AMERICAN BULLY XLs ADDED TO LIST OF BANNED DOGS IN ENGLAND

American bully XLs are now officially banned in England and government guidance has been released for current owners.

From next February, it will be a criminal offence to own an American XL bully unless owners have applied for exemption.

It follows attacks involving the breed.

From 31st December, it will be against the law to sell, abandon, breed from or give way an American bully XL.

It will also be illegal to have one in public without a lead or muzzle.

If your dog is less than one year old on 31st January 2024, it must be neutered by 31st December 2024. If the dog is older than one year on 31st January 2024, it must be neutered by 30th June 2024.

American bully XLs are now under the same laws as the American pit bull terrier, the Japanese tosa, the Dogo Argentinos and the Fila Brazileiro
