Since the inception of the Dangerous Dog Act 1991 and Breed Specific Legislation, a number of dog breeds have been been demonised by the media, influencing public perception and creating a public safety concern that research proves to be severely flawed. Needlessly, harmless family pets have been put to death and owners prosecuted by police and authorities using guidelines that are vague at best. The Bull Breeds have been much maligned, but after 25 years, studies now prove that Pit Bulls and dogs of type on the restricted list are no more dangerous than the family Labrador or Poodle and Breed Specific Legislation should be evoked. This book covers the many dog breeds persecuted, their history, physiology, true characteristics and development over hundreds of years from the first original Bandog, the Alaunt. How pioneers developed each specific breed for purpose and the international infuence they made to farming, guarding and companionship. I take an indepth look at the Dangerous Dog Act 1991 and Breed Specific Legislation. It looks at the legal challenge to BSL, exemption, education, dog aggression and the way forward to change government legislation and human perception. More importantly this book highlights the immediate need to prevent any more animal cruelty and endorse good animal welfare practices to prevent anymore suffering to humans and their dogs.
