Charlie Machete is Lennox
Animal lovers the world over were heartbroken this week when breed specific legislation (aka breed discriminatory legislation) in Northern Ireland led to the death of a pit bull type dog named Lennox.
The same happens to thousands of dogs every day in U.S. shelters. Lack of space and resources, lack of adopters and BSL all contribute to the death of healthy, beautiful animals that would make fine human companions.
Charlie Machete doesn’t know what kind of dog he is for sure, but like Lennox, he’s been to death row and he’s been labeled as a pit bull type dog. And he thinks it’s lame that anyone would discriminate against him or any dog based on supposed breed.
For more information about why discriminating against specific dog breeds isn’t the answer, check out this BSL guide from Stubby Dog.
