Perry Sound Residents may get Liceance Increases for Dangerous Dogs

*sigh* Just as you think you are adjusting nicely (I didn't say happily) to what we can expect to the Ontario Pit bull Ban, when you hear there may be more surprises in store. This is in the town of Perry Sound, where they are thinking of putting of the fee's for our (now called) Dangerous Dogs, dog liceanse fee's up. Where normally they pay $10.00 (WOW! That cheap compared to where I live!) for a non-dangerous dog, up to $50 for a dangerous dog. $75.00 if not altered by August 29th.
I can only imagine how high those fees will be in the bigger cities such as where I live as we already pay (I'm guessing again), but about $25 for an altered dog.
On one hand, it sounds like we will be able to adopt the pitties from the Humane Society, but at this rate, between what the adoption fee's are and then the shots and tags...well let's just say, your wallet pretty much determines if you can rescue a pittie or not.
Hopefully this doesn't catch on and they are still having talks about it.

There's another site I found throught the same site, called The Best of the Perry Sound Area, which btw...is a beautiful little town with a gorgeous area. It's called the Northern Playground with all the summer activities and summer excitement.
In there is a search of all the Pit bull issues going on. Just sounded funny to find them on a page that is advertising the BEST of their area. Take a look!

Yeah! I would say so too. The reason I don't care for forums, is they seem to be black and white, pro or con. It would be nice to hear some attempts of resolution to an issue rather than stating the same views over and over again. Resolutions help to fix problems, not arguing who is right or wrong.

I think banning "dangerous dogs" is ridiculous. It's the irresponsible owners who make the dogs dangerous. Yes, pitbulls, along with Rotties, and other breeds are more agressive than some other breeds. But, it is possible to have a gentle loving pitbull, it is just up to the owner to be responsible and know how to work with and train the breed of dog that he has chosen. People are stupid *sigh*

I couldn't agree more. Pitties require attention like children do. If you don't have the time to spend all that time with one, as well as socialization with people and animals at a young age and proper training...DON'T GET A PITTY. It's exactly as easy as that. Shasta was spayed at 5 months. She was brought up with 3 cats and LOVES SuperPets. The only thing Shasta would do, is lick you to death! Now she is know as a 'Restricted Dog' or a 'Dangerous Dog'. How unreal is THAT! And Shasta is not an exception to the breed. The majority of Pitties with responsible owners far out number the ones that are spoiling it for us. You know how they say, 'It only takes one rotten apple out of a barrel'...
Fortunately, we have gained some people to 'our side' because they took the time to listen with an open mind and then read nore about them.
I don't know if you have visited my Thruth about Pit bull page? It has an important message to anyone interest, http://www.geocities.com/no1conners/truthabout pitbulls.html
Hope you check it out.
