Must Love Animals

In Honour of Lennox

7 Comments

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”.

My name is Kylie and I am passionate about animals and their welfare. My husband and I live in Bendigo, Australia and live with our three dogs - Rupie, Billie and Chelsea - all rescue dogs. I enjoy writing and aim to share health and welfare issues and updates as well as some short stories.

  5. Thanks for your support everyone – the story finally made our mainstream media yesterday – bit too late unfortunately – but at least the debate is continuing so that hopefully these laws based on fear and misunderstanding may be modified in some way so that innocent dogs are not being destroyed. Every day since Lennox was killed, I see another post about another dog in the same situation. So sad.

  6. I am so sorry for Lennox and his family. Worst of all, he will not be the last victim. May he rest in peace.
