Two Battered, Broken, & Abandoned Bait Dogs Saved from a Life of Hell

“He looked like he lived his life in a cage. All cramped up and legs crooked and bent up, then when we went to sit he couldn’t – he used his tail to hold himself up.”

6.1.16 - Two Battered, Broken, & Abandoned Bait Dogs Saved from a Life of Hell1

 

Last week, a Philadelphia woman was astounded to look out her window and see two dogs in the worst shape she’d ever seen, just sitting on her porch, silently waiting for help.  They are clearly victims of the opprobrious world of dog fighting, and have been thoroughly tormented.  It is a godsend they were dumped on this woman’s patio, because now they are receiving medical care and love, possibly for the first time in their lives.

“These dogs were on my patio this morning when I was leaving for work… they were badly beaten and used as bait … bleeding. Broken bones… malnourished,” Tara Whitaker said.  “Makes me sick to look at these poor animals. How people can do this is beyond me.”

She spent three hours caring for them before animal control arrived.  They were taken in by Rescue Dogs Rock NYC, the staff of which is doing everything they can to get Sweet Pea and Dizzy treatment for all their physical injuries, and love for their emotional ones.  Tara later contacted the rescue group to share more of her story and her gratitude for caring for the pair:

Thank you so much for taking them in and taking such wonderful care of them. I’m so happy they’re with you and your rescue. God bless you all! Poor babies. When I fed them they gulped down the food, and so thirsty. The female [Sweet Pea] ate more than the male [Dizzy]. He was just in too much painLooked like he lived his life in a cage. All cramped up and legs crooked and bent up then when we went to sit he couldn’t do he used his tail to hold himself up to sit. Was swaying back and forth like he was going to pass out. Eyes shaking back and forth from pain it looked.

As soon as that leash was taken out by ACCT he peed everywhere. Fear. Those dog fighting scumbags use leashes to drag these dogs in for bait. It’s sickening. No wonder he was terrified. He didn’t want to leave me and it broke my heart but cops had to investigate, file [a] report and contact ACCT as protocol. I tried finding a rescue or someone to take them first but two hours passed by and nothing.  I couldn’t let them suffer.  It killed me seeing them like this and sitting with them not knowing what to do.

But I promised them both I’d find a good rescue to save them. And thank the Lord God sent them YOU! I called ACCT constantly and Melissa at Channel 10 news kept on ACCT as well to keep them safe from being put down until rescued. I was down as their sponsor because if no one came for them I would have. Thank you all so very much! I can’t thank you all enough! Keep me posted and give them my love. 

This message comes from the post about them on Rescue Dog’s Facebook page:

These photos pretty much tell their own story… They were used, abused & suffered the ultimate betrayal by humans, used to train other dogs to fight. We are saddened & repulsed by their story. Our hearts are broken. Dizzy is so painful he can barely move. He has bite wounds EVERYWHERE!  Sweet Pea looks awful with her swollen face, but she’s physically & mentally in a better place than Dizzy. He cowers when approached by humans. And why we would he trust us?! After all, the human race has failed these dogs. How does dog fighting flourish in today’s society?!  Why hasn’t it been stopped?! It’s truly mind boggling it exists in our “civilized” society.

We hope the story of these two innocents will help educate people and spread the word! This doesn’t just happen in Philly or NY, it happens EVERYWHERE & we MUST work together to end it!

If you would like to help these poor babies get all the medical care they need, please click here.  You can also donate via PayPal by sending money to this email address:  [email protected].  If you would like to foster or adopt either of them (can be adopted together or separately, as they do not appear to be bonded), please click here.

Hopefully Sweet Pea and Dizzy will be able to overcome their brutal past and go on to thrive in loving homes.  We will keep you updated on their progress.

  1. THE NEVER ENDING BS FROM THE TWISTED LIBERAL MEDIA . PIT BULLS ARE ONE OF THE BREEDS THAT HAVE ATTACKED LONGTIME OWNERS . RESULTING IN DEATH , SEVERE INJURIES AND DISABILITIES . THEY HAVE ESPECIALLY ATTACKED CHILDREN FOR NO REASON .

      1. It amazes me how so many are animal lovers that have no boundaries when it comes to saving abused animals yet think nothing about aborting defenseless babies. They too will be swallowing their own words on Judgement Day.

        1. What it hasto do to talk about aborted babies in an article about ABUSED/TORTURED DOGS?! Are you retarded???
          Go to where they are talking about that issue. There are MANY evil monsters everywhere. But don’t come back here if you do not have knowledege about dog behavior nor compassion for non-human animals!!!

        2. What it has to do to talk about aborted babies in an article about ABUSED/TORTURED DOGS?! Are you retarded???
          Go to where they are talking about that issue. There are MANY evil monsters everywhere. But don’t come back here if you do not have knowledege about dog behavior nor compassion for non-human animals!!!

      2. Animal abuse is a terrible thing yet it amazes me how so many are all about saving abused animals yet think nothing of aborting defenseless babies. One day, they too, will swallow their own words.

          1. Good for you, Mary. But lets not waste any more breath on this one; they are clueless and beyond hope. Once on a message board (for The Daily Show) I told how my grandmother in the late 1950s self-aborted twice, because she couldn’t feed the three kids she already had. (Her husband had come back from Korea an erratic alcoholic.) And do you know what some sanctimonious simpleton said to me? “My condolences on the loss of your uncles and or aunts.” Jeez. I thought I could make them understand! My grandmother was so malnourished she had anemia and a B12 deficiency – almost unheard of outside of third world countries – because what little food they had she gave to her kids. Damn, it makes me angry.

          2. Mary. You are the dumbest B on the earth. Obviously a Trump supporter. Now your buddy Drumpf 2nd dumbest person on the earth after you. This is about these poor animals and all u care about is insulting peoples politics which has nothing to do with their suffering. You are lower than a lowlife.

        1. You need to stop comparing apples and oranges. A LOT has been said about abortion!!!! Stop being stupid

    1. What are you talking about? Are you that blinded by your own agenda to see that these dogs were abused? What has that to do with a liberal agenda?

      1. Sadly, Conservatives have proven time and again that they only care for unborn fetuses. Conservatives are filled with hate for living creatures. They can’t understand love for others, so they bash the evil Liberal agenda of love and care for creatures great and small.

        Once a fetus is actually a baby (human, animal), conservatives have no room for compassion or mercy or support; just hate and judgement. I pity them for their tiny, shriveled hearts.

    2. MARY – YOU COULD SAY THE SAME ABOUT HUMANS, THINK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE SPOUTING OFF NEGATIVE COMMENTS!

    3. You know Mary, I could really let you know how I feel about what you just posted,but it would make me sound like the ignorant person that you are. Know all the facts before you speak. There are more dogs attacked by humans each and every day then there are dogs attacking humans. Pits have gotten a bad rap for many,many years because of humans. All dogs will bite IF provoked or IF they feel threatened.

      1. Very well said. I know there are a lot of good people in this world but this planet news to be cleanse of mankind. Mankind is at the top of the food chain and are responsible for taking care of this planet and all creatures on it. There is so much evil on this planet and brought about by mankind.

        1. @ Mary Life sounds misery filled for you. As you can see you are the small sadistic minority on this blog. So don’t spread that on here, it’s unnecessary. If you’re healthy enough mentally and physically I would recommend finishing your GED, maybe a workforce training program, better yet volunteering locally. Maybe your local animal shelter? There are things to be enjoyed in life aside from politicizing, wishing pain onto animals and sulking your curmudgeon personality on the internet all day.

        3. Mary, your comment is like someone saying, all racist are white. Both statements are just dumb and stupid. But in America, the blame game is fun and when you can get attention from it, all the better. I just hope you don’t have but one child, cause one say hits you in the mouth, you’ll assume the other will too…but in your case, that might happen.

        4. Mary what is wrong with you? Are you such an ignoramus? human beings are the most harmful living creatures who roam this planet , pitfalls were bred by humans , and like a small child , should be nurtured and loved from birth. They are not automatically harmful , ignorant cruel people train them that way with abuse. I feel sorry you cant love every creature. I can only assume you are not a kind person

        5. Mary what is wrong with you?

        6. Mary & Marisel (need I say more)
          You must really be struggling to ease your conscious. I’m sure it’s some of your family & friends who own, fight & abuse animals and tell yourself it’s okay because they’re evil dogs & you need the money. Evil dogs are caused by evil people with sick, devil possessed minds. Start reading articles about service dogs. Get your head out of the gutters & filth. Go save some babies from being aborted, then you won’t have time to fight dogs

        7. Wtf is wrong with you? People can be against voth.you are a miserable person, Mary. I have two pitts and they would be the first one to save your miserable ass if you were in some kind of jeporsy. According to you, if you are againsy animal abuse then you must be for anortion. Makes sense, lol

    4. One day you will wake up and realize dogs are not born as attackers and fierce beasts i have 2 children and 2 pitbulls and they protect play and love my children. Pitbulls are so stereotyped by people like you with such a simple mind. I would bet youve never owned a pit because your to involved in how the media makes it out to be pitbulls are fierce, blood thirsty beasts.

      1. U KNOW I SET HERE AT MY LAPTOP EVER DAY AND CRY MY EYES OUT OF ALL BULLSHIT THIS HORRY OF ANIMALS BEING ABUSED DEATING ALSO BEATING TO DEATH THROWN OUT OF DAMN CAR WHILE MOVING TIED UP TO NECK WITH ROPE THEN BURRIED UP TO THIS DOGS FACE BARELY BREATHING BURRIED WITH DAMNED WHAT LOOKED LIKED CEMENT DIRT”” THANK U AND GOD BLESS U FOR THIS VERY KIND MAN AND HIS LOVING DOG FOR DIGGING THIS HALF DEAD DOG TO SAFTEY.

        1. Oh dear your grammar is really terrible.Did you go to school? Anyway i totally agree with your comments.im in England and we have plenty of dog cruelty here too.It’s usually low life hillbilly retards who are sub human and uneducated.it’s a crying shame that any person could deliberately inflict pain on any animal.Gas Chambers come to mind when i have to rationalise the behaviour that these “cretinous skanks”do.denise in derby.uk.

    5. You are so ignorant. My pit bull was the neighborhood mascot as well as others on the block with the kids. She was very protective of my daughter when she was a baby. Look up your stats, german shephards and doberman pinchers are just as guilty as the pit bulls. Im not a liberal, and you most certainly will not win the title of conservative from me. More like ignorant nut who watches TV too much. How do you like being part of the herd??

    6. True, Mary. Once these abused dogs are vetted and in full health, they pose a risk of unstable gentics and unprovoked attacks. All pitbulls are liabiities.

      1. Marisel you are just wrong. I am sorry that you and Mary don’t research past fear mongering propaganda. Open more than one book. Listen to all sides of the debate. First know that there is no pure breed pit. The pit was only added to the name to describe the arena the bull dog was thrown into to fight (to entertain humans). As the stewards of the earth and all the animals on it, mankind is failing.

      2. I know many people that have taken in and adopted Pitbulls…..they have become loving pets. These dogs become mean because of their owners. Once tramatized, they can not take any yelling, hitting, etc.

    7. @Mary – Are you insane??? Yes, pitties can be very aggressive and mean but why?? Because they are treated like this. There are dogs trained to attack and hurt, as was done to these 2 innocents. Then when they were of no use, they were dumped. I’m not a big fan of pit bulls and I wouldn’t own on. But these 2 deserve to be cared for and hopefully they will get over their horrific fear of humans. Someone that loves pit bulls and understands them, will give them a good home and a soft bed to be happy forever. To blanketly say what you’ve said, you are a heartless woman.

    8. I had a elderly lady from my church, that was attacked by 2 pit bulls that had gotten out of their fence. She died from the result.

    9. Even if your comment was true, which it isn’t, how can you justify “abuse & torture”, not murder or euthanizing, but torture for the sake of money and entertainment. Please evaluate your heart if you have one. Thank you so much to the people who love and care. There is no doubt you will be rewarded in this life and the life to come.

    10. It’s the owners that create the bad behavior. They are a powerful breed of dog, but they have a huge heart and will do WHATEVER the owner wants. They want to please. If the owner is a violent dirt bag, then the dog will become the same. NO dog deserves to be cruely treated like these dogs. It’s not their fault- go look at who owned them. A person is using these dogs to perpetrate violent, aggressive behavior. Put dog/animal abusers in jail! THEY are the real threat!

      1. u said it correctly. Lets get some stronger bills on the books. IN-stead of a slap on the wrist and a small fine. It might not completely solve the problem but maybe send a lasting ,more meaningful message.

    11. Clearly you “pit bull” haters are uneducated. Do you not remember when Dobermans and Rott;s were the dangerouse breeds. Get over yourself do these two look dangerous? I Think not.

    12. And if you truly believe that your a F(*&^%$ IDIOT! Its THE HUMAN how trains the animal and the HUMAN who mistreats them … Its always the HUMAN who is responsible for the abuse of the animal who attacks, DO you think a dog just says oh i think ill kill a baby today??? OMG its lack of training. its not just pit bulls its ANY DOG that has not been trained that can do that.

      I HOPE TO GOD you don’t own a pet, ONlY MORONS Say things like that..

    13. I am a liberal and damned proud of it. I do, indeed, wish pit bull terriers could just be bred out of existence because of their tendency to become suddenly and unaccountably aggressive, even vicious. However, no living thing should be treated like this………even Trump supporters. The condition of these dogs is a shame and the people who did this should be publicly
      shamed and then locked away until they “see the error of their ways.” I have three lovely grandchildren and I truly do not such people as would do this alive in the same world as the Grands.

      1. Fuck off ignorant fool. You and your blood line should be non existent. Especially if they think like you. IGNORANT

    14. Mary I agree {with xyz} you should have been aborted! You are a “breed discriminator” and are ignorant & should rot in hell! It’s not the breed dumb ass, it’s the person who raises them! Pit Bulls have always been given a bad rap & been discriminated against! All the Pit Bulls I have ever known are very sweet, loving & loyal!

    15. Mary,
      You are an uneducated heartless moron. Let me educate you please. First, I am a conservative. Animals, unlike humans, are loyal, loving and have compassion. Animals in the wild will kill, but for survival. Domesticated animals hurt to protect. They are not born to kill, they are bred and trained to kill. Pit bulls have a bad name because of people, much like you, We had a pitfall we saved from the shelter. He was the most loving guy you would ever meet. He was so devoted to us. He never once attempted to bite or hurt anyone. He was the most gentle creature you ever saw. So Mary, you are an idiot and I hope you never are allowed to own a dog or raise a child. You are a perfect example of whats wrong with this world

      1. You’re an idiot Mary. You just don’t understand the humans make them that way.

        Just like evil kids have shitty parents…….

        I don’t even know why I’m wasting my time talking to someone so obviously ignorant.

    16. Mary,
      That’s a load of CRAP! I had a pit bull for 13 years. He didn’t have a mean bone in his body. I also just adopted a pit bull puppy 3 months ago, she’s almost 1 now. I rescued her. She was beat and starving, you could count her ribs from across the room. She is super sweet. She now loves to walk around the house carrying around her “blankie.” You can train any dog to be mean! I have seen some much smaller dogs that are mean, the difference is you just don’t hear about them simply because they are not pit bulls, or Rottweilers. Clearly you don’t understand it’s the people who are at fault, not the dogs. JUDGE THE DEED, NOT THE BREED!!!

    17. To all who rant against pit bulls a breed, can be said about Human Beings a whole species. The evil humans perpetrate on each other and the envoirnment and animal kingdom cannot compare to the pit bull attacks, ( because of how humans raised them). My heart goes out to these put bulls more so than the hatred I see spewed from so called conservative Christians, when God loves all creatures great and small.

    18. Mary, You are a clueless, ignorant, hateful, human being. It’s not the dog or the breed its the owner and how the dogs are raised and treated. God, morons like you are dangerous!!

    19. You can tell your one of the many UNEDUCATED IDIOTS!!!!!!! ASSHOLES LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON THIS KEEPS GOING ON.. Or your just another one of these lazy SCUMBAGS and use dog fighting to support your lazy ass!!!

    20. well played troll. you post your lies on a pro pitbull rescue site to incite the emotions of people. Then you sit back and watch the comments fly back and forth. I rebuke you “Mary” in the name of Jesus Christ. may God have mercy on your soul.

    21. You sick mental person! Stfu…you know nothing about Pits and Pit mixes! Liberal?? Far from it….I’m a dog groomer and work with this breed everyday I even have one….I have NEVER even met one with a mean bone! Why even respond…it’s assholes like you with your prejudice that creates problems for these dogs! Get a life!

  2. I am so thankful that there are so many wonderful people in the world like Tara. I am also extremely grateful for the many dog rescues across the country. Most people have no idea what some people do to harm their dogs. Maybe it is better that they don’t, because it is heart-breaking! I hope these two blessed dogs will recover soon. I admit that I am skeptical for Dizzy. His injuries sound life-threatening. But animals are so resilient! There is always hope.

  3. why would a scumball like you even be at this site I have a pit rescue and if a dirtball like you were to touch my baby I will be the one you should label asbad

  4. “How people can do this is beyond me.” These are not people, these are less than animals. Just having two legs and opposing thumbs doesn’t qualify one for a person. Reason, empathy, etc. do.

  5. Stop the blacks from harvesting these animals for fighting. That is the whole problem. The BLACKS and some HIspanics.. Can’t you stupid people see that you have to stop the violence against these animals. I was raised with a pit bull. She was the nicest and kindest dog. The blacks feed them gun powder to make their insides burn so they are mean. Open your f——g eyes. You are just a bunch a kind little women who never see the world for what it is. Get rid of the people not the dogs.

    1. Do you know how stupid your comment is. Sadly animals are abuse by all races so don’t try to single Blacks and Hispanics. Instead of saying something positive about the dogs you decided to make a racist comment. Its just show that you don’t care about animal abuse you just wanted to show people how stupid you are.

      1. Jackie, you are correct. The majority of these cases are done by the blackies. Some white, some Hispanic but the majority are the blacks. Don’t even listing to that troll dave. He is probably a dog fighter himself. And for the record, I don’t care what color you are, if you hurt an animal, child or the elderly i wish you a painful, tortuous death.

  6. Please read till the end before you judge me. Last month I was walking my bichon (15 lb.) dog.
    I heard a bark and saw a pitbull jump it’s fence and charge at us. I wasn’t fast enough out of fear. He clamped onto my dogs neck
    and just kept shaking her. I have no idea how I did it maybe adrenaline and love for my dog but I was
    able to free my dog from it’s jaws. By the grace of God, the pitbull jumped back over the fence. Afterwards an 80 (approx.) yr. old man did come out and said he saw everything. Called the police
    for me. I kept apologizing he was too afraid to help. My dog has received 70 stitches and 2 surgeries.
    More surgeries to come. I received 35 stitches with 4 broken fingers. Canada allows owners of animals who attack to quarantine there own animals in their home. You constanly hear of people and children being killed including their owners buy pitbulls. More common that any other breed. The pain my dog is going thru makes me wonder if I should put her thru this. My heart is broken. Now I am a lover of animals including pitbulls. Man should be treated the way he treats his animals.
    It truly is so sad. I believe the kill instinct is instilled in these dogs with training. Humans are responsible for the training and incest breeding.of these animals. What is the answer to this problem?.
    .

    1. My heart felt sympathy for your loss. I loss my dog to a similar attack but it was a German Shepard that killed him.

    2. Stop breeding. SPAY AND Neuter !!!!! SPAY AND NEUTER IRRESPONSIBLE dog/cat/animal/pet OWNERS. ESPECIALLY THE ONES WITH BRAIN ISSUES (OWNERS)

  7. Mary pits have always gotten a bad rap because human being are the real problem not the pit bulls
    it’s people who make them what they are if you abuse the dog to make him a attack people it’s because your a pussy and live through the dog the dog becomes what he or she is because of the owner. Pits are no different than any other dog. Raise them right and they will be like any other dog you don’t need to beat them to make them tough and protect you that comes natural to any dog.

  8. Jackie, you are correct. The majority of these cases are done by the blackies. Some white, some Hispanic but the majority are the blacks. Don’t even listen to that troll dave. He is probably a dog fighter himself. And for the record, I don’t care what color you are, if you hurt an animal, child or the elderly i wish you a painful, tortuous death.

  9. I would trust my child to a pit bull before I would 90% of the humans. I know my dogs won’t rape and beat my child. BTW, I have 2 rescue pits and they are the sweetest dogs I have ever owned. So screw you pit bull haters. I have 2 love bugs that prove your stupid theories wrong.

    1. All states need to pass laws that severely punish people who do this. Ohio just past severe felony convictions to a group who abused dogs. More states should do this. In the past courts have had difficulty with these cases because our justice system did not recognize that these incidents are criminal. Now that one state has past a law which permanent puts a felony conviction on record for animal abuse, we should see other states follow suit. Personally I am sick of this kind of thing. Human beings can be so sick.

  10. Having worked in the veterinary industry for over 40 years in all departments, I have met more Pit Bulls in daily life than most of you see in 2 lifetimes. The breed itself is not the problem, it is the humans that raise them not understanding the mind of any animal. Any dog not well socialized or abused, will be fearful enough to attack. There are dogs out there with personality disorders, the same as some humans among us. Stop condemning a whole breed based on things you read without knowing how that animal was raised. One of the nastiest dog breeds I have met has been a Chihuahua. But because their bite is small but painful, no one pays attention to those breeds. Met a lot of nasty Chihuahuas and smaller dogs, not as many larger ones. Humans are the biggest problems animals have.

    1. I agree Danelady, Chihuahuas are the worst, the are mean and will bite if you look at them wrong, I too love dogs and have noticed that bigger dogs are generally nicer.

  11. There’s no justification for the abuse of any of God’s creatures. As for the people trying to compare abortion of babies, I’m sure these dogs would much have preferred to never have been born. Please don’t try to dilute the epidemic of abuse with other evils. One has nothing to do with the other.

  12. i cry every time i read these horrible storied. I pray God will heal them and let them live. they are scared little babies and they dont ever deserve this. Sometimes I pray to win a Lottery but not for the money for me but to help dogs and cats that are treated this way.. All for Gods Glory to do good for others. Knowing me I would be broke in the first year because i would want to save every one of them.. my husband constantly tells me please when you go to the grocery store would you stop buying so much dog food to feed dogs on the side of the road.. but i cant help it. I have a neighbor that has a dog and just ignores the dog daily and he comes to sit on my porch and puts his head in my lap just for me to love on him… he doesnt even bother the cat that hangs around that i tamed. i had two mini schnauzers that past and had them for 15 yrs. they were my heart and soul. i miss them daily and i love them to death.. R.I.P. sweet boo and pooties.. i love dogs and they are so sweet and will love you even when people dont love them..
    God my prayer is to heal the sick minds of those who love MONEY and feel they have to use animals to fill their greedy hearts.. (wait they have no heart).. just please Lord Almighty know that i want to help in your honor and for your honor and all the Glory be to You!!!

  13. Mary, how ignorant of you to post a comment like that, even if what you said was true, no abuse of any kind should ever be allowed or imposed on any living creature, reading your comment I can tell your are a self center selfish human being, these dogs like many other animals are brutally forced to fight, what part don’t you get? Have a heart!

  14. A couple of years ago I rescued a dog with wounds down to his skull, long open wounds on his legs.. nothing fit the hit by a car scenario.. He had kept rolling in the dirt to get rid of flies and rub his sores. He had been dumped on the Navajo Reservation. I could count every rib and back bone. The dogs in this article look GOOD compared to this guy I found.. Even dragging by a truck wouldn’t fit his wounds. When I took him to the vet he also had infestation of fleas and ticks.. the vet I took him to said he was a bait dog.. I had no clue.. after several hundred dollars of care– LOTS of sutures to sew him up, cutting of dead tissue- our local ER nurses chipped in- he is now a healthy, happy guy very devoted to me. Makes me sick to think of him out there so hurt and dumped into the hot sun.. His eyes still sparkled and he is a wonderful companion. It has taken some time to get him over his abuse, but he trusts me.

  15. @ Mary
    Life sounds misery filled for you. As you can see you are the small minority on this blog. So don’t spread that on here, it’s unnecessary. If you’re healthy enough mentally and physically I would recommend finishing your GED, maybe a workforce training program, better yet volunteering locally. Maybe your local animal shelter? There are things to be enjoyed in life aside from politicizing, sadistically wishing pain onto animals and sulking your curmudgeon personality on the internet all day.

  16. Mary and Chery….can you just stop with your ignorant nonsense. These are suffering animals and they need help. Please folks, contribute and help them.

  17. Luckily, there are a lot of people that care about abused animals. The people that do will help, and the people that don’t will continue to harangue and harass the ones that do. It is simply ignorance. Arguing with them or responding to their remarks will not change anything. There will always be more irrelevant comparisons. As for the rest of us, let’s send some money for the care of these sweet, lost babies. Adopt from local shelters, volunteer time where you can, or donate money or items to your shelter. It all helps. xox

  18. I got my first pitbull in 2005. My grandson was 3 and now he is 14. My pit is friendly to all my neighbors and the people who come to my house. She is kept indoors and goes to grooming every two weeks. She has never bit anyone or is aggressive towards other dogs. Oh I have a pekingese too. Sometimes I’m shame because I got this friendly dog who is suppose to be a dominant force and don’t seem vicious enough to ward off criminals. When we go to the dog park she wags her tail from the time the car stops and till we leave. But of course when people see her they get nervous and I smile under my breath saying she will probably run faster than me if something happens. Now my pekingese is the one I have to put up when company comes over. She barks at every little noise and for some reason doesn’t like kids at all. Who would have thought.

  19. ALL BREEDS OF DOGS ATTACK , IF YOU MISTREAT THEM THEY WILL MISTREAT YOU AS WELL IT’S ACCORD WHO OWNS THESE BREEDS OF DOGS. I HAVE A American red pit and i had him for a year now he never attacked anyone oh heck he’s even scared of his own shadow.

  20. My daughter had a Staffie – knew the breeder and bloodline, not bred for ill purposes but for love of the dogs. She was a wonderful girl without a mean bone in her body. When my daughter moved across the country her pup stayed with my Mom and her retired brother. She became their best buddy and my Uncle’s gardening partner. They loved her to death and she returned it ten-fold. Breeding and upbringing make all the difference for this or any breed.
    I hope these two get a fair shake and can be rehabilitated into a loving home for the remainder of their lives. Seeming to be the bait dogs, I’d think the were not aggressive enough for the scum that treated them so atrociously. Glad they ended up in a place where their rescue and rehab will happen.
