It will still condemn non "pitbulls" if you look at the legislation that was enacted in QLD it was a dismal failure and the same type of legislation, based on looks and enacted as a sweeping legislation net to class all "pitbulls", types and crosses of under the BSL. It caught up many Staffordshire x breeds.
I understand totally and support that people don't want dog attacks happening and honestly only a sub human would want that, but how will BSL change the fact that there are feral "owners" that don't care about their dogs or the people they attack weather it be a GSD, Mastiff, Bull breed, Labrador, mongrel, x breed etc, these cretins move from one breed to the next and will use them as a penis extension and status symbol of their idiocy as they always have.
All BSL will do is prohibit a breed until the idiots start "owning" the next type of breed then what? do we kill all of that breed as well? and breed them out of existence so on and so on? or would the government be better of doing some real legislation that worked and targeted owners and conditions of ownership of all breeds to stop the problem before it started? as well as a legislation that would drop numbers of dumped and miss treated animals.
ALL kittens are devil spawn wrapped in cuteness!
All pedigree dogs ARE safe so long as they have ANKC papers. That includes SBT, Amstaff, etc etc.
They are specifically talking about Amstaff in the legislation as they are the breed that have the closest resemblance to a PB. So they are saying if your dog is an Amstaff then you need to prove it is an Amstaff. If you have a Xbreed Amstaff then basically it is automatically a Pitbull because you can't prove otherwise.
The breeds that should be worried especially are American Bulldogs because they are not an ANKC recognised breed which means no pedigree papers for them and they will meet the standards.
Clubsprint if you really think that SBT x are going to be fine then your head is stuck further into the sand then I expected. Read the standard it includes dogs 14 kgs - 36 kgs and 43 - 53 cms. Those weight/height ranges will easily include most SBT x's as well as many other breeds, and as SBT (and other breeds) look very similar in appearance, including similar head shapes, short coat and muscular build it won't take much for them to be declared resctricted.
FYI - Even if your dog is microchipped, desexed and registered (lets say as a Staffy X) then they can still come to your house and declare your dog a PB based on its appearance.
And you may have to make changes to your fencing and put a sign up. It doesn't mean you automatically lose your dog.Of course if your dog is not registered.......big mistake but no-one can pretend ignorance. It's been no secret.
Does my dog rush or bite people, well the only rushing is him running to say hello and no he's never bitten anyone. No he's not a problem barker. Depending on how close to the standard he needs to be he possibly does meet the standard(there's photo's of him in the dog photo's thread, go look and you tell me!). He is a staffordshire bull terrier without papers. I have a neighbour who has reported several of my other neighbours to the council for stupid little things, so its a real risk that he will report my dog. I have met one of the rangers from my local council and she seemed to be a nice lady, but who knows what will happen if they come and look my dog over.
There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.
