I can move anywhere in the USA and I've heard there are places that do not allow bully breeds. I have PTSD due to two pit bull (verified by owners) incidences and I am not interested in exposing myself or my family to this particular type of dog, anymore. I know there are places which restrict these animals, but I'm interested in input as to whether the laws are actually enforced. My current town is slightly lax. Does anybody have any input? Please don't tell me to get to know a Pit bull or you have a good one. Too many bad owners. Right now, I'm going to look into Liberty, MO. Anyone have any tips? Money isn't an issue. Thanks in advance everybody.

Last year we saw a pit in downtown denver (I was only in town for the day). It did not appear to be a service dog. So it's not clear to me how much the rules are enforced, though I wouldn't risk bringing my own dog into denver.

Although Denver has BSL some surrounding towns like Boulder do not. So Boulder has more pits than it would otherwise have.

I've noticed the popularity of pit bulls is very regional. They are extremely common in California but I didn't see any in Iowa even though there was no BSL in our area. This may be due to the fact that pits are not really farm dogs and don't do well in the cold. So if the OP cannot get past his issue, selecting an area where they are just very rare might be equally as good even though there are no specific laws banning them.

I'm sure they are here (cuz they are in the shelter), but I've never even seen one walking with an owner in our neighborhood for 27 years.

There are towns throughout the U.S. that have these insane laws. And there are groups who are working non-stop to repeal them. And they have been successful in repealing the laws in some major cities. In short, no, this bubble you wish to live in doesn't exist. I'm sorry what happened to you. It appears to have affected your life greatly and I hope you have a therapist who is able to help you move past this.

I have no real numbers or statistics to back this up, but I know that Miami-Dade has laws against owning pitt bulls but it seems to be quite often I see in the news about a pitt bull attack on someone or a breeding ring or a dog fighting ring being busted up.
Where I live in Hollywood (just north of Dade) we have no breed restrictions and I don't know of there ever being any problems in the news.
Although most of the dogs in the shelter are either pitt bulls or some breed that looks just like a pitt. I feel sad for those poor dogs.

Following on this, breed specific laws are being struck down by the Courts nationally so where you might find one today that law may be rendered void tomorrow.

Miami Dade county does not allow them, not that some don't sneak them in, but it would be in the worse areas and you can report them, unfortunately people dump them in neighboring Broward/Fort Lauderdale county and the shelter there is full of them that eventually are put down.

Also a lot of insurance companies do not allow them or charge a higher home insurance premium if someone has them. If you can find if your town requires rabies and registration you may be able to find out if they are legally there.
