OMG. this poor dog. I was already logged off when I saw this, I had had to log back on. This is just horrendous . How can comeone do this this to a poor, innnocent and helpless animal? Just when I think I've seen and heard it all, I see something even more hearbreaking than before. This brings tears to my eyes. I can only hope that she gets a good and loving home soon, and the owners are put in a cell with rain water to drink and food that is out of thir reach. My lord, there is no punishement to fit this crime.
Oh that poor baby...:-(....it makes me sick to see what some people do. It is just heartbreaking to see and know that there are so many more animals in this world being treated in this same way. I dont know what there purpose for owning animals are. If you ask me they themselves are the animals. There is just no need for it! I agree...tie them up in squalor..while they waste away from starvation.
Animal Planet Cable Channel runs a program at 8 pm and 9 pm on Mondays and 9pm (CDT) about animal cruelty cases and their resolution. The stories are set in Detroit, Miami, San Francisco and New York (city). They have actually shown worse cases than Baby Blue.
It was through watching these shows that I changed my opinion of pit bulls. I now know that not all pit bulls are vicious. Some make wonderful pets, even after horrendous abuse.
However, I have also seen more about the dog fighting industry and I understand why certain areas have banned pit bulls in sheer self defense.
I only wish that pit bull breeders (and Rottweiler) can somehow pull the breed from the brink of being banned everywhere. What did German Shepherd breeders and Doberman breeders do that got their dogs away from dog fighters and bad owners?
You used to hear all the time about how vicious those breeds were and now you don't. What happened? Does anyone know?
Oh no, people still have their ignorance about GSD's and Dobermans. I have a 1 year old dobie, Lexie that we got from the local Humane Society. I take her everywhere, even to the nursing home that I work at and they all love her. But I had her out during our Sweet Corn Daze (just a day where the whole town gets together and does fun stuff, and eats sweet corn all day) and there were some people that were like "I'm scared of that dog!! The other two dogs are cute, but that dog is scary!!" I just wanted to punch them. If they'd seen her earlier in the day, they'd have noticed that all the little kids were running up, wanting to pet our little dogs (we have a pug/chi mix and a rat terrier as well) and Lexie was the one that was kissing and sniffing them and wanting them to pet her. Some mothers would shoo their kids away whenever they got near us. Stupid!!
But I know you hear a lot less about dobes and GSDs now, than you do pits. I guess pits are just the new fad "tough dog" now.
I watched animal cops denver a week or so ago (repeat) and they seized a few pit bulls that were used for fighting. The one little girl was hiding in her dog house and was too afraid to come out. She did not want to fight again. The cop was finally able to lure her out and she was shaking and ran right to him and fell into his arms. The poor sweet girl :( they put her down because they don't adopt out pit bulls. I cried alot for her... what a horrible life.
It's hard isn't it shiny? If I lived near Baby Blue I'd love to have her.
After my 2nd cat we said no more animals. Then we saw our Meera at the pet supply store (no not a pet shop - he keeps a foster cat in the store so people can meet it and decide to adopt it from the shelter or not) and when we went in to get some cat food she just looked up at us and cried.... she went home with us the next day.
Wow! That is awful. I live in the country and there are lots of hunters, that use dogs. Well, I cannot tell you how many times the precious sweet hunting dogs came up to my house, dragging their rear and looked just like that poor pit. I could save most, but a couple were just too far gone. They were always wonderful dogs and I could always find them a home. I cannot imagine doing that to an animal.
