5 Breeds Targeted in Saginaw, Michigan

Back in January, we learned that an ordinance that would regulate the ownership of TEN breeds was proposed in Saginaw, Michigan. After much negative feedback from the public, the city has narrowed the list of targeted breeds to FIVE. The list includes pit bulls, Rottweilers, German shepherds, presa canarios and Alaskan malamutes.

Last night, the city council postponed the first of two votes necessary to implement this ordinance. The first vote could come at the May 9, 2011 council meeting.

Please continue to write to the Saginaw, Michigan officials to voice your POLITE, RESPECTFUL and INFORMATIVE opposition to any law that targets specific breeds of dogs rather than focusing on the root of the issue -irresponsible dog owners.

One response to “5 Breeds Targeted in Saginaw, Michigan

  1. I would like to know why do people of different countys and state have such a problem? Don’t they realize that all dogs can bite it is not the Breed that does this? I have been getting Jodi Preis e-mail about this and I have responded to some to try to help out. But I feel like it is of no use to say anything. People are the problem if they do not want to train their dogs. Thanks for your help. Sandy
