Have you met a human lately?

Because dogs, especially Pit Bull dogs need help. The last things they need are more myths, more misrepresentations and more people messing them up.

I believe this to be true for all dogs, but Pit Bulls have it the worst.

Nothing in nature is more forgiving than a dog. Not the ground we stand on or the air we breathe is as forgiving as a dog, I would wager that not even the god you believe in or the people you love are as forgiving as a dog.

The ability to be kind and just rests within every dog, as it does within every person.

All living creatures are subject to their environment, humans are free to make many choices about the outcome of how we feel, and dogs are at our mercy from conception all the way till they die.

We have intellectual morality, dogs do not, and if it turns out that they do. Iíd say again it is far more just morality than ours.

Dogs are looking for safety. However people are looking for more than safety, humans have a long list of motivators, desires and intellectual calculations that drive their behavior, and itís not all pure like the dogs intentions. I contend that most dogsí agendas are to be safe.

220 times a year some dog somewhere just canít handle life anymore and they do serious damage, maybe even cause death. Itís never funny and itís always sad.

This is out of 74 Million dogs of all breeds and 300 million humans. It is estimated there are about 3 million Pit Bull type dogs, where is the dangerous epidemic in dog bites?

That is what everyone is up in arms about? I would say the dogs have amazing numbers despite their odds of survival and despite how much humans mess with them from breeding to training, not to mention the lables and judgments we put on them.

I would say dogs are holding it together better than people are. 6 times a day a parent kills a child. 2000 kids a year are killed by mom &/or dad.

Look into any cities homicide rate and youíll see dogs are a safer bet every time.

It is not dogs that are a problem, it is people. People and beliefs, people and emotions: People and their lack of vision, people and their cruelty and greed.

Dogs are evil? Dogs are dangerous? We need to ban certain breeds or tax their innocent owners? Really, this is the solution?

I would argue that these ideas have already failed over the past 20 odd years so why should we continue them any further? Fear never solved anything.

Have you met a human lately? Have you met a dog lately? Who would you trust?

    animalagents@animalagents.org This is me, (new here, soon to be residing in CC) w/the first Pit I've ever worked with--it's not the breed anyway, it's people--and I miss her so much, smartest dog of all and I have a spooky too-smart cattle dog who thinks he's a coyote.

    Howdy, btw.

    I think we just need to be responsible pet owners. Most people do not let their pets make unwanted litters. To s/n all the dogs, sadly will not stop the population of dogs that die in shelters.
