waylon_the_pitbullAs most of you know, this is my fur-son Waylon, and our former foster Addy. Both are considered pitbulls, and both are sweet as can be. When I read the news this morning that #montreal just passed #breedspecificlegislation, I was mad, sad, hurt and confused. I don't understand why anyone would vote to ban an entire group of breeds, because of the actions of individuals. There are a ton of arguments why this is a terrible idea, but I'm left thinking about what would happen if my city passed such a senseless and compassionless law. If someone tried to tell me that I couldn't adopt Waylon because he's a pitbull, or that I had to walk him with a muzzle on a 4 foot leash when he's done no harm to anyone, I would move. I would fight it, and I would move somewhere where my baby wouldn't have to suffer because of the stupidity of a few. I know moving isn't an option for many, and my heart goes out to all who are affected by this. Please, #educate yourself and others about pitbull breeds. No dog should be persecuted because of his perceived breed, or shape of his head and strong muscles. What happened to us seeing #pitbulls as #nannydogs? Please keep and open mind; get to know the individual dog just as you would get to know any individual person. Every dog is different, and more than likely, any poor behaviors have come from the owner, and are NOT inherent in the breed.

- sathopperAs another mom of a boy named Waylon 🐶 I am 100% with you on this - as are millions of other families who've been disregarded this week. ❤️ #boycottmontreal #iamnotamonster #saveourfamilies #gooddog #badlaw #endbsl #saferkindercommunities
- waylon_the_pitbullThanks @sathopper! I'm glad that I'm not the only one outraged by this. It makes me so sad to see this happening and thankful that there is no such (stupid) law in my city.
- sathopperDef not the only one. Plenty of rescue groups and individuals taking aim at MTL city leadership now, including the SPCA filing a suit yesterday. Fortunately cities here are starting to recognize BSL is unconstitutional. That just doesn't apply north of the border. Keep up the good work!
- myantoniathepitbullSuch a great post!
