If you own a beautiful ‘box-head’ type dog, hug him/her a little tighter this morning. Yesterday Lennox became the victim of Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) at the hands of an Irish council, despite a world wide campaign to save him. His crime? To have the wrong look… his owners fought the council in the courts but sadly yesterday Lennox was ‘humanely pts’ after spending 2 years in a council pound. RIP Lennox, we will continue to campaign to abolish this cruel legislation in your honour.
In the words of Deb Tranter from Oscar’s Law:
“Lennox will be a martyr, much more dangerous to the reputation of the judicial system in death than he ever was to the general public while alive”.
