Welcome boywonder, why would the police try to take your dog? Do you live in an area where there is BSL? You may post your issue here.

hello thankyou for getting back to me, yes i live in london where there is BSL..
heres the story of what happened

i got a dog named capone hes a mix breed of mastif and staff but resembles a pitt bull ive had him for 7 years since he was 2 weeks old and never has he ever had a fight or attacked a person hes the most friendliest dog ever and i know all owners say that but he literally hates violence to the point where if me and my brother even raise our voices he would try and comfort us, just typing this is making me cry i dont think people realize the bond between a owner and a dog ive been the person who sleeps and wakes up with capone take him out 4 times a day and feed him, however last month my dad took him out for a routine walk and another dog who was off the leash came and attacked my dog, someone called the police thinking it was a planned dog fight i ran downstairs after my dad rang me and the other owner got away so the police stopped me and my dad taking capone to the vets and made us wait in the blazing heat for about 2 hours all while my dog was injured and then finally a dog unit officer came down and he seemed like he enjoyed telling me he was taking my dog away from me, he told me that he was going to take him to the local station where a vet is going to look at his cuts and once he gives the green light he would bring him back to me he said it wont take longer then 2 days so as a abiding citizen i listened to the police officer and put my dog in a cage thinking it was the right thing to do ( every night i go to bed crying thinking that im the reason my dog is absent from me and he thinks i betrayed him) its been a month now and ive been ringing up so many different officers who keep misleading me and making excuses of why its taking long to get a result on my dog, like the Olympics and the carnival, too cut a long story short i spoke to the officer in charge of the case and he told me that a supposed expert has said that my dog is a pitt and how i should sign a disclaimer form basically giving all rights the police , i refused and now hes saying that im going to have to go to court and fight my case which could be another 2 3 4 5 months who knows and i still cant even get to see my dog and have reassurance about hes well being, police officers are meant to be honest and caring i have experinced anything but that
i have contacted deed no breed and left a message as no one was avaliable ive been in contact with dda watch aswell is there any thing i should do , this past month has been the worst of my life, ive had so much other things that were stressing me like university and health issues but id always have my best friend at home waiting for me but the police have took that someone please help.

Thanks for sharing your story this is so sad!! What happened to the owner and his dog that attacked yours I do hope some follow up is being done on this? I mean just because your dog 'looks' like pit bull doesn't mean it is I think the only way out of this dreadful mess is to have a DNA test done This BSL stuff needs to be abolished and now. Fingers and paws crossed for you and your best friend Good luck m8 and please keep us updated!!

Good Idea JGLI I would seriously get advice from a solicitor who deals witn these types of cases or even contact your Citizens Advice in your area. And even contact your local MP to see what they can suggest!

I have just had a look at this site seems good
And looked at the 1991 DDA it's flawed in plces it was designed primaraly for specific breeds and for owners of these breeds to protect the public from dog attacks including children. The thing is
though your dog didn't attack so something is wrong here straight away! Do you know from your dad what breed of dog attacked your dog? I would know wait to see what this site can do to help. But I woud contact some one high up in the police station where he is held and make some noise
