People that believe that pit bulls are aggressive dogs, you should look at a well-trained pit bull and an untrained dog and see that any dog can be aggressive without training and love. Any dog can be aggressive and mean by just how you raise the dog, if the dog is abused then the dog will be scared and if the dog is loved and cared for the dog is very loving and loyal. When dogs get sick or hurt they don 't like to be played with, they might even bite a person, they get mean because they are hurting and weak, so there instincts tells them to protect themselves. People think that pit bulls are a breed that will most likely bite people, but that 's not true, the American Veterinary Medical Association found that no dog is more dangerous than
My first piece of evidence is only 142 dogs have died since 1973 (Gerken). 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. Also each year 16,000 dogs killed each year in organized dog
In the 1980’s, the targeted breed was the Rottweiler, and from the 1990’s to now, the Pitbull has been the targeted breed. A major factor that has influenced BSL, is the popularity of dog fighting. The history of the Pitbull explains why they are such a wanted breed for dog fighting. At their origin they were bred to participate in bull fighting or bear baiting. They were bred to make a very athletic dog that was also very intelligent. Although they do not have the strongest bite force of domesticated dogs, they also do not have the price tag like the german shepherd or rottweiler. Many breeders like to breed animals for money and do not care who the animals are raised by; this usually causes dogs to end up in the wrong hands. A great alternative to BSL is to make it illegal to breed dogs without proper licensing. Across the nation animal shelters are flooded with unwanted or homeless dogs, 74% of them being pitbulls. It is strongly believed, by some, that animals are not born mean they are made mean. Many people like to jump to the conclusion that Pitbulls and similar dogs, are naturally mean, but in reality they make the best family pets if treated
However BSL is just a quick fix and the dangerous dogs can't be remedied quickly. In all reality BSL should be called breed discrimination laws. There are two types of BSL bans, and owner regulations. Bans make it illegal to house, harbor, import, train, or breed the specific dog breed that has been banned. Ownership regulations don't outright ban the breed but rather makes it extremely difficult to own a pit bull.There is a long list of regulations that need to be meet to obtain a dog such as liability insurance mandatory spay or neuter and muzzled in public. With BSL the government basically controls who can and cannot have a banned
Society becomes more advanced everyday, but no one knows what an advanced society is like. Fahrenheit 451 is a book taking place in 2026. Books are banned at this time and a fireman 's job is to destroy them. Guy Montag, a fireman, burns books every day for the government . One day, Montag meets Clarisse, who is a wise girl who loves books. After they meet Montag starts to think about his society and questions job. Fahrenheit 451 is a warning to society nowadays shown through technology, violence, and distractions.
Pit Bulls are not vicious animals. Why are pitbulls feared? These poor animals are beaten, sometimes they are beaten to death. These human beings are making these animals vicious and mean, it’s not the breed that makes them this way, it’s people, humankind destroying these poor animals lives, putting fear and danger in the minds. Dogs are also used as bait for fights, and used for fighting only. Why there is no stop to dog abuse? Why do people continue to beat these animals people ask, There is no answer, no law stating no animal abuse so no stopping it. These poor precious animals have a soul, and feelings to. If these animals continue to be treated this way they will continue to be aggressive towards people.
Dog fighting/fights can be dangerous. Dogfighting is a felony in 50 states.The dog fighting area can vary from a 14-20 foot square. Dog fights can take as little as 45 min but as long as one hour.

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.

“Whoosh”, the wind blew against the mushers face as he rushed toward the finish line . “ In March every year, dog sled teams and drivers from all over the world compete in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race”(Miller 223).The Iditarod is an 1,000 mile race, it starts in Anchorage, Alaska and the competition ends in Nome, Alaska. There are 12 checkpoints throughout the trail, you can choose to stop and rest or keep on going. The first place prize is 75,000 dollars and more. The Iditarod is a memorial for the great serum race, a relay of dog sled teams raced to Nome, Alaska to bring surum to stop a huge epidemic of diphtheria. The dogs and owners risked their lives to save the people of Nome, so every year we commemorate their courage by racing in the Iditarod. The Iditarod is a great race, the dogs love to run, people find it fun and it is a great memorial, but is it worth the trouble, dogs can get sick, die, some owners don’t care enough for their dogs and some
Power separation is one of the fundamental principal that the US Constitution is founded on. The functions of power separation technique are to maker sure that each arm of government has an active role in the creation, vetoing and reviewing of the statute. The structure of the legislative arm comprises of the senate and the house of representative that the framers of the constitution collectively referred to the Congress. The Congress is the primary body that makes the laws. The Constitution extensively explains its powers and roles. The Congress members introduce bills for review, approval and debates. The Congress committee may reject or approve the proposal at its initial introduction stage. If the president vetoes the bill, the legislature can try to override the veto (Brandt, 2011, pg. 20).
The supporting arguments for breed legislation include bite history, their use in illegal activities, the dog’s behavior and attack style, and the fact that breed specific bans are already in place in multiple U.S cities. Those who take the opposing side argue that the dog does not in fact have a locking jaw, they were once referred to as “nanny dogs” because of their gentle nature, all breeds of dog can bite, the owner is responsible for how the dog is raised and therefore influences its behavior, poor breeding and genetics are an important factor, and many rescue organizations adopt out many Pit Bulls who have no current issues or aggression that arises in the
These dogs have again and again proved themselves to be loving dogs, but society does not give them a chance. The people assume things about the Pit bull but they are wrong. The lock jaw theory of Pit bulls is false and has been tested by professionals (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). They are not Crocodiles. (Realpitbull.com, n.d.) The Pit bull is not the most leading dog of fatal attacks, The rottweiler is (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). On average, Pit bulls are blamed 2.48 fatal attacks a year (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). On average, 40 people drown in their tubs a year (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). You are more likely to drown in your bathtub then be killed by a Pit bull (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). 1.25 million dogs are killed in shelters every year (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). On average, 33% of the dogs in shelters are Pit bulls (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). 1 out of 600 hundred Pit bulls will be lucky enough to get adopted the rest will be euthanized (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). The reality is that Human kill more Pit bulls than the other way around (Realpitbull.com, n.d.). These dogs are thought to have the locking jaw and have a strongest bite in the world (petcomments.com, 2016). The Kangal — a breed of dog bred to protect protect sheep against wolves, jackals, and bears
Again, while it was not the most accurate or positive perception of a Pit Bull it was not dangerous either. Then, on New Year’s Day in 1986, communities started talking about banning Pit Bulls (Bastian, J). One reason behind this was that individuals started using Pit Bulls in dog fighting matches. (O’Connor, R). Also, individuals who were engaged in dangerous drug situations were training Pit Bulls to be their protector (O’Connor, R). After the late 1980’s, the perception of Pit Bulls has been negative ever since. However, issue of danger is not because of the dog’s nature, but because of the training and environment. The media also plays a role in sensationalizing Pit Bulls. Many Americans have the unfortunate habit of believing everything they read in magazines or see on T.V., instead of doing their own investigating. Because of that, many Americans are ignorant about Pit Bulls. Therefore, when there is a story on a local T.V. news station reporting a Pit Bull attack people associate the biting with the dog being vicious. What they fail to consider is why did the Pit Bull attack, was it
In 2012 more than 2500 dog attacks occurred due to Pit-bull terriers, their dangerous traits and behaviours can cause torment and grief to families, if they are violent. Could you imagine your children, your friend, your niece, your grandson being killed by a Pit-bull? It’s unimaginable, no-one should experience these incidents, but people still do. We must reduce the amount of “Pit-bull Terrors”, to erase the ongoing attacks on our families and our pets. These attacks cause Australians to pay Hospital Bills and Charges.
Animals are not just objects used for your entertainment or for your sports but they are meant to either be wild or to be loved by a family who will not abuse them. You should not abuse them or abandoned them to fend for themselves when all they need is a little bit of love to make them happy. There are many sports that use particularly dogs and most of them are called dog fights which are used for your entertainment and they abuse the dogs to make them fear humans and other dogs. 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. These animals should be taken to animal shelters and taken away from the people who beat them and make them fight. If you ever see a dog walking on the side of the road and it looks like its malnurited then you should do it a favor and take
Dogs that bite people are getting euthanized. Sure they shouldn’t be given to children if they are snapping at people, but think about the innocent lives taken away. Dogs who were saints, whom might have accidently bitten someone thinking that person might be hurting someone, are being taken away to be killed, leaving children devastated. There is an issue, stating whether the state should euthanize dogs for hurting people. It is not right to euthanize dogs because it is unfair due to equal rights, it is cruel to kill animals, and there are possibly better ways to treat dogs who bite people.
