Many were trained to fight, and just as many were used as bait to start the fights. If it were true that a dog’s past determines whether or not it can become a loving part of a family, none of these dogs would ever have been deemed worthy of adoption. And yet after being rescued, they still wanted love and companionship and family. And with love, patience, and training, their wishes came true” (The Lazy Pit Bull) This quotation proves that even when the dog was treated horribly, they still give love and compassion to the people around them. Another example is, “These fighting dogs were bred and trained not to display behavioral signals of their intentions so that they would have an advantage in the ring.
Research was found to try to notify and persuade people into taking action in the spaying and neutering of their animals, eliminating animal abuse as well as dog fighting. Before getting into persuading readers; they should know why pit bull breeds get such a bad rap, as well as where the breed came from. Today’s pit bull is a descendant of the original English bull -baiting dog (Position). These dogs were bred to bite and hold bulls, bears, and other larger animals around the face and
There are some places where dog fighting is legal such as Fila Brasileiro, Dogo Argentino, the Tosa Inu and the Presa Canario and much more. Dog fighting was originally in England (instead of dogs they used bears and other animals) but was later outlawed because they “made” a breed of pit bulls (Staffordshire Bull Terrier). After a dogfight if/when the dog(s) get hurt the owners don 't treat any of the injuries. If the dog(s) die in a fight it is known as the biggest disgrace that could happen in a fight. There are many types of dogfighting, such as dog baiting.
Puppy mills are establishments that breed puppies for sale, typically on an intensive basis, and in conditions regarded as inhumane. Many anti-cruelty organizations, such as the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), define them as places where profit is given priority over the well being of the dogs. These breeding places are harsh to the dogs and never offer their love to them. Their industries are large and produce millions of dogs every year. They are legal in many states.
The owners of puppy mills will sell the puppies to Ppetsmart, Ppetco, and other breeders around the area. The people buying the puppies have no idea that they are sick and are in need of serious care of a veterinarian. They the breedersn sell the puppies at the local stores in town. The puppies will die from the sickness and possibly spread the disease to other animals in the
As a pet owner, animal lover, or as a concerned adult, it is time for us to save this helpless dogs and puppy as puppy mills are extremely inhumane and need to be stopped. I have done research and read articles from animal welfare organizations to understand more about this topic. I discovered that not everyone think that puppy mill is inhumane due to the matter of profit that they can earned. Hence, my job today is to persuade those who are having this thinking that puppy mills should be put
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who do nothing.” -Albert Einstein Animal abuse is a problem that has been going on for a while, but early in the last century; people have began to call it out. It wasn’t until 1936 that the first animal shelter had started by Caroline Earle White. However, others have taken an advantage of this, and just send stray animals to shelters, and it seems fine, right? Well, this is where the violence comes in:There are some shelters were there are “no-kill” policies where some shelters will euthanize the animals for no good reason. Some animal shelters have no-kill policies while others don’t.
The health and welfare of the animals is not a priority. Due to this, information I believe that puppy mills should not be allowed to continue what they have been doing to these forlorn dogs and puppies. Puppy mills do horrific things to dogs just for profit. An example of only one of the things a puppy mill does is they will breed a female dog at every opportunity with little recovery time between litters. Breeding females are often killed, when they are useless to the mill.
Tail Docking Short, stubby tails on dogs are cute, right? Well, looks are deceiving. Schnauzers, Yorkshire Terriers and Boxers are some of the most common breeds to get their tail docked for reasons such as agility, to prevent injuries and for dog shows. Tail docking isn’t as innocuous as it sounds, it is literally cutting a dog's tail with a pair of scissors. Tail docking should be illegal because it detracts from the dogs natural look, upsets the pet, and is just unnecessary.
Animal cruelty can be either deliberate abuse or simply the failure to assume guardianship of an animal, whether it is a pet or a wildlife. Most of the people think that can take full care of their pet in a theoretical way but in substantial life, many of the pet end up with abandonment, cruelty and neglect (Lin, n.d.). According to an investigation of government data and scholarly surveys of the prevalence of animal abuse, each year nearly 1 million animals were being abused or get killed by domestic violence. Due to the endlessly cruelty and violence, extinction of animal species might occur. This is not animals deserving as they also have feeling and rights to survive as human beings.
A common unknown fact about pit bulls are they are easy to train. They want to please their owners. Pitbulls are very sensitive to human feelings so they respond to virtual commands very well ("The Misunderstood Pit Bull!"). A pit bull named Booger saved his owner, Bernann McKinney, when another dog three times his size attacked her. She had to be in a wheelchair after the accident because of nerve damage, so Booger learned how to push her wheelchair.
Are laws against pit bulls fair? According to BSLcensus.com 's map, breed specific legislation (BSL) is a law that is currently being enforced in twenty- nine states of the United States. Breed specific legislation is a law that bans or restricts certain dog breeds that are deemed vicious, dangerous, or aggressive towards humans and other animals. The breed of dog that the law mainly concentrates on is the "pit bull". Many dog lovers, pit bull owners, or just dog owners in general feel that the pit bull should not be discriminated against just because of its history, looks, and a couple of undisciplined dogs.
The puppies, which are sold at designer breed prices, are abused, neglected, and, due to their lack of proper veterinary care, plagued with health problems. Some of the effects of improper breeding in puppy mills can include epilepsy, heart disease, lung disease, musculoskeletal disorders, endocrine disorders, blood disorders, deafness, eye problems, and respiratory problems later on in life as an adult. In fact, puppies will only develop these symptoms later on in life. As puppies, they will arrive at pet stores, or in homes, with Giardia (a parasite that causes diarrhea), Parvovirus (A highly contagious viral disease that is life threatening), distemper (A viral disease in dogs that causes a fever and coughing), upper respiratory infections, Pneumonia. Mange (parasitic mites on a dog’s skin), fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites, heartworm, and chronic diarrhea.
Puppy mills are more prone to having diseases that are present from birth. This includes diseases that can lead to heart conditions and other blood and respiratory disorders that the puppy can develope. Since the puppies leave their mother at such a young age, they often have problems with anxiety and also may have behavior problems throughout their lifetime. Since the dogs spend most of their life in the cages their hair and nails can grow onto the cage, which causes them to be stuck in one spot and not be able to move. The spend most of their days unintended and fights could break out, and injurges are untreated.
*Most of all, bad owners are being held responsible for the wrongs they do and teach these animals. * What are the cons of breed specific regulations? It stops families from having bully breeds as pets, people fear the dogs may turn on them or bite children. It stops people from adopting or rescuing a pit bull because they now believe they are not able to be rehabilitated. It promotes the stereotyping of certain dog breeds.
