“When someone says the name “Pit Bull”, most people either think that of a vicious dog or aware that others think of them that way”.(“The Truth behind the Pit Bull Terrier.”) Most people think that since Pit Bulls have a strong, fierce appearance they are aggressive. Seeing people be afraid of a Pit Bull is upsetting, they 're missing out on so much. There is no other breed that stirs up so much emotion. If you adopt a Pit Bull from a shelter and they are aggressive, then they were most likely abused or abandoned by their past owner.
Debunking pit bull 's monster-like image When someone saw a pit bull, the initial reaction will surely include the sheer fear of being ravished and bitten. With their raucous look and the influences shown and injected to us by mass media, these canine breeds often are the subject of criticism. Let 's all admit the fact that there 's something in pit bulls that terrified us, even on the context of just visualizing them, and much as there are lots of people who contest the bad light shone on them, we just cannot shake the scare.

Imagine if your beloved pet was given such a bad rep, that your breed of your pet was banned in certain places in the world such as the UK, Germany, Ireland and almost thirty plus other countries. Your pet had always been the one of the sweetest pets that you’ve ever known, yet, a lot of people are against them being in their public area. Catherine Hedges, founder of the non-profit “Don’t Bully My Breed” organization, dedicated to rescuing pit bulls, says, “I’ve always wanted to help the "underdog" and they are a super personable, highly friendly, affectionate and misunderstood breed.” She says that her pit bulls are loving, loyal, and silly dogs. If that is the truth, then why have pit bulls been giving such a bad reputation?
Satire is used by many famous writers to create humor and to criticize people’s unwise, and senseless actions. As George Orwell once said, "All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." (Orwell, 1945). People will always be greedy and think they are smarter than others but this is untrue. The one who thinks he is smarter or better than the other will always end up losing in life.
Candy is one of these examples. Candy’s dog ‘stinks to beat hell’ and ‘walks lamely with mild, half-blind eyes’. Carlson believes that this dog ‘can’t eat, can’t see, can’t even walk without hurtin’, and attempts to kill the dog even when Candy is reluctant to do so. Clearly, Candy is not as powerful as the elite members of the American society. The dog is a clear example of Candy’s powerlessness.
In some instances the person is asked to do something for others. But the person would sometimes realize that a bad consequence in his side could happen if he follows the favor of the other person. This is where the person can say no without any if's or but's, while still reasoning out why he would commit the act of selfishness. The person would have to be assured that the other people would completely understand his decisions and reasons behind doing the selfish act. Making reasons for doing a selfish act is usually done in order to maintain healthy relationships with others despite having had done the act of selfishness already.
However, the relationships that Spade has with all of the other characters are very difficult to define. Spade is a loner, so he mistrusts almost everyone. Another key motivating factor that drives the majority of the characters is old fashioned greed. The object of everyones cupidity is the rare Maltese Falcon. This priceless, black bird is in the rapacious eyes of most of the characters, and they are willing to go great lengths to obtain it, even if it means leaving behind a few dead bodies along the way.
But in recent years they have been unfairly villainized for being overly dangerous and aggressive. While Pit Bulls do indeed possess a feisty and spirited character, the history of the breed reveals a much more complex tapestry of personality and temperament. When did Pit bulls start to be villainized? People started using the dogs for their own selfish means without thought for what a dog was actually for. Pit bulls were used to guard things like houses, junkyards or illegal items and activities.

Even though Pit bulls are great dogs, some people think that pit bulls can be dangerous to the people around them. One afternoon Guy Clairoux was walking his son home from school when a pit bull jumped over the fence from his yard and started to harm the little boy. A few more dogs came and also showed aggressive behavior. Tho, pit bulls can be dangerous if not trained properly (just like any other breed of dog) they only become aggressive when they are at a last resort and feel threatened. Pit bulls have a high pain tolerance level, making it possible for them to fight until the point of exhaustion.
“The breed isn’t the problem, the owner is. 80 percent of the hundreds of Pit bulls seized and killed every year by animal control in Prince George’s County, MD, because of a dog breed- specific ban are ‘nice, family dogs’, 84 percent of dogs involved in fatal attacks were neglected or abused, and 86 percent of fatal dog attacks involve unneutered male dogs” stated by the Reeves Law Group. (Reeves Law Group. “The Pit Bull’s Bad Rap: Dispelling Common Myths About America’s Most Feared Dog Breed”) Although many people believe Pit bulls are dangerous they are no more dangerous than any other dog breed; they are stereotyped, negatively portrayed in the media, and most of their aggression stems from their training.
