Keeping TABS on Breed Specific Legislation.

Breed Specific Legislation or BSL: We, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier owners who originated these pages, dedicate them to the fight against all legislation designed to ban or discriminate against dogs of any breed. Our breed is amongst the first contingent of breeds banned, confiscated, and euthanized. Owners of other breeds may not be caught in the first wave, but as the Reverend Martin Niemoeller said about Hitler and the Nazis:


“In Germany they came first for the communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up.” 

Martin Niemoeller
(1892-1984)


The Bull-Breeds Manifesto

By Steve Stone

"The author encourages Bull-breed fanciers, fighting the good fight against the injustice of BSL, to use relevant the information and argumentation from the following articles when writing about or discussing BSL with others whether in person, via email, or in the print/electronic media. They are further encouraged to copy these documents electronically or print them as hard copy for use in such efforts, providing that doing so is for non-profit purposes."

This world map (below) links every country to its own page which outlines the current status of BSL there. Click on a specific country, or, alternatively, click on that country in the alphabetical list. Each linked page summarizes local BSL ordinances and laws as well as links, when possible, directly to the governmental documents. It also lists Anti-BSL organizations and websites.

We include media links, kennel club links, breed-specific club links, and rescue links as well as a link to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) information base which provides a map and detailed information on each country.
