On Dec. 19 of last year, a petition was created on the White House's "We the People" section of its website, titled "Ban and outlaw Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) in the United States of America on a Federal level!" It has more than 30,000 signatures. It also just got the backing of President Obama .

It's a start. Although I think it's catching on. Our insurance company is against BSL.

Hopefully there will be (sometime soon!) where everyone takes a stand against BSL. While I do have a pit bull (thats when i first REALLY learned about BSL) I have come to realize its not just pits, Its also against Dobies, rotties, GSDs, chow chows, huskies, mastiffs and ive even seen hounds on the lists! I'm glad the Obama administration is taking a stand against it, maybe more will follow! happy danceapplause

This is great news! It's about time America is taking a look at this issue. In Sweden Pit bulls were banned in the 90's until the government there realized it was indeed an owner problem and not a dog problem, and in France they don't ban any breed but have muzzle and leash laws which is a much better option. If anyone is interested we wrote an article about legislation in the US and other countries on our blog: http://www.puppyset.com/top-10-dog-friendly-countries/
