Do animals need legal status as living creatures?

In most countries, for many hundreds of years, dogs and other animals have been only ‘things’ under the law. As things, humans had a right to buy, sell or dispose of them at will.

Now one country has taken the progressive step of giving all animals the legal status of ‘living creatures.’ This is a wonderful move as it means that animals will now have a special status or value. The law contains a lot of other good news for dog lovers as well.
