    A dog is what you make it. ANY dog can be vicious. ANY dog can attack.

    Ok so only dog fighters need BSL do they?
    Lets see.....
    Bull Terrier
    Akita
    Shar Pei
    Dogo Argentino
    Presa Canario(sp?)
    Kerry Blue
    Dougue de Borderex(sp?)
    and the Staffy(Staffordshire Terrier)

    BSL all those pooches and maybe I'll agree.

    I'm a bit skitzo on BSL, on one hand i support it 100% just so the breed did go underground, because that has saved the true breed by the true breed fancy, on the other hand its vexed me because all these BYB jokers sprung up breeding random hit to **** and thats whats not good for the breed.

    I realise that but hey lets look at the breed in question and look at its purpose. Very rarely do you ever hear of a pitbull coming of second best, dogs or humans.

    Why do you insist on manipulating what i wrote, i said pitfighters are no doubt PART of the reasoning behind BSL

    I disagree...not ALL breeds are alike! Some breeds were bred for specific purposes...eg pit fighting!!! SBT's in particular are very good at this type of fighting, so of course...they are different than a Golden Retriever.

    And if you are talking about BSL for all pit/dog fighting breeds...then yes, the SBT is amongst them. My problem is....it is NOT a breed specific legislation...it is a registered/unregistered bred legislation!

    If you treated any breed the way fighters treat their dogs, they would end up the same. Some more *dangerous* than others(because of their size) but they would all wanna do the same thing. IMO.

    Explain to me the registered/unregistered concept

    Ok - so it the way to get around BSL to register all owners?

    Would you be happy, as an owner, having to sit a test and being tested specifically about your breed as well before you could own it? This is regardless of whether you currently own the breed or not.

    Well, it would effectively destroy most instances of furry Christmas pressies.
