Fort Drum HousingFort Drum, NY - Another military base has passed a breed-specific law to help keep on-base housing safe for children. Dog breeds "deemed aggressive or potentially aggressive" can no longer be kept on Fort Drum. The list of prohibited breeds includes: pit bulls, rottweilers, doberman pinschers, chows and wolf-hybrids. Existing owners will be allowed to keep their dogs as long as the animal does not demonstrate aggression or have a history of aggression.
Please see a growing list of military bases with breed-specific laws.

Just like what we saw when the Fed's required the rescues that took Vick's "Million Dollar Babies" maintain $1 million in liability insurance for the life of the dogs.
The Federal Government (taxpayer) is on the financial hook for any maulings that occur in base housing areas. Base housing areas are more densely loaded with kids, than the typical neighborhood.
