Petition Tag - bull terrier
This morning I was watching Lorraine and the two people discussing the news story about the child attacked by a Staffie made comments like "I just don't understand why any one would want to own one of those kinds of dogs when they are so dangerous" and "You just don't get aggressive Labradors".
If you think those comments are correct then walk away and continue to lead a narrow minded life but if you think that it should be deed not breed then please sign so we can get a proper apology from the show and maybe they can get someone who actually knows about dogs to give people the facts!
Please! Help me make it legal to own a pit bull in the City of Addison, IL!
Pit bulls are one of the greatest dogs you could ever want! They are sweet, smart, loving, gentle, and most of all, NOT human aggressive!
Don't punish the breed, punish the deed!
According to studies, you are more likely to get attacked by a Collie (Lassie dog) then by a pit bull.
Don't judge a dog by it's looks! After all, how would you like it if the government decided to ban YOUR dog? Wouldn't you do anything to fight a law like that? Please help me rid Addison of the Pit Bull ban.
Thank you so much!
Here is a copy of the Addison village ordinance reguarding pitbulls:
