My husband is in the army and we travel from state to state every two or three years. We currently live off post and were trying move on post. We were all ready to move, had the paper work filled out, and the very same day a nationwide ban on every military post was sent out for 6 breeds of dogs. One of the breeds was a Doberman, and since we own a Doberman, we can now never again live on post. Since my husband will be in the army for 10 more years this is very upsetting to us. Yes we can live off post, but along with that we give up a lot of convienience - and all because we own a Doberman. I'm looking for people to help me pettition this ban and would like to know if anyone here would want to help?? Just let me know and we can exchange contact info...thanks.At a time when BSL is being rejected elsewhere as a failed ideology, and with all that's asked of them already, what a shame that some army families must deal with this. Where is General Patton when we need him?
