| WHO WE ARE |
#stopBSL is a group solely for canine lovers & artists, a place where for canine enthusiasts can share dog related artwork in effort to raise awareness about breed-specific legislation, also known as BSL, to encourage responsible dog ownership and to demote the undeserved stereotypes among man\'s best friend, the dog.
We are for responsible dog ownership, responsible purebred breeding, we also wish to promote adoption and rescue instead of buying from irresponsible breeders and pet stores.
We believe that no dog is born bad and no breed should be discriminated against simply because of one dog\'s misunderstood actions.
Welcome to !RARE! Breed of the Month 2012!
Now in the year 2012, we are going to continue featuring a new rare breed each month like we have been, but this year we are going to be featuring a breed of dog found on The List of Targeted Breeds as well with complimentary information and photographs!
Featuring January's !RARE! Breed of the Month
the Aidi / Chien de l\'Atlas / Atlas Dog
This North-African dog, originally used as a flock guard and protection dog to defense nomads and their belongings, also exhibits strong scenting ability, making him a reliable hunting companion. His thick, dense coat is adapted to the most rigorous weather conditions, and also protects him against jackals and other predators.

Featuring January's Targeted Breed of the Month
The Boerboel is a molosser (mastiff) type dog found to be a victim of breed-specific laws and is banned in Bermuda and Denmark.
The Boerboel is a large dog that is strong, confident and muscular with a distinctive, blocky head. Despite its size, it is the most agile of the mastiff-type breeds. The word Boerboel means \"Farm Dog\" and it serves as a capable working dog as well as a loyal companion in its home country of South Africa. The skin of a Boerboel should be dark on his stomach and under his fur, as well as the roof of his mouth, which protects against heat and sun. The coat is short, dense coat can be brindle, brown, cream, reddish brown or tawny.
