Have you ever seen a dog, mainly a pitbull, on a heavy chain, with scars all over, and starved looking. If you have that dog was most likely a victim of dogfighting. Where they are forced to fight for their lives every second of every day.

To prevent dogfighting, the sentencing and fines need to be increased, have a dogfighting registry for the offenders, and implement animal cruelty officers.
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

Every 10 seconds, a dog is abused. Puppy mills are the main reason. They cause 4-5 million dogs to die each year. Dogs obviously can’t talk, which makes it hard for them to fight back and have their say. So why aren’t governments making them illegal? Because it makes them rich! The government gets millions of dollars off of puppy mills, so they don’t care if animals suffer. We all need to step up and fight back against puppy mills.
