Dog Rescue Agencies Continue To Refuse To Stop Pit Bull Dog Adoptions

All smiles! Depressed shelter dog Smokey who refused to let go of his stuffed toy can’t stop GRINNING after being rescued just days before he was due to be euthanized…This is a story about a PIT BULL dog!   The above picture shows that this is a pit bull dog.  It has a huge mouth and big chest and the hard staring eyes of a pit bull dog.  Note it is guarding its toy.

 

 Smokey, a five-year-old pooch, was surrendered to the Franklin County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center in Ohio back in February, and since then has only been able to find comfort in his stuffed toy elephant, which he takes with him wherever he goes.

 

The pup’s family were forced to give him up after they had lost their home and were no longer able to care for him.

 

The poor pooch was seen as shy, stressed and anxious by staff during his time at the shelter, and had been growling at the public, leading to him be removed from availability for adoption.

 

Luckily, on Sunday, a pair of volunteers from the nonprofit I Have A Dream Rescue Organization came by the shelter and fell in love with the pup and his best friend.

 

And since being rescued, images of the adorable pup posted on social media show Smokey flashing a wide grin at the camera – while still standing guard over his favorite stuffed toy.

 

Yes, there are actually organizations that want to ‘save’ pit bull dogs and have them adopted!  This is pure insanity.  These dogs are highly dangerous.  They can look totally friendly, walk up to someone and then, with no warning, nothing, they lunge and try to kill.

 

They were bred to do this.  It isn’t accidental or provoked.  They were bred to fight bulls.  Thus, the name.  The bulls were put in an enclosed space called a ‘pit’.

Pit bull dogs attack and kill a child and maul another child in Atlanta in January.  The children were walking in a large group, to school.  The three dogs came running up and grabbed the smallest child and began ripping him apart, killing him, a little girl screamed so they turned on her.

 

The families are now suing the dog owners, the property owners who let the man keep the dogs there and the city.  I hope they win, this is the only way to force cities to move to outlaw this breed of dog.  They attack with no warning, they don’t bark at anyone, they just run up and seize and not let go.

 

From a pit bull site that loves to pretend the breed isn’t dangerous:

These dogs have strange eyes.  This locked-in stare isn’t friendly, it is ‘I am deciding whether to attack or not attack’ stare.  It is the sort of stare my pet alligator used when looking at something I was feeding him.

City Decides To Remove Newly Adopted Dog Despite Family’s Efforts To Keep Him: note the huge mouth of the pit bull dog.  In this story, the owners desperately tried to pretend it wasn’t a pit bull but some other sort of pit bull dog.  It has all the characteristics of a pit bull dog, of course.

 

 A hearing has been set for August 11, in Waterford’s District Court, according to The Oakland Press.

 

“Don’t worry, Diggy is safe at home with me and his momma,” Diggy’s dad Dan Tillery posted to Facebook. “My lawyer and I are going to do everything possible to make sure Diggy stays in his home with us, his family. Thanks for all of your support, guys. I’m not a quitter.”

 

Talking baby talk to a potential killer dog is lunacy.  This is exactly the sort of pit bull that will maul small children or kill a neighbor’s small pet dog. This breed is notorious for killing smaller dogs.

 

In the meantime, as of Sunday afternoon, this online petition, asking for Watership Township to repeal its breed ban, has more than 42,000 signatures. It’s small comfort for Diggy and his family — but if nothing else, at least the township is now learning now much opposition there is to the law that threatens to separate them.

 

I say, a great solution here is, all the names on the petition should be registered and when a pit bull mix or full pit bull kills someone’s pet or family, they can sue everyone on this petition for enabling a killer.  That will reduce the number of people wanting to put their names on such a list.

 

Soon after news spread about Diggy’s wonderful adoption, the police came to Dan Tillery’s door, demanding to examine his dog.

 

Waterford Township, the Detroit-area town where Dan and Diggy live, has a ban on Pit Bulls—or, more specifically, dogs who “substantially conform to the breed standards established by the American Kennel Club” for American Staffordshire Terriers, Staffordshire Bull Terriers, or American Pit Bull Terriers.

 

I see the people who want to protect the community from these very dangerous dogs covered their legal ban carefully.  This is why pit dog fanatics love to pretend they are not pit dogs, they make up stuff to hide the true nature of the breed.  Note how this pro-pit bull story talks about the dog in baby language, pretending it is cute and not a potential killer.

 

A pit bull attacked a man in NYC recently, the pit bull didn’t kill the man due to another citizen shooting it dead.  Another story is about a woman who saved her child from a pit bull, it was shot dead by a cop while the dog cornered the woman and child in a bathroom.

Mainly the deaths make the news, in this case, it happened in Manhattan and a man used his hand gun to kill the monster, so it made the news due to that.  Pit bulls killing other smaller, weaker dogs happens all the time and doesn’t make the news.

    Elaine,

    Your attempt to identify the threat presented by this breed is admirable. But judging by the previous thread on this issue (see link below) you are a bear for punishment!

    AAA+++. Thanks for tackling this subject.

    The orginal American pit dogs were a lot different than the current version. To win in the pit, a dog needed speed, strength, perseverance, cunning, and a balanced temperament. They would outmaneuver and outlast the vicious challengers. These older pit dogs were generally not a threat to other people or animals (with exceptions).

    The current version of the pit bull has been produced by many generations of pits being bred by morons for vicious temperament, large heads, dangerousness etc.

    @Sunger

    The breed always had the same characteristics since SHAKESPEARE’s TIME. They were never work dogs for the local farms, guard dogs (too unpredictable) nor family pets. They were only bred for blood sport.

    What HAS changed in recent years is pushing them as family dogs. A practice that is grossly negligent on the part of animal service agencies. Not only are they pushing pure breed pits, they are also pushing their mutt mixes then labeling them as the mix. So if you get a Bull mixed with Collie. Guess what the shelters are going to label it as? Luckily for the observant it is not hard to miss the tell tale signs of the pit bull (large skull, barrel chest, big jaw). Those characteristics will always show.

    I had a wonderful dog that was part pit bull. But it was easy to see how she didn’t inherit much of that, for her head was narrow, she had long fur and didn’t have the barrel chest. Was a most gentle and wonderful dog. But I wouldn’t have her get pregnant, for obvious reasons.

    @Elaine

    You are one of the few responsible dog owners. However I fear the Pit Bull genes have contaminated a mass amount of otherwise gentle breeds and are now taking root with successive generations. That means no dog will be safe to own. All of them will be prone to inexplicable aggression.

    Well, I suppose we will all have to make do with cat companions.

    20 people are killed a year by PBs, in USA?
    Hundreds maimed.
    Thousands bitten.

    However PBs are not the only ‘dangerous breed.’
    In California, in the 1980s Rottweilers were popular. No more.
    Rottweilers are no dogs for dog fighting, so the mexicans and blacks dont own many of them.
    Whites owned rotts and were usually smart enough to not keep them, once the dogs got old and died.
    I learned these facts in an article, a rott or 3 killed a baby when the baby started crying.
    The facts I share were from a ‘rott rescue’ guy who was interviewed.

    However, a Pomeranian killed a baby. The dog was alone with the baby.
    Poms are noisy, dumb dogs.

  7. Lou

    Also, Rescue dogs are the most dangerous, potentially.

    Why was the Pit bull dumped at a shelter?Was it unwanted because of aggression? Hard to train?

    And a Pit Bull from a rescue may have been mistreated, so it is now doubly dangerous. It sees people as the enemy.

  8. Jim R

    Lou, you keep trotting out that “Pom killed a baby” line, and perhaps it really happened once. Chihuahuas are also little ankle-biters. But for them to kill someone, they have to work on ’em for a while. Maybe not so long on a baby but still…

    The only thing I can say is, the people who left a baby with an unsupervised Pom are stupider than the Pom. Darwin at work.

  9. Jim R

    Elaine, you’re a little bit off on the way the breed got its name.

    Bull terriers or bulldogs, are a breed that goes back maybe 150 or 200 years … their job was to force frightened/angry cattle to go into the slaughterhouse. They are not like gentle herding dogs that look after the animals, they are supposed to be mean. Bulldogs can force a bull to go where it doesn’t want to go.

    And then of course the ‘pit’ refers to the fighting pit where they are forced to fight other dogs, as you said.

    The opposite of your sweet Snoopy dogs that dance with the birds and bunnies and love everybody.

    @Jim R

    Bull dogs and Pit Bulls have the same background but then they diverge considerably.

    For 400 years after the pit bull rings of Elizabethan England, breeders have steadfastly bred genial characteristics into bull dogs by mixing them with small, friendly breeds. Also note that bull dogs have become show dogs and are way past the budget of local thugs who would value their ferocity.

    The Pit Bull has not been the focus of breed taming, they are not show dogs. They are the animals of choice in ALL low income areas.

    I suspect the Pit Bull was unamendable to breeding refinement (unlike the bull dog) and was therefore ignored by show breeders. But instead of the breed dying out, it has survived and continued to be used for what it was bred for…fighting. It is only in the past 20 years that have seen a push for these unfriendly and dangerous animals in family homes.

  11. Jim R

    Haha, “small, friendly breeds” .. it is my experience that the small breeds are typically little tyrants. A pack of Chihuahuas is about as friendly as a school of Piranhas.

    The sort of medium-sized breeds that do gentle jobs like herding sheep or retrieving things are the friendliest sweetest breeds, IMNSHO.

    Oh, and there ARE some Pit related breeds in the professional dog shows. For example, the Cane Corso. Guard dog breeds generally have a mean streak, and a territorial nature. I have seen them in the shows, usually wearing prong collars and kept on short leashes by their handlers.

  12. Melponeme_k

    @Jim R

    Bull dogs were not intermixed with chihauhuas but pugs. Apparently the Pug’s tendency towards goofiness was strong enough to overcome the fighting gene in bull dogs. However the smashed in face that both breeds show is dangerous to their health.

    All dogs can be questionable. I had a Collie that was friendly but on the timid side. When he got older, he started to bite my younger sibling. Unfortunately he then had to be put to sleep. However this is not common behavior of most family breeds. Whereas the Pit Bull it is common, it is expected and they show dominance behavior toward the elderly, woman and children ALL THE TIME. My god, how many stories about them ripping apart babies do we need to read about before people finally get it through their heads that these dogs are throw backs. They are genetic dead ends and must be allowed to go extinct.

  13. Jim R

    Ah, @Melponeme, you are correct. Bulldogs go back more like 4 or 500 years and not 200..

    The term “Bulldog” was first mentioned in literature around 1500, the oldest spelling of the word being Bondogge and Bolddogge. The first reference to the word with the modern spelling is dated 1631 or 1632 in a letter by a man named Preswick Eaton where he writes: “procuer mee two good Bulldogs, and let them be sent by ye first shipp”.[11] In 1666, English scientist Christopher Merret applied: “Canis pugnax, a Butchers Bull or Bear Dog”, as an entry in his Pinax Rerum Naturalium Britannicarum.[12]

    The designation “bull” was applied because of the dog’s use in the sport of bull baiting. This entailed the setting of dogs (after placing wagers on each dog) onto a tethered bull. The dog that grabbed the bull by the nose and pinned it to the ground would be the victor. It was common for a bull to maim or kill several dogs at such an event, either by goring, tossing, or trampling. Over the centur…

    (Wikipedia)

    But the same article says recent DNA studies have shown that the Pug is not actually related to the Bulldog. It’s just that the breeders have selected them for those pushed-in faces until they can barely breathe and their eyes pop out, like the modern bulldog.

    By the way, old engravings of Bulldogs show them with longer muzzles, the modern English Bulldog is barely recognizable compared to the old pictures.

    The poet Grattius, a contemporary of Ovid, writes “…when serious work has come, when bravery must be shown, and the impetuous War-god calls in the utmost hazard, then you could not but admire the renowned Molossians so much.”

    Jim R, your self righteousness is as strong as your stupidity on this.
    The people who left the baby alone were NOT the parents [so much for yr Darwin nonsense] and you dont have to read my posts.

    ‘By the way, old engravings of Bulldogs show them with longer muzzles, the modern English Bulldog is barely recognizable compared to the old pictures.’–Check the NY Times Sunday section, some years back. Theres a [cover?] story about how show breeders have ruined Old English Bull dogs.
    Over the last 40 years. I am not sure the were cross bred, I guess they were in bred.

  16. Jim R

    Show breeders have ruined a lot of breeds.

    A dogophile friend of ours once said, about the German Shepherd:
    “They’ve bred their asses off! How do they shit?”

  17. Petruchio

    “The current version of the pit bull has been produced by many generations of pits being bred by morons for vicious temperament, large heads, dangerousness etc.” Black males see owning a Pit Bull as a sign of machismo. They have a pistol in their waistbands and they listen to violence promoting music. Is it any wonder that homicide is the leading cause of death for black males aged 18-34? NO!! Violence is an ingrained part of Black Culture. Pit Bulls are a critical part of a culture that glorifies violence.

  18. emsnews

    HAHAHA. Good catch.

    From a period that spanned 1993 to 1996 the Rottweiler and Pitbull made up 60% of human fatalities in dog related incidents despite making up only a small portion of the dog ownership in the US at the time.

    See–Fatal Dog Attack.com

  20. Lou

    A dog owner mauled to death by his Staffordshire bull terrier was allegedly being interviewed by the BBC when the horrific attack took place.

    Police say that a 41-year-old man died in Wood Green, North London, after being bitten on the neck by his pet dog.

    But it has now been claimed that BBC staff were present during the filming of a documentary when the dog fatally attacked its owner.

    In a statement to Sky, the BBC said: ‘We are aware of an incident but we cannot comment any further as it’s an ongoing investigation.’

    Yahoo usually has Pit friendly propaganda.

    Today, however;

    Pit bull breaks away from chain, mauls man to death in Ohio
    DAN SEWELL,Associated Press 19 hours ago
    CINCINNATI (AP) — A pit bull apparently broke away from a chain and mauled a man to death early Tuesday as he screamed for help, Dayton police said.

    Police in the southwest Ohio city responded to a report of a man yelling, “Jesus, help me, help me!” at around 4:40 a.m. The 911 caller said the man was yelling at “the top of his lungs” amid the sounds of dogs barking loudly. He said the man was also crying.

    Lt. Mark Ponichtera said police found the man being attacked in an alley. They were able to get the dog to back off, and the man was taken to a hospital, where he died.

    Police fatally shot the dog, which they say was a pit bull.

    “There was no way to safely confine the dog,” [Wtf????]
