RIP Buckskin pit boy

Postby msvette2u » February 26th, 2007, 6:34 pm

He was only about 5 mos. w/a mix of puppy teeth and adult teeth. He'd been picked up as a stray.
I'm sorry - I already know everyone is full to the brim and so am I, so we chose to put this guy down, we are in the middle of BSL country.
I kinda hate to even post this but I hope that the people who want to breed their pit bulls can realize that even babies get PTS in shelters.

He was...that's the point. There's just not enough responsible people out there and all the rescues are full up to their necks :cry: I'm so frustrated. And there's another waiting, I didn't put him down today. He's a rottie X...I did email some folks to see but I am not holding my breath. We (at our house) are full and have 2 waiting to come in on Wednesday already...

terrible... but a fact of life none the less i tears me up in side to here all these stories but im using as a motivation to act to step up and do something ... how does one fund a no kill rescue where there isnt one is there gov grants ?is it all donation?? i am working on purchesing a piece of land for just such a place but my financiall situation hasnt alowed and im sick of just standing on the sidelines while good dogs..and pups get put down i just keep saying theres power in numbers and together we can make that kind of thing happen ...

Before we talk "no kill" we need to talk spay/neuter. There's just not enough homes out there for all the dogs being born daily.

No kill rescues are NOT a good idea. Why make a dog sit for months or years in a kennel waiting for a home that never appears? Is that any life for a dog? There are too many dogs sitting in shelters that are worthy of good homes, what about dogs with bad temperments, do we keep them alive too?


Run free sweet boy. :cry:

The fact is that no-kill shelters are not the key. Spay/neuter is the key.
There's no where to put them all and it would be warehousing. I'm not into that either.

First, you really need to grow some thicker skin!! I am speaking of fact, plain, hard fact. Hostility? Yeah, perhaps, but not towards you. Bad temperment cannot be loved & cuddled away. Sometimes it can be controlled but not always. Bad BEHAVIOUR can be trained away, bad tempermetn....good luck with that. You REALLY need to learn about dog behaviour..and NOT just on tv. AND you might want to take a look at the shelter situation here in this country while you are at it. And you might want to learn about THIS breed as well. You have a LOT to learn about the reality of this breed and the state it is in.

Yes - I agree- "no kill" is a knee-jerk reaction, and a bandaid on a bleeding artery. You can't kiss that boo-boo away. No kill shelters would not TAKE dogs like this - they routinely turn people away and then people resort to dumping their pet at a kill shelter or alongside a road somewhere. That's probably where this one was found.

And if you are serious about your rescue, I wish you luck with it. But PLEASE, be realialistic and do your research.

the shelter i got saydee from is "no-kill". i was told the ONLY time they euth is when the dogs fail temperament tests, + looking at that place, i TRULY believe it! all but 7 out of a lil over 300 dogs are pit bulls. they ran out of room to the point where they have dogs in the employee lunch room (where saydee + i had our "meet + greet"), in the bathrooms, closets, locker rooms, etc.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body; but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

And you can do a search on our site for Cesar -- he's been discussed a few times. :)
