|Who We Are|
stopBSL is a group solely for canine lovers & artists, a place where canine enthusiasts can share dog related artwork in effort to raise awareness about breed-specific legislation, also known as BSL, to encourage responsible dog ownership & to demote the undeserved stereotypes among man's best friend, the dog

We are for responsible dog ownership, responsible / ethical purebred breeding, we also wish to promote adoption & rescue instead of buying from irresponsible / "backyard" breeders & pet stores

We do not believe in breed discrimination, profiling or stereotypes; we look to discourage discrimination & dismiss myths through education & raising awareness; we are here to provide our members with accurate need-to-know information as well as a wide variety of resources on the different aspects of responsible dog ownership

We are anti-BSL & pro-canine!

Not only do we the administrators here at stopBSL strive to be the most beloved American Pit Bull Terrier & bully breed advocacy group on DeviantART, but we also strive to be the overall very best pro canine group that dA has to offer, as complimented to us by countless dedicated members who truly feel that our hard work in this group has paid off and then some by providing the dA public with more than just a place to share artwork, but also a place to raise awareness about breed-specific legislation and dog breeds targeted by breed-specific laws, to educate viewers about what it takes to be a responsible pet owner, the importance of responsible breeding practices, to encourage adoption / rescue, to be there for members in need of advice and for those to share inspirational stories about man's best friend

stopBSL is unlike any other canine support group on DeviantART!
|What Is BSL?|
BSL, also known as breed-specific legislation, is a law or ordinance passed by a legislative body pertaining to a specific breed or breeds of domesticated animals. In practice, it generally refers to laws or ordinances pertaining to a specific dog breed or breeds. - Wikipedia

Breed-specific legislation refers to laws that regulate and restrict what breeds of dog citizens residing within certain municipalities can and cannot own, breed-specific laws are proposed and adopted in failing effort to reduce bites and attacks inflicted by dogs and to increase public safety. Breed-specific legislation comes in two forms - breed bans and breed restrictions. To learn more about breed-specific legislation, please see our very own introductory article:
o An Introduction to BSL
|What Breeds Are At Risk?|
Understand that the American Pit Bull Terrier, Rottweiler, German Shepherd Dog and Doberman Pinscher are not the only breeds of dog affected by breed-specific legislation; in fact, the Great Dane, English Mastiff, Chow Chow, Siberian Husky, Fila Brasileiro and Anatolian Shepherd are just a few among the many other breeds of dog often subject to breed-specific laws and other forms of discrimination. For the most accurate list available on the web of what dog breeds are affected by breed-specific legislation in the United States, Canada, & more than fifteen other countries worldwide such as Norway, Bermuda & Spain, please see stopBSL’s very own collection of targeted breeds:

!RARE! Breed of the Month
stopBSL administrators work together to submit a monthly article featuring less common, rare and even unheard of breeds of dogs to our members through our "Rare Breed of the Month" also referred to as RBotM by our administrators - a monthly article created to educate our members on various rare breeds of dogs, we have been proudly featuring these amazing, lesser known dog breeds to our members since early 2011 and we plan to continue for as long as there are many, many breeds out there that most of the general public are completely unaware of; as of mid 2012 RBotM got even better when we were finally able to include images and thumbnails in our articles, giving us the privilege to compliment these written entries with beautiful photographs of these amazing dogs! And as of January 2012 we have begun a new mini-feature to our RBotM articles called the "Targeted Breed of the Month", which shines some light on the various breeds of dog that are targeted by breed-specific legislation and other forms of discrimination, highlighting some basic yet interesting breed facts, all of which we hope our members will like! Through the "Rare Bree of the Month" we wish to introduce new breeds to our members, so we hope that all members and new-comers will continue to enjoy these features at the beginning of each month!

| Pet Adoption & Rescue |
Here at stopBSL we proudly support pet adoption and rescue and wish to promote adoption / rescue over purchasing from irresponsible / "backyard" breeders and pet stores. Every year, in the United States alone, roughly ten million animals end up in our nation's shelters, and only a portion of those animals are lucky enough to make it out alive, so next time you decide you want to add a pet to your household, please consider adopting from your local animal shelter or rescue organization!

Because we support and encourage adoption and rescue, here at stopBSL we have our very own Pet Adoption Promotional Artwork folder dedicated to pets that are available for adoption through rescue organizations, animal shelters and city dog pounds in effort to help find homes for those animals.

We also have our very own The Rescue Dogs of StopBSL folder dedicated to those dogs that have been rescued and adopted into loving homes with families that will cherish them forever. If you have a dog that you saved from the city pound, rescued from the local shelter, found on the streets or adopted from a rescue organization, make sure you add your dog's photograph and story there!


We are also very proud supporters of responsible, ethical breeding of healthy and temperamentally sound purebred dogs, thus we have a folder called The Champions of StopBSL, which is dedicated to showcasing all the fine purebreds that belong to members of this group! Please see our article "What to Know About Reputable Breeding" to learn a little about responsible breeding!

the Azawakh





What is an Azawakh?

An African sighthound of Afro-Asiatic type, the Azawakh originated in Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso. Raised in the Sahel region of the Sahara desert, they are named for the Azawakh valley. Azawakh means "land of the north". They are the guardians, hunters and companions of the Tuareg and other ethnic tribes of the southern Sahel.



History & Origin

The breed was first imported to Yugoslavia in the early 1970s by Dr. Pecar, a Yugoslavian diplomat stationed in Burkina Faso. The dogs could not be bought, however, Dr. Pecar received his male as a gift from the nomads. He later bartered his services as a hunter, by killing a bull elephant who had been terrorizing the tribe, in exchange for a female Azawakh. The French military and civil servants also played a significant role in exporting the Azawakhs to Europe. France is the patron country of the Azawakh under Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) rules.



The Azawakh made its debut in the United States in the mid-1980s. The first litter was whelped on October 31, 1987 by Gisela Cook-Schmidt (Reckendahl). These first American Azawakhs were all red or fawn with white markings. The first brindles came to America in 1989, with the first brindle litter whelped November 27, 1990 by Deb Kidwell (Kel Simoon). In the mid-1990s, a parti-color male was imported from Burkina Faso and in 1997, a parti-color and sand litter which was bred in Mali, was whelped in Alaska. Parti-color and brindled parti-colors are becoming fairly common in the US.

The show history of the Azawakh began very soon after its original importation to Europe. They were first shown in the early 1970s under FCI rules as a variety of Sloughi. On January 1, 1981, they were accepted as a bona fide breed and were referred to as "Sloughi-Azawakhs". In 1986, the Azawakh was finally recognized for the unique animal it is, when FCI dropped the word "Sloughi" from the name.

In June 30, 2011, the Azawakh was recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) for competition in the Miscellaneous Group. The breed is fully recognized to participate in all AKC companion and performance events. The Azawakh is also fully recognized by the United Kennel Club (UKC).



The American Azawakh Association is the parent club for the breed in the US. Although the AAA does not recognize the FCI Standard for the breed because of its color limitations, the dogs can be shown in any FCI recognized country under FCI rules which allow only sand to dark red and brindle, with all other colors disqualified.

Appearance & Structure

The Azawakh has almond-shaped eyes and a slender frame. They move with what is described as a feline gait. They should weigh between 33 and 55 pounds (15 to 25 kg) and have a height of 24 to 29 inches (61 to 74 cm). They have a very short coat that is almost absent on the belly and their bone structure and musculature should be transparent beneath their skin. The hips should always be at the same level or higher than the withers and it is a major fault for the hips to be any lower.



The Azawakh is found in a wide variety of colors including red, blue fawn, grizzle, brindle, blue, and black. They can also have white markings that include Irish marked and particolor. The AKC and UKC allow any colors found in Africa because of the wide variation.

The Azawakh's light gait is considered a notable breed characteristic, as well as their double suspension gallop.



Temperament

When discussing the temperament of an Azawakh, consideration should be given to individual personalities and contributing backgrounds, both genetic and environmental. However, there are several general characteristics common to the breed. Described in a Dog World article as a "warrior class dog", they have the intelligence and heart to protect. When approached on their own turf, they are vocally intimidating. In situations where their duty as guardian isn't necessary, their reactions may range from friendly, to mildly curious to arrogantly indifferent. Although generally not outgoing, several in the US have found the opportunity to make social contributions as therapy dogs in nursing homes and rehabilitation centers.

They seem to possess an uncanny combination of total loyalty and independence. Each new situation presents the potential for the struggle between the dog's natural desire to please and his prideful desire to do things his own way. A firm, fair hand is called for. Properly socialized and trained, the Azawakh will live harmoniously within the family and community.



A well socialized Azawakh is affectionate, gentle, playful, subtle and very loyal to its owner. Some Azawakhs, having bonded with one particular person, do not change ownership with ease. Azawakhs are usually cautious with strangers. They typically observe for a while before approaching.

They are pack oriented and form complex social hierarchies. Unlike many other sighthounds, they are pack hunters. If one senses danger, it will alert the rest of the pack and chase off or attack the threat under the lead of the alpha dog. It is said they have tremendous memories and are able to recognize each other after long periods apart. They prefer the company of other Azawakhs but seem to accept other breeds of dogs as well. They do have a high prey drive so caution should be taken with smaller animals.

Affiliates



:groups: | Hello Fellow dA Groups! | :groups:

Here at stopBSL we will happily affiliate with most other groups regardless of theme / topic, so please feel free to send in a request to affiliate with our group!

stopBSL does not automatically accept affiliate requests; our administrators carefully look over each & every individual group that sends us an affiliate request before approving it. Should we decide to decline a group's incoming affiliate request, that group will be notified with an explanation for our decision within the comments section of the correspondence item.

Please understand that we are not necessarily obligated to accept affiliate requests if we feel as though the group in question sends a bad / negative message or if it in any way promotes / encourages what we wish to discourage here at stopBSL, such as pro-BSL groups or anti-dog groups, as well as any dog / animal groups that provide their members with inaccurate or false or misleading information, so we may decline any affiliate request should these circumstances arise; this also most definitely includes the majority of fellow anti breed-specific legislation groups & pit bull support groups, because we see several of these groups sharing false / inaccurate information & spreading /promoting misconceptions about pit bulls, other targeted breeds and breed-specific legislation, which is very irresponsible advocacy, which we do not tolerate here.

And so we kindly ask all to please understand why we just cannot affiliate or associate stopBSL with such groups unless those groups are willing to change their information, and in that case we would be happy to help out with; but if not, then we will simply have to decline the affiliate request.

I just wanted to let you guys know, that as a rather recent owner of a doberman (since 13.08.2014), I appreciate this group a lot. When someone in the street gives me crap unnecessarily, I can visit this page and feel better because I'm not alone.

You also provide a lot of useful information to everybody, dog owner or not! I appreciate that, too. :heart: I may not comment on the blogs, but I still read them.

Thanks for existing and being a quiet (and not so quiet) force of support.
