    What breed could it be next?? That is what always worries me that something unrelated to myself and my dog could cause it to be labelled dangerous. Some stupid owners do like to make out their breed is tough and those owners should be banned!!! Around our area every young punk with a ute and tatts has a staffy that they like to think is an extension of their manhood. LOSERS!!

    I think it's all been said... I think is BSL is completely useless and is seen as a quick fix for a problem that is not restricted to just one breed. The fact that it affects innocent dogs makes me livid.

    Seeing as the powers to be have restricted certain dog breeds, the why don't the restrict certain social and ethnic groups?

    Wouldn't the money wasted on this "project" be better spent eradicating BYBs, restricting the sale of animals in pet shops and restrict the owners who can purchase these dogs, it wouldn't be hard if they spent more time on the people who ARE doing the wrong thing.

    I can't see many good registered breeders letting pups go to irresponable homes.

    BSL frustrateds me, it gives the general public the wrong views on certain breed causing them to have very biased opinions

    I think, the BSL ive seen, is a blanket ruling for ALL dogs of that breed for the state that you are in. Have also fallen foul of BSL as an owner of a rottie in QLD.
    As i have tended to have the same breed for my dog through the years, i know, that they have been different temperaments, different skills, different problems for each.
    I think that some breeds can become too popular, badly bred, and face crisis, unless breeders do their job properly.
    Im on the back foot as to 'if' they can however. Market forces demand the pup. The dogs that win the show certificates at my local GSD branch. Ive not met one dog yet that id like to own as a pet, yet champions abound. Go figure?

    If you consider a known problematic breed in aus currently, the rottie. (my favourite dog breed) There are now more back yard rotties than any well bred ones. With some major flaws in their gene pool that cause problems. Id love to see a law passed whereby in australia, only certified breeders, with the backing of the ACC can allow their rotties to remain in breeding state. All others, that have not been 'ok'd' to breed from should be desexed as pups.

    So i guess, im for and against.

    That concept would be benificial with all breeds, but would only work and authorities really cracked down on finding and stopping BYBs, but if done right it could make a huge difference in the lives of a lot of dogs, plus benefit the breeds

    It's rubbish, on one hand larger, more powerful breeds are used in rescue and defence to save human lives, on the other hand people want them destroyed because of a few idiots that want them for the wrong reasons.

    Unfortunatly bernie a law like that can never work, nor owner licencing etc etc, perhaps something like that in a metropolitan area it could work to a degree but BYB's etc are here forever more. Australia is an extreamly large place and to police it would be an impossibility.
