This super pretty little girl pit is running out of time! She is in Dallas North Carolina at a high kill shelter name Gatson Animal Control! They use the gas chamber to put their dogs down which is more cruel and inhumane then most people can imagine. She only has till the 23rd of Oct. and then they will end her sweet little life way to early. Here is the link to the petfinder page where she is at...
Go here to learn more and try to adopt her. Please save a life. This is a fawn colored little girl that is to pretty to waste.
There is also many more pits and pit mixes that are there that need homes fast, this shelter does not mess around and is high kill so do not wait, their life depends on you!

Seriously people is sports really that important that we are going to ignore what he did to these frigen innocent animals because he can throw a ball well? What are we telling everyone else in the world? Its not that big of a deal, if you get caught dog fighting and killing them after just say your sorry and all is forgotten. Is this justice?
Now I find out from the news that today that his jersey was the number 4 jersey to sell this year. I am shocked and blown away. What am I missing? I am still heartbroke over what he did and people are out there buying his stuff and supporting him. The level of cruelty which he was involved in does not just go away in a person. Sorry, but it doesn't. I never heard him apologize for the dogs that he killed in terrible ways once. I am just sad because I have so much love for this breed and we have people hurt it so much and everyone turns a blind eye to it because he is famous. Shame on every person that supports him!

If you are searching online for dog food then shopwiki would be great for you because they not only have tons of dog food but tons of information on it as well. You can read about dry vs. canned food, essential ingredients, treats, health news and on and on. You will find whatever you want to know so you can make the best decision for your pet. Its a great tool. Now your not just going to find food on this site, there is just about everything. In the pets section there is toys, leashes, houses, flea and tick meds, grooming and more. But like I was saying the neat thing is there is information on all of it and buying guides as well.
You can learn a lot from this site so I would recommend checking it out. Shop Wiki has been expanding over seas as well. You can find it in Germany, Netherlands and France. Its not just for dogs either, there is the same amount of products for other animals as well.

It appears that there is many breeders that say they sell American Pit Bull Terriers that are actually the Ambully. I have see these dogs go for 6,ooo dollars! The looks on the classic or well bred ones are impressive as they are beautiful dogs, but to many breeders just breed for size and nothing else. Some of them have legs that are bowed out so far that it looks like it hurts.
I for one really like the look of the well bred Ambully and have some pictures of ones that I think are wonderful looking.
As you can see these are impressive dogs! Many people cant tell the difference between them and an American Pit Bull Terrier. It can be tricky to the untrained eye. APBT's are smaller and dont have the massive heads like the Ambully.

This poignant poem was written by, Sue Gauthier.
It is harder to see the Sarcoptic mange mite from doing a skin scrapping. The mites move fast and sometimes you can do tons of scrapings and still not see anything. One common test that can be done is called the Pedal-Pinna Reflex Test. Most every dog that has mange with have mites on the Pinna which is also known as the ear flap. If you take the ear flap of the dog and gentle rub or scratch the underside of it a dog with mites will reflexively do a scratching motion with their back legs while you are doing this.
Ivermectin is an active ingredient in Heartguard and it has now been found to kill Sarcoptic mange mites if given in the correct dosage.
Some breeds can not take the drug Invermectin as they have a sensitivity to it and it can be fatal. Collie breeds and other similar breeds should never be given this medicine. Ask your vet.
Revolution is what I used when I had an Australian Shepherd and it worked great. It also protects again fleas, ticks, heart worms etc. I swear by this stuff!

I am looking for certain things that I want in my pup. Things like heavy bone structure, sound temperament, certain color etc. So running off to a good breeder sounds so easy because I can find a breeder that has dogs that have all the traits that I desire. I figure some where with in 100 miles of where you live you can find pretty much what ever you want. The problem I have is I feel obligated to get a shelter dog. I know all to well how many amazing animals there is waiting for some one to take them home in shelters. I love the feeling of saving a life. I might not be able to meet the parents of a shelter dog or know anything about its past. So I go back and forth because there is just to many great dogs that need homes but I also have been dreaming of a certain dog that I have wanted for a long time. I could get really lucky and find the shelter pit bull that has all the traits and characteristics I am looking for, but if I don't then how long do I wait? How many shelters do I check? I really just don't know what to do but I will keep you posted. Leave comments if you have any advice. Thanks

Why is there not laws for spaying or neutering? Why is there not stiffer punishments for back yard breeders and puppy mills? I don't get it! When you start searching the ads there is a never ending supply of sweet dogs out there that will never get a chance or a home, plus puppies getting put down due to over crowding in shelters. The fact is people are wasteful and selfish in general and don't take the time to even care about the sad truth regarding the over abundance of animals in the US. Please spay and neuter your pets and please don't breed your dogs! It cost others their lives!
I dont know about you but I think this is one stunning black dog right here!

With so many people losing there homes right now its no wonder that there is ad after ad of Pit Bull type dogs that need homes due to moving. This upsets me to know end because now I am in a situation that I have a real problem with. So once again thanks to all the people that have ruined this breed. I thought discrimination was wrong. I guess that doesn't apply to dogs though.

One thing that infuriates me to no end is the "FREE TO GOOD HOME" ads. Pit bulls are always on there and people many times give them away. What is wrong with you people that do that? Do you not know what people do with pit bulls? Have you been living under a rock? Putting free is bad enough for any breed because researchers will gobble them up like a kid in a candy store. But to put any type of pit bull on their warrants much more trouble! People will pose as nice families and then fight them or use them as bait dogs for other pits to practice on. You are this dog friend and family and this is what you do? Those people wait for ignorant people and they watch like hawks for the free ones. Once they get them god only knows what will happen to them.
Everyone likes money so why not charge 50$ bucks to help out the dog. Plus it shows how serious the person is if they are willing to pay, and most are willing to pay a measly 50$ for a dog they want to love. Don't be fooled woman pose on there as well as men. Your dog loves you and you owe it to him to use your head. We don't live in dream world of butterflies and cupcakes here people so please get with it!!!
Lowered head with flat ears
Low crouched body
Tail between legs
Showing teeth ( No growling though, this is also called smiling and is not the same as a dominant dogs does when showing teeth.)
Licking masters face and chin
Rolling on belly
Submissive peeing is the dog showing you "I submit to you". If you punish the dog by yelling or hitting the problem will get worse because the dog will try harder to submit to you. You have to ignore it and help build dogs confidence. Try these tips for building confidence.
Don't yell or hit ever
Don't walk at dog while staring in the eyes
Don't stand over dog
Get on their level
Stay calm and use a calm voice
Ignore submissive behavior by walking away as soon as they do it
If dog sticks to ground pick up and put on feet and bring out tail from legs
Don't comfort them while they are being submissive
Submissive urination will usually stop if you follow these rules. You just need to help build them up and give them confidence in themselves. Never ever rub their nose thier messes!

I strongly disagree with BSL. I think its an outrage! It breaks my heart to see many good owners having to move or get rid of there beloved pet. The bad owners will just ignore the laws anyways and continue to have these dogs. The good owners are the ones that feel it the most, because they love their pets and are forced to get rid of them or they can even be put down. This blows my mind and I cant tell you how angry this makes me. What do these families tell their kids that are so attached to the family dog?
The media plays a large role in BSL. Any dog with a big head and sort hair is called a pit bull and many times they are not pit bulls at all. Here is the thing, pit bull is NOT a breed of dog. Its a general term used to describe many breeds of dogs that have similar characteristics. The pit bull covers many breeds like the American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, Bulldogs, and in many cases the Presa Canario and Dogo Argentino because they are so similar looking. So if any one of these dogs hurts some one they are just called a pit bull and it appears that they are always on the news. Well when you group a bunch of breeds together then yes it will seem they are more dangerous because there is so many. If you grouped together the dogs in the Working group together the stats will be higher because you are dealing with many more breeds. See how that works? There has been many times when after the media reports a "pit bull" biting they find out it wasn't even a pit bull at all. Many crosses of different breeds can look like a pit bull. Boxer, Mastiff, Rhodesian Ridge back mixes can fool many people because they can look so close to a pit bull.
The bottom line is we need to fight BSL. Good owners should not have their rights taking away because of the bad deeds of other worthless people.
