"Restricted Breeds" needs to be a thing of the past. Per the picture, my mutts are far more well-behaved than other "unrestricted" breeds.

2 years ago we busted BSL here in Lakewood, Ohio! A 10 year ban on "pit bull" type dogs was replaced with common sense breed-neutral legislation. The objective and easily enforceable laws enacted on April 2, 2018 changed Lakewood for the better. We are safer when we treat all dogs as individuals. The story is told in the amazing documentary @gtpifilm #endbsl #educatedontdiscriminate .

Do you love pit bulls? Do you hate pit bulls?  Do you think they are dangerous?  Do you think they are nanny dogs?  Then this is the page for you! 
This page is dedicated to diving 100% into pit bulls, their genetics, promoting responsible ownership, keeping people safe from attacks, and keeping dogs safe from euthanasia. 
We will not tolerate hate on this page.  We are here to explore the facts and foster conversation and debate about keeping everyone safe. 
This page is moderated by a dog trainer who works with many bully breeds, both friendly and aggressive.  I have owned bully breeds as well as seen to damage they can cause when untrained and not properly controlled.
Current Breed Specific Legislation in the United States has not shown a significant safety benefit for people, but has contributed to the euthanasia of many innocent dogs in addition to unsafe dogs. 
I am seeking to build a network of likeminded people who can eventually bring forward proposals to their local government to enact BSL that benefits dogs and people alike.  Please follow, share, and tag!

🖤 COURTESY POST 🖤
( POSTED 12/08/2019 )
It marks 28 years of #breedspecificlegislation 
A “law” which punishes #families & their #dogs simply because the #dog is born with a certain shape. Not breed, but SHAPE. 
BSL is a failed legislation which does not deliver its aim: bite prevention.
In the 21st Century we live in a society where tens of thousands of innocent dogs have been killed & tens of thousands of families have been left heartbroken. For nothing aside from typecasting and misunderstanding.

That’s not even mentioning the cost to tax payers, which will be in the hundreds of MILLIONS over this 28-year period. 
BSL does not prevent bites. Our Born Innocent research of FOIs shows that 82% of dogs seized in the UK are for their looks alone.

Bites continue to rise, on average 5% per year; with a big share being #children under 9. 
We need policies that will educate families on better husbandry & #canine interaction.

We need a joined up social & criminal policy that focuses on education, intervention & rising punishment for re-offenders.

We need legislation which will truly punish animal cruelty, including #dogfights & using dogs for status & will PROTECT rather than punish innocent #animals 
Above all, we need more research & understanding into canine/human interaction to ensure decisions are made based on peer reviewed facts; not the personal belief of certain politicians.

Buzz words such as ‘dangerous dog’; ‘vicious’; “mauled” and ‘ #pitbull attack’ are used to create fear in the public’s mind that only dogs who fit a certain criteria are a threat to our safety. It’s not only scientifically incorrect but it’s also a falsehood.

Every dog owner has a responsibility to both their dog & wider society to make sure that their dog behaves appropriately - irrespective of size.

Politicians, on the whole, are completely ignoring science, evidence & sweeping facts aside. Whilst we have seen some positive voices in parliament speaking out on this issue such as Neil Parish MP, Sue Hayman MP & Gordon Marsden MP - we need more to do the same.

Join us in the fight for preventing a 30th BSL anniversary.

We need an end to this unfair; cruel & unscientif

An update on Kylo:

If you remember three weeks ago, Kylo was playing with another dog and it escalated, resulting in a pretty gnarly puncture on the top of Kylo's head. I'm happy to say that it is healing nicely, despite more playing ripping the scab off a few times. He will definitely have a scar, but the wound is much smaller and hair is beginning to grow back!

You may notice the new marks on his face since then. Last Friday Kylo received three punctures on his lip (two outside and one inside) as well as that cut below his eye. This was from an unsolicited attack by a yellow lab. Kylo did nothing wrong and wanted no part in the fight; thankfully it was over quickly.

Antiseptic spray, wound seal, and aloe have been our best friend! Luckily Kylo has been a champ and hardly even noticed something is wrong with his face. Unfortunately, now when I take the boys in public, people assume Kojak did this to him. They ask if Kojak is aggressive and if Kylo is scared to be around him. This makes me so sad because Kojak has never once been in a fight or even attempted to bite another dog.

I'll end this with a reminder that aggression is not specific to breed. A Labrador retriever ATTACKED my pitbull for no reason. This same Labrador also attacked a German Shepard twice in the same week. I had to stop 2 out of the 3 incidents. Funny how labs are America's sweetheart, but both pitbulls and Shepard's have been blacklisted at some point in history.

Once again I say AGGRESSION IS NOT SPECIFIC TO BREED.

We hope everyone is keeping well during these crazy times. With people locked in their homes, the rescues will be suffering with limited staff. Please #foster where you can.
Also, all of our personal resources are extremely tight. Take this time to focus where you want to make donations to those #rescues that share your ethos and values; rescues you feel are legit. With WFH maybe we have a little more time to do more research.  Personally, with regard to #dogrescue, my focus is on putting an end to #breedspecificlegislation (#BSL). I have long stopped donating to rescues that are not loud, proud and genuine in the fight against this horrific legislation. In my research I have even come across rescues that have people from DEFRA on their Trustee boards. 👎🏽 This was shocking to me (as DEFRA is the #UK government agency upholding disgusting BSL), but it makes clear where this rescue's ethos lie, for example.  It does not mean they do not do anything for other dogs, but this is not the type of "rescue" I could ever support.  For me, no rescue should take lightly the euthanization of  behaviourally sound dogs just because that is what the government says.  As for dogs that are not comfortable with other #dogs, consideration in rehoming should be taken into consideration.  Dog-only home, etc. A rescue I support fights back, and whilst still operating within the law, makes clear that this is Not Right.  A rescue I support makes clear that killing #dogs exclusively based on physical measurements  is totally wrong. A rescue I support does not use ex or otherwise police dog handlers to assess dog behaviour or type; one that does is basically using turkeys and asking them to vote for Christmas. 👎🏽 If anyone has other thoughts, I would be glad to hear them.

Federal investigators found over 160 dogs covered with scars and broken bones while they were investigating 11 Georgia properties suspected to be involved in a state-wide dogfighting operation. Injured, malnourished, and distressed, some of the dogs are in desperate need of serious medical care. One overbred female pitbull was starving and chained up with broken legs, according to ABC4. We must demand justice for these dogs subjected to such a torturous criminal operation and show that dogfighting will not be tolerated. Tap the link in our profile to sign our petition urging Assistant U.S. Attorney Julia Bowen Mize to prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law. No dog is meant to fight. #EndDogFighting

Stolen from @morsaltum . Me and @potatobutt_mav at the last @miami_coalition_against_bsl Pit-Nic repping @pinupsforpitbullsinc, spreading our message and talking to people about trying to end this ancient #BSL law in Miami-Dade County! It's time that Miami and the other cities in this country with #breedspecificlegislation educate themselves and stop discrimination agaisnt dogs based on their breed or their appearance!! Most of them just want love and are innocent creatures who just want love. Take Maverick for example, he is the product of a backyard breeder who only saw him as $$$$. They were going to put him down at 6 weeks old because he was born deaf and they couldn't make money off of him. I wish I could meet those buttheads and show them what an amazingly sweet and loving dog he is! He is priceless!

I am so mad that insurance companies continue to discriminate for homeowners insurance based on breed but so happy @bestfriendsanimalsociety is doing something about it in Illinois but your help is needed. If you or someone you know resides in Illinois tell your story, as the insurance lobby is denying that breed profiling occurs. Also share with people you know who live in Illinois. Go to my website, www.stevedale.tv and find the story on this topic. On that piece there’s a link where in just s few sentences, you can write what happened to you. The individual dog matters not the breed or presumed breed. Please partake. #bsl #breedspecificlegislation #breedban #insurance #homeownersinsurance #stevedale #notedpetexpert #stevedalepettips

🚩This video is a dramitization🚩 This is such a powerful video from our friends @noah_and_lincoln. If you haven't seen it already, please take the time to watch. We should all try to spread love, ban hate #endBSL. 🚫 Noah's mom, Vivian is wearing our tee 👕 in the video.

Original post by @noah_and_lincoln.

@mayorhancock imagine having to euthanize one of your family members because there was a ban on their race and looks alone. How would you respond? Would you just sit back and do nothing? Or would you fight to change the stereotype and create laws to stop it?  We are asking  you to overturn your veto and lift the ban on pitbulls. BSL has existed in your city for decades and has not made it any safer nor has it prevented any dog bites regardless of breed.  BSL only creates more stigma, wastes taxpayers money, and murders innocent dogs. Understand that it's not the breed you should be punishing it's the deed and those who commit it. Federally, it is a felony to abuse an animal.  This should be an incentive to end the ban and start convicting those that use dogs for illegal activities or have failed to be responsible owners.  You have an opportunity to change the lives of millions of families and their dogs to stay together and be the voice for the breed. End Breed Specific Legislation once and for all. #endbsl ..
..
Although this video was very hard to do, it's a message to @mayorhancock to understand the pain people have to go thru.  Dogs are family members and the mere thought of having to put down my dog because of a law, broke me into pieces. If you haven't already, please sign the form in my stories and let your voice be heard. You don't have to live in Denver to do so. ..

Noah is okay. We live in Florida. .

To @mayorhancock - My family, all the way out here in Philadelphia, are DISGUSTED by your recent veto. By condoning breed specific legislation, you are condoning bigotry. Are certain types of people also unwelcome in your city? Here, in the City of Brotherly Love, restaurants all put bowls of water outside their doors for passing dogs- ALL passing dogs! Should they put out a separate bowl just for pit bulls? Remind you of anything?
How dare you blame the child for the sins of the parent. How do you live with yourself as you drown in your own cowardice and ignorance? The stench of what you have done has reached us here on the east coast. You had the opportunity to be just and kind, and you blew it. Shame. You have sent a message to the young, impressionable minds of the children of Denver that bigotry is acceptable. Do you not see the parallels between breedism and racism and xenophobia? Shame. We hope that on the day you wake up and realize the toxicity of what you have done, you can find a way to correct your mistake. Do it quickly- innocents are dying in shelters. Their blood on your hands.

Despite Denver’s self-proclaimed status as a dog-loving town—with more dogs living in the city than kids—it has been illegal to own a pit bull in Denver for over 30 years. And after City Council’s last-ditch vote yesterday to override the Mayor’s veto on a proposed lift of the ban, the Council fell one vote short, and it will remain illegal to own a pit bull (for now). How did we get here, and is the strict ban even effective in keeping Denver safe? Tap the link in our bio to learn more about the city’s contentious pit bull ban, and where things might be headed from here. 📷: AP Photo

Last night, I kept dreaming about trying to get back to my dogs. They were always in different rooms with different locks, and I could never find the right key.

People all over North America mourn for the decision made in #denver by @mayorhancock to ignore the city council, ignore the science and data demonstrating the inefficacy of breed specific legislation, and to tear apart families and end innocent lives based on ignorance and misinformation. Based on looks.

For us, this isn’t about “pit bulls” being “cute”, as you implied. This is about good dogs, with good owners, being punished for one mayor’s refusal to listen to reason. Some people have already chosen to leave your city, selling their homes and leaving their jobs. But that is a privilege and luxury afforded to few. Most people do not have the resources to do this, and instead, forcibly have their furry family members removed, based on the length of their coats and the shape of their heads.

Last year, when my husband was applying to medical schools all over the US, Colorado was one of the top states we wanted to live in. However, due to BSL, we knew we were not welcome in Denver, and have instead relocated to Phoenix, in a state where BSL is rightfully not permitted, state wide. In our case, we would have loved to join Denver and have added to the city a doctor, a therapist, and two wonderful, kind, funny, loving and dutifully trained dogs (who are particularly gentle with children, mind you). But now, in addition to so many others, we will not be visiting Colorado until the ban is repealed. I’m holding out hope that this will be sooner rather than later, but every day of the “round up” where dogs are stolen from their families and the dogs suffer for committing no crime, is one day too many.

Today is a very dissapointing day for Denver Colorado.

Denvers Mayor has UPHELD it's Pit Bull Ban. This absolutely breaks my heart and quite frankly is the stuff of my worst nightmares. I've had literal dream about my boys being ripped away from me, or where I can't find them, as I'm sure many pet parents have - but this is real!!! I can't imagine authorities coming into my home and taking this velvet seal from us, never to see him again, knowing good and well he will be taking his last breath in an animal hospital surrounded by strangers. I HURT for the citizens of Denver, of whom I've never met. My heart goes out to you.

This is Adam with his "cousin," Missy the pit mix. She is a best fur friend to Adam and Winny, and the sweetest.  Our humom has been watching the live stream of the Denver City Council meeting for the last hour. Because tonight they were voting and she hoped they would repeal the Mayor's veto of the repeal of the breed ban against pitbull type dogs that has been in place for almost 40 years. She is really sad and disappointed, because the council upheld the mayor's veto, and our friends the pitties are still banned in denver. ***
Humom wants to give a shout out to the council members who voted to repeal the ban and courageously, eloquently, and with science backing them up shared passionately about why BSL is ineffective. They did so well. We will not stop! BSL in denver will one day be repealed!

BSL in denver will one day be repealed! . . . . . #repealbsl #dontbullymybreed #dogfirstbreedsecond #iamnotadangerousbreed #denver #denvercolorado #pibblesofinstagram #pibblelove #pitbullmix #denvercitycouncil #americanpitbullterrier #pittie #pitmix #dogsofcolorado #dogstagram #rescuedogsofinstagram #rescuedismyfavoritebreed #adoptdontshop #dogsofinstagram #dog #coloradodog #politics #bsl #breedspecificlegislation #pitbullally
Breed Specific Legislation can literally do one 😂
Hate this topic, hate reading about it, hate writing about it, but at least it's opinion based this time round 🥴🙌🏻

Thanks to everyone who tuned into the premiere of The Other Side! If you still haven’t seen it, it’s available on YouTube, check it out and let me know what you think. Now, time to talk about another project of mine. As some of you may recall, last spring I was also working on a short documentary on the subject of Breed Specific Legislation, which I screened for class but have not yet released. Well, I’ve been busy with other projects and personal life stuff, but I haven’t forgotten about this one, and you’ll be happy to know that I’m currently in the process of contacting some experts for additional interviews and I hope to have the doc finished and released this summer. Stay tuned!

 READ THIS👉👉 The City of Denver voted to FINALLY do away with the BSL banning pitbulls within city limits, what felt like a major victory turned quickly to heartache when @mayorhancock vetoed the bill and vowed to continue to do so any time it came across his desk.

#BSL does NOT work, and that is according to over a dozen different well respected animal associations and US Government offices. #breedspecificlegislation is built on a foundation of fear, ignorance, and misinformation. In addition to being ineffective, BSL is also a costly expense for the city. It is time to stand up and say #dontbullmybreed and #endbsl and stop the euthanasia of beloved pets in Denver.

Join us by tagging Mayor Hancock in pictures of adorable, loving and well loved, sweet pitbulls and including the hashtag #pibblesforhancock in the hope of helping him see that BSL is never the answer. Let's flood him with pibble faces! 🙏 tag him in all your pibble photos😱

This was my goodest boi, Ludwig, when he was just a puppy. He was a #pibble one of the "scary vicious" #pitbull doggos @mayorhancock is discriminating against. Mayor Hancock isn't the only one scared of these sweet faces, Ludwig was poisoned in our backyard a couple of weeks after his 1st birthday.

Ethologist @kimbrophey and myself speaking Wednesday morning at the Western Veterinary Conference about choosing the right dog for you and how dog breeds ARE different from one another. In fact, we feel it’s abusive do not allow a herding dog to herd or a retrieving dog to not retrieve. And we’ll come and talk for you,even at your house #dogs #dogbreeds #endbsl #breedspecificlegislation #enrichment #stevedale #stevedalepettips #notedpetexpert

I think it’s fair to be extremely upset that Mayor Hancock of Denver upheld a ban on pit bull breeds.
__
Breed specific legislation is not necessarily the solution to a single problem in our country and I agree that pit bulls face discrimination. In fact, pit bulls and pit bull breeds are often service dogs for people with a variety of disabilities, but unfortunately they do not serve as the poster children for this bully breed bc of a variety of prejudices.
__
I’ve seen a lot of talk around IG, including from prominent accounts and trainers, that Mayor Hancock should be sympathetic to this issue because he’s black, and has likely experienced discrimination. Furthermore, these people are calling him a hypocrite for veto-ing this legislation.
__
I find it deeply disturbing, and frankly dangerous, to argue - ESPECIALLY AS A WHITE PERSON - that “someone’s experience of racism should give them an insider’s outlook on an issue like dog breed specific legislation”, as my friend @san_fran_sky so eloquently put.

To the privileged white people I hope read this, none of us can imagine even for a second what it’s like to live in America with dark skin, and I urge all of us to stop doing so.

This is PJ's story....and the very reason the current BSL is so ridiculous 😢 
Reposted from @christina.tigs This is one of the most haunting experiences of my career a few years ago. 
This dog was friendly, innocent and well trained. He was a cross breed dog who was 7 years old. His name was PJ.
PJ had to be killed by law....BSL LAW #breedspecificlegislation #endcaninediscrimination 🐾
This dog like many other innocent dogs have been considered dangerous because of their conformation or appearance. Crazy right?! It is known as Breed Specific Legislation. A law that was enacted in the UK in 1991 after dog related fatalities.
This law states that dogs of certain conformation equate to a certain risk, yet there is no scientific evidence to support this anywhere in the world.
🐾
PJ was seized from his home, kept in kennels for months alone, castrated and placed under the restrictions of a register for dogs commonly known as 'Pit Bull' types and returned home. Once dogs are placed on this register they can NOT be rehomed unless the owner is dead or dying with a court order. The owner of PJ was about to be evicted because all of a sudden the council wouldn't allow her to keep a registered 'Pit Bull' even though he was deemed safe. She wasn't able to find a place to live and suffered severely with mental health problems.
🐾
I tried everything I could in my professional capacity to save this dog. I was absolutely POWERLESS. Imagine that, I was unable to save a healthy and loving dog because of this. Breed specific legislation is an INSULT to my profession.
🐾
I wanted to ensure that PJ in his last moments was respectful, fun and full of love with people that truly cared about him. He had chocolate cake and was cuddled until he passed.
🐾
Please be respectful regarding comments this is a heart breaking reminder of the reality of my work and very hard for me to share. @shakirafree -
