The AKC and the Michigan Association for Purebred Dogs are pleased to report that the Detroit City Council has unanimously rejected a proposed breed ban. Local fanciers and responsible dog owners successfully convinced the council members that breed-specific legislation would be unenforceable, penalize responsible dog owners and would not improve public safety. The proposal would have banned new "pit bulls," defined as American Stafforshire Terriers, Stafforshire Bull Terriers, American Pit Bull Terriers and mixed breeds with similar traits, and further required existing owners to comply with restrictive care conditions. Thank you to all the concerned dog owners who contacted the city council in opposition to this measure.
