Weaver tables bills to ensure responsible pet ownership and the protection of dogs

VICTORIA B.C. – In 2015, Buttons the Therapy Dog - who worked at hospitals comforting and cheering up patients - was so aggressively attacked by another dog that he had to be immediately put down.

The owners of the violent dog had been instructed to keep their pet secured and muzzled because of an incident with a different dog just a few months prior. When Buttons walked by with his owners Yvonne and John McDonald, however, it had been left unrestrained. Because of existing B.C. laws, irresponsible pet owners seldom face any consequences for the actions of their dogs. Since losing Buttons, Yvonne and John have been advocating for the need for animal liability laws in B.C.
