What To Do If Your Dog is Seized Under BSL

If your dog is seized by authorities under BSL (Breed Specific Legislation) such as the Dangerous Dogs Act, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING, even if pressured, as you may be voluntarily giving them authority over/custody of your dog. Do not answer any questions either, contact either of these organisations below:
