gladly signed, stupid stereotype laws that discriminate the breed of dogs, this dog deserves justice including the owner of the dog, he was willing to do whatever it took, but they did not give him a chance, so ironic and unfair, the humans are the evil here, they need to have a reality check, or have someone with some common sense an some intelligence, no idiots should run this stupid facilities, because they are as evil, as the people that kill dogs,poor dogie.

Since we stereotype our human species it does not surprise me that we stereotype our animals. We do not blame an entire culture for the ills of a few, but yet will ban an entire grouping of dog breeds for the behavior of a few. Investigation must definately be looked into on the neighbors behalf. He is the one who caused all this problem. These breed discrimination laws must be repealed. They are hateful.

I signed. I don't know how to get this information to Hank's dad, can you help? Hank can be considered a service animal and thus pet laws do not apply to him. All Hank's dad has to do is go to his doctor and get a letter stating Hank is a service animal. He would probably be considered an Emotional Support service animal. E.S. dogs cover mental illness. So, if you can give Hank's dad this information that would be great.
