A 2014 national survey revealed that 84% of Americans believe that they should be able to own whatever breed of dog they choose. Unfortunately, some cities enact dangerous dog laws that deprive people of their property - their pets - simply on the basis of breed. Many of these ordinances lack due process protections. More and more 42 U.S.C. 1983 A.D.A. and Fair Housing cases are being filed to combat the illegal taking of pets, and many are successful. We all want safe and humane communities, but how do we achieve it?

Such an interesting and informative course. Thank you!

Very good program. I learned how difficult it is to determine a breed of dog just based on physical looks.
I enjoyed this course very much.
