The DDA should be replaced by more informed and effective legislation which recognises that ANY dog can be dangerous, does not discriminate against dogs with certain physical characteristics and recognises that the sole responsibility for a dog’s behaviour rests on the person in charge of that dog.

Why is this idea important?

The DDA has resulted in 100s of dogs being killed needlessly, purely because they look as if they "might" be Pit Bull Terriers. Others have cost the taxpayer £10000s because they have been incarcerated for months, sometimes years, awaiting the result of court cases.

Without the DDA, the so-called Pit Bull Terrier Type would not have become so desirable as an illegal status dog.

The DDA is itself responsible for the huge rise in irresponsible breeding of this type of dog and the "demonization" of  the purebred Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

Condemning a dog on looks alone is unacceptable.
