Rehabilitation has become the best treatment for many of these once trained aggressive dogs. The ASPCA has been working extremely hard examining and treating rescued pit bulls. Many of these animals come from a long life of neglect and fighting. Most are believed to have been abused since 10 weeks old. This organization has came across many fighting raids and never once experienced a dog aggressive towards humans but mostly towards other animals. In many of these cases, dogs are rehabilitated to once again be able to live in a loving home environment. This process begins with teaching pit bulls to be non aggressive towards other animals. It can oftentimes be difficult to find homes for these dogs if they cannot lessen this type of aggression. The overall rehabilitation process is lengthy but being able to turn the tables for these animals is an amazing outcome (“Edgemon”).
Dogfighting has, sadly, become common practice. To start off, there are two types of dogfighting: street dogfighting and professional dogfighting. Street dogfighting is where, mainly rival gangs, put their dogs
Have you ever thought that if an Athlete broke the law and/or did jail time that he should be kicked off and banned from the team he played for but instead because he’s a big star athlete he gets away with some of the most horrific things just because he has money and your wondering if thats the the right thing to do for professional organizations?Professional Athletes should be banned from their sport they play if they commit a crime and/or do jail time because they could be setting a bad example, If they only get suspended they can still get paid and professional athletes feel like they are above the law and because they have money can get away with anything they want.
In the 1980’s, the targeted breed was the Rottweiler, and from the 1990’s to now, the Pitbull has been the targeted breed. A major factor that has influenced BSL, is the popularity of dog fighting. The history of the Pitbull explains why they are such a wanted breed for dog fighting. At their origin they were bred to participate in bull fighting or bear baiting. They were bred to make a very athletic dog that was also very intelligent. Although they do not have the strongest bite force of domesticated dogs, they also do not have the price tag like the german shepherd or rottweiler. Many breeders like to breed animals for money and do not care who the animals are raised by; this usually causes dogs to end up in the wrong hands. A great alternative to BSL is to make it illegal to breed dogs without proper licensing. Across the nation animal shelters are flooded with unwanted or homeless dogs, 74% of them being pitbulls. It is strongly believed, by some, that animals are not born mean they are made mean. Many people like to jump to the conclusion that Pitbulls and similar dogs, are naturally mean, but in reality they make the best family pets if treated
At the heart of a seemingly simple, unassuming novella lie political issues that occurred in Russia during and after the Russian Revolution in 1917. George Orwell’s allegorical ‘masterpiece’ as some would say, stems from his own opinions and detestation of the class divide. He shows that an egalitarian society is unachievable, when some characters that exercise power within Animal Farm use forms of both psychological warfare and physical threats in order to keep the ‘lesser’ animals under their control in order to maintain their society which supposedly follows the principles of Animalism; that ‘all animals are equal’.
In Maryland, Mrs. Allison cannot allege strict liability for damages incurred to her daughter by the Huffs’ boxer dog, Stella. To allege strict liability, an owner must take responsibility for the actions of their dog but only if the owner knew of the dog’s propensity to harm mankind. See Slack v. Villari, 476 A.2d 227, 232 (Md. Ct. Spec. App. 1984). The issue pertains to whether or not the Huffs knew about Stella’s potential to attack mankind. If Mr. and Mrs. Huff knew of Stella’s dangerous behavior, Mrs. Allison can allege for damages and successfully win in court. However, it is unlikely. Although Stella bit Danielle Allison, the evidence indicates that the Huffs had no prior knowledge to reasonably foresee Stella’s attack. Their knowledge
Many people know about the existence of puppy mills. However, they do not know the true reasons why many animal cruelty prevention organizations have started attacking the basis of puppy mills. Puppy mills are a commercial breeding business where dogs are mass produced. Which does not sound horrible until you find out about the filthy and unhealthy environment, these vulnerable puppies live in until they get shipped out to a local pet shop. The dogs bred in these puppy mills are typically damaged either physically or emotionally. The puppies produced in the puppy mills are prone to get viral or bacterial infections due to the unsanitary living quarters; normally just a small kennel for one to eight dogs. Also, the puppies run a high risk of
Have you ever been bit by a dog and thought it was mean? Come to find out, it is very possible it’s not mean at all. Many facts show that dogs bite in many different scenarios. It’s not that they are mean, it could be how they were raised, them feeling threatened, or even low tolerance. There are many statements that prove that the dogs should not be executed for biting someone when it could possibly be our fault as a owner.
“Everyone makes mistakes in life but that doesn’t mean they have to pay for them the rest of their life. Sometimes good people make bad choices, it doesn’t mean they are bad. It means they 're human.” (Lovethispic) Second chances mean an opportunity to start over and come clean again. Second chances may not sound pleasant, but sometimes it pays off. In my opinion, I believe everyone deserves a second chance. I take that back, I think people only deserve a second chance if they are willing to work towards it. Say for example, someone did something really bad to her best friend and then they just walk away from it. Then I would not want to give them a second chance because the person is not willing to work toward it, they’re just walking away

People raise bigger dogs to be aggressive because of their size and appearances. Any dog can be trained to be aggressive, although only power breeds such as the german shepherd, the rottweiler, and the pit bull are trained to be. They are more dangerous simply because their bites are more likely to be fatal than other smaller dogs such as the pomeranian who actually believe it or not, have the potential to kill someone. People raise bigger dogs to be aggressive because of their size and appearances. But this is not the fault of the dog, only the owner. If a dog was abused or participated in dangerous activities like illegal dog fighting where they have to defend themselves, of course they will be aggressive towards people

Pit Bulls have a way of biting, which is called “bating”; the Pit Bull will bite and will not release until the victim is dead. Pit Bulls were bred to kill dogs in dog fights.

Animals are not just objects used for your entertainment or for your sports but they are meant to either be wild or to be loved by a family who will not abuse them. You should not abuse them or abandoned them to fend for themselves when all they need is a little bit of love to make them happy. There are many sports that use particularly dogs and most of them are called dog fights which are used for your entertainment and they abuse the dogs to make them fear humans and other dogs. Dogs should not be afraid of other dogs but they should be able to cooperate with each other and have a family that will not abuse them and make the fight. These animals should be taken to animal shelters and taken away from the people who beat them and make them fight. If you ever see a dog walking on the side of the road and it looks like its malnurited then you should do it a favor and take
Violence is never the answer to everything. Consequently, violence will just cause the situations to worsen. A dog lives with a family for a long time. If a dog gets taken away, it is the same as losing another family member. This solution to dealing with biting dogs usually ends up with a devastated family. There is usually a better way to treat vicious dogs. Although, If dogs who have bitten people in the past, they are more likely to get worse if adopted by another family. But, they should at least have a place for them, just as long they are away from harming people. They don’t deserve to die. Lastly, they are just innocent dogs. Usually, if a dog bites, it is an act of self-defence, or the dog had a rough life. If they had been through a terrible lifestyle, they should be given care and make the dog feel safe again. Dogs should be treated differently with care and not violence.
