BSL Victim Rocket One Step Closer To Coming Home | North Country Gazette.

This is happening in Victoria, Australia and is very similar to what happened to Lennox in Belfast and we all know what the outcome was for Lennox and his family. Several other dogs that have fallen victim to the application of bad legislation in that state, but many of them have been allowed home after it was revealed that they had been incorrectly identified as ‘pit bulls’. In Australia the American Staffordshire and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier are not classed as pit bulls yet Bull Mastiff and Staffy cross breeds have been labelled as pit bulls by local councils, declared dangerous and removed from their homes.

It is a disgrace and Rocket must be sent home.

    Shocking. I remain baffled as to people’s beliefs regarding dogs. Thank heavens we don’t have any of the breed specific legislation here in South Africa, otherwise Litchi would fall right in there.

      The media doesn’t help either, they love to turn certain animals into monsters often based on very little fact. We have BSL in Queensland but it is directed at ‘pit bulls’ which means staffies like my little boy are excluded but who knows for how long, absolutely ridiculous and disgraceful 😦

      I hope that day will come soon but sadly there are still many who believe what they read in the papers and think that certain breeds are dangerous killers and must be destroyed and even more sadly, those people are often the ones making the rules.

    Very sad. The breed doesn’t matter. What matters is the way dogs are raised and hopefully they don’t end up with stupid owners who train them to fight.

      Agreed, the breed doesn’t matter, it is the poor handling of a dog and irresponsible nature of idiots that make a dog (of any breed) dangerous.

        You’d think that people would know this, but they don’t. It is very sad for the majority of good and gentle animals.

        It breaks my heart, the media don’t care, they know that by demonising these creatures and stirring up a frenzy they sell more papers, etc and the politicians benefit by passing bills that are popular with the uneducated masses.
