Breed Specific Legislation Map

States in green signify that there is not BSL currently being enforced. This can either be due to state level legislation, or because there simply is no BSL in that state.

States in yellow signify locations where there is some sort of state level law that prohibits BSL from being enforced but there are cases that are being allowed due to either being grandfathered in or are part of a home-rule exemption due to the language of the legislation.

States in red signify that there is currently BSL being enforced and there is no state/province/territory level legislation that prohibits BSL.
