Lowell, MA: Council to discuss proposed BSL, May 3

Lowell city council members have suggested enacting a breed-specific law. During the May 3 council meeting, members will hear about dangerous dogs from the public safety committee. This is likely to include discussion of a breed-specific law similar to the one in Boston. The public safety committee consists of three councilmembers, two of which are known to be strong and vocal supporters of BSL.

Residents and locals are encouraged to attend the council meeting and speak against breed-specific measures. BSL was rejected by council several years ago after considerable public outcry, but more recently, several councilmembers have voiced support for BSL.

Next city council meeting: May 3, 6:30 PM, City Council Chambers, City Hall, 2nd Floor, 375 Merrimack Street, Lowell, MA 01852.

  1. Good day I am writing to you from Europe to the country of Poland. I can not believe that dog American Staffordshire Terrier breed is inherently bad. I already have another dog of this breed is already 12 years old and is loving all people dog. My dogs never want to bite people. They love children and are very wise and merry. My dogs are pure breed based in a FCI. These dogs that bite, it must be some MIXSY, very badly treated by the people, there is no other explanation. Because if they were bad by nature, it also mje such that they are, and it is completely different. This may not be wine race at 100%.
