I was just reading basset_lover's post about the pitbull getting cigarette burns, and it made me think.
Why are pit bulls always the ones getting abused? It's so sad. And what I find amazing is that these dogs are being abused horribly, and never, if not rarely turn around and attack the person hurting them. Yet they get a reputation of being killers? Sad, sad. It's almost like someone is just trying to make the dogs turn around and snap at them so then pit bulls can get a true reputation of being evil. It's pretty much doggy racism. I don't see the difference between human racism or doggy racism, because both are based on steryotypes from other people's point of view, usually the point of view of those who hate the breed. I love pit bulls, And I don't see how you couldn't. Heart CP
The worst part is you can never convince people who are dead set that pit bulls are bad, that maybe, just maybe they don't know anything about the breed. People who have never been around pits before will swear on their life that they are evil, attack dogs. I get so mad and frustrated with these people.
I agree chili!! It could be because they are trying to beat them into submission or beat the spirit out of them. With circus elephants,when they fist start to train them they chain them up and beat them and dont feed or water them,they say it breaks the wild spirit.I have noticed with my new rottie that he has been hit,if you raise your hand he crouches and turns his head.That may be why he is so untrusing of strangers.It breaks my heart to see him scared like that,at the shelters I see dog that have been hit and they are terrified,and most of them are the "mean breeds" like Rotts,GSD's,Pits,Dobes,and mastiffs.
