Commonly referred to as the DDA, the law was introduced in August 1991. The Legislation is composed of different sections: Section One of the Dangerous Dogs Act applies to the following:
Seek qualified legal assistance immediatly. Contact us for advice and support. If your dog is seized it is normal for your to have very little information. It is unlikely you will be told where your dog is being kept or be allowed to visit. The authority dealing with your case will often only contact you if there is something to tell you regarding your case. this is possibly the hardest part for most dog owners missing out on their dogs day to day life.
Whilst in kennels, whoever has the responsibilty for your dog also has a duty of care towards them, to ensure they are kept safe and well. This means your dog should have adequate food, water, exercise and receive veterinary treatment if needed. If your dog needs worming, vaccination boosters or any other medication you must inform the relevant person/authority and they must ensure your dog recieves that treatment. It is wise to follow up any requests in writing and keep a record of any correspondence. Once taken your dog will need to be seen by an appointed Breed I.D. expert who will examine the dog to see if it does, in hisor her opinion, fall within the bracket of 'Pit Bull Type'
