If you’ve managed to find this blog, you likely love dogs. And if you love dogs, surely you’ve heard the story, or at least seen this photo of Tillery & Diggy. Diggy is the name of the dog FYI…
If you don’t know the story you can read the latest from the Washington Post by CLICKING HERE.
There is an online petition available to lift the Dangerous Dog/”Pitbull Ban” in Waterford, MI which will keep Diggy & Tillery together. Here is some information about the petition from the website:
“About This Petition
Diggy is an American Bulldog that was at the Detroit Dog Rescue for 100 days before Dan Tillery came and adopted him. Dan snapped the photo above to show their joy for becoming a family, and the photo immediately went viral on the Internet. But now, the Waterford Township is threatening to take Diggy away because they claim owning him violates a local dangerous dog ordinance.

This ordinance has been in place for many years. Many families have had to give up their family pets due to this law. It is important for all of us to come together and be a voice for not only Diggy the American Bulldog, but all of the pets and people that have suffered heartache in the past years. We must remember, it is not the animal that is the beast, it is man that creates the beast. Aggressive dogs come in all shapes, sizes, and BREEDS. This should be handled on a case by case basis.”
