BSL affects home insurance!!

From one of our adopters

I just got dropped from my homeowners insurance and another policy due to my dog’s breed.
The state came out with a new list of dogs not insured on policies. It is 12 of them. Pit Bulls, Akitas, Dobermans, Huskies – Siberian, Alaskan Malamute, Presa Canarios, German Shepherds, and a few others.
They told me to either get rid of the dog or no insurance. I told them that was not an option.
I got rid of the insurance. I could go from an HO6 plan to a DP2 plan and a price increase or do a joint plan (multi-peril )with citizens for windstorm and homeowner’s insurance.

Just so people know there are options. Many insurance carriers can find the plan that will work. They can chose a multi-peril plan that does not discriminate against animals

I live near Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and they just added Huskies to the breeds not allowed on base! I am outraged! Ridiculous that some officer is ignorant to breed traits and thinks Huskies are a dangerous breed. There needs to be a vet or national dog club to educate these idiots that just add breeds to the dangerous breed list without researching....

omg this is crazy! This is really getting out of hand! Its time the descrimination stops. I have never heard of Huskys falling into this catagory, I have heard the akitas being labeled this way. What a bunch of hog wash!!!!!
