Full Answer

The decision as to whether a particular dog has sufficient traits to be banned will be made by police or council dog expert. The decision is made based entirely on the appearance of the dog. Mixes of mastiff and pitbull type dogs are called bandogs. Bandogs look somewhat similar to most of the dogs on the banned breed list.
