Now that is just so sad.
I am glad I asked as I think other would have asked to.
If they had this dog I really think that they must give the owners the time to make these modifications to their yards so this would then deem theor dog safe.
So unfair, from that reply.
But the legislation relating to how to confine your restricted breed dogs is a few years old, isn't it?
ps there is no risk of it as my dog is a stafforshire bull terrier, just making a point!
Next will be the GDS's, Doberman, Rottweiler or any Breed that will possibly show aggression due to ownership mismanagement.....This will just have a snowball effect.
I feel this is just the beginning of the end of free dog ownership.
It was wrong that the dog attacked the little girl. But that is saying that every person should be treated as a potential killer, because so many people kill people. Not sure what the answer is, but I feel this is not the way
Pets are forever
If you want to post then post, but don't post to get people to answer,
To your, I think you mean this.
Now I know you are going to go looking for posts that I have done.
Go ahead but I will not be dragged into it.
Just post responsible things and none of this I think you mean this.
There is no proof "The councils in Victoria are on a search and destroy mission. "
The Councils are staffed by people doing their job. They are not heartless automatons.
The decision to PTS Buck was down to his owners. Rather than do what was required to modify the backyard they chose to PTS Buck.
Save your anger for his owners.
The little boy lost his friend because his parents choose that route rather than conform to the law.
Did these people ever consider the responsibility of owning a restricted breed. I bet not. I know who I would label as heartless bastards. I have spent thousands on my various mutts of mine when it would have been much cheaper and easier to take the PTS option.
What, these people couldn't have taken a loan?
How much would it have really cost to make their yard conform to the law?
By the way the law for how to keep a dangerous breed has been around for some time, it's just now that they have to comply. Easier to PTS their sons pet. These are the sort of irresponsible dog owners that the legislation is designed for.
Good lesson for your son guys.
Because of this is was either take their dog and put him to sleep in their arms with his loving family nearby or let him be seized and euthanised by the council.
At least Buck's owners had the balls to sit with him in his last moments, to pat him, to love him before he left, unlike some of the ferals who have dumped their dogs at the pound to die.
Oh and BTW - The Vic Govt have themselves called it a "Search and Destroy mission".
