Refusals to grant homeowners insurance for dog owners may soon be a thing of the past

"Massachusetts’s legislation is presently working on a bill, which would make it illegal for insurance companies to refuse homeowners insurance to people who own a specific breed of dogs. This bill will protect responsible pet owners, and will still allow insurance companies the ability to protect themselves, by adjusting rates, or refusing coverage, to homeowner who’s dogs have been legitimately deemed “dangerous” based on tangible incidents, and not inequitable dangerous dog regulations.

Discrimination related to dog breeds is in itself an active legislative bill, due to ongoing controversy supporting that it’s “whose dogs” and not “which breeds” are perilous within our communities."
