via SaveLennox - Lennox is a five year-old American Bull cross and who was taken from his loving family in Belfast, Northern Ireland and locked up because of the way he looks.
As responsible dog owners that also foster for numerous dog shelters, his family had Lennox microchipped, neutered, DNA registered, pet safe registered, insured and licensed every year with the Belfast City Council without fail.
In May 2010, Lennox was taken from his family home by the Belfast City Council because they believe he falls under the Dangerous Dogs Act. The Council without seeking any proper professional guidance declared Lennox to be a "Pit Bull Type" dog, and they wish to kill him simply because he has the appearance of this breed.
Lennox has never attacked anyone or anything, yet the Council have removed him from his home where he lived with his owners, their 11 year-old daughter, a two year-old female boxer, and various foster dogs.
It has been a year since Lennox was removed from his home, yet the Belfast City Council continues to hold him in a small cell surrounded by sawdust for bedding and his own feces.
Thousands of people around the world have rallied to ask for Lennox' release. Here's what you can do to help:
