Title: Prescribed Breeds of Dogs
The Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 requires that if you own a dog that is one of these breeds, it must be desexed and whilst not confined to your premises have a muzzle securely fixed onto its mouth so that it cannot bite a person or animal.
These breeds must be under effective control by physical restraint, which means the dog must be on a leash which is no more than two meters in length.
It is an offence to sell, give away or advertises for sale a dog of a prescribed breed.
The maximum penalty for a breach of Section 45B (prescribed breeds) of the Dog and Cat Management Act 1995 is $5000 per offence.List
