There’s a new “dangerous” dog breed wreaking havoc among the streets of the UK, terrorizing everything in its path, and it’s got America in its name.
American XL Bully Facing a Ban
In a recent announcement, the United Kingdom is set to implement a ban on American XL Bully dogs.
Bully Dog Is a “Threat”
A strong statement was issued from British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who referred to them as a “threat to our communities.”
Multiple Reports of Terror
This decision comes in the wake of a growing public outcry, spurred by a series of unsettling incidents, one of which left an 11-year-old girl seriously injured.
Sunak’s Call for Legal Definition
Prime Minister Sunak has called upon government officials to collaboratively define the American XL Bully breed, seeking input from law enforcement agencies and canine experts.
Lack of Recognition by Canine Organizations
The American XL Bully breed remains unrecognized by prominent canine organizations.
Urgency in Regulatory Action
Prime Minister Sunak stressed the urgency of defining the breed, stating, “It is not currently a breed defined in law, so this essential first action must proceed swiftly.”
Timeline for Implementation
Sunak reassures the public by stating, “We will proceed to prohibit the breed under the Dangerous Dogs Act, and the new regulations will be enforced by the year’s end.”
A Recent Tragic Incident
The gravity of the situation was revealed when a recent attack, possibly involving an American XL Bully, resulted in a tragic fatality.
Sunak’s Concern and Public Sentiment
Sunak continued to express his concern, asserting that, “The American XL Bully dog poses a significant risk to our communities, particularly our children. I share the nation’s collective shock and distress over the recent, distressing incidents we’ve witnessed.”
Existing Breed Bans in the UK
Several breeds of dangerous dogs, including the Pitbull, are already banned in the United Kingdom.
The American XL Bully’s Origins and Concerns
The American XL Bully’s lineage traces back to the American pit bull terrier, which is what gives it the name and pushes people to believe the breed should be banned.
Breed vs. Owner Debate
They contend that the dogs may have inherited dangerous traits through breeding practices.
The Root Causes of Dog Attacks
Some believe that breed-specific bans often overlook the root causes of dog-related attacks, which primarily involve irresponsible dog owners who may train their dogs to exhibit aggression.
Historical Significance of the “Bully” Moniker
Notably, the moniker “Bully” for these breeds harkens back to their historical involvement in blood sports like bull baiting.
American XL Bully’s Distinct Features
These dogs are renowned for their muscular physique and robust bone structure, setting them apart from Pit Bulls.
