Just a thought!

 I am all for responsible ownership, and stipulations ie;

 License required,training required, socialization required, veterinary care required, but not breed specific, required for ALL breeds, even a poodle can bite! pet ownership comes with responsibility, with that said, stop wasting valuable resources on nonsense Bills and Bans and put it into a “responsibility act”


When Pit Bulls are Heros

There was a hero Pit Bull named Sebastian that I recently read about that saved a 6-year-old from an attack by a Rottweiler, he did not hesitate to step up and put himself between the rottweiler and the child. As a result of his bravery the boy survived the attack. Funny how that story did not make National headlines, but negative Pit bulls stories always do.

More inspirational pits; 

There are many, many more wonderful stories about American Pit Bull Terriers, Staffordshire Terriers, Bully Breeds, and Pit mixes, unfortunately, we don’t often hear these stories because the “Media Bias” that surrounds these dogs is intense and unwarranted, as a society we need to demand fairness to all breeds and put the stipulations where they belong, on their human counter parts!

We need to help these dogs by first, making sure when you buy or adopt these dogs you are fully prepared to give them a lifetime commitment. That means if you rent, don’t buy, don’t adopt, there are way too many dogs that end up in shelters and eventually are euthanized because they are surrendered due to unforseen events, like you have to move and your new apartment won’t allow pets! A pet is like a child, I have said this many times before, if you had a child would you surrender them because you don’t have time, money or further interest? We all know the answer is No! You would not and a pet deserves the same love and devotion. If they are willing to put themselves in the line of fire to save you, than you should give them that same respect.

Educating the youth of today is a major step in the right direction, show them what heroes Pit bulls are, and can be, if given the right training socialization and love. Show them that dog fighting is wrong and against the law, teach them that abuse, neglect, and abandonment are not an option, and we Will end BSL!

Hero’s come in all shapes and sizes but none come more willing to step up to the plate to defend, than a Pit Bull, they have proven even a complete stranger is worthy of their help and protection.

For that reason they will always be heroes to me!

Please help Hammy! (Hambone)

NEPA: Hambone is a complete ham! Let’s help this handsome guy find his forever home! PLS REPOST!!

by Pinups for Pitbulls, Inc. on Saturday, October 30, 2010 at 6:18pm

Hi…my name is Hambone. My foster dad gave me that name because ….I am a ham!! I am a rescued dog. I had a home once. I don’t know what happened. One day my person took me for a ride in the car and let me out on a sidewalk. When I wasn’t looking….he drove away. I am sure that he forgot me….I ran down the street and tried to tell him that I wasn’t in the car..but he just kept going. Some nice people saw me and didn’t want me to get hit by a car…so they gave me a place to hang out until someone could help me out of the jam I was in. Finally, I found a foster home and now they tell me that I have a rescue. I am going to the doctor’s to get my shots and to get neutered. I am not sure what that means but I guess it is something that has to get done. Anyway, I am a young dog, about a year and a half or so, and I have a lot of puppy energy. I would do well in a home with young, energetic people who could take me for long walks and play with me a lot. I do like to play fetch and I truly do enjoy a good belly rub!! I love people and do fine with older children. I am pretty good around other dogs with a proper introduction. I have to learn some manners but my foster dad promised to work on that! I should be ready for my “forever” home very soon. So, if you think that I sound like the right dog for you, please email Ken at kennychuck1@hotmail.com and ask for an adoption application for me….Hambone!! Thanks! 

Hambone is a great dog! He gets along just fine with the other two dogs in the foster home and he loves to swim in the pond!! He must think that he is a lab!! He should probably go to a home where there is, at least, one other dog since he does seem to enjoy their company so much. Hambone has been updated on his shots and has been neutered. He is crate trained and housebroken. He is ready to go home with you today!! Please put your application in on this handsome young man! Hambone is located in Northeast Pa.

Save Stu

Listen to AUDIO of Stu’s Dad addressing the Animal Services Board of Commissioners on Stu’s Law- October 26, 2010

Length: 3:06

Reality Bites! or maybe it Kisses!

And you say we should be afraid of them?  Maybe you should see why they have more reason to be afraid of us!!!!!!! maybe they should ban us! this is why I like animals more than people, because they don’t do things just for the pleasure of seeing pain!

These are NOT the images of pit bulls and their loving families, these are images of dogs that have been repeatedly and systematically abused and neglected, let down by a system that chooses to place it focus on non-effective BSL legislation that exists only to bring punishment and death to the wrong parties, and in the end accomplishes nothing! When I look at the picture of all the euthanized pit bulls I think of every loving family that had their dog ripped from them and destroyed, and every dog that suffered unspeakable abuse, and nobody cared enough to help, every dog fighter has a neighbour or friend that knows whats going on!
 
I am to the point where the more research I do the more lies and absolute untruths I see. Very few positive Pit stories hit the news, cause nice doesn’t sell papers!  A man recently said to me the thought of a world with pits in it would be hell and they should all be shot!, well to you sir I say this; I don’t believe in hell, but if I did I would think of it as a horrible dark place filled with people like you, who were cruel to animals and devoid of all compassion or the ability to see beauty in all creatures great and small. I feel sorry for you, maybe you were the kid whose parents never let you know the unconditional love only a dog can give his family.
when I think of Pit Bulls these are the images I see:
 
that’s all the reality I need to see!  Pit Bulls the way they are meant to be, happy and loved. America’s Hero called and he wants his title back, his honor back and everything else we stole from them by allowing monsters to stand at the other end of their leash and did nothing about it, until it was too late!
 
But it’s not too late to change things, to end BSL and give those dogs back the right to life, to once more become “The Nanny Dog” or “The Hero” or “The Therapy Dog” we all know they are and have always been meant to be.

You think you know dog fighting?

Thanks to Diane Jessup for all you do to end this horrific sport and bring awareness, education is key!

Diane’s site

Until Law Makers focus on the real problem, nothing will change for these dogs, for innocent people who cross paths with a badly neglected and abused dog, pit bull or otherwise!

Please take some interest, enough to contact your local Senator and say no to BSL and yes to stronger punishments for fighters and abusers!

Meet Bart

 

Ador-a-BULL OF TE WEEK: Meet BART (ID# 879858)!! I have been told by SO MANY wonderful shelter volunteers that THIS BOY IS AMAZING! While BNB has not met BART, we are told that this 2-year-old baby has GREAT MANNERS ON THE LEASH and is VERY SWEET NATURED, A “PEOPLE DOG”, AFFECTIONATE, CALM and received a wonderful score of “MILD” o…n his behavior test. With a face that looks very much like a Boxer (but all-black! so unique!), BART is a 51 pound show-stopper with both his handsome looks and his loving, affectionate personality 🙂 This poor baby is already coughing, which would indicate that he has an upper respiratory infection and is very, very close to being added to the euthanasia list. To quote a shelter volunteer who has spent time with BART, “Bart deserves a second chance at life. He’s too nice of a dog to get wasted. I’ll be praying for him…” BNB Family – LET’S GET BARTY-BOY OUT OF THE SHELTER AND INTO A LOVING HOME ASAP! He is located at the Manhattan Animal Care and Control (326 110th Street) in NYC. Please let us know ASAP or call the shelter directly (212-788-4000) if you are interested in adopting PRECIOUS BART! Please cross-post! THANK YOU! Bio below:
A volunteer wrote: Bart is a people dog. For him, it is all about us. He looks up constantly as we are walking making sure I’m tuned in to him. He actually stops walking, steps in front of me and asks to be petted. He is so affectionate; his time with his human companion is more important then anything else to him. He is great on the leash – no pulling at all. And, since he weighs 51 pounds it was wonderful to be able to walk him so effortlessly. Bart appears housetrained, sits on command and is just gorgeous. Someone took very good care of him before he was found as a stray. Bart has a boxer face, so somewhere in his lineage is a boxer; this may also have given him his height. Our behaviorist rated him a rock star MILD, and his calm, sweet, gentle and quiet personality confirms all his test scores. Don’t let this fabulous dog sit in a kennel for too long, it will be your loss. Come meet Bart today!See More
