Ontario Bully Ban video clip it's a bit long but well worth watching. http://www.kerwoodwolf.com/PitBan2.html "He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion." Unknown
What a powerful video. I cried also when they showed the dogs, and also made me sick to my stomach. I don't know how people can treat animals the way they do. It's jusy sickening. My heart goes out to all those pups. I am the proud owner of 2 English Bulldogs, and we had actually considered getting a pit bull as our next dog. I agree that pit bull problems are not a pit bull problem, but a HUMAN problem. And it's not just pits -- it goes for all "dangerous" dogs -- Rots as well. Thank you for sharing that video. While upset at what I saw, it's good that you shared to make others more aware.
oh ginah, by the replies of the other two i know i should not watch it. i am trying to go 1 full day on here without crying. i am on your side when it comes to pits and bsl. pleeeeeeease don't make me watch it :)
I've seen the pictures hundreds of times and it makes me cringe like it's the first time. Please stop help stop the attacks on our beloved dogs. If Breed specific Laws comes to your area, fight it!! The only thing BSL can accomplish is taking away the Pitbull from the loving owner and allowing the Pitbull abuser to continue to abuse a wonderful dog.
That is so rediculous. I'm glad I wached that. Tears filled my eyes when I was watching that. That is really a powerful video. My husband wont watch it though. I really wish he would. Pit Bulls are just not treated fairly. I feel very sad everytime I see a picture of a Pit Bull on the internet, because I know someone can take that dog and make it a great pet, or make is a vicous fighter. That was a good video, even though the pictures were hard to look at. If a ban was on my area, I would fight it.
I am a coward tonight.. I read the posts and decided against watching this time... don't want to get upset right at bedtime! GinaH, are you part of a group fighting the ban there? I saw some really good information about opposing BSL on a website. If you are interested, I will be happy to look it up again and post it here for you. It will be tomorrow, because I am just about ready to turn in for the night. One very successful thing I read about was proposing new vicious dog laws instead, that would pertain to any breed.
"GinaH, are you part of a group fighting the ban there?" __________________________________________ I am not personally involved but just that fact that I own Pit Bulls and I am an advocate of the breed is enough cause for me to rally against this ban. I am a member of DARUSA (Dogs At Risk USA) and the Tri-County APBT breed club I encourage anyone concerned with BSL to join and help fight! http://www.dogsatriskusa.org/help.htm http://www.staffordmall.com/mallbsl.htm
OMG...I had to click off after they started to flash those sad, sad pictures...what a huge tear jerker and for the life of me..I don't understand why things like this happen. I know there are bad people in this world...but why on Earth would they try to pass a law to do this? I will never understand this. Do these idiots only look at the dogs that are being trained to fight? What about the dogs that have loving homes and are gentle?? Surely the statistics are greater. Even in my community...I can name at least 10 people that I personally know with APBT....all are gentle dogs...even more gentle than my DoGone Rat Terrier! My youngest brother..he has a gorgeous APBT..all white with 2 beautiful blue eyes...also a 5 month old baby and my daughter goes over there ALL the time..she's 11. She will roll around on the floor with Kilo and scream at the top of her lungs. My daughter will go up to Kilo and growl at her..stare her down..rough house..pull on her tail..the baby is just now starting to learn how to pinch..and oh boy, does he pinch..and he pinches Kilo...all the time..he grabs her ears and my goodness, if this pitbull as well as every single other pit bull I know is agressive in anyway...it is with their tongue..oh yes, they do have powerful tongues and I guess Kilo would be very much guilty of licking people to death! Oh, it just makes me sick, sad and tired of it all...when will people finally learn..it is not the breed, it is the owner!
Dogoneit IM sorry I know the pictures are shocking I suppose I should have posted a warning. I guess for me they are not so shocking because I have seen it all first hand and unfortunately many of the rescues and fosters I deal with have been through similar ordeals. I to this day do not understand the punishment that has been placed on this breed as a whole. Why punish a dog for having irresponsible owners? BSL has gotten so ridiculous that now rescues are having great difficulty with transport because. Some States, Counties and Cities will actually seize a dog or puppy if the owner or guardian drives through the State, County or City with a dog in the car that looks like any dog on the list of prohibited breeds where BSL is enforced. It can take weeks, months, or even years to get the dog back in your possession. Alive if you're lucky. If the state seizes the dog, you can be held responsible for fines and boarding fees while the dog is kenneled against your wishes!
We have a huge trail behind our house where everyone takes their dogs for walks..the trail is also behind everyone's house...there are a ton of dogs in our community. Anytime I go walking, we always pass these 2 beautiful APBT's...they are very mischievious (tear up wrappers in the yard, dig holes, take the kids toys from the backyard and play with them when they know their not supposed to...but do you know..I walk by there every single day...they never, not once even bark! Sure they look up and come to the edge of the fence...but they just stand there..either playing with eachother or sticking their tongues out at us...but, there are 2 yappers next door...I don't know what they are..maybe they are pekignese (sp) (not trying to give them a bad name) but as soon as we walk by..they charge the fence, immediatley growl and bark and do this until they can't see us anymore. I remember someone posted a video clip from Animal Planet..and one of the Vets or Animal Control Officers said something about Pits being illegal in Miami...how ridiculous! GinaH, thank you for sharing it with us...though it was sad..it is reality that I wish were just a dream :o(
Gina -- you can see my bulldogs on dogster: Fusion: http://www.dogster.com/?75817 Vandal: http://www.dogster.com/?75820 I told my boyfriend about the video, and he refuses to watch it. I don't blame him. For as upset as I was while talking about it. Unbelieveable that people treat animals that way, and unbelievable that someone would BAN a breed of animal!
Oh my gosh your babies are gorgeous! I just found out last night that my husband has planned to get me an English Bulldog puppy as an early Christmas present. I have wanted one for a very long time. I had one in foster care not to long ago and was totally heart broken when he left. I am going this afternoon to pick out my puppy! I am so excited! Any tips?
OMG, my heart is breaking and I'm holding back tears right now after seeing those pictures. What in God's name is wrong with people???? I'd like to take anyone who would do that to a dog and hang them from the nearest tree after starving them to death on a huge chain. If I lived in Ontario I'd be raising hell right now.
