Three word Wednesday
I know it is Monday and soon the new words will be up. These words, just seem to fit something I want to write about.
I expected a growl on our first meeting. Instead I was met with a slobbery wet kiss on the cheek and huge paws resting on my shoulders. Wait! Am I suppose to be afraid? I heard all the hype, I read all the gory details and the vicious dog laws.
I have owned many dogs, but, there is something different about owning Pit Bulls. They are a dominant breed. Proud, fiercely loyal, and rambunctious. Stubborn as HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, stubborn as hell. They are not a breed for everyone. They require lots of attention and constant commands. BUT, they learn who is boss. They learn that yes, they too, can be loved. Despite of the bad reputation these dogs get, my daughter and I have become absolutely in love with them.
I am tired of having to justify my love of the breed. Defend their natures and remind people, there are no bad dogs, just bad owners.
This breed does have a jaw with pressure. And, when they do bite, they don't let go. However, NOT all Pit Bulls, are BAD, BAD, DOGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I own six dogs. Two of them are pit bulls. A male and a female. They are adorable. Funny, loving and just plain loads of fun to play with. They are rescue dogs. I probably will never own another breed, they have convinced me that they are wonderful pets.
Thousand of pit bulls are put to sleep each day. There are laws that need to change and if your State or County needs to change their vicious dog law, please sign a petition.
Please note, the loving dog on the right was put to sleep because we could not find a home for her.
Don't let others tell you horror stories. Any, and I mean ANY dog can be vicious. Please support your local rescues.
