Pit bull Harley: Inherently adorable

Pit bull owners and advocates received some much-needed good news yesterday that The Maryland Attorney General's opinion is the court ruling that pit bulls are "inherently dangerous" has been stayed, meaning it is currently not in effect while the court considers the Motion for Reconsideration.

Fellow Examiner, Hillary Strilko, gave a detailed report of the events surrounding the decision.

"Tami Santelli, Maryland senior state director for the Humane Society of the United States, states, 'With this latest news, we urge landlords and property owners across the state to adhere to their existing leases with dog tenants. With the ruling suspended for the time being, landlords have no legal basis to evict their tenants who may own "pit bull type dogs."' - Reported by Baltimore Dog Examiner's Hillary Strilko.
