Well...what to say?
I am very saddened by your opinions on Jessup, she is my hero so I am gonna have to cry in silence cause you all wouldn't understand the pain.
Jokes aside..after "knowing" the woman from three forums now I am not surprised of what happened.She is the kind of person you always give a second chance to because nobody can't say that she hasn't done something for the breed.Certainly more than the many tards I see blabbering on on line forums but they don't move a finger to actually do something.I myself believed that she had a lot to offer, training especially and knowledge on many aspects of the breed.
But she takes any chance and clean her rear with it.
I have heard enough from her own words to also think that she is less than an example for most pit bull owners.Too many yard fights, too many dogs, not able to properly care for all of them.Yet, for personal issues, she had a problem with someone (me actually) posting about my foster hurting my old little dog and make a post that apparently should make me feel ashamed :"keep what happened in your yard to yourself, the World is out to watch us".
Yet she has explained in details what happened to quite a few of her dogs, on a different forum years ago.About 10 years with these dogs and I have never lost one.I happened to want to say :"oh crap, look what happened today"...big deal.It is always personal with her, she won't forget when someone made her look like an idiot a while ago.But to be honest I did not have to work that hard for it, she makes it easy.
She came down to Villalobos and acted a bit unproperly.Chained 4 pit bulls to a couple fence poles and left her frigging patterdales loose on the property.The little dogs were all over the place causing all the Katrina dogs to go apeshit.Manners anyone?She was asked to put the dogs in the van.Then she decided to test one of the Katrina dogs.How? Opened the dog's kennel door and threw a ball between the rest of the kennels.Imagine the mess.Then she said :"well maybe this is not the right environment".No sh*t.Without making names even the folks there had some comments to make.
Anyway..I have always had a problem with the way she talks about euthanzing dogs.No respect, no heart..nothing.Colorful expressions that only bring anger.When you kill a dog without feeling a thing then it is time you find something else to do.Each dog deserve respect, no matter what she thinks of them.Dogs aren't responsible of what they do, unlike human beings.I might be wrong but this what I gathered from her own words.
I will also say that some of the opinions she has are valuable, too bad she lacks of social skills and when someone act like an idiot then everything is lost.I own stun guns, high voltage for protection and less voltage in case ofemergencies between the dogs.I have 4 pit bulls in the house now, I am very careful but the potential of a serious scrap is always there.A stun gun or baton is not a cattle prod.There is a huge difference in terms of pain and direct effect.Everyone is allowed to an opinion but please get informed before you think that having this device to maybe save your dog's life is so evil or only an idiot has them.
I got it for loose dogs in particular but I will use it if I am at risk to loose one of my dogs.Those of you who never broke two or more pit bulls in full fight drive don't know how quickly damage is done.It is scary and you get to a point where you don't even have breath to move but you know that you will have to find it or you loose one of your dogs.This experience will happen to everyone who handle many bulldogs in the years.A fight doesn't make anyone a bad owner, it goes with the territory, but 3 dogs killed made me think about serious management issues.
I have never used the device on my dogs but it is charged and ready if I ever need it.It is the last of my resources as I use other methods and a breaking stick.If nothing doesn't work I know where the gun is.
I find it weird that folks who use a shocking collar often sees a problem with it but I will leave it at that.
At the end..with such "breed ambassadors" who needs enemies???
Oh, those of you who wearhouse dogs and foster...clean your damn house!!!!
