You have read the law correctly. Even with papers you can have your dog taken away just because it looks like a pit bull, resulting in a lot of legal fees should you choose to fight to get it back. It's a horribly, stupid law.
It seems some communities are worse than others. Here in Kingston I haven't heard of any horror stories.
