Did you buy a puppy from Wildside kennels? If so you may be interested to see where your money went!

Wildside Pit Bull Kennels was raided for dog fighting! I have said it before and I will say it again.., Do your homework people! Just because a breeder looks good on the net doesn’t mean they are!

This pisses me off! How long did these people go unchecked? So much for tightening the strings on breeders!

Not all breeders are bad, there are many well-respected and responsible breeders out there, unfortunately, people like Wildside, place a stain on all breeders!

For the record I do support adoption first, over a breeder, there are many wonderful “purebred” dogs waiting for homes too! But I also support responsible breeders right to maintain a bloodline, health and overall temperament of their dog of choice. They’re not all bad eggs! Just DO YOUR HOMEWORK , before you hand over your cash, don’t help a dog fighter keep up his standard of abuse!

Pay attention to how his tail never st…ops wagging. 🙂 This guy just stole my heart. Sigh. He is only 2 years old and has been at the shelter since Jan. 14th… he is not in immediate danger but when the shelter is full, I do worry about these shy guys especially with “health” (emaciated) issues. Please help me find him a forever home where he will only know and experience what it’s like to be loved and cared for…

He is only 2 years old and has been at the shelter since Jan. 14th… he is not in immediate danger but when the shelter i…s full, I do worry about these shy guys especially with “health” (emaciated) issues. Please help me find him a forever home where he will only know and experience what it’s like to be loved and cared for… I can’t stop think about him. He has been placed in the orange dot program for shy dogs… I have no doubt he will blossom quickly in a home environment with a patient loving family. He is emaciated and must’ve been neglected in his previous home, but still yearning to love and be loved as you can see from the video above. Please note, I am NOT the contact.

Still think pit bulls are nasty? Then why is “She” so scared of “US” we should be scared of us!

We say they are mean…, I don’t know but I think we invented mean!  Flip through a history book sometime, dogs don’t even come close to our vicious nature, I’ll bet a pit bull has more compassion and ability to love unconditionally.

If  we are so much better, than why is she so scared of us, hmmmmm? you tell me that!

Bobby can tell you a little something about how “Nasty” we are!

To deny where animal abuse comes from, to turn your back on the victims, in favor of the abusive human, wake up!

Demand change and dog bites will decrease, ignore irresponsibility and we will be here all day, day after day, year after year!

Step up!

Craigs List, A new way to speak your mind, and just look what I found!

Craigs List Chat

This was composed by Amanda Hoffman, and personally I think she did a brilliant job putting this together! Is it just me or am I starting to see the fog from BSL and these stupid Bylaws starting to lift?

There is a movement here folks, and its called change!

The more people who physically get involved, those who write letters to their government, and those who get involved with rescues and start getting the repeals going the better!

People say, pit bulls are dangerous! I say that statement is what’s dangerous! I have personally seen some pretty nasty dogs from all different breeds, and there was always a common theme to their story, Neglectful owners, abusive owners, unscrupulous breeders, who create litter after litter after litter, to them its all about the money not the quality of dog they produce. better laws to govern these folks are needed!

I could go on all day, (Don’t worry I won’t!)   We all know where the problem really lies and it’s time to change that too while we are at it! And I don’t want to hear  about how expensive it will be to enforce either, Our politicians waste a hell of a lot of our money! Staying in posh hotels Vs the cheaper option, they eat at 4 star restaurants instead of  a “nice” restaurant and they wear clothes that you and I could only dream of wearing, so I really don’t care how much it costs figure it out and get it done!

Remember the lives hanging in the balance, and they didn’t ask to be here, to be hurt, to be forsaken, because that’s easier than the fight.

So “Way to go Amanda!” thank you for taking the time and speaking the truth! and finding a way to use craigslist for something wonderful, the truth!

A little something to make you say hmmmmmm?

  A little something for all you BSL supporters to think about! Would like to be innocent of any crime and still be treated like a criminal?

 Would you like to be profiled like this?  To have someone tell you that because you look a certain way or because some people in your ethnic group have behaved poorly you too will pay the consequences, and you will no longer have rights?

 Do you feel that you have the right to dictate who gets to own a certain type of dog, just because there are some who have made them behave in such a way that reflects poorly on all?

 The answer to these questions is a very simple, NO!  Stop punishing one breed, and start demanding the real animal be held accountable and to a higher standard!

 Don’t make me afraid of you, make me proud to serve and protect you!  All I want is a fair chance, a chance to be happy and to show you that with the right family and leadership I can shine!

 Remember what it felt like when you had someone look down their nose at you? Then why would you turn around and do it to me?

 Dont’ let fear and lies lead your heart, get educated on the problem of dog fighting and poor ownership, make the irresponsible ones pay not me!

 Thank you for listening, and learning about me with an open mind! Before the wrong people were allowed to own me I was the symbol of the ultimate family dog, I was “America’s Dog!”  I would love to become “Canada’s Dog too!” If given a chance, I can make you proud of me not afraid!
