XL bully dogs will be banned in Britain from December 31 this year, ministers confirmed today.

New laws prohibiting the killer breed were formally laid in Parliament today under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

If you want to keep your Bully after the ban, you must apply for a Certificate of Exemption.

Owners have until 31 January 2024 to do so.

Anyone who defies the ban faces up to 14 years in prison.
