8 year old pit bull named Lily pulled her 54 year old owner to safety from an oncoming train May 3rd. Christine Spain, Lily’s owner, was walking home from her boyfriends house when she then collapsed on to the train tracks. Christine Spain suffered no injuries, however Lily did. Lily fractured her pelvis and lost a leg to save her owner. 

Lily was hit by the train to save her owners life, if that’s not loyalty then what is? This was a touching story that shows a pit bulls loyalty. “My hope is that this story is going to get out and show what pit bulls are truly about.” said Boston Police Officer David Lanteigne. Hes right, hopefully this does show people that pit bulls aren’t these mauling machines that they are portrayed to be. Lily helped Spain decrease her drinking problem and kept her sober, Spain is emotionally scarred from this said her son (Lanteigne). Lily is in critical care and it will cost thousands of dollars for Lily’s physical therapy but good people around the country are raising money for Lily and around $40,000 has already been donated.

Chris Browns pit bull, Breezy, had 8 puppies at the end of February and is selling them for $1000 a puppy. Brown has a site dedicated to the puppies and getting them good homes. This isn’t a new career move, his dog was not neutered (like most celebrities and their dogs)

Brown should look at spaying and neutering his dogs so he can avoid this happening again. There are thousands of unwanted pits in shelters across the world and if he wants them to get good homes then he shouldn’t be selling them on the internet. He obviously doesn’t care about the care of the dogs or getting them new homes, he just wants to make money off them. There are thousands of thousands of dogs being euthanized every day, and that’s where his puppies could end up. If Chris really understood the breed he would use his own money and put it towards shelters and to bring awareness to the discriminatory legislation against them. Chris is no advocate for the breed, doesn’t understand them and is simply just a user of their image.
