Michigan Senate Bill Would Prevent Cities from Banning Some Dog Breeds
More than 30 cities, towns and villages in Michigan currently have breed bans.
A new bill that's making its way through the Senate Judiciary Committee could change that.
The case in question goes back two years to a dog named Diggy, who was almost kicked out of the township of Waterford, which has been named one of the safest communities in the whole state...and they also have a pit bull ban.
A Detroit rescue was able to prove that Diggy was, in fact, an American Bulldog and not a Pit Bull, so he was allowed to stay.
The rescue says that breed bans can be a death sentence for dogs and are trying to help change the laws.
