|Hi dogster doggies, I live in MA, and am a 6 y/o female spayed Chow-Shar pei mix. Mommy can only get Homeowners insurance thru a special state plan that is very very expensive, just because the breed (s) I am. There is an unwritten Bad List that Insurance companies use to deny dog owners of certain breeds coverage! There is a Bill in the State Legislature has been "working on" but it has gone no where in over a year. This Bill would require insurance companies to cover dog owners, with no breed discrimination! We e-mailed a member of the committie that it is with, but he hasn't responded, mommy is going to write a paper letter this week.
Any other MA dogster dogs victims of this as well? If you aren't yet, don't tell your insurance company you have a specific type breed of dog!!! BSL is the worst, we need this insurance bill to help prevent any BSL from coming! (I believe there are some MA towns/cities with BSL by-laws and such, but nothing widespread yet)
Oh, and I am a very good girl! Never a problem, I have been around kids, cats and puppies!
