That dog derserves a steak dinner!!
“Pitbulls are ALL EVIL” /s
I appreciate your sarcasm. I have a pit cross that I got from a shelter abhout 6 1/2 years ago. She doesn’t know she is a dog, just a short person with a funny looking fur coat. She is absolutely the best dog I have ever owned and I would not hesitate to have another one. I have never seen her aggressive/protective side and don’t want to. She could be a formidable foe for someone if the situation dictated it. 60 pounds of muscle....red
baring his teeth and growling and barking,
“Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, do you?”
The dogs are alright
In case you or anyone else missed this.
Pits (and other bull breeds) can make excellent dogs, but you DO have to make sure they are raised right. You need a strict and steady hand, and make sure you socialize them around other people.
An unknown Pit scares the h*ll out of me, because more often than not, they are not optimally raised and trained, unfortunately. But ones that I know are wonderful dogs.
He probably just wanted to eat them later.
I confess that I made a friend of someone I really didn’t speak to in h.s. because I emailed him about his adorable pit bull. Now, mine? She’s loveable, great with the kids, and a pain in the ass. She likes jumping through windows. Cost a pretty penny in vet bills to sew up her arm, because she wanted to see the poodle walking down the street. Then, she ran a block on her bad foreleg.
There are very few “bad” dogs, but a hell of a lot of “bad” owners.
Unfortunately, there is more to the story.
Animal control has determined that the dog is blind and mistook the perp for the child.
no discription of the attacker???
Ohh, that would be the guy missing a chunck of his azz...
Great story. Thank you!
Forgive me, I need new glasses, I failed to see the /s at the bottom of your post and took it serious.
I apologize, my bad.
I checked your homepage. Gorgeous Rotts.
I’ve had two pit bull experiences.
Last year an emaciated pit bull walked into our yard. It was covered scars and had damaged its hip. We kept him for two months and nursed him back to health. He was a great dog with adults, but as soon as he got near another dog or a child he attacked. We had him put down.
Two months after that, the vets office contacted us to let us know that someone had abandoned a lab puppy at his office. The puppy had lost a leg after being hit by a car. We decided to foster him and got so attached that we kept him. As he grew up he looked more and more like a pit bull. Now he’s full grown and he’s the sweetest dog we’ve ever had. He’s good with kids and other dogs. He’s protective, but not aggressive.
The lesson is that a lot of how the pit bull acts is determined by the way they’re raised.
Do a google search for Sergeant Stubby, the most decorated dog of WW1. He was a Pitbull and is on display at the Smithsonian. Pitbulls are good dogs. It’s how you raise them.
Old Bull might have been a pit bull or a mix. We had a dog that was dying and he howled Old Bull in to take his place for when he died. Old Bull was a good dog, but had lived independent for years before. We once had company, and Bull peed on my leg and I guess marked me as one of his pack. It really got away with me as I didn’t understand it at the time. I popped his butt a few times in front of the company. He later took off after putting up with the stuff around here for a while; we had female dogs who expected him to “be sensitive” to their sensibilities. He got fed up and I don’t blame him. I later saw him a ways up the road; he wasn’t mad at me, just wasn’t going to put up with us women. He was dear.
Pitbulls have been given a bad rap by too many chicken littles.
