National President RNZSPCA (in New Zealand), is regularly quoted in the mainstream media and shown in person on TV in prime time telling our public that “All Pit Bulls are born bad” and advising people not to take them into their homes. This is shameful that he is promoting such fallacy! Pit bulls are used as therapy dogs visiting hospital patients, pit bulls are used in reading programs where school children read to them, pit bulls are fire fighter and police officiers mascots. Why? Because of their gentle, patient, and loyal natures.
We've just adopted a sweet girl from Cleveland's death row. She is part pit and the most darling pup you'd ever meet. She is great with everyone - even cats. We were a little concerned at first because of all the media hype (we've never known any pits before) but one look at her face (Urgent Ohio Dogs) and we fell in love; we knew she was our dog.
Cherie congratulations on your new dog! You know you followed your heart instead of the media hype and by doing so you not only saved a life, you ganined an exceptional dog! Tell your story with some photos of your new precious girl on facebook. Your story is a powerful one that the general public can relate to and your story could save other precious girls like your own pit mix!!!
We need to stop harassing the dogs and start harassing bad dog owners, the real problem!
Nature makes the puppy man makes the dog,so b a man and don't act like wild dogs,
This is something we're fighting in the US too. Don't pass this one by because it isn't in your neighborhood, please. Tomorrow it could be.
We have a cocker spaniel, shephered and a pitt...There is no difference in behavior....If you look at antique pictures of families...you will see their dog is a pitt...They protect their family....
I have shared this on my facebook page. hopefully if more people see this then something positive may come out of it x.
this made me feel physically sick when I read it. there are no bad dogs - only bad owners and its the poor dogs that suffer!
Signed. :). Go Judy!
No breed besides wolves have been targeted by uninformed ignorant humans..........Let's all help NZ get all the petition names needed.
