This is why it is important when someone is asking about owning a pitbull or another type of breed that has bans, including the ones that homeowner's policies don't cover be told about these possibilities. I don't think it is much of a secret to anyone that watches the news that pitbull and pretty much the rest of the bull terriers and mixes are sometimes banned from certain cities/counties and looks like provinces in Canada. At least, this will get the word out to those that might have a job where they move around the country or out of the country. We would have chosen to live across the border and husband would have commuted some but maybe had an apartment in Canada to stay when commuting just wasn't the best idea and that would have made trips to see one another easier. Owning any dog has it inconveniences and that is part of pet ownership. We once had the chance to move to England because my husband was offered a good job but at that time, the dogs would have had to gone for a few months into quarantine so we passed on that opportunity even though a friend offered to keep both the dogs and the guinea pig for the two years we would have been there.

If the dog could be certified as a service dog, it may not matter. Of course this is another country we are talking about and the disability laws may differ. He would no longer be a "pet" but a service dog.

It's worth a try.

As much as I think Pitt Bulls get a rough deal, I would never encourage someone to falsify (spelling) a certification. Number one, it is wrong and number 2, you have no idea what could happen if the person gets caught...Sorry, this is a really bad idea in my opinion..

It is rather sad, but surely he must have known about the restrictions placed on pitts when he brought it home. He doesn't have to leave his family, that's a choice he's made.

He's had the dog since he was in Chicago with the Sox. Here it's legal to have pit bulls. When he went to Miami, he simply had to live in a different county, since they don't allow pit bulls there. He didn't expect to be traded to Toronto, where they don't allow pit bulls in the entire province. I admire him and his family for keeping the dog. And speaking as a Sox fan, we'd be happy to have him and Slater back any day!

And also the choice to live apart during the season was made by the whole family. That was their preference over turning the dog over to somone else to take care of. So sad they were put in this situation because of ignorance.
