Woman must prove pet isn't a pit bull
 
Court gives Oshawa dog owner access to animal facing death penalty. An interesting article:

I hate this BSL, it is absolutely ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!! and is discrimination at it's finest.

I hope she wins her case. :fingerscr:goodvibes:

If there is a photo of the actual dog, it is not coming up for me, but then I'm on dial up. I thought this article had to be about a case in Australia seeing the breed is banned here, I tend to forget they are in some other places as well.

Omg, I can't believe they are keeping this dog in a pound for such a length of time! Why not send it out of province to a foster home until the fate of the dog can be decided? Then if they decide it is against the BSL the dog can be adopted out of province.

OMG,this is heartbreaking for the owner,but mostly for Scarlet.
I suppose accidents happen,but if I was the owner of a banned breed,I would have my dog attached to my hip,not literally..
Scarlet looks like a Pit-Bull and will more than likely die,what an unbelievably cruel,unjust province we live in:evil:

Suburban blocks without fences, to my mind anyway, were always 'an American thing'. Seen on American TV programs. Here it was paling fences on 3 sides, often the backyard fenced off for the dog(and because by Law people must have safe access to your front door here), but then also you'd have a front fence. Without such fencing I honestly don't know how you'd keep a dog safe, and for the big , dare I say dangerous, dogs I would not even be happy with that much security, I'd be building or erecting an escape proof yard in the back yard, a safe place for it when I had to be away.
Scarlet does look a bit like a Pit Bull, she also looks so unhappy in the photo , poor dog, but owners of such dogs must protect them. Must keep them contained. Two Rotties got loose here yesterday and savaged a woman, no doubt they have been put down .

Stupid owners!! They make me so angry! Not an ounce of sympathy for them, but plenty for the poor dog. Incidentally, the trend towards fenceless suburban blocks has caught on in new suburbs around the City I shop in, does make me wonder if the houses are all minus pets.
