Pit Bull (Search & Rescue) Heroes!
Pit Bull Rescue Central ^

Posted on 04/04/2009 2:00:59 PM PDT by Peace4EarthNow

Cheyenne, Dakota and Tahoe

One of the top-rated Search and Rescue (SAR) dogs is Dakota, an American Pit Bull Terrier. Dakota is owned by Kris Crawford, who has 2 other pit bulls that are also certified SAR dogs!

Dakota is so good at what she does, NASA handpicked Kris and Dakota to assist in the recovery of the Astronauts after the tragic 2003 shuttle disaster. Kris and Dakota were also involved in the Laci Peterson investigation.

Kris and her team have been involved in many cases and have made national news on several occasions. Cheyenne, Dakota and Tahoe are also certified hospital therapy dogs. They can often be seen at pet fairs, shows, schools, etc. It is important to Kris to have the girls out educating the public about the true spirit of the Pit Bull and teaching children canine safety.

Animal Planet recently aired a “Pet Story” edition on Kris Crawford as did National Geographic’s Dogs with Jobs. You can learn more about Kris, Cheyenne, Dakota and Tahoe at www.forpitssake.org

Pit bulls are so American. Give them a job to do, and they do it with gusto until it's finished. It's so sad that some give them such horrible jobs and completely ruined their image.

“Cheyenne, Dakota and Tahoe...”

You might be a redneck if you name your dogs after pickup trucks.

If people move into my area with pit bulls, those people will be moving again soon.

" Pit bulls are so American. Give them a job to do, and they do it with gusto until it's finished."

Pit bulls originated in England, and they are banned in England. They were intentionally bred wrongfully by criminals for the wrong kind of "job."

How many children have pit bulls killed?

What crimes were broken during the breeding of the American Pitbull Terrier? Wonder why the British named it the AMERICAN Pitbull Terrier? You’d think an informed guy like you would know a fun fact like that.

I guess nothing can be American, since everyone here, if taken back far enough, originated elsewhere. Is that your contention? Who knew?

I noticed that all the rescued named in the post were delivered dead on arrival. Or were they? Could these vicious killers have been the cause of death? Was the cause of death suspiciously identical to canine devourment disease? Think twice people. Don’t be a “rescue victim” of this trio of death angels. These ain’t no Saint Bernard.

How many? None. They were all “rescued” til they ran out of blood.

Were you guys born to the title of neighborhood god or was there an election?

(Make an aggressive move at my American Staffordshire Terrier and the Miniature Poodle will eat your lunch, the Staf would probably think you were just too "challenged" to know how to play nice.)

But you really should read the "Beware of Owner" sign before taking any action.

You know what’s really hilarious? They want to ban dogs ‘for the children...’ Yet there are actually places operating at this moment whose entire purpose is to kill unborn children...and they waste their dog hatred on the internet, all in the name of children, of course. They’re so fired up that they want to eliminate the relatively small risk of dog attack to children (ever looked at how many people are killed by horses/livestock? Stay in your neighborhoods, its death out here), meanwhile the places that pump out 3-4 THOUSAND dead babies each day continue unabated. What a sick joke...

Oh no, there are people of several different races who have raped, robbed, murdered, tortured, mutilated, stabbed, shot (etc., etc.) other people! And other people of several different races out there have joined gangs & also kill people, intimidate people, etc.!

Some people of different races have gone on shooting sprees, killing 10-15 people at once! A couple of people of one race blew up a building in Oklahoma!

So, wait...I guess since there are bad seeds in various human races out there that do these seriously horrendous things, then that must mean that every single person that are of the race of these bad people must be really bad also! That means there are no good people in the world whatsoever!! What are we to do?!?!

(do I really need to put any sarcasm tag here? LOL!)...

The statement above makes no more sense than what some of you pit bull haters are actually believing...there are “bad seeds” in EVERY single breed out there, but there are way more good than bad. ‘k?

Remember, PEACE on earth, not hatred against others (people or animals)...

Hope you all have a good night!

:-)

XIN LOI !,,,

I guess you didn't know that Thugs run a puppy-mill

15'6” (to the fence) from my back/side door in a section 8

HUD welfare house,,,

They raise 3 litters (10? each)at a time IN THE HOUSE,,,

That's 30-35 + 6-8 chained in back,,,

He gets $500.00 Each,,,TAX FREE!!! (3 litters per year ?).

I guess you didn't know that my yorkie and I were chased

back in the house by one of them months ago(made it by 10’).

I guess you didn't know that I now have to walk Harley

in the backyard now while armed.(fear for our lives),,,

Called LEO’s out here twice!,,,No Help!,,,

Called local Animal Control and they did come out and took

3 of the “breeders” and put them down as I was told,,,

Monday ,,, I will call again and have 2 more of the

“breeders” put down,,,(code is 4 and they have 6? left)

That will make Harley and me very,very happy,,,

5 Total,,,We Be Runnin’ Up A Body-Count!,,,

Hopefully they will take 2 males,,,then,,,

When they have 2-3 litters IN THE HOUSE,,,

I drop a dime on Chuldruns Services and have their

Chuldruns taken away,,,

Section 8 house and Welfare will be gone when that happens.

The owner will not be able to rent section 8 anymore,,,

GAME OVER!...;0)

It appears that you're in a really bad 'hood, hero. My neighborhood on the Rockies doesn't have any pit-bull-like creatures in it for long. ...only miles of visibility, private roads, cameras, and a good mix of professional folks and ranchers. We keep it clean.

Thanks for the post and ping. Once again Pits showing their true nature. To all the posters who want to kill and ban Pitbulls, get a clue hypocrites. All I see on here is how much most hate big government and want the government out of their life, then turn around and want the government to ban a breed of dogs. Try learning about the breed before condemning them.
To the comment on how many kids have pitbulls killed, let that go. It is tragic for when any child is killed, but quit using them as ammunition for your cause. Seems to me there are wayyyy more dangerous things out there that can harm a child then a pitbull or any dog for that matter.

I like how you replied on this thread, but conveniently ignored the question I posed directly to you in response to a claim you made here. Should I go ahead and assume it was bad information?

Which laws were broken in the breeding of the American Pitbull Terrier? Careful, this is swing number 2.
