More Banned Dog Breeds in the United Arab Emirates
Recently the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (formerly Ministry of Environment & Water) have adjusted their approved list of banned dog breeds.
Already banned are:
- Pit Bulls (Stafford Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, American Stafford Terrier, American Bully),
- Mastiffs (Brazilian Mastiff, Argentinian Mastiff, Any Mastiff or Hybrid) and
- Japeenese Tosa or hybrid
- Wolf dogs or hybrid
Added to the list of forbidden breeds will be:
- Doberman Pinchers,
- Canario Presa’s,
- any mixed breed of one of the above
This new rule will come into place in the next half year. Please be aware of the fact that besides it being impossible to import these breeds, it will also be difficult or even impossible to export these breeds once the law is in place. ABVC will keep you informed if more has been revealed on these new rules.
