Brampton pitbulls(?)

Families of seized dogs gain support online.

The Gaspars and Brancos have been told there were no complaints about their dogs, and no accusations of aggressive behaviour, running loose or biting. Similar to what happened to Rambo, an animal control officer who went to collect a licence fee from the Branco home spotted Brittany and started asking questions about her lineage.

Both dogs were seized, and have been held at the city’s animal shelter ever since.

A dog doesn’t have to be a pitbull to be labelled as one under the city’s bylaw. It defines a pitbull as a pitbull terrier, Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire bull terrior, American pitbull terrier, or “a dog that has an appearance and physical characteristics that are substantially similar to those dogs.”

Both families are distraught about the seizure of their pets.
