Re: [shaun_sia] Ban on 8 breeds of Dog

The ban, I do think it is fair, not so much for people looking for these breeds but for the breed themselves. As a common rule of thumb, people buy puppies because they are cute and then when the pup grows up they cannot handle it or when it does something it get a bad name. Secondly, breeding of these pups, pups are sold to anyone unlike proper breeders who actually take the trouble to find out about the new owner if it is eligible to have that particular breed of pup. Recently at a pet shop, a young lady got herself a cocker and boy some of the things the sale person said about the breed, wow I was thinking of getting half a dozen of the breed myself, a real good sale pitch. The dog is not noisy does not bark..... well for one a cocker always bark at anything, why, because it is suppose to, their purpose. In short apply that to the eight breeds, I think it is fair for the sake of the breed.

Re: [shaun_sia] Ban on 8 breeds of Dog

not to say not fair, but not considerate. they just cant understabd by adopting a dog into our home, it is just like adding 1 more family member, forcing ppl to get rid of our family member, too CRUEL.

Re: [Toy] Ban on 8 breeds of Dog

I do agree with wat u said ... by adopting a dog is just like bringing a new member into the family ... same go to the pet .... If not under control ..all pets will be a nuisance to the public, even to the extent of threatening human lives due to disease epidemi. To sum up ... it is the responsible owners we are looking for ... the fault does not lie with the pets...
By banning the breeds ... we are merely treating the symptom not the root cause.... wat happen next if a doberman or german shepard bite somebody??? Things will never end ....

Re: [shaun_sia] Ban on 8 breeds of Dog

Well, maybe some dogs in the 8 breeds can be used for guard dogs. so i think it's not fair. Some of the ban breeds are also good for gentle pets and good guard. Dogs need care and love instead of sending them to the SPCA or sumthings else.

Re: [khoo262] Ban on 8 breeds of Dog

you are right, i came across 1 incident that a cat owner who own many cats, instead of feeding the cats at her own home, she does it in front of another dog owner's house!

the dogs of corse will bark seeing a stranger feeding cats in front of them, but wat more surprising is this cat owner complaint & organised a campaign & ask ppl to sign say the dogs are noisy.

then her cats will pee & poo in front of the dog's owner house, but wat she did is called up the reporter & tell the reporter the dog's owner wash all the pee & poo out to the street very dirty!

wat type of world we are living? with so many insane ppl...
