Signed. The author of the petition had a little attitude and if this her dogs, she isn't going to win the case. If she isn't the dog's owners, then they need to do some leg work and don't sit around and hope others will do it for them. They need to call the State attorney and find out what their rights are. They need to call the TV stations and tell their story on the air. They need to get as much support from the public as possible. Dre's life depends on them getting off of their butt and doing something about this. Don't have Chloe, the author help you though. The judge will not like her and will take it out on the dog.

It is as if people thrive ion the mania surrounding pit bulls. Really, how many cases are there of people being attacked? Look at the news and you will se who the killers are but these law enforcement people are so ignorant that they can not see reality. I am so sick of this mass frenzy when nothing has happened except the dog is a pit or looks like one. Law enforcement needs to start getting educated instead of feeding into the hysteria. I guess they are pretty stupid as well and since they are just dogs, just pit bulls,they don't give a damn. the dog, ran and barked and was excited. Every day I have to deal with the stupidity of people and that is the real crime.

Why are there not lawyers to help these dogs? People get lawyers when they are accused so why not dogs. It could be a whole new field of law. Goodness knows there are enough cases like this as we see in our animals groups on line.

Well, I do hope he get off. If only we all had the time and money to go and help al these dogs in person.

''SIGNED''.....thanks Simone.....not again. We have already seen two Pit Bull dogs killed in the past fews weeks and now the law enforcement is gunning for another. These killings of Pit Bull dogs has to STOP. These dogs have NOT harmed anybody, in any way. These poor dogs have a label on them because they are Pit Bulls, no other reason. It's time to stop labeling these dogs as beein dangerous, they are NOT. ANY dog can be dangerous, its the way they are trained. PLEASE don't kill another innocent dog!!!!

signed, again it was an accident that the dogs got out, but usually dogs bark when let out without leash, not necessary they will bite, but of course people don't know that if i would be in the same position, but come on if a dog wants to bite you the dog will, just comes and charges you without warning or not even barking at you, than you call the dog a vicious, but by instinct dogs bark, they are just labeling because the dog looks like a pitbull, too much discriminating going out lately and the media and society that does not like this particular breed are making a huge deal or it. educate first and then judge.

What's happening lately? Every time there's a Pit Bull involved in some small incident it bounces to the headlines. I know a few people who have Pit Bulls and they are the sweetest dogs out!! Please remember that every time a dog gets out of control for some reason or another it's our fault and not the dog's. Marilyn Italy

Yesterday I saw a competition about dog agility and one of the dogs was a Pit Bull, his human friend showed him how to catch frisbees, that shows how any dog can be loving and not a killing machine!!

Lennox, Wicca...So sad, and there are so many more dogs in danger.
Signed the petition and wrote an email to the Chief of Police

I'm writing to appeal to you and all the powers that be in Brighton, for reasonable and lawful judgment of Dre, the dog taken into custody on July 26 and held as a "vicious dog".
My understanding is that Dre has NEVER HARMED ANYONE. Dre may have barked in fear when being pursued by strangers, but didn't hurt anyone. There is no reason to destroy this innocent family dog!!!
