According to a survey commissioned by Best Friends Animal Society, 84% of Americans believe people should be allowed to have any breed of dog they choose.

Dogs are individuals, with individual temperaments and behaviors that are not based on what they look like. Dog breed-specific legislation is wrong, and breed ban laws do not keep the public safer.
