Have your say
the dogs have never been aggressive and were only seized becoz they had got out of the back yard and they lookd like a band breed they neva attacked the man hu seized them or the two dogs that wur in a garden barking at them nor have they been aggressive to anyone wher the police are keeping them they are very loveing dogs and my son has also been around them plenty of times ignorant people hu dont no all the facts should realy keep the opinions to them self!! thank you janet and nayb for the support xx
I don't know the facts behind this story, but no where does it mention that the dogs have shown any aggression or 'mauled' any children. David, have you actually read Section 1 of the DDA; it states that any dog can be seized etc if it is a banned breed or just looks like a banned breed. Dogs have been being seized and killed for 21yrs on looks alone in the UK and this is regardless of temprement or behaviour. Maybe before you come out with such statements you should find out all the facts.
