This story makes me SO angry! unfortunately I cannot comment on the page for some reason. ANY dog of ANY breed would go after a strange dog in their yard. There are no wounds to the police dog this was completely uncalled for. And how horrible for the owner!!!!!
Pit Bull news discussions.
This is great news for any Pit owner in Ohio!
Ohio's HB 79/55 has moved from the house to the senate and is waiting approval (which probably won't happen until later this year) which will REMOVE 'Pit Bulls' from the vicious dog list in Ohio!

As for the pit bulls, [Georgia] Lynn said, "they are not adoptable."
I don't live in this area, but it scary to see laws like this. Everytime I see these articles I just cringe. I feel fortunate to live where I do. As a matter of fact one of our shelters is doing Pitbull Awareness month and heavily promoting pitbulls all month.
Just for information for those who live in this area and may not of heard what is going on.
**below is a news story in a town near where I live. What I wonder is if the owner's door was indeed unlocked, how would the dogs have gotten out? Have they learned to open the door? Or are they even pit bulls, or one of the commonly mistaken breeds? and from the charges against the owner, seems to me this is an irresponsible dog owner, period.**
A Mason City dog owner is facing several charges and 2 men are recovering from bite wounds after they are attacked by 2 pit bulls.
This beautiful female Pit was shot and killed after her and another family dog broke out of a back yard. The officer that shot her said that he had other things to do and he had chased her for 20 minutes. She showed no signs of aggression, the officer chased her inbetween two houses and shot her as she was running away from him. Please sign the petition to help fight this kind of animal cruelty. Below is a link to the petition page. Thank you in advance for support.
StopBSL reports that BSL has been passed in Carthage, MS with no grandfather clause.
Carthage has no leash law. This quote from the city attorney, Alan Rhea, boggles the mind: “By putting in the ban on the specific breeds,” the attorney said, “you eliminate having to prove the dogs are dangerous.”
