Breed-Specific Laws Make Housing Most Difficult for the Poor

 

In short, we have enough barriers to housing without erecting more out of pettiness and fear. To his credit, New York State Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski (D-NYC) is trying to bring down one of those by backing legislation that would forbid landlords and public housing from banning dogs based on their breed or weight.

The law may be framed in general language, but when you get down to it, this is all about Pit Bulls. Zebrowski himself owns a Pit, and is vocal about their suitability as pets: “[T]here really is no evidence a certain type of breed is dangerous,” he told CBS. “You could have a docile shepherd, or you could have an aggressive Maltese. It’s really how they’re trained and brought up.”
