Re: Re: What are you reading/cats NOW deer

My Yorkie is a bigger threat than my great big dogs ever have been...has
the killer instincts of a wild beast, that little guy does...he is the
real guard dog of our house. IMO, it is lack of socialization and proper
training combined with an individual dog's personal temperament that
should be looked at...any law that attempts to outlaw anything based
solely on one characteristic (i.e. a specific breed of dog) is
stupid...vicious dog laws aimed at behavior of individual animals make
much more sense. I hope those two gentlemen with their loving animals
are allowed to keep their pets, Kitty...keep us posted.

That's crazy. Then they need to outlaw about half the dog breeds out
there. <br> Cocker Spaniels are on the number one worst list for biting.
What about <br>pit bulls (my stepson has two that are gentle giants).

creature<br>><br>>Another story to share. Our City Council passed new
laws concerning <br>>animals<br>>in the city limits. No home can have
more than 5 dogs or 7 cats ot 7 total<br>>combination. Then they
declared all exotic animals banned. This includes<br>>dogs that are any
part wolf.<br>><br>>A local 78 yr old man rescued a big white dog that
was being neglected. <br>>His<br>>wife had died and then his dog died
and he had no one until he rescued <br>>Lady.<br>>He's had her 4 yrs now
and the neighbor kids love her. The man takes her <br>>to<br>>nursing
homes for people to pet and for those who can, they take her
for<br>>walks around the parking lot. A couple of yrs ago when Lady got
her shots,<br>>the vet wrote down that she was half malmute, half wolf.
The city now<br>>insists that if he doesn't get rid of her by the end of
the week, she'll be<br>>put to sleep. He said they can just put him down
then too. Another <br>>elderly<br>>couple - the man on disability, the
woman w/ MS, have been told they have <br>>to<br>>lose their part wolf
pet too.<br>><br>>This has the town in an uproar. Petitions are being
signed, letters to the<br>>editor are being written (I've done both) Now
the Council has been forced<br>>to call an emergency session next week
to discuss it, but it doesn't look<br>>promising. Personally, I know
poodles that pose more threat than these 2<br>>dogs. Yes, some may pose
a problem, but this zero tolerance stuf
