Pit Bull Ordinances being considered. I'm against any breed specific legislation and my sentiment was echoed many times in last nights meeting.
It's the owners, stupid.Just like children, dogs are a product of not only genetics but the environment and influences in which they are raised. Pictured here is Dobie, our 95 lb lap dog (seriously, he loves to lay in our laps for petting). I've never had a dog that was so sensitive. Dobie easily gets his feelings hurt even if we're scolding one of the other dogs.
That was the not-so-subtle message sent to Springfield City Council members Monday during a public hearing on a breed-specific ordinance targeting pit bulls.
Our Dobie-do isn't a pit bull, we don't know exactly what he is as we got him from the humane society, but he does resemble another breed with a bad wrap. It won't be long before they start considering other breeds.
By then though, we'll be moved out of Greene County! :)
