Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is defined as a law or statute that equates the qualities of a dangerous dog with a certain breed, and bans or
restricts certain breeds based on identity, not behavior of a specific animal. This type of legislation does not make concessions for those members of the
breed who are valuable assets to their communities, such as therapy dogs, assistance dogs, or advanced trained dogs such as drug dogs and search
and rescue dogs.  BSL identifies a dog as "dangerous" based upon its breed alone and not based on any action or offense that the individual dog has
ever committed.

Breed-Specific Legislation Is a Bad Idea

Thanks for your petition.

We don't support breed-specific legislation -- research shows that bans on certain types of dogs
are largely ineffective and often a waste of public resources.

In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked at twenty years of data about
dog bites and human fatalities in the United States. They found that fatal attacks represent a
very small proportion of dog bite injuries to people and that it's virtually impossible to calculate
bite rates for specific breeds.

The CDC also noted that the types of people who look to exploit dogs aren't deterred by breed
regulations -- when their communities establish a ban, these people just seek out new,
unregulated breeds. And the simple fact is that dogs of any breed can become dangerous when
they're intentionally or unintentionally raised to be aggressive.

For all those reasons, the CDC officially recommends against breed-specific legislation -- which
they call inappropriate. You can read more from them and the American Veterinary Medicine
Association's approach to safe communities and dog bite prevention
here (PDF).

As an alternative to breed-specific policies, the CDC recommends a community-based approach
to prevent dog bites. And ultimately, we think that's a much more promising way to build
stronger communities of pets and pet owners.
