So as you know I have my Alexa girl which is clearly a bully mix of some sort. Well my fiance just got told we can have a house, for free (inherited) but theres bad news....its in Springfield MO which has BSL laws in place already. Now my question is..her adoption papers say american bulldog mix...is there any way I can get around the bsl?? they wont even allow her to live there if not and we are in a bad place and getting a home for free is something we cant pass up. I do not want to get rid of my pup...please help..any advice?

I'm not all on the up and up on these BSL laws that are in certain states. Wouldn't an American Bulldog be considered a "pit bull" type dog according to BSL? I'm pretty sure it would. That would be pretty sad to have to re-home your dog but I see your dilemma. Unfortunately, whether it's a pit bull, bully, or some kind of bully mix it will be labeled a Pit bull in the BSL eyes. I wish you the best of luck with everything and I hope you can keep your dog :(

Although I do not agree with lying about what breed your dog is, if that is what needs to be done to keep her then I would do it, but as Sharon stated you ned to know the exact wording of the BSL laws in Springfield, MO. I know a friend who shows APBT's that lives tehre and he has never said antying to me, hmmm gonna have to do some research for ya. Give me at least today and i will see what I can find :D

I live about 70 miles south of Springfield and that's the absolute closest I'd even consider living there.I hate everything about that town and wouldn't move there if someone would give me the nicest house there,but with that being said,good luck with whatever you decide to do.Personally,I'd sell the house and move out of town.

I understand,sometimes you just have to take what you can get.I wished I knew something to tell you about the BSL problem there but I'm not sure what you can do.I hope you can keep your dog.Good luck on that job interview.
