Amory, Mississippi Proposes Breed-Specific Registration of Bully Breeds and Their Mixes
Amory, Mississippi city officials are considering a breed-specific ordinance. According to the proposal,
“Certain dangerous breeds of dogs will…be required to be registered in the city. Some of those breeds include American pit bull terriers, Staffordshire pit terriers, American Staffordshire terriers, mixed breeds from these breeds and some others that will be named specifically in the ordinance when it is adopted within the coming month. No breeds will be banned in the city, however.”
Please e-mail Amory city officials and tell them their proposal is unconstitutional and that the dangerous dog provisions of the ordinance are more than adequate to police dangerous dogs without resorting to a breed-specific measure.
