Another dog added to banned list

The government has added another dog breed to the banned list in New Zealand.

The Perro de Presa Canario can no longer be imported, after being responsible for two known fatal attacks in the United States since 2001.

However, the Department of Internal Affairs isn't aware of any of that breed of dog being in New Zealand.

They say the move is precautionary, because the dogs tend to be bred to exhibit aggressive behaviour and they could inflict serious injuries.

Other dogs on the banned import list are the American Pit Bull Terrier, the Dogo Argentino, the Brazilian Fila and the Japanese Toso.
