I was doing some research to see if the Caucasian shepherd dog was restricted in my city,its not. But when doing the research I noticed that the U.S. is pretty strange when it comes to banning or restricting dog breeds. Almost every single city or state ordinance regarding "dangerous" dogs nearly singles out the pit bulls(and related breeds) and disregards other dogs that are just as vicious. Whereas other countries with restrictions on certain breeds usually have a ban on a wider variety of dogs not just the pit bull. Is it due to the lawmakers not knowing or just that since few have imported dogs such as the Caucasian Shepherd its not a threat? I can get a pitbull for $300 but its going to be a minimum of $2500 to get a Caucasian Shepherd not counting transportation of it.
