The month of October is “National Pit bull Awareness Day” and because of that, the League for Animal Protection and the town of Huntington are co-sponsoring a free spay and neuter program for pit bulls and pit mixes. There are veterinarians that have agreed to participate in the program so during October, the owners are able to bring their pits in and have them fixed. There are so many pit bulls in shelters that desperately need a home and by spaying and neutering them, we are able to control the population of pit bulls so we don’t see more in the shelter.

I received an email a while ago from this very kind women named Ruby who shared a personal story of  her two pit bulls, Ace and Cash. One day Cash and Ace went off to explore, but they were no where to be found after they had searched for them. A few days later her moms boyfriend, Aces owner found them. They were shot and left on the side of the road by a farm. These dogs had never done anything to anyone, and Cash was only just a puppy. 

This story touched me and I had tears in my eyes after reading it. I decided to make a post about this because I think people need to hear about this and it needs to be out there. Two innocent pit bulls were shot and killed, most likely because they were pit bulls. This is not okay, this is disgusting and makes me lose hope in humans because I don’t understand how people can kill two innocent dogs. I’m glad she personally shared this story with me, it touched my heart. 

Ruby told me that she tries her hardest to clear the pit bulls name and fight for them. She shares the same passion as I do, we both will not stop the pit bulls fight for justice and restoring their reputation. Thank you Ruby for emailing me and sharing your story, I really do appreciate it! And continue to fight for the pit bulls!

So before the weekend I was walking my dog Sadie around our neighborhood and just as I was coming back I heard this ticking noise on the pavement and Sadie looked back I noticed because the leashed tugged and I then I looked back and noticed the dog, Dawson, down the street was charging at us with its teeth bared. He grabbed Sadie and swung her around full force, and took her off the ground with its teeth and started shaking her very hard. He was full on attacking my dog and I went into shock, I didn’t know what to do at all all I could do was scream at the top of my lungs and hope that someone would come out to help. Sadie was trying to fight back, but mind you she is still a 9 month old puppy and a lot smaller than Dawson. Dawson finally backed off and my neighbors came out and so did Dawson’s owners. They said that Dawson “plays” too aggressively. Yeah right, that was NOT playing. Dawson is this beautiful Malamute that got along great with Chimo, before Chimo died. But Sadie is the 3rd dog Dawson has attacked now. Luckily, Sadie wasn’t hurt too bad, she was in shock just as much as I was and her back paw nail was bleeding, but I’m I think that was just from the pavement. I don’t believe in hitting an animal but if i wasn’t so in shock I would have kicked or hit Dawson so hard.

Dawson is always chained up, never walked, and not properly socialized. This has nothing to do with breed, but how he is raised. I do not blame Dawson, I blame his stupid owners. Since Sadie is the 3rd dog Dawson has attacked, the local animal shelter (L.A.P.S) will be contacted because I don’t want to see another dog attacked by him. I wanted to share this story because It is so important that you train and raise your dogs properly! I can’t stress this enough. This is a perfect example of  good dog raised poorly. So please train and raise your dogs properly and don’t neglect their needs.
