    Lately I am coming across posts claiming that PETA supports BSL is that true.?

    For those who don’t know Breed Specific legislation (BSL) is a ban on owning a breed of dog which is declared aggressive by nature to be precise that includes all the pitties, well that’s an utter crap. I think doesn’t stop the problem with aggressive dogs or aggressive natured dogs. Certain states ban the ownership of specific breeds of dogs, mainly the Staffordshire terrier, Staffordshire pit bull terrier, the American pit bull terrier and other dogs of that nature. Mainly I think the problem lies in the hands of the owner of these dogs. If precautions were taken to socialize and behaviour train the animals then I think we would have no problems with aggressive dogs….unless they were trained to be aggressive. Just like in any society there are PEOPLE that don’t always abide by laws and are pleased by turning dogs into aggressive dogs for purposes of pleasure or money. That is the reason for a unsafe behaviour of aggressive dogs. We need to address the individuals of this behaviour rather than banning dogs that have been in our lives for over 500 years.

    Breeding leads to very poor conditions and overcrowding in pounds and animal shelters, often ending in these animals because killed. I think that’s why PETA’s against breeding. There are so many lovable animals just waiting for a home that will love them in shelters. And speaking from experience, there is no better feeling than adopting one of these cuties!

    @LittleLotte I cried reading that page that was very disturbing. Thank you for sharing it with me.
    I didn’t believe that statement at first and being a member for so long I felt an urge to ask PETA staff itself. Thank you @SaraAnn-C :)
    Can I post this page and your reply as a validation on all those post portraying PETA against Pitties..?

    Hey @JaskIranGulria

    We’re against any type of breeding, because there are millions of animals in shelters. We are against the breeding of a Golden Retriever as much as the breeding of any other animal. We want animals in shelters to find homes, rather than have people irresponsibly breeding other animals. :)
