Breed Ambassador: Bastardized

Breed Ambassador: Bastardized
The idea sounded like a good one. In an effort to make some sense of the slaughter of pit bull after pit bull in shelters across the country and develop pit bull adoption programs where there were none, Breed Ambassador programs were created to showcase the best of the best. Breed Ambassadors would shatter...

So Westminster Got Me To Thinking …

So Westminster Got Me To Thinking …
I have a love hate relationship with dog breeds. My favorite breed is the mutt. My own dogs are (three out of four) mutts and even the one who ‘purebred’ is a really poor ‘example’ of the breed if we are talking standards rather than sparkling personality. I get annoyed when people...

HB 925 - Your dog at Risk. Yes, even yours.

HB 925 - Your dog at Risk. Yes, even yours.
Originally published in the Houston Examiner. Well, it looks like yet another Texas Representative, Harold Dutton (from Harris County, no less!) has managed to publicly show his jackass.   Although I’m sure House Bill 925 is well-meaning, it has the ugly potential to be the first step off a very slippery...

How Pit Bulls smashed the myths and strengthened my belief in No Kill
I don’t own a pit bull.  My dogs of choice are independent, freaky, northern breeds and dogs with pointy ears and long muzzles.  Even to this day, and probably forever more, my own dogs are (for the most part) pointy eared and full of fur.  They shed fur that swirls on our living room floor...

Pit Bulls and Shelters: A Second Look

Pit Bulls and Shelters: A Second Look
If you’re involved with Pit Bulls or rescue work, you know that you spend a LOT of time battling misconceptions, e.g. “No, Pit Bulls don’t ’suddenly turn’ and no, their jaws don’t lock and no, dogs in rescue are not all there because they have serious behavioral problems...

Do Pit Bulls Get a Bad Rap?

Originally posted July 9, 2008 on TNKN contributor Nathan Winograd’s No Kill Blog Do Pit Bulls get a bad rap? The question is, of course, rhetorical. In a recent Seattle case, a local television news story ran the headline: “School Plumbers Save Girl From Pit Bull Attack.” The story opened...
