    Wounded female pit bull recovering - The Boston Globe


    I don't get why they didn't just euthanize her. They're going to end up euthanizing her in about 6 months anyway.

    Because they hope that it will prove unnecessary, that the quarantine will find she is free of problems, and that some caring soul from the area will adopt her.

    because it wouldn't make the papers, and the ensuing donations would not be forthcoming, IMO.

    i don't really care, but i can't think of any other reason to keep it alive.

    And then in 6 months, that caring soul's 2 year old will have his face torn off when he grabs the dog's tail...then the dog will be euthanized.

    Mayby not my friend. There is always a caring someone out there who will adopt. I myself have 4 dogs. One is a rescue dog, my BC Jake, I have two adopted from our local shelter, Murph and Zip and my German Shepher Andy who I purchased as a pup. It will all depend on her and her temprement. She could very well end up in a good home. More power to her.

    A lot will depend on her temprement but if its good she could very well be adopted by a caring person out there. If not then euthanazia will probably happen.

    Dog fighting is a vicious sport. I live down here in Florida and believe me its rampant down here. I've seen dogs that have been used for fighting both alive and dead and its not a good way for any animal to die. They will never cathch the "owners" and the" sport" will go on.

    I'm glad they are going to give this dog a chance. I friend of mine found an escaped pit bull bait dog running around wounded in traffic. She kept her and 9 years later the dog is still the best pet she could ever ask for. Great with kids, especially my friend's 3 year old.

    They will eventually put an end to dog fighting or at least successfully cut down on it. People who engage in that kind of animal torture are the scum of the earth.

    Methinks I must have hit a raw nerve in the other thread. I've come to notice that whenever I piss you off about something up pops an anti pit bull thread authored by you. :eusa_whistle:
