The town of Welsh has decided to lift their ban on pits bills, and they are replacing the rule with a revised ordinance that puts more emphasis on a dog's actions.

If someone is bitten or attacked, the revised ordinance puts more responsibility on the actions of a dog and not the specific breed.

Under the ordinance, no one will be allowed to own a dog that has been deemed dangerous or vicious.

Any dog deemed vicious will not be returned to its owner.  The goal Welsh lawmakers say, is to protect people and other animals.

The law also says dangerous dogs must be kept quarantined for 10 days to ensure they do not have rabies.
