SAVE LENNOX: The Injustice in Breed Bans

In Belfast, United Kingdom, a family dog of four years has been seized from his home and locked under deplorable conditions, simply because he is of a pit-bull type breed.

The 5-year-old American Bull dog and Labrador mix has no history of violence and has never had a complaint filed against him. Also, the family has completed everything required by law to be a responsible dog owner.

Yet, following the Breed-specific Legislation (BSL), the Belfast City Council determined that Lennox was a danger to society and sentenced him to death.

In the UK, Northern Ireland, and across the world, dogs are systematically misidentified and murdered under this legislation.

Almost 40,000 people have signed the petition to release him, including celebrities like “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Milan, who said he does not believe in breed bans like this.
