Help save Schroeder

I am the first to say “Don’t blame the victim” and mean it..,  but call me crazy here, if I was a mail carrier, and the door to a home I knew or suspected to have dogs residing within it was open, there is no way I would have ever stepped on to that porch or door step! Remember folks mail carriers have an easy out when it comes to dogs, if they feel that entering a property with dogs places them in eminent or immediate danger, they are not, repeat NOT obligated to go there!

In Canada a supervisor delivers a note card that states free roaming or mail slot aggressive dogs will result in the stoppage or pause of mail delivery. So I have to question whether all the facts are as the carrier see it, but in the long run that is not my call.

I feel for a dog that is placed in this or any situation where their reputation and or safety are put at risk, so with that said I also feel the owners had a great responsibility to their charge and they failed him! I know roughly when my carrier is coming, but it does change from time to time with seniority and shift changes, and with that said Monday to Friday  my door is kept closed until mail is delivered for that day, period and end of story! Weekends we occasionally get deliveries via courier, however both my dogs bark well in advance of anyone getting to the porch and when they bark I call them back and take them outside into our secured back yard, so that there is never a chance that  a carrier or delivery person will ever be injured and my dogs will never be seized.

So I will call them( the owners)  out on the carpet over this one, but their inactions or failures should not mean a strike out for this dog. He deserves the chance to stay in the living.

It should mean changes to how he is handled, or possibly a more responsible owner/s may be a better option than death. To me a nip or property line offense is a much different category than let’s say a mauling or vicious and aggressive attack. although all dog agression should never be treated lightly and should always be addressed immediately by a trained professional.

I truly feel for dogs in these circumstances because the majority of dogs view their home and people as something to be protected at all cost.

Honestly I just wish in general, dog owners would wake up, and be proactive enough to consider that even the friendliest of dogs can view delivery people in a different light than we do. I wish that before people get a dog, they take the time to properly educate themselves on how to successfully transition, raise, socialize and train dogs before they bring them home.

We must stop expecting dogs to live in our world, by our rules alone. Yes they must become accustom to our lives and interactions with others, as well as the way we do things and mostly what we expect from them, but we too must learn their language, understand their minds and body language, their very natures, if we are ever to successfully have a cohesive bond with them, and thusly a successful well-adjusted and happy companion at our sides.

Please consider giving Schroeder your support and sign and share his petition today!!!!!! Just because his family cannot afford the court fees does not mean this dog should die.

interesting fact: a golden retriever did the same thing last year, in Canada and… well he never left his yard! His owners were given a fine and restrictions on their dog, but he was not seized, so I guess the bias and breed discrimination continues, how sad!

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!
