In some countries and counties in the US sadly APBTs are totally banned and there is also quite a bit of other types of BSL such as:
owners having to pay huge registration fees,
the dogs not being allowed to walk in public,
fence height and tethering restrictions
higher insurance levels required
It is sad and BSL is definitely not a solution to the problem… After all, the whole breed is not at fault for what some irresponsible owners have done.
Luckily, most areas in the US have dangerous dog laws and leash laws on the books which cover all breeds of dogs and don’t target just specific breeds and punish responsible owners and their dogs who have done nothing wrong. This is a much better way to handle issues in my opinion.
