Airline To Ban Certain Types Of Dogs

United Airlines will no longer allow certain breeds of pets to travel in the cargo hold on its flights, according to the Los Angeles Times. Starting June 18, the airline will ban certain breeds—including Boston Terriers, boxers, pugs and Pekinese dogs—“out of concern for higher adverse health risks,” the airline said. Studies have shown dogs with short noses are “more likely to have health problems while being transported on planes,” the Times reported. Persian and Himalayan cats will also be banned from the cargo hold. The airline said small pets will still be allowed in the cabin as long as its carrier fits under the seat. In addition, United will not transport pets to Las Vegas, Palm Springs, Phoenix, and Tucson in the summer months “because of the extreme heat in those destinations during summer months.” This comes after a 10-month French bulldog died on a United Airlines flight after a flight attendant ordered the pet’s owner to put the dog in the overhead-luggage compartment.  And remember, with hotter Valley temps coming, don't leave pets or children in the car!! ~Melissa
