Dublin City Council dog ban

520 Signatures Goal: 1,000

We the undersigned petition Dublin city council against the banning of eleven breeds of dog from council houses,estates,and properties,such action can only lead to 1.Distraught families and children who have to hand over beloved family pets either for rehoming or destruction with no responsible assessment of the individual dog and its owners. 2. Irresponsible owners, particularly those who use their dogs for fighting and who breed dogs for the same purpose will most certainly not hand their dogs over and will instead put them into hiding and carry on with their cruel practices even further from the public eye. 3. Amnesties will be offered by councils to those owners to hand their dogs over and this will fail also. 4. Many dogs will now be abandoned or thrown on to the streets for animal welfare organisations to pick up and take responsibility for. These organisations are generally under resourced anyway and this will result in the needless cull of many dogs. 5. The whole area of fighting dogs is a very lucrative one and it will now be driven further underground and people will make even more money out of this cruelty to animals. In short the Council has been very irresponsible and rash in taking this decision with very little thought for the consequences. The focus should be on the behaviour of the owners and not the dogs and this issue can be addressed with responsible ownership not destruction.
