HERE'S MY 2 CENTS. I TOTALLY AGREE THAT DOGS SHOULD NOT BE LABELED AS PROPERTY! MY BEAGLES ARE NOT JUST AN ITEM I OWN, THEY ARE MY CHILDREN, THE ONLY CHILDREN I HAVE!


I DO THINK THAT A FORCED FIX WOULD HELP WITH THE OVER POPULATION AND EUTHANASIA OF SO MANY DOGS IN SHELTERS. ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE A MIXED BREED.


I HATE THE THOUGHT OF DOGS BEING TIED OUT ON A TETHER. I THINK A LARGE, KENNEL IS BETTER. A WHOLE FENCED IN YARD IS BEST CAUSE THE DOG CAN GET MORE EXERCISE. THATS WHAT I HAVE, BECAUSE I DONT WANT MY DOGS WANDERING OFF AND GETTING HIT BY A CAR, OR SHOT LIKE THE POOR LITTLE BOXER BELOW FOR BEING ON SOMEONE ELSES PROPERTY (THATS SO SAD). OR GET LOST AND NEVER SEEN AGAIN. I WOULD BE
DEVASTATED.

I LIKE HOW WE CAN GO EVERY 3 YRS ON A RABIES SHOT, CAUSE ONE OF MY BEAGLES HAS EPILEPSY, AND SHE HAS HAD SEIZURES BEFORE A DAY OR 2 AFTER VACCINES. SO THE LESS FREQUENT THE RABIES VACCINES ARE, THE BETTER FOR HER. LIVING IN THE COUNTRY AND CLOSE TO THE WOODS, I NEVER KNOW WHAT KIND OF ANIMAL MAY WANDER IN WITH RABIES AND GET INTO MY YARD NEAR MY DOGS.


THE DISCRIMINATING AGAINST A CERTAIN BREED IS JUST WRONG. IT IS HOW A DOG IS RAISED AND TAUGHT. I KNOW FROM EXPERIENCE. OUR BEAGLES LEARNED FROM OUR OLDEST BEAGLE HOW TO BE AGRESSIVE TOWARDS ANYONE WHO CAME CLOSE TO OUR YARD/HOME, BECAUSE THATS HOW MY BROTHER TAUGHT HER TO BE (WHEN HE OWNED HER). A FEW OF THEM WILL BITE IF SOMEONE IS BRAVE ENOUGH TO COME IN THE GATE WITHOUT MY HUSBAND OR ME THERE. ITS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT CUTE LITTLE FLOPPY EARRED BEAGLES, WOULD BE SUCH AGGRESSIVE GUARD DOGS! NO ONE WILL SNEAK IN ON US THATS FOR SURE. BUT JUST BECAUSE A DOG IS CERTAIN BREED, DOES NOT MEAN IT WILL ACT A CERTAIN WAY. ISNT MOST DOG BITES REPORTED ACROSS THE U.S. BY RETRIEVERS? DONT SEE ANYONE LABELING THEM AS VICIOUS!

My daughter had her boxer shot 6 times yesterday by a neighbor. The only thing the dog did wrong was go onto theproperty of the neighbor. my daughter today tried for a warrant for cruelty to animals and was told by the Lincoln County Tennessee Sheriff's personnel and court personnel, the man had a right to shoot the dog just for being on his property.The Humane Society told her that have to uphold the police report. Come on six times on a dog that was already running home for his life and this man empty a clip on him firing all over his yard with small kids outside.If this be the case, I guess he can get away with saying he shot and killed a trespasser on his property. Tell me one dog that does not explore anothers yard when he gets a chance at being loose. Tell me what this world is coming to when deputies on the scene think it is funny and laugh openly because somneone called on a dog shooting. I am in law enforcement and have been for many years, I do not believe this is a funny matter. I believe the man has aan anger issue, and next time he may escaluate and shoot a child. Would that also be considered funny to these deputies, and Sheriff's Dept. Thank You for reading this. May it save a dog's life in the future, then poor Harley who would have been 2 years old on the 4th of July did not die in vain

Our 4 lb 5 yr. old terrier mix was killed in our kitchen by 2 Sher Peis who on this 3rd entrance to our home killed our dog. the 2nd offense only one came in and bit her. The 1st offense the owner was walking one an allowing the other to roam. The dog got her head in out apt. before I stopped her. the last 2 times the dogs were not retained. The worst part is my daughter a 19 yr old with Down Syndrome was (2nd) taking Cindi Loo out for a walk. the (3rd) time bringing her home. Both times, she unfortunately witnessed. We had to move. She still is having nightmares. This could have been avoided!

Understanding the law regaing restraining a dog by chain or rope I believe for 3 hours a day, I would like to know about caging a dog all day or all night without regards to the weather. Is there a law for that too. Thank you.

People have to accept responsibility for their pets, as they do for their automobiles, and their children. If you hit something with your car, you are responsible, if your child breaks a window, you are responsible. Why are pets any different. My pit bull is much less dangerous than my children. Legislate against MY dog, and it wont be the dog thats dangerous!

I think dogs behave how their owners treat & train them. It is up to the owner what kind of dog they want to have. Devil Or Angel?

I have a dog that likes to run away every time I let her out of my sight.She wont stay in the yard she jumps the fence,so I tie her up when I have to go out.Now I am told I cant do that,But I cant keep her in the house all the time.So what do I do? Let her run wild.So she can get hurt or hurt someone else?

It disgusts me the way people act about pit bulls. My 7 year old dog is a pitbull-rottweiler mix. When I lived in Florida, b/c he is all black, I labeled him a lab mix and even his vet never knew the difference. But people acted completely different about and around him, we no longer live in the state of FL, but he is the least vicious dog I've ever seen and would never pay 100,000$ liability insurance b/c someone is scared of a pitbull without ever even knowing one! All dogs can attack people, even Chihuahua's are vicious!! No one is outlawing them are they?!

I can I help dogs being abused in my neighborhood without saying who I
am?
I wish "owners" could be chained up themselves and see what it's like

I had no idea that the rabies vaccine had adverse reactions. My vet never mentioned that. I still would have it done, but it would be nice to know.

We should ban all big dogs from evry state, and crack down on cat laws instead.

i think these laws are too soft on these people who cause harm to innocent animals who just want a place to call home.it is very sad the way people treat animals.i think animals should be treated with the respect they deserve.i am a big dog lover i just love the company of dogs. i have a 1 year old chihuahua and i love her very very much.what is the point of people having dogs if they can't treat them with respect.like pit bulls i can't stand the horrible reputation they have.they're dogs. i love pit bulls my brother-in-law had a pit bull named conan. he was a very sweet dog who would not harm a child. he rather play with children than harm them.my brother even has a little boy. lil john .everyone in my house loved conan and still do. always and forever gone but never forgotten.gone from the world but not our hearts.
