http://howtotakecareofdog.com/watch-breed-specific-legislation-how-it-can-affect-you-and-your-dog/

This video here is about the breed specific legislation and how it affects so many breeds. I do not support BSL, and never will, its wrong and does not solve any problems. I recommend you should watch this video because it really shows how so many dogs are being banned because of ignorant, narrow minded people that are fearful of these dogs and also have many misconceptions of these breeds. I own a dog that is on the BSL list, Siberian husky, and its most likely that you have one too. Its not a small list, there is even dogs being targeted that aren’t even on the list. Its scary to think that one day someone could come to your house, take your dog, and kill it because its a certain breed that their fearful of. How do you feel about that? Racial profiling is illegal, so why isn’t BSL? Its exactly like racial profiling, except its with different dog breeds. Please don’t support the breed specific legislation.

5 year old pit bull, Maximus, defended his owners life when the owners brother in law came to collect a loan from Dwayne Wilkey’s (owner) ” There was some altercation between he and his brother in law, Johnson , during the altercation, the suspect pulled out a knife” says Troy Elwell, Aiken County Sheriffs Office. Investigators say that during the fight Maximus, was aware his owner was in danger, unlocked his kennel with his nose and attacked Johnson. Officers say that Johnson was stabbing Maximus repeatedly. “I loved my dog to death. He was my baby”  says Wilkey. Johnson is facing several chrages, including assault with intent to kill and ill treatment of animals. He is being held at the Aiken County Detention Center on $15,000 bond.

To me, this is a touching story of a loyal pit bull. He sensed danger and faced it, unfortunately he died trying. Pit bulls are so loyal to their owners and will protect them if in harms way, this courageous dog died protecting his owner.
