Breed specific legislation or “BSL” is an ordinance restricting ownership of certain identified breeds of dogs. The ban is based on physical characteristics of prohibited breeds or even prohibits specific breeds. . Part of this canine inequality includes bans based purely on "what a dog looks like". BSL has restricted ownership of breeds like Rottweilers, Dobermans, & Mastiffs but sadly, the ineffective and unfair legislation focuses more on "pit bull type" dogs.
October is National Pit Bull Awareness Month! National Pit Bull Awareness Day is on October 26th. National Pit Bull Awareness Day was created by Jodi Preis of Bless the Bullys in 2007 to honor her first Pit Bull Tiffin.
