(Via Chicago Pit Stop Rescue)
You will pry my Rottweilers out of my cold dead arms.
Say “NO” to breed specific legislation.
A big part of the reason these breeds have been used by terrible people for terrible things is because they are all intelligent and easy to train. Which means they can also be easily trained for good things, too.
It’s people. We ruin everything. Some small-dicked asshole thinks having an unneutered pit bull that’s trained to fight makes him manly. Nope, dude, it just makes you a raging douchebag who gives the millions of wonderful, loving pitties a bad name and forces many of them to languish in shelters or be put down. Every pit I have known has been a sweet, loving, goofy and loyal family pet — this includes my cousin’s, who would lay next to his daughter when she was a baby and protect her. I wish I still had a picture of that. I used to but I don’t know where it went.
Some day when I have the money for a decent-sized apartment I intend to adopt at least one pit bull from a shelter. Probably two if I have room. And anyone who wants to tell me they are inherently evil can suck it.
And most GSDs and Dobies I’ve encountered are smarter than a lot of people I know.
I have lots of feelings about this.
No freaking animal is born with bad behaviors. It’s the people who own them that reinforce bad/destructive behaviors.
My grandparents had a Doberman when I was growing up, and she was the sweetest dog ever. That picture book series about the Rottweiler Carl and the baby girl was part of my childhood, my aunt has a sweet German Shepherd, and my ex-wife had/loved Pits. Whenever I see one around, which I do pretty often, I have this instinctive need to pet them and give them some love. The one above is especially sweet. I want a puppy.
