Cheyenne, Dakota and Tahoe
One of the top rated Search and Rescue (SAR) dogs is Dakota, an Am Pit Bull Terrier. Kris Crawford, who has two other pit bulls that are also certified Search and Rescue dogs, owns Dakota. Dakota is so good at what she does that NASA requested 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, in addition to their work as SAR dogs, are also certified hospital therapy dogs. They can often be seen at pet fairs, shows and schools, informing the public about their work and education about the Pit Bull breed. 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, as most fatal dog bite incidents involve children.
One day while outside in the yard with one of her kids, Weela suddenly body-slammed 11-year-old Gary and sent him flying into the yard. Garys mom, Lori, who was watching from the window saw the whole thing and was very surprised. Weela had always played so well with the kids, and she quickly rushed out to see why Weela would have done such a rough move given her usually calm, gentle demeanor. It was then she saw a big rattlesnake sink its fangs into Weelas face, and she immediately understood Weela had saved Garys life by pushing him out of the way! Weelas good deeds did not stop there, a few years later, Weela saved the lives of 30 people, 29 Dogs, 13 horses and 1 cat. Heavy rains caused a damn to break on the Tijuana River. Weela pulled 30 to 50lb loads of food across the river to a tiny island to feed the stranded animals the entire month they were there.
One night two armed men broke into Melissa Williss home. They pointed a gun at her while her son stood behind her. Weezie, their male pit bull, immediatelycame to the rescue. In addition to growling, barking, snapping and otherwise causing a scene, Weezie placed himself between his family and danger, and with every advance by the men, he pushed his family backwards until they were to the exit. He kept the armed robbers focused on him so his family would be safe.
Are dogs more valuable or do they have more “rights” than cats? Pigs? Cows? Mules? Ferrets? Hamsters?
yes.. more than pigs, cows... ferrets, and hamsters...
but about the same as mules, horses, cats, and monkeys
A proud $50.00 contribution goes to the local pitbull rescue!
Who gets to decide such things? Pigs are more intelligent, on average.
When a pitbull rips out the throat of a toddler, and no one is around to hear the screams, does it make a sound?
Wow.. that is really nice.
Pigs taste good with eggs.
LOL. True dat!
You should send this article to the parents of the 5-year-old that was torn apart by one in Mississippi today. I’m sure it’ll make them feel better that there were 3 good pitbulls documented in May of 2008.
Your priorities are skewed.
I’ve always thought that in the majority of cases it had to do with the people the dogs lived with, no matter the breed.
Then our gentle, sweet Pointer went psychotic and started attacking, biting, and mauling people and other dogs last summer. (He tried to catch our cats but they were much quicker than he). We had him euthanized. Cause? Unknown.
Did’nt know they grew Bastards in Texas. The answer is Yes,if you’re smart enough to figure it out.
It’s about time someone did this.
Thanks for the positive stories.
