    Hello. I am looking into moving to New Mexico and so far all I have been able to find is that Tijeras has a pit bull ban. Is this correct? Are there any other areas I need to watch out for? Any assistance you can offer is much appreciated. Also on a side note, if anybody knows pit bull friendly short term rentals in the Albuquerque area I would appreciate that as well. Thanks so much!

    I'm from the Rio Rancho/Albuquerque area and have not heard of any specific Pit Bull ban or anyone getting in trouble for simply having a pit. Human aggressive dogs and illegal activity are different story of course. Some quick googling does suggest there is a ban in Tijeras. The ban was established in 1985, here's a news paper article. http://www.scribd.com/doc/12503010/1985-Tijeras-New-Mexico-Pit-Bull-Ban-History. I just skimmed the article. Honestly I've never problem down here, most of the dogs here have pit in them if there not pure pit themselves.

    I live on the west side of Albuquerque. The only problems I've had are people hiding and waiting for my dog and I to pass. I don't mind though. Instead they are doing me a a service. Who wants to be around ignorant people anyway? Sometimes, I'll even have my dog sit down so that they can pass, but they end up in the street or the other side of the road. I did read some articles that suggested BSL in Bernalillo County a few years back, but it seems as though that turned into a mandatory spay/neuter for all dogs unless you pay for a breeders license.
