Pit Bull Comforts Deer Tangled in Fence Until Help Arrives

Gotti is a pit bull, and is proving once again that all a pit bull ever wants is love.  Upon seeing a deer caught in his human’s fence in their backyard, Gotti sprang into action alerting his humans of the situation.  Gotti then stayed with the frightened deer, covering it in kisses.

Gotti’s human came to the spot where the deer was tangled up and eventually got the deer free of the fence.  Gotti still stayed with the deer every step of the way.

When the deer was finally released, it then refused to leave Gotti!  The dog had done so well comforting the deer, it appeared the deer wanted to stay in the backyard with her new doggie buddy.  Animal control had to be called in to relocate the deer to a safer area.

Gotti is living proof that these dogs are a much misunderstood breed.  They are in no way “naturally” violent dogs, but products of violent humans.  All pit bulls ever want to do, is please their humans, and be loved.  Is that so wrong?

    • Most dogs would have eaten it. My neighbor’s pitbulls would have eaten it and they are good with kids (so far). This is a pointless article that proves nothing about real dog behavior.

      • Other than dog behavior is highly individual. A complex combination of genetics and environment that render most breed based generalizations invalid.

  1. What a wonderful story. Pitbulls are not inherently dangerous. It is the sick and twisted owners that abuse their dogs that have caused all of this negativity.

    • I’ll be sure to tell that to the 25 people killed this year by pit bulls… oh wait–I can’t; they’re DEAD! Try imagining the horrific agony of being mauled TO DEATH by a pit bull. Then imagine that happening to a 4 year old, like Logan Shepard of Riverview, FL by 2 Pit Bulls July 19; or a 75 year old like Betty Clark of Canyon Lake, TX killed by 2 Pit Bulls on Jan. 6 of this year. On average, so far this year, someone has been killed by a pit bull every 12 days. Some of these pit bull attacks were from the family dog that was well trained and had never shown signs of aggression before. The only common factor in severe, and too often fatal, attacks, is not abuse or lack of training–it is the breed. Of the number of people killed by dog attacks, pit bulls were responsible for 62.5% of the deaths. 7 other breeds or mixed breeds were responsible for the remaining 37.5%. Pit bulls killed over 6 TIMES as many people as the #2 breed on the list. PIT BULLS ARE INHERENTLY DANGEROUS! It would be completely idiotic to believe that sick, twisted owners, to whom Ken referred, intentionally chose pit bulls to abuse–that would be as insane as it would be dangerous. Choose very carefully and wisely the breed of dog with which you trust the lives of your loved ones.

      • You remind me that humans and pit bulls are alike in that there are individual exceptions. Some are nice and some are blinded by opinion.

      • You Sir, are ignorant! The ONLY reason Pit’s have a bad rep is because of their OWNERS abuse & miss use of the breed! I’m sorry for the people you mentioned above, I truly am. And i’m sorry that it just HAPPENED to be by Pit Bull Breeds that were to blame. But you see, that’s what the news want’s to focus on because it. It causes the ‘mindless’ to hear miss information about breed that they’re spewing out; that then breeds fear, & fear makes better news! When my (then) 4 yr old son was standing in our front yard, watching his brother & cousin play football. He was just standing there when our neighbors Black Lab, charged, pinned & mauled Him. 1/2″ more to the right & my son would be blind in his left eye! Why is HIS story any less news worthy? Because he wasn’t attacked by a Pit Bull, THAT’s why!

      • You realize more people are killed by vending machines than that right? Maybe try worrying about something else

      • You are an idiot too. Half the stories the news claim they say pit bulls were involved pit bulls WERE NOT involved so get your facts straight before you open your mouth. I have my facts straight, I have proof to stand behind, including proof that even pit bulls who were forced to fight were rehabilitated and are living a wonderful life now in a happy home. Yes you read that right. Will only give one example, one of Michael Vick’s fighting dogs named Bella was used to train and fight as well as breeding. When rescue went down there to help the police with the raid the dogs were scared and not vicious. They ALL went through rehabilitation and all are doing wonderfully. Most of the attacks you hear on the news are NOT pit bulls. When you hear about a dog attack do you think people would watch or read about the news if they mention a little toy poodle mauled a woman as she walked down the road to the corner store. Hell no. So to get viewer attention they say Pit bulls. We had a water meter guy who was attacked by 3 dogs in our town. Our news station said all three were pit bulls. The water guy when he found out what the news did got pissed and did a special story with his very own video and blasted it all over FB. He said NO ONE of the dogs was a pit bull. One was a husky, a lab and a chihuahua. He told the news people to get their facts straight. They publicly apologize for the mistake. So my reason for telling you all that is just maybe you’ll educate yourself by maybe volunteering at your local shelter or rescue facility and spend some time with Pit bulls. I bet it would change your mind about them. Am I saying they are all good, no I am not. Just like every husky, or German shepherd and even humans etc can turn in a heart beat. My knowledge and first hand experience…I rescue and work with dogs daily that I’ve rescued. 3 being pit bulls, husky, german shep, shih tzu, yorki poo, boxer…etc etc..

      • And I would welcome a Pitbull into my house any day with my young son! You only know about pitbull attacks because any other time its defined as a “dog attack” and no breed is mentioned… Pits bulls are NOT inherently Dangerous!!! Pit bulls are kind loving dogs who unfortunately get bad raps because of stupid idiotic BAD PEOPLE who raise them!!! And your % only show when the breed was actually identified! Most the time it isn’t… More people are bitten by everyones “beloved” Golden Retriever than Pitbulls… but they don’t have a bad name because the household family dogs… I remember when I was a kid that Dalmatians were bad dogs… and not family dogs… Or reading about when they tried to ban German Shepherds for being aggressively dangerous dogs… but wait now they are used by police forces all over… Maybe if you do your research better, and meet some pitbulls MAYBE your mind might change….

        NO BAD DOGS ONLY BAD OWNERS!!!!!

      • After working for a vet for over 45 years I cannot but help wonder how many of these dogs were actually pitt bulls- 80% of the dogs brought into our office and the owners said they were pitt bulls were not- did not even have a passing acquaintance with one- they just wanted to say they had one! When I raised dobermans I was told about a pair of vicious dobermans who attacked a mail carrier in the country- when I check into it turns out they were bird dogs! Two weimaraners and they did not attack the carrier- they chased cars and were trying for the wheels when he stuck his arm down there and whacked them with the mail- the dog was being attacked from behind and not knowing what was hitting at him
        – well naturally one of them bite back!

      • The only reason pit bulls are more dangerous than chihuahuas is because of their size! Check and see how many people were killed by other breeds during the time you are quoting- check and see how many of these breeds were out there- if 10 people are killed by pit bulls and 2 are killed by Ibizan Hounds and there are 200,000 pitts out there and only 27 Ibizan hounds then actually more people were killed by Beezers! Think about it a minute! And remember just because someone wrote down that the dogs invovled were pit bulls does NOT mean they were.

      • You know, I’ve already read about over a dozen supposed Pitbull attacks this year that turned out to be other breeds just in the area I live in–2 Cane Corses, 1 Great Dane, 2 Labrador Retrievers, 1 Border Collie, 1 Jack Russell Terrier, 2 Rottweilers, 1 German Shepherd, 1 German Shepherd/Lab mix, 1 Husky/Lab mix, 1 Lab/who knows what mix and 1 Beagle. There have been 2 minor Pitbull bites reported in that same time period, one that didn’t require any medical treatment at all, and one where one tooth pierced the skin and the woman freaked out over the dog potentially giving her rabies (it was up to date on its vaccination) so she went to the ER.
        All of these were law enforcement/media breed assignments when the bite reports were made. Are you seeing an issue here? I sure as Hell am.
