    Ok good. Cause otherwise I would have said she was possibly stressed already, but all good.

    I don't think it is labelling...I think it is responsible especially since her dog comes under the prescribed breed Law.

    If her dog comes under BSL (I have no idea what breed her dog is to be truthful) then she was breaking the law in the first place. Dogs that are declared as restricted must be muzzled at all times in public.

    I let her out when she wants to go out other than that I change the bedding around her etc........thats extremely hard! lol

    I dont want to bother her too much and am just letting her do everything on her own.

    She has lots of milk this time....THANK GOD! and seems to be a little dehydrated? drinking HEAPS! and not eating a lot. Going to vets tonight to discuss this though, paying off an account and organising her to come in with me and Bailey on Friday (bailey's vaccination is due) to have her and the pups checked over

    I understand that this is your opinion and its the law however I have my own opinion.

    I dont want to start an argument so lets leave it at that

    It wasn't an opinion. If you are deliberately flouting the law then you are a fool and you are risking your dog's life by doing so. Even the fact that you are openly stating here that you are breaking the law is a stupid thing to do. People from all over read these forums.

    I do not agree with the law, but the law states they must be muzzled when out in public. I don't agree that I should have to drive around my neighbourhood at 50kms either but again, that is the law. You are not supporting the fight against BSL by openly flouting your reponsibilites.

    Going back to your original question of "was I naive or irresponsible" - you were totally irresponsible then!

    Her dog is Pitt Bull X and you said what I wanted to say, but I didn't want to start a fight again with JTDNTB

    I walk my Male Belgian Malinois with a muzzle for his own safety. I"m guessing you have an APBT?? If so, why would you take it out without a muzzle on? I really dont care how quite these dogs may seem, when they snap its a hell of a lot worse than any other breed I can think of & thats from personnel experience. I think you, your dog & the kid are lucky she only growled.....this time. As for the mother being a "bitch"well, people are people. I was taught to NEVER touch/approach a strange dog however,even though its wrong some folk may think if the dog is unattended its friendly!?!? This breed can be great dogs in experienced hands, its a shame they are so easy to get. BTW, I never leave my dogs unattended in a public place, just not worth the B/S & please dont take this as an attack on you, I know where you are coming from, believe me!!!!

    Like I said I don't want to fight.....this is how I look at it......

    My vet has stated that she is NOT A PIT BULL!!!!! others however have their own opinion.

    She looks like many bully breeds do however but does this mean that EVERY SINGLE DOG that has some form of bully type dog in them should be walking around with a muzzle on???

    I understand completely where you are coming from Anne but should I follow all the BSL laws when my VET has stated that their is no need as she is not a pit bull? She is not registered as a Restricted breed as the vet is insistent that she isn't one.


    I think this is confusion at its best for me to be quite honest and I know that everyone has their own opinions including the government.
