Several individuals in this area want to ban certain breeds of dogs and are planning to lobby the state of Florida to change the current law that prohibits any local breed-specific Dangerous Dog laws!

This has the potential to escalate into a major move to introduce breed-specific laws not only in Brevard but the entire state.

I need contact info and would have a copy of the Florida State legislation defining 'dangerous dogs' available here for future reference for those engaging in combatting this.
