Louisville bans pit bulls?
An out of state friend sent me a link to the breediets_no community and this post, which I have copied and pasted here completly...I thought it kind of pertained to the community. If I am wrong in thinking this I'll delete or whatever..

I have friends that have Pitt bulls, and bully mixes, and Otis, my baby, is often referred to as a Pitt bull by people in the neighborhood even though it's very obvious that he is a boxer. I would hate to think someone would want to take my dog away from me... I hate to think someone would want to take my friend Patti's dog away from her....

Post begins below........

Louisville may add limits on pit bulls


Have you written a brief letter? I have. If you have not, please consider contacting the newspaper, legislators or, if you are local, attending the public hearing on the proposed legislation. Every little bit counts, and none of us should stand idly by as our beloved pets are attacked from all corners. We should do our best to help defend all maligned dogs in every part of the country. It's the least we can do.

Though they have not caused any problems in Louisville, KY, Rottweilers are also being added to the list of dogs who would be affected by the proposed legislation (which varies from muzzling, 500K insurance, to outright banning).

Council Meeting: The Louisville Metro Council will meet at 6 p.m. tomorrow in City Hall, Sixth and Jefferson streets. You have to register by 4pm today to attend: 574-3902. Up to 10 speakers can orate for 3 minutes prior to the onset of the meeting.

Letters to the editor: http://www.courier-journal.com/cjconnect/edletter.htm
- Shorter letters are always appreciated (under 200 words)
- Point out that at least one of the dogs involved in the recent fatal attack is probably *not* a pit bull (according to the director of Animal services)
- Point out the ATTS statistics, unsoundess of BSL, cost, and maybe point to sound legislation that addresses behavior (New York's a good example)


Behind this cut is an article about all of this..Collapse )

This is an excellent point and I wish more people saw it this way.
"She compared such laws with those on drunken driving. "We don't ban alcohol, because we know the problem is the person using it," she said"

I just thought people would like to know about this.

this guy needs a home quick!
This is Barney.


He is around 8 months old. We adopted him today for free from a woman out in the South End that said her husband "bought him from someone that said he was a full blooded pit bull but now he won't even mess with him."

The woman said the dog has always been kept outdoors and the most her husband would do was "throw him some food". She was willing to give him away to anyone regardless of their intentions it seemed to me because my initial e mail to her was "I'll take him." and she responded with her address and when I could pick him up. When we got there I asked a lot of questions, since we cannot keep him and just wanted to save him from going to a shitty home or become as I've heard it put 'a disposable sparring partner for another Pit Bull" he needs a home QUICK!

Background on BarneyCollapse )

Todays behavior observations...Collapse )

Basically, he seems well tempered but needy affectionate-wise. He would need a backyard probably or someone to take him on many walks often.
Okay with older kids (10 and up) but I think he would need to be an only dog but I'm not sure yet.

Here are some pictures of him....

If you want to meet him or ask questions e mail me at Clayfist@gmail.com and I will send you my phone number. My name is Ella.

Also, We'll give you his collar (red), his leash (red) and that dog house in the picture. (it's needs to be washed.

Thank you. Please pass the word along about this doggie.

Vegan and loving it.
I have only been vegan for about 4 months but I've been vegetarian for over a year before this. I just thought I'd introduce myself and tell everyone I am here and I love to talk to new people. I will try and remember to post on this community more often than others. Have fun. TTFN ANDY
