Sir Patrick Stewart has run afoul of UK dog laws and he’s not happy about it.
His American pit bull terrier Ginger was not allowed into the UK recently, angering Stewart. “About eight months ago a dog came into our life and changed everything, but unfortunately, because of our breed, we could not bring her to the UK,” he said. “She was a rescue dog in California, but she’s a pit bull and there is this stupid ruling about breed-specific legislation and pit bulls are banned.
“I understand why it was put in place, but it doesn’t address what the real issues are about the possibility of dangerous dogs. In most cases, and certainly in the case of pit bulls, it is not the dog that is the problem, it is always the owner.
Stewart plans to fight for a change in the law.
