ARKANSAS – The City of Bentonville has
tabled a proposed ordinance which would ban “pit bulls,”
defined as American Staffordshire Terriers, American Pit Bull
Terriers, and Stafforshire Bull Terriers, from the city. After
receiving letters from several groups and model legislation
from AKC, the city attorney asked the council to table the ordinance
in order to evaluate other options. Concerned dog owners are
encouraged to contact City Hall in support of a strong dangerous
dog ordinance that is not breed-specific.
