The city of Dorval has proposed a new by-law concerning "potentially dangerous dogs."\nThe draft includes a list of 11 dog breeds that would require particular care if the by-law was passed.\nTake a look at the 11 dog breeds included on the list below.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nA new draft by-law was introduced at Dorval's City Council meeting yesterday that would implement new animal control regulations in the city.\nMuch like Montreal and Quebec, the city is hoping to increase citizen safety, however, the major difference is that Dorval has decided to list specific dog breeds as part of their legislation.\nWhile the previous legislation listed a "dangerous dog" as one who had, in the past, "caused the death of a person" or another domestic animal, or a dog who had been "declared dangerous by a competent authority," the new draft by-law is much more specific and goes on to list 11 dog breeds that are also considered to be "potentially dangerous dogs."\nThe conversation around specific dog breeds was one of much contention during these legislative discussions in Montreal and Quebec.\nThe conversation eventually led to Public Security Minister Geneviève Guilbault to admit that targeting specific breeds raises more issues than it helps, starting with the difficult job of establishing the breed of a mixed dog, for example.\nAs CJAD News' James Foster eloquently put it, "Both the City of Montreal and Quebec government reversed their decisions regarding specific legislation, deciding a dog's actions are what make it potentially dangerous, not its appearance."\nThe draft by-law indicates that a "potentially dangerous dog," is one who has "attacked a person or animal, attempted to bite a person or domestic animal, or exhibited aggressive behaviour."\nThen, the by-law goes on to indicate that a "potentially dangerous dog" is also a dog of one of the breeds listed below, or even a cross of one of these breeds.\nThe dog breeds listed in the draft by-law are as follows:\nPitbull\nRottweiler\nGerman Shepherd\nBulldog\nMastiff\nHusky\nLabrador Retriever\nBoxer\nDoberman\nChow Chow\nAccording to CJAD News, the draft also indicates that these dogs would be required to wear muzzles when outside of its dwelling, unless a "competent authority" has indicated that the dog has a "mild temperament" and does not have a "propensity to attack."\nREAD ALSO: Montreal Police Looking For Multiple Suspects Wanted For A Fatal Shooting In LaSalle\nThe by-law also outlines regulations for dog owners. A citizen that owns one of these dogs is responsible for being in control of the dog at all times, meaning the owner must have the "physical capacity necessary to ensure constant control over the animal," which also includes being able to stop the animal from escaping.\nView this post on Instagram What you name this big guy? 📷 : @graoficial Follow us @dailypits ⏪⏪ for more . . . #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulls #pitbullpuppies #pitbullpuppy #pitbullgram_ #pitbulldog #pitbully #pitbullofficial #pitbull_love #dogs_of_world #dog #dogsofinstagram #dogs #dogstagram #dogsofinstaworld #dogmom #dog_features #dogs_of_instagram #doglover #pits #pitbullove #pitbullife #pitbullsarelove #pitbullsofig #pitbullfriends #pitbullsofinsta #americanbully #terrier #pitbullterrier A post shared by Daily Pitbulls (@dailypits) on Sep 16, 2019 at 8:04am PDT\nOwners would also need to clearly display a "pictogram" outside of the dwelling where the dog lives to properly warn others about the dog's presence.\nView this post on Instagram I ate too much today 😂 Tag someone who needs to see this cutie 💗 Follow for more! 📸 From: @babypet_vibes #chowchow #chowchows #chowchowsofig #chowchowgallery #chowchowlove #chowchowpuppy A post shared by chowchow (@chow_chow_s) on Sep 13, 2019 at 2:50pm PDT\nDorval's next city council meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 21st at 8 p.m.\nYou can find information on their meetings and the topics discussed at the meetings on their website here.\nThey open the floor for a public question period at every meeting, which allows citizens to voice their questions and concerns about the goings-on in the city, so if you have questions or concerns about this proposed legislation, you should definitely consider attending.
