Are Pit Bulls Banned in Puerto Rico?

Hi PetRelocation,

Am I able to bring my Pit Bull to Puerto Rico with me?




Hi Chris,

Thanks for your inquiry... while Pit Bulls have been banned in Puerto Rico for several years, the import requirements recently changed to allow the breed. 

Pit Bull travel does often require extra work and you will probably encounter restrictions in many places. If you're considering moving somewhere else with your dog you can review the list above and take a look at this Pit Bull travel resource to find out where you can go and where you can't.

Please contact us if you have any more questions, and good luck with everything.
