Animal welfare sector rejects calls to add Staffordshire Bull Terriers to the Dangerous Dogs Act

The Kennel Club, RSPCA, Dogs Trust, and Blue Cross have collectively released a statement urging MPs to reject calls from “misguided activists” that Staffordshire Bull Terriers be added to the list of banned breeds under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

The animal welfare organisations said that they strongly believe that current breed-specific legislation should be repealed and replaced with legislation which targets irresponsible owners rather than basing it on the appearance of a dog.
