“Fighting dogs are not bred to be human aggressive,” said Flatt. “People mistake that all the time. They’re amazing for their resiliency. As much as they may sometimes hurt another animal, they want to please a human twice as much.”
Lawrence and the staff with animal control did say that the dogs didn’t have any scarring or outwards signs of being in a fighting ring, and they are very hopeful that all of the dogs can be rehabilitated.
