SHREVEPORT, LA - I'm a dog lover and I recently took my dog to Dallas where he got to play with his buddy Claude for the weekend. Beau is a very gentle dog, but he can be very protective of me and my son (his Daddy). Beau is part pit bull.

When I was searching for Air BNB places, I noticed several have restrictions about the size of your dog and some even have restrictions on the breeds you can have in the home. I started doing a little checking and found several cities in Louisiana have bans in place for pit bulls. Other cities have listed some dog breeds as "dangerous."
