In America, a small town in Missouri can take away a person's pet? This is outrageous. Yhis must go to the state legislature; Southern mentality and all.

This story has me beside myself. I can only imagine the heartache and grief that these dog owners are feeling. I applaud all of the shelters who have done what they can to take in these dogs, save them and try to adopt them out if possible. BSO means bullshit ordinance as far as I am concerned. GRRRRR! Noted, twittered, fb and google shared. I am not feeling very Christmas Spirited at the moment.

Unreal, what is wrong with this town? I can understand taking a dog that has done something to a human or another animal but taking a dog that has done nothing except resemble another breed is ridiculous. This is America and that town should be ashamed of their behavior.

I woke up in the USA this morning. Did something change? Since when do police barge into people's homes and remove their pets? It would happen to my dog only over my dead body.

This is really crossing the line. The only way to stop these people is to vote out every single asshole who holds office in that municipality.

How can law enforcement legally come on your property and take your dog? Animals are considered property in the eyes of the law; since when can the police just take something that belongs to a citizen without their consent? I am just speechless at this flagrant abuse of power.

But Missouri has no problem with their being one of the states with the highest number of puppy mills. These people have absolutely no sense of justice at all.

This would never happen in NY or California. Try telling dog owners in those two states that they have to hand over their dogs to the police to be put in shelters and would probably be euthanized. There would be a f**king war.

only a matter of time before they round up the offspring of first cousins. Or is that who is doing the rounding up? Put a little KKK outfit on a dog and no one will dare impound it.

Wasn't able to sign petition because I don't live in Missouri. This is small thinking on part of those that made this decision. Make those humans that have the breed HAVE to register the dogs. Take pictures of the dogs, so you know which belong to who. Heavily fine those that don't register their dogs. Put the responsibility back on the humans, don't punish the dogs.
