Duncan was a sandy colored dog who came to a shelter called Blue Cross as a stray. He was skin and bones but they were able to nurse him back to health. Everyone who knew him called him a gentle giant
. Tragically, the shelter was forced to put him to sleep by law enforcement because he "looked dangerous." Sign the petition to demand a repeal of Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act to save other innocent dogs like Duncan.
When Duncan arrived at the shelter, he had sores on his legs and a bad infection - it was clear he had not known a loving home. But he took easily to the staff, learned his commands and won over hearts of everyone who treated and cared for him. He would have made an amazing companion animal for a person or a family, but his life was cut short instead.
The Dangerous Dogs Act is meant to protect the community from dangerous dogs, but Duncan wasn't dangerous - he was a 2-year-old sweet dog. He simply appeared to look dangerous.
That distinction is the difference between life and death for animals everyday in the UK.Help get justice for Duncan by signing this petition to repeal of Section 1 of the Dangerous Dogs Act.
