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.

Alright, I guess the title of this post speaks for itself. Whenever I see or hear about a new BSL law being put in, it makes me angry. The senator of District 9, Bernalillo, Sue  Beffort. She is planning to ask the governor to introduce a legislation this January. It will be a “dangerous dog” law and under this “dangerous dog” law Pit Bull will be included and any that share the physical traits of a Pit Bull.

What can YOU do to stop this law?:

Email:  Sue.Beffort@nmlegis.gov

Call: Capitol phone:  (505) 986- 4395 Home:  (505) 292-7116

I WILL be sending a email to say that I oppose this horrible law! If you want to stop this act, then you should call or write and tell them you oppose this law too. One person can make a difference, and if you live in New Mexico and own a Pit Bull and you don’t want your family member to be euthanized because of its breed  then call or email! And even if you don’t live in New Mexico then you should still do it because you will be saving countless Pit Bulls from being killed. Save the breed!

I cant stress enough how important it is to spay and neuter your pet! During the winter months there are so many cats and dogs that don’t have a nice warm bed to go home to, and one of the reason for that is because people don’t have their animals fixed. When you have an animal that becomes pregnant and has a litter, you expect to find homes for all the puppies or kittens right? And you will probably find homes for all of the little ones, but most of them will just end up on the street once they grow up because they are no longer that cute kitten/puppy that you first got. That ins’t the only reason though. About 70,000 kittens and puppies are born everyday, and many dogs and cats are being euthanized because they are homeless.

Here is WHY you should spay and neuter:

1. It will reduce the chance of your dog or cat getting cancer.

2. Your dog or cat will likely be more affectionate and better behaved.

3. It decreases the homeless animal population.

4. It healthy for them! They will live longer and happier lives.

5. It reduces the number of fights, dog bites, and accidents.

6. They will be less aggressive.

7. You’ll save an animal from being euthanized.

Myths of spaying and neutering:

1. Spaying/ neutering changes their personality.

-That is false! Their personality wont change, but they will be a lot more affectionate and calm.

2. Spaying/neutering makes them lazy.

-This is false! Usually a dog or cat gets fat and lazy because its over fed and lack exercise.

3. My dog or cat should and has the right to experience sex.

-False! For your cat or dog, sex, is just the instinct to reproduce. All it is, is about reproduction to them.

To bring pit bulls into this, of course they should be spayed/ neutered too, but when people see an aggressive pit bull, the aggressiveness is most likely caused by them not being neutered because male pit bulls can become aggressive if they are not neutered, just like any other male dog! So save a life and spay and neuter your pets!
