Last night, Garden City, KS (population 27,000) became the latest community to repeal it's breed specific law. The law had previously designated American Pit Bull Terrers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers as being "vicious".
The mention of breeds has been removed from the ordinance and now the definition of vicious is based solely on the behavior of dogs -- including dogs that have a propensity to attack or have bitten.
"Pit Bull" owners will no longer have to post "vicious dog" signs and can now walk their dogs without muzzles.
Congrats to Garden City on their wise decision and in joining 5 other cities so far this year in repealing their breed-specific laws. The tide really is turning.
