If Provo wants to protect residents from dangerous dog bites without singling out any breeds, a spay/neuter law for all dogs would be a wise move.

Spaying and neutering dogs can significantly reduce their aggression and desire to roam, which may help explain why unaltered dogs of any breed are three times more likely to bite. As an added bonus, such a law would help prevent more unwanted dogs from being born. This would save taxpayers thousands of dollars and would prevent countless dogs from facing euthanasia.
