Proud Pit Mom - Potentially moving to Toronto

    Hi Everyone,
    I've had my Pit - Sidi, since she was 5 wks old. She is now 10.5yrs old and my best friend. I have an amazing potential job opportunity in Toronto, but Ontario has a ban on Pitbulls. I have heard that I can manipulate her paperwork to get her into Ontario. However, I'm concerned that I wouldn't be able to trust this to protect her long term. Does anyone have experience with BSL in Ontario? Please share any advice!!
    Thank you,

    Welcome to the forum. Me personally, I would never take that risk with my dog.

    Welcome, I hope you can get some help with this. Too bad that responsible owners have to deal with this.

    I know of an instagrammer who has supposed 'XLs' in Toronto, their username is team_red_n_white .
    I know there are more, but they are the ones that come to mind right now, you could DM them and see if they could offer some insight. Most of the users here live in ban free areas, sometimes bordering cities or counties that have bans or restrictions. I for one have no experience manipulating BSL.

    This isn't first hand experience, so make of it what you will.

    The woman who fostered my dog while she was in rescue ended up fostering a dog that was displaced from Toronto due to BSL. I never did meet the dog in person, but based on pictures he was as "mutt" as they come. Bull breed of some sort, for sure, but still very mutt looking to me. The thing that did him in was they did a Wisdom Panel DNA test on him. I got to see the results sheet. One parent was listed as Am Staff/Boxer/Collie and the other listed as Boxer/Am Staff mixed. Due to the results he either had to go to an out of province rescue or be euthanized within one year.

    Don’t do it, Ontario is extremely strict about BSL and they can and will seize and euthanize your dog if you do not remove them from the province. Manipulating papers does nothing when they determine “breed” based on appearance.

    Are there any suburbs of Toronto nearby that don't have BSL? And you could commute in to Toronto?

    The entire province has BSL. The closest place she could safely live with her dog would be in New York.

    Thank you, I will definitely DM this person. I just received the job proposal over night last night, so this is now very real. Thank you so much.
