    Hi Webster. I'm sorry to hear about your dogs being impounded. The laws just seem to have no regard for the dogs' well being.

    I haven't heard of any members here who have personally gotten into trouble because of these laws. Fingers crossed that stays that way but I do hope that you get some result in your battle against these ludicrous laws. I would love to hear more about it.

    Sorry Webster my opinion hasn't changed, if dogs had been registered on time they wouldn't be in this situation no ifs, buts or maybes.

    True, but(and i don't say this as an excuse for not registering, just pointing out how silly the laws are) they would be confined to an enclosure at home, they would have to be muzzled and onlead anytime they're off their premises. How do you excersise a dog like an APBT as much as it requires whilst onlead(remembering this is ultimately a working breed. Similarly how would you excersise a border collie sufficiently onlead?)? I personally believe that a big majority of attacks by this breed are caused by dogs that don't get enough physical and mental excersise

    Unfortunately there are many silly laws that I don't agree with either but if chose not to abide by them then I'll no doubt face a penalty as have the owners in this case.
    The only way to change any of this is through your local MPs but I doubt the breed would have the supporting numbers to do such, not saying that makes it right.

    News flash guys, APBTs have been banned in Vic since 2005, So technically there should only be 7 year and older dogs inpacted by so called new laws! These people shouldnt have even owned a red nose pit but like so many thought they could get around old laws..

    "DAVID and Megan Thurston say they have been devastated by a decision to seize their pet pit bull terrier, Butch.
    The six-year-old red nose American pit bull terrier was taken from the Thurstons’ home in Canadian on Friday afternoon, just hours after the amnesty for dog owners to register restricted breeds came to a close."


    Gee I dont know...perhaps read the beging of the thread (name calling removed by mod H).

    I believe the words 'red' and 'nose' are adjectives modifying the nouns 'Pit' and 'Bull'.

    Which is why we did not understand your incorrect use of the 4 words as nouns.

    It seems from the story council became aware of the dog and where it lived from the owners TRYING to register it. Deceitfully done council.
