Posts Tagged ‘Pits’

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.

I’ve been asked to do a post on ear cropping and what I think about it, so here it is!

Do I agree with cropping a dogs ear? No, I don’t agree with it. I do however, think its looks good if its for show. But I love pit bulls floppy ears! It suits them much better then if they were cropped. Cropping a pit bulls ears give them that stereotype of a pit bull look which makes people take one look at them and scare them, and i’m all about giving positive press about pit bulls. I think pits look good both ways! I’m not going to judge them if they have cropped ears just because I don’t fully agree with ear cropping. So here are some styles of ear cropping:

The battle crop: This crop is called the “battle crop” because it is cut very low and is usually cut this low either for show or dog fighting.

The short crop: This crop is longer than the battle crop and is usually used for show.

The show crop: This is the most popular and requested for show and overall.

The long crop: The longest crop for pit bulls and it isn’t as popular.

If you are planning or looking into cropping your pit bulls ears then look more into it and find a very experienced vet that has done it many times before. Ear cropping is a very safe procedure if done properly and its very important that you look into the vet!

Great news everyone! Snoopy, the innocent pit bull that was impounded and on death row because of another dogs attack on Snoopy, he is finally released! After thousands of signatures on the petition and thousands likes on the Facebook group, Snoopy is going back home and reunited with his owner! I signed the petition and liked the group on Facebook, and I feel like I have helped save a life. I am so happy for Snoopy, and hopefully the city of Deltona will not make a mistake like that again because no dog and especially no pit bull deserves to be impounded and almost put down because of false information. All the signatures and likes on Facebook has freed Snoopy, everyone who helped should be very proud of themselves because you saved a life! Your going home now Snoopy!

Why do children seem to be the victims of most Pit bull attacks? I read so many news stories everyday about pit bull attacks and a lot of them are small kids being the victims of it. There is a lot of reasons like the dogs were trained to kill, attack, socialized, or not even trained, but also NEVER leave a dog alone with a child, IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT BREED. I once read a story about a Pomeranian who killed a child while the owner left the dog alone with the child for just a few minutes. It should be common knowledge that you never leave a child alone with a dog. No matter what breed, shape or size, you just don’t. Pit bulls do make wonderful companions for family’s with children! Pits and children go great together, however please make sure you socialize your pit bull and train and raise it properly because its possible to run into these problems. EVERY dog should be raised and trained, no matter what the breed. I stress this because most people think that only the “tougher” breeds should be trained and sometimes people are careless with training.
