Posted by Chantelle Mackney on

Do you have a fact, story, or statistic that would make a good #BSLbyte? Share it with us! We will post your submissions on Fridays (#FollowerFriday). Thank you to Sydney for today’s contribution.

Did you know that only 50 genomes out of 20,000 account for a dog's physical characteristics? That means that less than 1% of canine genomes contribute to physical appearance. BSL is based on looks, but there is no reason to believe that genes for physical appearance correlate with behaviour.

Looks do not determine behaviour, yet policy makers are enforcing laws that target dogs based on less than 1% of their genetic makeup. Education is key.
