Yesterday Montreal voted to ban Pit Bulls and Pit Bull type dogs in its city. The new bylaw is due to come into effect soon and all existing dog owners will have to comply with regulations and obtain a licence. But while dog owners across the world shout 'deed not breed' at the city and the officials who passed this new bill, here are 7 dogs showing how they feel about it.
Shame on you Montreal.
Heartbroken for the dogs who will suffer as a result.
Who's really the more dangerous - the human or the dog?
Shame on Montreal for passing this obscene archaic law banning all "pit bull looking" dogs with blocky heads. The bylaw will kill thousands of innocent dogs without improving public safety. Breed specific legislation is unethical and has been proven to not work time and time again. Ban the humans breeding, abusing, and abandoning them - not the dogs.🖕Montreal.

This dog is saying what we all think. BSL doesn't work.
Shame on you! It's sad to think that Zeppelin's brothers and sisters now have to have a muzzle on in public and a 4 ft leash. She will be walking without a muzzle and a 6ft leash. Don't visit South Bend Mayor Coderre, you'd be greeted with licks and kisses. #pitbull #montrealbullies #montrealpitbull #pitbulllove #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulladvocate
These dogs are praying for an end breed discrimination one day for the next generation of dogs prejudged based on their looks alone.
