*I’ve always been passionate about all dogs, especially pit bulls, but this dog was more than just a dog; I believe she was a part of my spirit. Long story short, she escaped where she was being abused and came to my house for some reason, and I was on the edge myself. I found her, she was gentle and loving from the start; she had been severely abused and neglected. I worked with her for awhile and slow but steady she began to gain confidence as well as her wounds i would clean were healing. She is my angel on earth, and she is one reason I wrote this blog.
I can say with all honesty, nothing hurts my heart and soul more than seeing an innocent, defenseless or broken spirited soul either being hurt, previously hurt or fed up with living. I am extremely passionate about police brutality victims just as I am women who are verbally abused by zealots who ignore science and medicine (not to mention the concept of a woman having a life, or, giving a child a humane life). Those are only two issues that enrage me. Lies outrage me, and if you can handle reading the research, facts and statistics below, hopefully you’ll be just as out raged as I am.
It should go without being said, but, for sanity’s sake, one other of my passionate beliefs is standing up for the misjudging, mislabeling, selfish, heartless lies told and believed regarding Pit Bulls.
Personal experience, research, statistics all show there is such a deep misconception regarding these amazing dogs. That these dogs are vicious murderers is a horrible misconception being fueled by society, the media and further fueled by the people who watch for profit media, such as Fox News or CNN. One attack happens, it’s all over the news; Pit Bull Mauls Child! For-profit media are in constant competition with each other, despite being government owned.
The more horrific the story becomes; the quicker the race to get the most gruesome image quickens. If they have to exaggerate the stories a bit to get the incident more shocking, surely, that won’t hurt! In fact, it’ll probably boost the ratings so they exaggerate, even going so far as to labeling non-pit bulls, as Pit Bulls.
Actually, Pit Bulls are trained and used to help people with disabilities, much like Labs are famously known for. They also are trained to help school children who struggle to read out loud, develop this ability faster. When then Pit Bull was legal in England during the Victorian times, they were commonly referred to as “Nanny Dogs” because of their good temperament and their exceptional love and good behavior with children. In older Victorian photos and paintings Pit Bulls can even be seen in many family portraits and paintings.
This hasn’t changed; despite what the media tries to make us think with fear tactics. According to research and the infamous National Canine Temperament Testing Association, the Pit Bull scored second only to the Labrador, coming in with a score of 86.9 (the higher the score, the better the dogs temperament). See Infograph..
(If you google CIA declassified documents, you will find they aren’t even ashamed to admit that they do in fact own the media so what you see on TV is what they want you to see- does that not alarm you?)
Still, despite their owners chaining them up, starving, beating and forcing them to fight and maul others, the dog is being punished and judged incorrectly by too much of society; while
