I have no doubt that Lennox is just one, well-publicized example of what has happened to numerous dog families affected by breed specific legislation, and I feel so, so sad by the misperceptions and biases that are perpetuated in what I like to think of as an era of dog advocacy, an era in which we understand better than ever the special bond our species and the canine species have held for so long.
I've heard a lot of people say Lennox and the media attention his case has received may help bring awareness to the way-too-common injustice of breed specific legislation, and I guess that's the best we have to hope for at the moment.
But that poor dog should never have put in the position to have been made a martyr.
I find the issue very upsetting, and not something I can speak thoughtfully (as opposed to vitriolically) on. But James W. Crosby is an expert, and he speaks thoughtfully where I cannot.
