Breed Specific Legislation

Over time, it has become recognized that certain dog breeds are more prone to attacking and exhibiting aggressive behavior than others. Because of the greater threat these dogs pose and the fear in some communities of the consequences of allowing people to own particular dogs, laws have been adopted to restrict or ban the ownership of certain dogs in certain places. Termed Breed Specific Legislation, these controversial laws are aimed at curbing dog attacks and keeping neighborhoods safer.

If you or a loved one was attacked by a dog, an experienced attorney can help you understand dog bite laws and whether or not the owner is to blame for the attack. To speak with a qualified attorney who may be able to help you get the compensation you need, contact a Michigan pet bite attorney at Ravid & Associates, P.C., today at 877-PET-BITE.

Dogs Targeted by Breed Specific Legislation

With breed specific legislation, communities enact laws which restrict or ban the ownership of certain breeds of dog that are identified as particularly dangerous. In some areas, dog owners who already own these breeds are allowed to keep the dog, but bringing in new dogs is prohibited. The dogs which are typically banned include:

Currently, nearly all states have municipalities which ban or restrict dangerous dog ownership. If a dog owner violates these laws and, as a result, an innocent person is attacked by the dog, not only can they be held criminally liable for breaking these laws, but also financially liable in a civil lawsuit.
