Why are there so many pit bulls in shelters?

I can not say for sure, but my best guess is that these dogs reputations suffer and are exaggerated by the over zealous media. They are treated and cared for most often in very poor conditions, to say some are down right horrid would be closer to the truth, most are chained and forgotten.

We can’t forget about those people who but a pit bull puppy when they have no idea about what their needs are, and that they required a strong teacher, They soon start to realise that these cute little puppies grow into strong, muscular dogs that need regular exercise and training. So their family member takes them to a shelter and simply walks away, never knowing if that dog lived or died, they divorce themselves from it entirely, I guess you would have to.

The result is most often pit bulls out number all other dog breeds in shelters, and that is very sad, It is heartbreaking that these Pit Bulls will wait for, but most will never see their Fur-Always homes. It breaks my heart to think that we can cast dogs aside like that.

Fortunately, there are many people out there willing to take a rescue or shelter dog in, and love them, all those people are very special without a doubt but we need more devoted families to step up and realize these are wonderful dogs, That they are dogs with potential for greatness!

I am looking now for my new addition, as I have said I will keep everyone updated when we find our match! Stay tuned!

If you have a space to fill check out your local shelter or rescue first, you never know what you might find, maybe the next Dolly The Pit Bull, or Daddy!


About apitome

I am a mother, a pit bull advocate, but mostly I am just like any of you, I am passionate about politics, the environment and dog advocacy. I want possitive changes within the judicial system as well. I want my children to grow up in a country where we are not told what breed of dog we can own. I want to see BSL put in the trash where it belongs! I want to see the constitution protected but not manipulated *see anything on the mosque near ground zero (USA) or changing Merry Christmas to Happy Holidays (Canada)* I am not racist in any way shape or form against any ethnic group, I do however have prejudices against bad behavior! If you abuse our laws, kids, the elderly, or animals, If you move to a new country and then demand that country to change everything about it's laws & way of life to suit your own agenda, If you blatantly break those laws with no regard and show no repect for them, if you engage in dog fighting or any other forms of animal abuse, torture or neglect, or if you are a pedophile, Than yes! You are on my radar for sure, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to see you stopped and brought to justice! Furthering that goal, I have no qualms about publishing the names and faces of convicted abusers. I am not trying to change the world, I simply want to see things improve not backslide, Mostly for my children and these wonderful dogs futures! I may say things you agree with, and I may say things that you won't agree with, I may anger you, challenge you, or just plain piss you off, but in my book that's ok as long as long as it inspires some form of action on your part. This is not a popularity contest, If I have said anything about a group or person that you don't agree with please feel free to leave a comment or simply don't come back. If You have been mentioned in my blog it is for one of two reasons, you are either an advocate or you are an abuser loser, if you are the latter I could care less what you think! I value the opinions of trash about as much as I do that of a slug! Everything in print here is a matter of public record, or came from a trusted source, with that said, I am certainly willing to print both sides of any story, in an effort to be fair and always print the truth!
