    Hello, I haven't been on here for a few years. since then, I have added another pit bull to my family..My family is thinking about moving to Oregon and was wondering if this State was pit bull friendly. They are looking into the Cannon Beach area.

    Hello, I was born and raised in southern Oregon and moved to Idaho almost a year ago. Northern Oregon is so different than southern, I am not sure about cannon beach but I hate Portland, as much of Oregon does really, to be completely honest it's a weird and gross place.
    Southern Oregon has a LOT of bull breeds, probably over half the dog population is bull breeds or bully mixes. Yes, there are close minded people, but I believe there are far more bully lovers than haters there. There is a county with breed restrictions. In Melheur county you are required to crate your dog in the car, always keep them in a 6 sided kennel/pen, when in the house you cannot open any windows, no tethering, no leashes longer than 6 feet, no off leash and I believe you have to muzzle your dog in public. I'm unsure of how strictly that is enforced but it is an area I drive through when going to visit my parents so I have to abide by those laws. Its the eastern part though and east Oregon though and I THINK you can travel on the 84 without going through it so you probably will never have to deal with it. A couple other places in Oregon 'declared Pit Bulls dangerous' but I don't believe this means there are restrictions, does anyone know the specifics with that?

    Rains a heck of a lot in northern Oregon, in case you didn't know Haha

    Malheur county definitely has breed based restrictions, and I think some cities might- Springfield passed something a while back. I'd look at each county and city you're thinking of to be sure, but pit bull prejudice isn't a big deal here as far as our experience goes.

    We live on the southern coast and rarely have any trouble, there are many bull breed dogs here and people are generally friendly towards my boy. Same goes for most of the southern part of the state as Worg said, I see them everywhere, it seems like no big deal.

    Cannon Beach is fancy, what a beautiful spot up there!
