    Hi, can someone tell me about the laws regarding pit bulls. Our paper work says she is a bulldog/pointer mix. Everyone who sees her says she is a pit bull mix. If we want to take a drive through several states and maybe into Canada, what should we expect? Or, is it just impossible? She is a registered Therapy Dog.

    If you're just driving through, it's going to come down to finding a cop that wants to enforce all laws as they're written. They can confiscate her for simply being in the area, it doesn't matter if you don't live there and are just driving through. So I would map out your drive and avoid BSL areas. If you can't, leave her at home. It's not worth the risk.

    That said, I did drive through Denver 6 years ago when I was young and dumb and didn't run into a single issue. But had my car broken down in the mountains or I gotten pulled over, it would have been a very different story. Knowing what I know now, I would never do it again.

    Thank you, it does seem impossible. I like to keep a close eye on her because of her health challenges.
