​​As a Veterinary Nurse in London I meet bull breeds on a daily basis I have nothing but love for these dogs.

After experiencing the reality of BSL, which expected me to euthinase healthy stray puppies and dogs because of what they looked like, I decided I had to do something. Killing dogs based on their looks benefits no one.

Education is key and evidence shows that this method works to reduce dog bites, our motto at the SaveABulls is 'Education, Not Breed Specific Legislation'.

I hope that you join our campaign and it inspires you all to take an active role in this and get veterinary and rescue staff, dog owners and politicians involved to highlight the many real issues that BSL causes.
