    sorry joey, but im gonna have to disagree (just a lil bit lol), i think its good for the vaccination laws (such as the parvo shot law for pups, but also the rabies vaccs) just because what other folks choose NOT to do for theyre dogs can potentially affect other dogs and cause an outbreak.

    example: you choose not to get your puppy vaccinated for parvo

    well what about the "smith's" dog down the street who has a newborn litter of pups?

    see where im getting at?

    but i couldnt agree with you more about the liscensing bullshit, just another easy way of the state/country raising money & and even EASIER way of helping the HS put this breed to rest!

    I'm lucky, it's only $6 to license a sterilized pet and $11 for an intact pet here. You have to have proof of rabies, but even that is like $5 at AC.

    Yeah your very lucky.. They'll do anything to stop breeding here but most of all for them to make money!

    Precious gets her rabies shot in a couple of days then i have to license her but i think im just going to wait till i spay her which she has her appointment on June 12th cause im not gonna pay them $60 when i can pay $20...With the extra $40 i can put another $10 and buy her another 30lb bag of food..:p I prefer to spend it on her than to give the county an extra $40.:lol:

    the dog pound out here charges $35 for liscensing fixed dogs.

    they charge $350 for unaltered dogs

    yet, they charge $50 for theyre spay & nueter than $35 to liscense

    so you either pay $85, for them to do it THEYRE way


    you can pay $350 for them to do it YOUR way. (dont forget its YOUR dog)

    Of course, if I lived a county over, they have mandatory spay/neuter, and it is VERY hard to get an Unaltered Animal Permit for any bully breed. If they catch you with an unaltered animal that isn't licensed and is over 6 months old, they slap you with a fine and make you get a permit for it. If the animal isn't registered, you can't get a permit and they will impound the animal and require you to pay for both the impoundment, and the spay/neuter. Even Police K9 handlers must get a permit to keep their partner. Strangely enough, spay/neuter isn't required for shelters/rescues...

    well im sure its just not here in the US where you have to spay/neuter and license dogs. Back home in Australia all i remember is we had to license them but we didn't have to spay/neuter but then again i haven't been back in 10 years.:o

    no no no laced, I agree with vaccinating puppies especially for parvo I did all of them for my girl because I agree I believe they need them but once they reach a year old they do not need yearly vaccinations unless your dog is going to be around other dogs quiet often.

    Yes licensing our dogs is just one of those steps the government loves to rub up against us and breath for more of our $$$ along with keeping tract of our vicious apbts.

    That's why there are so many "pitbulls" or "pitbull mixes" put down every fucking year because people are not responsible enough to own a dog. The dog get outs and bangs everything in site, more dogs running around, and backyard breeders.

    (I'm talking in PA).
    When it comes to your property, think about when you buy a house, which becomes your property once you pay for it, (setting up payments), have home owners insurance etc, THEN it's your property.

    You buy a car or motorcycle, you must have insurance, register it, have a licence, then it's your property.

    So if you're saying a dog is your property, why not do the same?
    (Now you can't do it with every little thing like a shovel, hammer etc).

    Everyone says they love their Pits etc.
    Why not take them places with you, show them off and show that they are a good breed and can do great in different enviroments instead of leaving them chained in the backyard and just give them food, water and the occasional exercise.
    We should all be looking focusing towards being ambassadors of the breed and try to change peoples minds that they are not blood thirsty, man and child eating creatures that would kill everything that crosses their path.
