Some people have no respect for animals, by discriminating them. They have a reason they are alive just as well as humans. There are humans that don’t deserve to see daylight, but yet our police, government and society, don’t do anything about it. But yet, they do something with pit bulls, since they are so terrible. Pit bulls are very well behaved animals and I will prove to you that they are very thoughtful and loving animals that were created on this Earth for a reason just as well as you and I.
When people discriminate Pit Bulls they are basically discriminating humans in the same way. Any dog can bite a human; EVERY dog has the urge to press their teeth into human flesh. It all depends on the owner how you treat that dog, and how you train the dog. If you train a pit bull to be mean and aggressive and a fighting dog, then yes that dog will be mean and more than likely to attack somebody by 95% than a pit bull that was raised by a family of six with little kids around. It’s not the dogs fault they are mean and aggressive towards people, it is their so called “owners” fault being disrespectful to their animal and forcing them to go into a cage to kill other Pit Bulls for money. If you have the balls enough to treat an animal that way, then you deserve to be treated the exact same way as the poor dog got treated. Most of the people in our now a day society don’t realize the damage humans do to our Pit Bulls, good owners who actually treat their animal right get into trouble with their animals instead of the animal abuser who treats their animal like crap, which isn’t fair.
But not only do pit bull gets treated like they are dirt, so do their masters when they are out in public or talk about their dog. When people raise pit bulls to fight, they give pit bulls a terrible rap for them. 80% of animal shelters are filled up mostly with pit bulls because their state that person lives in has a ban against them or they couldn’t afford the insurance they get charged double for. When people do this to animals, not only pit bulls but all animals it disgusts me. How would they feel if I took their beloved child and dropped them off at an adoption center to be adopted out because I didn’t like them? That family would be devastated, because their child was taken from their hearts. Well, that’s how pit bull owners feel when people judge them because they own a pit bull. Scientist that have done studies on Pit Bulls have showed results that the American Pit Bull is less likely to attack you then a Rottweiler, German Shepherd, or a Chow by 82.6%. But yet, pit bulls still face bans across the United States. Not only do Pit Bulls make a great family dog, they make a great best friend, just like my Pit Bull, Mator. Not only do Pit Bulls get discriminated by their looks, past, and owners they also get critiqued by their personality.
The show Pit Bull and Paroles has made a huge effect on my life. According to Tia, the woman that runs and made up the show is a not only a pit bull owner but she has over 200 Pit Bulls at her facility. Tia helps give these abused Pit Bulls second chances at happily ever after homes. The records show that 75% of shelters euthanize all Pit Bulls in less than a week that they are there, regardless of temperament, age, history, etc. I have realized that the world will never get over the fact the society judges Pit Bulls, but if they read facts and information about Pits like I did, they would not only be shocked by the outcome but they would understand Pit Bulls more than they did before. Tia says that the biggest risk factor for dog aggression is irresponsible/cruel dog owners and dogs that are not sprayed or neutered. The most responsible owners have well trained, very social able Pits, and are fantastically great at making first impression on a family.
The show Pit Bulls and Paroles have really opened my eyes on how many dogs get abused each and every single day, when I found out that only one in every 600 Pit Bulls will find a home breaks my heart, because every dog deserves a home. The quote from Tia and her crew will always stay in the back of my mind, “no breed is inherently aggressive or vicious”. Pit Bulls were NEVER bred to be aggressive or vicious. I know some people will never get over the fact that the society believes Pit Bulls are so mean and vicious. But I know that in my heart that Pit Bulls are one of the most amazing and loving family or non-family pets there will ever be. You will never understand a Pit Bull until you have owned and cared for one just like I have. In that case, if you judge a breed, look back in my statistics and read the proof that Pit Bulls are not aggressive.
