Bravo, Mark Buehrle: Pitcher Refuses to Risk His Dog In the Face of Ontario’s Pit Bull Ban

I live in the province of Ontario and don’t agree at all with the Pit Bull ban. It is not the breed, but irresponsible Pit owners who are to blame. Yet another reason for me to love the Jays baseball team, way to go Mark and don’t back down! 😀



Mark Buehrle is one of the very best baseball players, a starting pitcher with 13 years in the majors. He’s also one heck of a dog lover, with four dogs at home with his family, one of them a Bulldog/American Staffordshire Terrier mix.

It’s a Pit Bull, in short. And that Pit Bull can’t come with Buehrle to his new job as starting pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays, since Ontario bans Pit Bulls.

A conundrum, indeed. Buehrle didn’t ask to be traded to Ontario from Miami — in fact, he’s pretty upset about it. And how he can’t take his dog with him.
