    Voices Carry for Animals #72: Guest- Dahlia Canes -United Against B.S.L.

    BSL stands for Breed Specific Legislation. It is a law or laws that ban or severely restrict the ownership of a particular breed. These laws declare an entire breed “dangerous or vicious” based on the actions of a few members of the breed.  Breed specific laws are often a knee-jerk reaction from politicians who want to say they are “doing something” to stop dog bite incidents and fatalities. These changes in laws tend to happen after a highly publicized dog attack takes place. These highly publicized attacks bring about a “perceived” need for more stringent laws governing the restraint of dogs. We all want to prevent dog attacks; however, breed specific laws have proven to be ineffective in the reduction of dog bite incidents. Breed specific laws do not protect communities from fatal dog attacks and/or dog bite injuries.


    “Breed Specific Legislation is an inhumane tool, used to deal with man’s destruction of their own fears. It targets innocent animals, that were not put on this earth to be judged by us.” – Dahlia Canes

    Guest will be: Patrick Bohler aka Dogfather- Host on The Pit Bull Advocate on Blog Talk Radio weekly 


    This is the last show of 2015. I want to Thank all of the former guests, callers, and listeners for all of your support in 2015. Couldn't do it without all of you.  Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Awesome 2016.

    In September 2002, Patrick adopted his first Pit Bull. Doing what any dog owner should do, he researched the breed, immersing himself in history, and discovering myths and eventually, breed bias. Battles with property management at his workplace, having the full support of his bodss and co-workers, he won and was able to continue to bring this dog he had named Bean to work every day.


    The following October he founded Sonoma County Residents Responsible About Pit Bulls (SCRRAP). In a press interview Patrick stated "We are a part social, and all advocacy group." The goal was to get other Pit Bull owners together for meetups and walks. SCRRAP was able to help other owners with training and socializing, as well as assisting in finding homes for dogs the were in need. 


    In March of 2012, The Pit Bull Advocate online Blog Talk Radio show was launched. Using the name Dogfather because "It's not about me... Being an Advocate. It was a way to draw attention to other Advocates and to rescue organizations without trying to just go out and make a name for myself.It's about the dogs, and those who are on the front lines every single day fighting for their rights, and for what is right.
