Thread: Victoria is Completly ****ed Up!

    If you own a dog that fits the approved standard for restricted breed dogs you will need to comply with Victorian legislation relating to the control of Restricted Breed Dogs.

    The approved standard covers dogs that are of the type that are considered to be the American Pit Bull Terrier (or Pit Bull Terrier), Perro de Presa Canario (or Presa Canario), Dogo Argentino, Japanese Tosa, or Fila Brasileiro.


    From 30 September 2011 the Domestic Animals Act 1994 requires that the registration and keeping of restricted breed dogs will be limited to those dogs:
    That were in Victoria prior to 1 September 2010 and
    Were registered (as any breed) prior to 30 September 2011.

    One thing on this I would like to know is are these rules or laws going to be forced.
    In that I mean are the dog rangers going to go to all the places and make sure that these dogs are being confined in these area's.
    Cause for them to work this is exactlly what they are dgpunna have to do.
    I'm not trying to hang crap on anyone with this is it just a question.
    And so if it does offend this was not the intention of this post.

    Thats a very good Q Rid, I can tell you I never once had a compliance check in yarra city council in Richmond with old Sir. And that was when the shit really hit the fan about pure breeds, this lots more about look a likes and X breeds and down right dirty.

You cannot breed, sell or give away "pitbulls" either and they cannot be rehomed by rescues/shelters etc.

    So if you register your dog as a Pitbull you need to then comply with the above restrictions.
    I believe only Council's in QLD have full breed bans in place ie: Logan City, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Ipswich you cannot HAVE a "Pitbull" in those council areas as it is illegal.
    From 30 sep 2010, new registrations of APBT was possible due to the amnesty that was announced. The amnesty was originally due to run for 2 years, but because of recent events, it will now finish on 30 Sep 2011.

    The standard and the parts of the new law that were pushed through Parliament last week will come into effect after 30 September 2011.

    If a dog is not registered with the council at all, not registered as any breed, it is possible for the council to come into the home, seize the dog and destroy it if they believe it to be an APBT, or type or part thereof.

    If a dog is registered with the council, as what the owner believes, say Staffyx, the council can use the check sheet and call the dog a Restricted Breed. The owner then may appeal to VCAT if they do not agree with this decision. If they do not appeal VCAT, the dog then must be kept as a restricted breed. This is how it has been explained to me.

    The whole thing is very vague at the moment, and many questions still need to be answered. I think it was rushed through, and they don't really have any answers to these questions. This was a very knee jerk reaction, poorly thought out, and a very bad piece of legislation that in my opinion, well I hope so anyway, will be challenged in court.

    The only dogs that can be seized and destroyed immediately are dogs that are not registered with the council at all, and the council believe the dog to be a Restricted Breed.

    I think the most important thing at the moment is that all dogs are registered with their council. And of course, responsibly owned.

    Parliament is sitting next on the 13th of this month when I believe further laws will be introduced to Parliament regarding the penalties to a person if their dog seriously injures or kills a person.

    This is only my opinion, but I think once the fever cools, it will be as it was. I really do in regards to shelter dogs being adopted, but in the immediate climate I don't think many will be adopted out sadly.

    I know that here in Sunraysia the biggest percentage of dogs that seem to be in the pound are Staffie or the crosses of all types of them.
    So these will be the ones most at risk, as I think they may fall into this line of what is going on.
    I don't know if I am right on this as I couldn't tell if one was a staffie or a Pit. And I think the rangers here if they are to do their jobs right will need education on the facts of a Pitt or a Staffie.
    Though I just can't see our council forking out for training them to know what to look for.
