Question

FaqAnswer

Yes, the following breeds have been declared a restricted breed in Western Australia:

  • dogo Argentino
  • fila Brasileiro
  • Japanese tosa
  • American pit bull terrier
  • pit bull terrier
  • perro de presa Canario or presa Canario

This bill bans the sale, purchase, transfer, breeding and advertising of dangerous dogs.  These dogs must be sterilised and microchipped within 30 days of this legislation taking effect; that is, from 30 November 2013.

There is no intention to require the destruction of restricted breed dogs that are not registered, as is the case in Victoria.  The emphasis in the Western Australian legislation is on responsible dog ownership.
