The Maryland SPCA has heard that the Maryland State Court of Appeals has issued a response to the motion for reconsideration. We are greatly disappointed to learn they are affirming their original decision with the one change that it no longer should include “mixed’ breeds”. It is still unclear how they are defining a “pure” pit bull. This ruling negatively impacts both humans and pets in Maryland. Residents should not have to choose between their home or their beloved family pets. We will continue to urge the specially-formed task force to meet on this issue before the regular Maryland General Assembly session convenes in January.
