"PIT TYPE EXPLAINED
Under current legislation, many innocent dogs are seized each year simply because of the way they look. 

These dogs are well behaved family pets who have committed no crime other than being assessed as an illegal breed which is banned in the UK under the 1991 dangerous dogs act. 

This Breed Specific Legislation does little to protect the public from so called "dangerous dogs" neither does it address the root problem which is mainly due to irresponsible owners with untrained dogs. 

Any dog which is seized and assessed as an illegal breed or crossbreed will be destroyed although, under the 1997 amendment, owners can apply to a court to have their pet registered on the ‘Index of Exempted Dogs’ but this is solely down to the judges discretion. 

This is what the UK law classes as "pit type": 

Ears folded forward or sideways. 

Muzzle not pointed. 

Broad wedge shaped skull. 

Straight solid front legs. 

Broad deep ribcage. 

Well muscled thigh. 

Long hind legs. 

Tail – low down in hind quarters – hangs like "pump handle". 

Short single smooth coat. 

Height 45 – 55 cms. 

If your dog fits this description it is classed as "pit type". 

If your dog is seized.. Sign nothing. 

If you sign, you are giving permission to have the dog destroyed!.

**Footnote ** – The above descriptions FIT MANY breeds of dogs dont’ you think ?
