I saw a video on Facebook today about a guy in California who lost his dog to the city because it got loose and killed the neighbors cat in the cat’s yard. The dog then died in their custody from a heat stroke after being left for hours in a hot truck. The guy is upset as any dog owner would be. You can read about it here: justice for Cuda.
I am torn over the pit bull issue because I know pit owners who have great dogs. But I have also come face-to-face with aggressive pits and it is terrifying.
We have a neighbor who owns a pit who lunges even when on the leash. Now most people will argue that it’s the owner who makes the dog. And I agree. But the problem I have is trusting a dog who has the power in one bite to snap my arm or rip an animal to shreds.
I have had to stand my ground with an aggressive pit and I almost peed my pants I was so scared.
