Meet Sassy:

Sassy Is 11 years old and we adopted her from the SPCA as a kitten, she was found abandoned behind a pub. She is the last of the 2 other cats we had, but they passed away. Sassy is like my child and I love her so much, she is very affectionate, especially before she sleeps or before I go to bed. She sleeps right next to my head, and she has been for the past 4 or 5 years now. She is very special to me!


Meet Sadie: 

Sadie is our new addition to the family! She is a red and white Siberian Husky, and 11 months old now. We got her June of 2011 and she has been working out great! After Chimo passed away (see blog post May 9, 2011) we wanted another Siberian because we just feel in love with them. Sadie is sweet, hyper, silly, and happy. She is doing training right now and she is doing really well (the picture below was taken when she was about 3 or 4 months old)

Looking for a new story to blog about I always search for top news stories on Google, When I search up “pit bulls” only attacks, bites, and mauling’s, come up. Its never anything positive. But, when I search up Golden Retriever, nothing like attacks come up, just positive things. I even searched up “Golden Retriever attacks” and there was news on that, however the title of the story didn’t indicate it, whereas if I were to search up “pit bull attacks” then all the headlines would indicate it. All I searched up was “pit bulls” and the internet is flooded with news on recent attacks and bites. Its like all that people want to see is bad things about pit bulls to keep this image the media has and keeps creating. I hope one day, I don’t have to see all these negative things, and don’t have to search for the good things.

Its not just pit bulls that are being targeted by the breed ban, Its any dog that fits the physical characteristics of a pit bull. Any physical characteristics like how short the dogs coat is, the broadness of its head or jaw, they will also be targeted by BSL. No dog deserves to be banned because of its breed or what they look like, this is a new level of discrimination. Repel BSL!

Fayetteville, N.C

Cumberland county officials are considering placing a ban on adopting out dogs of the bully breed because there have been too many frequent attacks and bites on humans and other animals. The animal control advisory board in the county have discussed the issue on Monday and any policy the want to change will have to be approved by the county board of commissioners. Cumberland animal control director, John Lauby, says he considers it ill-advised. “I have never said I wanted to ban a breed or any specific breed, and the reason is I know from statistics (that) banning breeds doesn’t work,” says Lauby. Lauby would rather do more screening on those who want to adopt pit bulls, rottweilers, and chows. He wants them to go to people who know how to care for them properly and wont use them for breeding or to roam freely. The chairmen of the animal control board, Cristóbal Berry-Cabán, says the shelter does not have enough resources to check up on potential adopters and he also says that they will try and send such breeds to rescue groups, but if no group can then the dogs will have to be put down…

I cant imagine a ban on only adopting bullies, EVERY single dog in a shelter needs a home, including pit bulls and other bullies. That is going way too far, no dog deserves being treated like that. And if they cant find a home or a group that will take them they have to put them down? Mind you, this is for the pit bulls and other bully dogs they are planning this for. Pit bulls are the most unwanted dog and with that said, they need a forever home and to be adopted out. I understand people are concerned about the attacks and what not, but that doesn’t mean the dogs don’t deserve and need a home. I hope this policy doesn’t pass, it is so unfair.

Dunn, North Carolina. 

Police in Dunn say they have gotten many calls about aggressive pit bulls in the last year. Chief B.P Jones requested a city wide ban on the breed. There has been 44 calls about aggressive pit bulls, but no injuries. “But pit bulls are still a dangerous breed” Jones said. He plans on discussing his ban idea with the city counsel this weekend. ” The owners of the breed don’t take the necessary precautions to protect people from the dogs” Says Jones, he also said: “They treat pit bulls like any other dogs, but the pit bull dog is different from other dogs”

This police officer, Jones, is completely ignorant and uneducated. He thinks that this is a dog that is naturally aggressive and has been like that since they were bred. Which is, of course, untrue. People SHOULD treat pit bulls like any other dog because they are like any other dog! There is nothing different about a pit bull than any other dog. The only thing that’s different about pit bulls than any other dog, is their bad reputation, and the media has done a fantastic job of doing that (cue the sarcasm). Pit bulls shouldn’t be banned, irresponsible owners  should be! It isn’t the dogs fault, its the owners. That goes for poor breeding too, because its the owners who are breeding them that way.” The owners of the breed don’t take the necessary precautions to protect people from the dogs” What are the necessary precautions? That’s what I wanna know. All you need is to train, raise them properly, and provide unconditional love for your pit bull and you won’t run into these problems. Only if Jones would understand and educate himself, maybe he would think twice about a ban.
