BSL Alert in Spain (Madrid) and Wallonia (Belgium)

At a time that we are convinced that it has been long proven that there is no such thing as a "dangerous canine breed", again initiatives for Breed Specfic Legislation (BSL) were announced in Spain (Madrid) and in Belgium (Wallonia).   The Spanish (CRE) and Belgian (BRK) IFR-Memberclubs  have said to fight those proposals. The IFR-Board will therefore not intervene directly with the authorities that have announced those legislative initiatives but has offered its help to the Memberclubs concerned as I am sure that all other Memberclubs will do too.  Will be followed up upon.
