There is an interesting sidebar on this story and that is an update about Rambo and Brittany. (Read previous blog posts Part 1 and Part 2 and Part 3.) If you scroll down the page, you will find the following headline on the left "VET TO RULE IF DOGS ARE PIT BULLS". The City of Brampton is now having an "independent veterinarian" come in to decide if these dogs are "illegals" or not. The article states "If the report determines the dogs are pit bulls, Branco and Gaspar will have a short period of time to find a home for them outside the province. If the report is inconclusive or finds they are not pit bulls, the owners will get their dogs back. "

In 2003, a dog named Bandit mauled a young boy. The boy was the grandson of Bandit's owner. He went to live at Toronto Humane Society along with many other animals. Bandit has been the source of many controversial discussions in recent years since a Judge ordered him destroyed after the 2003 mauling that left the young boy requiring 250 stitches. On Wednesday, Bandit was euthanized. If you are interested in reading the entire story, see the article at the Toronto Star Notorious pit bull Bandit put to death
