I have read with interest, numerous topics of discussions regarding the above and the list of breeds which are currently under review. I would like to add my thoughts on this matter, since working with dogs every day of my life, I see first hand the trouble that can be caused by ignorant owners. Firstly I would like to say that ALL breeds should be supervised at ALL times in public places, not just those which are constantly mentioned in earlier posts. Any dog can attack, regardless of size, and ALL can be dangerous. Jack Russells can be extremely snappy, but they have great characters and I am only using Jacky's as an example because of their size. I have witnessed a Yorkshire Terrier grabbing a German Shepherd by the ear, granted the damage may be minimal but nevertheless an injury did occur, and all because the owner was busy chatting to a friend leaving her dog unsupervised. Luckily the German shepherd - mine, did not retaliate, but I can just imagine the uproar, had he done so! I hope and pray, that a law is passed making it illegal to allow your dog off lead in public places. This would certainly protect these much maligned breeds, who are a potential targets from ignorant owners who allow there dogs cart blanch to cause chaos by allowing them off lead. Yes, Labs and Retrievers seldom have unsound temperaments, but when off lead, they do not understand that leashed dogs are leased for a reason!
