Dog races is a terrible sport that requires dogs to run full speed around a track. Some owners take these races to seriously and too far. If a dog is to do poorly an owner may abuse the dog or even kill it. Dog racing needs to be stopped because it is hurting dogs. Since dog racing is at such high speeds, one wrong step and they fall.

A service dog is a type of assistance dog specifically trained to help people who have disabilities. These dogs have helped people for a very long time, but having service dog isn’t perfect. Imagine you are a dog trained to help a disabled person. Would it feel good or bad? Dogs are still dogs, no matter how much they are trained.
That is a very very low number because each year approximately 2.7 million animals are euthanized (For veterinarians, Iditarod is all about the sled dogs). Out of those 1.2 million of those are dogs. Some of those does are at kill shelters because they were abandoned. So it’s that also animal cruelty if a dog is healthy so why would you kill them.

Many are not aware of the problems that using a fake service dog can cause, but those who are disabled understand the issue. This has been a problem for many years, and is only getting worse. Fake service dogs reflect a bad image for the real ones, and “discriminate against or restrict access to disabled persons” (Colman). The recurring problem of these fake service dogs is well known to such a small percentage of the population, it is difficult to create a stable solution that will be effective for a long period of time.

All types of dogs are eligible to become services dogs, each potentially providing a different type of service. Service dog laws do not include dog breed restrictions or weight discrimination (“Service Dog Requirements”, 2017).

People who use Pit Bulls in these illegal dog fights torture and use them as bait. Even though individuals believe negatively about Pit Bulls, subsequently there are more positive effects, that are not taken into account because of their bad reputation, being misunderstood and not being considered an amazing companion.
They are unlikely to be adopted, unlikely to be loved. Forced to just sit and wait for a lifetime, a cough announcing their death, a whimper calling their descent into despair. This is the unfortunate truth for shelters; shelter animals did not choose this life, so why should we make them live it? There is a common saying a quote first voiced by Karen Davison that fits the situation beautifully, “Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever.” One does not even have to adopt to change the world for an animal, doing a simple task, as simple of one as taking a dog outside and walking it; that will make all the difference.

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.
