A Sky Update / Montreal

News

It’s a beautiful sunny Autumn day here. Hello, CEO Olivia here. Today I’m touching on two topics that are related.

The first bit of news is about Sky. You remember her, she was taken from her family under BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) simply because of her appearance. She would have been euthanized if not for her family launching a legal battle to get her home.

We’ve been following this story for a long time now. Sky has been isolated in a Police Kennel since April 2016 despite a Court Ordered Exemption in August of that year. So the legal battle continues. The High Court of London will be hearing Sky’s case on November 10th. That’s this Friday!

Sky‘s story & ways to help can be found at these 3 links:

A second bit of news is that the city of Montreal has elected a new Mayor. We here at Knotty Toys for Good Dogs wish to Congratulate Mayor Valérie Plante. The BSL & Pit bulls in particular were a prominent election issue. Plante’s party, Projet Montréal, promised to repeal the city’s year-old pit bull ban if elected. Wooftastic!

A dog is a dog, put an end to BSL everywhere.

An Update on Sky ~ End BSL Everywhere

News

Hello everyone, Olivia here. Today I’m marking a sad anniversary. Back in January I barked out about a Dog in the United Kingdom named Sky. Just to remind you, Sky was taken from her family simply because of her appearance. She would have been euthanized if not for her family launching a legal battle to get her home.

Sky has now been locked up for a year. That’s a very long time to be away from your family. Especially in dog years. Sky’s family did win a decision in court to have her exempted & sent home, but that decision has been legally challenged & so Sky is still not where she should be, at home with her family. The BSL (breed Specific Legislation) has been on the books in the Untied Kingdom for 26 years. That’s just wrong & backwards. A dog is a dog.

There is an online event this week to help Sky & raise awareness of the evil BSL. You can get involved & perhaps play a small part in getting Sky home with her family. You can also sign a petition on Sky’s Facebook page. Please help bring Sky home & end BSL everywhere.
