Thank you for posting! What's baffling is how did a federal law, Americans with Disabilities Act, get completely overrided! Besides that BSL is inane and inhumane, this should have never happened in the first place. Well excellent!

You're right, Constance . They should have never been allowed to take Snickers in the first place. Because the Americans With Disabilities Law of 1993 , overrides their stupid , insane, unjustified BSL bull**** !! Oh, this Pit Bull ban drives me up the wall . It is wrong, and it was wrong when they tried it Doberman, Rototillers, and others. But even Insurance Companies are doing it on Homeowner Policies on Houses ! I know it has a clause in it that you cannot own Pits, Doberman, Rototillers, Akita's - and one or 2 more that i can't think of right now. It is so wrong - and they NEED TO BAN THE LAW - NOT THE DOGS !!

I am so pleased to read this. I was disgusted when I first read about it. Happy New Year to the two of you!

This is PROOF that what we do here, signing and posting petitions (I posted the petition to get his dog back on the news!) actually does make a difference! Thank you all for what you do. This story is total proof that what we do here matters.
