Save Lennox Campaign Points To Two Health Issues

Have you heard about the Save Lennox campaign?  It’s a sad story of a little girl’s dog in Ireland that’s been incarcerated.  The girl is disabled and the dog is her service dog.  I had the chance to hear Victoria Stillwell from It’s Me or The Dog (TV show) talk about this last night.

What struck me (beyond the story) were two things:

  1. The importance of service dogs within healthcare.  They now do a lot of things beyond simply help the blind.
  2. The rising issue of dog bites and the fact that breed specific legislation (BSL) doesn’t work.  Dog bites have gone up in areas where pit bulls have been banned.
