped (new restriction)
    * Liability insurance of $100,000 minimum (new restriction)
    * Obedience training (new restriction)
    * Only one Part II dog may be kept on a premises (new restriction)
    * A $2,000 deposit that is forfeited (and must be renewed) if the dog owner fails to comply with any of these restrictions (new restriction)

    Restrictions similar to those in Part II will also apply to any dog that has engaged in an unprovoked attack that causes injury to a person or animal. (New restriction)
