Time running out for Pit Bull Terrier

There's just one day to go before the deadline's reached on finding a home off-Island for an American Pit Bull Terrier.

Champ could be put-down tomorrow (Tuesday) by officials from DAFF, unless he can be homed in a counrtry where the breed is still legal - with Ireland the most likely refuge.

The dog's been kept at MSPCA for the past four months but Tuesday has been set as the final deadline before the law takes its course.

Lynne Renshaw is manager at the MSPCA.

She says whatever the outcome for Champ, Manx law on dangerous breeds needs looking at (audio file attached):
