Lakewood, OH - Lakewood City Council has passed an ordinance banning new pit bulls and canary dogs. Under the ordinance, pit bulls already owned by Lakewood residents can stay, but only if those dogs are registered and kept in compliance with existing vicious dog laws. DogsBite.org has tracked the twists and turns of Lakewood's process in passing this ban. Below are the stories:

A big THANK YOU to all those law breaking pit bull owners that showed up for the meeting and called themselves responsible.
The pit bull's biggest enemy is not the media conspiracy or the uneducated, hateful victims, its their owners.

Nice! A wave of applause rolling across the town this morning. Just a few mad and pouty faces on the usual drama queens, but here's to hoping they keep their promise and leave. (Of course they probably won't, but there's always hope.)
Powers for President!
