Please sign the petition for Dave's brothers, sisters and mother who were all euthanised. 😔🐶🐶🐶🐶https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/223784 link in our bio.
Dave spent the first 10 months of his life in police kennels along with his 7 brothers and sisters, they were all seized under #breedspecificlegislation along with their mother.
Once the #puppies were 10 months old, the whole litter were individually assessed to see if they fitted the criteria of a #pitbull type #dog
Four of Dave's litter mates were put to sleep as banned breeds, along with their mother.
Dave, his brother Ruben and sister Miss Piggy were the lucky ones, it was decided they did not meet the measurements or appearance of a Pit Bull type dog. They were released into the care of a rescue where Dave was adopted by Kim Older on 5th August 2017.
Kim says "When we first met Dave you could tell he had not used to being loved or cuddled, as I remember when I first bent down to give him a #cuddle he didn't know what was happening, although he quickly got used to them lol! He immediately got on really well with Nellie our #englishbullterrier so it didn't take long for us to come to the conclusion Dave was the one for us! He is a really gentle boy, has beautiful soulful eyes and is a perfect gentleman with Nellie, who if anyone knows #ebt are a breed of their own!" This is the reality of BSL, four #dogs die and 3 get to live, all from the same litter, you cannot deem a dog dangerous on appearance. NO short haired, muscly dogs are safe while this law exists #endbsl #endbslworldwide #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbulls #pitbullpuppy #pitbullsofficial #pitbullmix #puppylove #puppy #rescuedog #dogsofgreatbritain #allbreeds #instadog #dogstagram
