Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.


How do I find out if certain areas have BSL?

Cassie AmosCassie Amos Silver Spring, MDPosts: 36Member
I am going to college soon, and will be living off campus so I can bring my pit bull with me... But how to I find out if there are laws pertaining to pit bulls in a certain area? I have tried searching on google but I can't find anything, even on certain areas that I know have pit bull bans. Any help?

    The best way to find out is to contact the humane society in that area & ask them. Sometimes the info you find on the net is outdated. You can google humane society of (enter county here) & look at the web page for contact info. That is what I have found to be the best & most reliable way of finding out if there's BSL in an area. Because you can even ask if they will be passing a BSL law soon. Good luck!

    I am not sure, but wow your dog is cute! I wouldn't have anything but a "pit". They are sweet, easy to train and so loyal. Good luck!

    As stated By Cadillac, Under-stand-a bull has pretty up to date info. Call the .SPCA,Humane society or town hall. Good luck.
