Pit bulls are not mean and vicious. All dogs can be mean and vicious, not just pit bulls. Most people think that as soon as they see a pit bull it 's going to attack you for no reason. But really pit bulls are born very nice and efficient to people. Other people train dogs to fight not just pit bulls.
Breed-Specific Legislation (BSL) is a law that bans or restricts certain types of dogs based on their appearance, usually because they are perceived as “dangerous” breeds or types of dogs. BSL has targeted pit bulls for many years trying to ban them and will not address the fact that a dog of any breed can become dangerous when bred or trained to be aggressive. Some states have actually enacted BSL specifically to the owners of pit bulls in Denver (Pit). To this day, Denver still has the law, however, it continues to have significantly higher dog bite-related hospitalization rates than other counties (Pit). Ironic, right?
Like I said before, dogfighting is illegal in all 50 states but there are many places where it isn’t like Japan, Africa, Russia, and practiced widely in Latin America especially in Argentina and Peru. In America over 9,000 dogs die because of dogfights each year. A shocking case was when a famous football player, Michael Vick was caught dog fighting. He was born and raised in a place where dog fighting was the main sport so he was used to seeing it happen, but nobody thought he would actually participate in one. Michael Vick went to prison for 19 months.
Why Pitbull's are lovable pets "Look and adorable Pitbull!" Usually Pitbulls attack because they are protective of their owner, which makes them good pets in spite of the rumors about them, being banned for no reason, and misunderstood. You should give Pitbull's a contingent change while they are still here. To begin with, according to opposingviews.com, rumors have be spreading briskly about Pitbull's and they aren’t true. For example, a rumor about Pit bull's is that they have a "lock jaw," obviously people are just saying that because they think Pitbulls are formidable, violent, and vicious.
Aggressive Dog Breeds “Nationwide, the No. 1 reason why dog owners take their pet to a veterinary behaviorist is to manage aggressive behavior” (Dog, 2009). Many people think that there are dog breeds that are very aggressive. When these hackneyed violent dogs can be very sweet. Any dog can be aggressive and can become aggressive; but, that is no reason to kick them out.
Emotional appeal was the most used element by this author. Valich appealed to his readers emotions by using descriptive words that cause the readers to feel more empathetic to the situation. This type of appeal might have persuaded the audience to agree with their stance, even if they did not prior to reading this. In his piece, he uses a testimony from someone who was mauled by a Pit Bull and is strongly against them, but is the proud owner of two German Shepherds. This will cause the audience to turn more against Pit Bulls if even a large dog owner is against them.
Not all treatment seems to work. It just causes the patient, to be even angrier and forms episodes. Current treatment of the newer veterans helps with PTSD better than the aged treatments that were performed. In the video,“Wounded Warriors, Healing Hounds” the owner of a Veterans Best Friend trains dogs and uses them to help veterans with PTSD. These dogs use different tactics to tell their owner someone is approaching them so the owner does not lose it and have a violent episode that can hurt someone in
In many ways, Candy’s dog plays a significant role in foreshadowing Lennie’s death and the manner of the death itself. Certainly, George has taken responsibly of killing Lennie himself after Candy tells him, “I ought to of shot that dog myself, George. I shouldn’t ought to of let no stranger shoot my dog.” Candy and his dog lead a parallel relationship to that of George and Lennie. Alike Candy’s dog, Lennie depends wholly on George to take care of him. Vice versa, Candy alike George values his old dog not because of its usefulness but as a constant companion, someone who is devoted and loyal to him.
Abstract Human life is precious, then how about animals? Ending human life is considered as unethical and this is against the law. However, this does not apply to animals. Even though most families treat their animals as part of their family members, animal euthanasia is still a controversial issue nowadays. Millions of dogs are euthanized in each year and several methods are used by the veterinarian to put the animal to death.
The boys on the island needed to build shelters, watch fires, be rescued; but, they only want to eat, to hunt, to kill. The accuracy of this picture is proven in the study of the human species, specifically in the tendency to kill one another; “Researchers compiled data on lethal violence within 1,024 species of mammals… The analysis shows that deaths caused by other members of the same species is responsible for 0.3% of all deaths on average for all mammals, but the rate of lethal violence among Homo sapiens is 7 times higher” (Fields). Although a successful human civilization should not kill itself and deplete its own population, human beings have the highest tendency to kill each other. Such civilizations lose control and fall into poverty and sorrow. Today we have similar, larger examples of Ralph-like and Jack-like regions.
Are pit bulls dangerous dogs or are they just stereotyped? When comparing all breeds of dog, pit bulls are a good choice for a family dog in spite of the common misconception about their aggressive and unpredictable behavior. Pit bulls are known for a reputation of being vicious and aggressive, but really pit bulls aren’t any more or less dangerous than other breeds. These misconceptions are usually a result of people being uneducated about pit bulls. The news gives a lot of false information about pit bulls such as: pit bulls are unpredictable and are more likely to bite, they will attack sooner or later, and pit bulls have locking jaws.
“Pit bull is a name commonly used for dogs that are usually some mixture of bulldog and terrier.”(World book, 2016). Not all pit bulls are dangerous. Most of the pit bulls have a reputation for being aggressive and likely to attack strangers. Breeds called pit bulls include American pit bull terrier. Pit bulls are still used in wrongful war were people bet on the winners.
What is failed to be mentioned is how the history of the pit bull breed attracts the illegal act of dog fighting and the people involved in this act. This illegal activity eventually leads to animal abuse and neglect through the hands of unfit dog owners. Oftentimes the media focuses on the bad side of pit bulls without providing background history on these animals. They also fail to explain the extensive rehabilitation that these animals go through to one day be able to live in a loving home environment. Although this process may be rigorous but the people dedicated into helping these animals are making a huge difference in not only their reputation but their unseen future.
When examining the argument of whether BSL is fair to pit bulls, one must view both sides of the debate. The reason why the pit bull is thought of as such an aggressive dog, is that these dogs were bred specifically for their strength. "Bull and terrier breeds were created in early 19th-century England for the popular spectator sports of bull- and bear-baiting." (DogTime) Over the last forty years the pit bull has been a large debate because of the amount of fatal attacks that have been from these dogs. "In 2015, the combination of pit bulls and rottweilers contributed to 91% of all dog bite-related fatalities."
Why pitbulls should be allowed all through colorado I believe that colorado should let pitbulls all through colorado. I believe this because nowadays pit bulls are very misunderstood than dangerous.I mainly believe this because the reason for aggression is because of being a bad owner and sometimes abuse, because most of the time if you raise a dog to fight and be aggressive they will definitely be aggressive. And this is with any dog. Statistics show that a pitbull is one of the last dogs if you were going to approach them aggressively and non-aggressively. Some of the dogs that would almost immediately bite you would be the german pinscher, chihuahua, poodle and miniature poodle and that 's just some of the dogs with a higher aggression
