Denmark bans 59 dog breeds

Level 24
May 19, 2008
Personally, I love dogs. And I am of the opinion, that a dog, if treated correctly, can be a great pet, even if it is bred to be a killer.

Denmark started out banning 13 dog breeds. Now they have banned 59 in total. These breeds are bred to fight, and therefor they are banned.
Even though the golden retriever is the dog involved in most bitting accidents world wide, this dog is still legal.
If you have a dog of this breed, and you had it before the law was made, you are allowed to keep it, but it needs to have a muzzle on when outside.
If however the dog gets puppies, you have until the legal age of sending them away from home, to find a place in another country where you can send them. If not, they get put down.
I think it's stupid, banning the dog breeds. I would much rather see that maybe people who wants to buy a breed like those that are banned, gets put up for validation, before they can buy a dog like that.

What do you think? And what is your countries laws on dog breeds?
