Pit bulls are put through abuse like innocent people get shot for no reason. The abuse of Pit bulls is so bad little children day after day are attacked because of people who abuse them.

The owners of these dogs happen to abuse,torture, and even use them as bait if they're not good fighters. Examples like they're not strong enough or not aggressive, and especially if they won’t kill the other dog. Dog fighting also happens to be a felony in 43 states in the U.S and a misdemeanor in 7 states. Which makes it illegal in all 50
It can be argued that along with cats, dogs were one of the first animals to become domesticated. For approximately 10,000 years humans and dogs have more than co-existed, they have developed a special bond unlike any other animal has developed with us. Today hundreds, if not thousands of breeds
Shelters put down pit bulls every day, thousands of them, because the media has deemed them vicious. Shelters believe that no one would want such a monster, so why should they keep them when that space could be used for a better dog? Animal violence in general is unacceptable, and we should not blame any animal more than another for protecting themselves.
Dogs are what their owners make of them, they are shere products of their environments and feed off of how their owners treat them. For example, in America pit bulls, over the years have been portrayed as harmful or aggressive. These views have lead to manying uncompassionate acts towards this lost breed. Such as, selling the dogs for drugs to people who could care less about them to forcing pitbulls in harmful dog fights. In America’s society today some often view pitbulls as just a way of breeding dogs. This means that they essentially are not taking part in what it actually means to have a pet. People are suppose to provide, feed, care, and love their dogs and in some cases that’s not their important objective. The underlying issue that
I grew up watching “Pit-Bulls and Parolees” on animal planet, watching and learning about dogs and the Pit Bull breed especially. After years of begging my parents to get a dog, the day finally came. We picked Jackson out from an online rescue center called “Saveabull”. My mom was interested
There are many animals who deal with abuse everyday, and that is not okay. If an animal is neglected or abused the pet will be taken away and the caretaker will be charged $1,500. Animals are very loyal, such as dogs, dogs are one of the most loyal animals you can own. When abused, they don’t know where they went wrong. They only know that you are mad at them. Animals, such as humans, shouldn’t be abused or neglected. Most animals who are abused or neglected are usually abused unintentionally, but the second most are abused on purpose. The people who abuse animals on purpose sometimes deal with mental illnesses, were abused as children, or have a hard time dealing with stress or anger. Animals are just like humans who have been abused. They are usually skittish and shy. People tend to see animals differently than humans, but they are the same in my eyes. For example, if I locked you in my basement, starved, and beat you, I’d be charged with attempted murder and kidnapping. Pets have the same rights as you to live freely, but people don’t see it. You are able to live on your own and take care of yourself, but they
In some cities, pit bulls are illegal to own, and this isn’t fair because Pit Bulls are a good breed of dog, as long as they are treated okay. For example, lets say you own a Husky; you won’t be told by the city that you can’t own that dog, but lets say you own a pit bull. It becomes the other way around. Depending on the city, you won’t be allowed to have your dog. Lets say someone raises a Dalmatian. If they abuse it, or make it fight, that dog will be vicious to anyone just like any other breed of dog would. If you raise the Dalmatian right, and don’t abuse it or make it fight, you will end up with a very loving and very friendly dog. It’s the same way for Pit bulls. Some people have made mistakes and in turn ruined it for pit
The pits that are raised in a fighting environment usually are the more aggressive dogs and the more likely to be euthanized because of their aggressive behavior. These fighting dogs are the reasons for most of the stereotypes directed towards the dog breeds. For example: “Pit bulls are the most aggressive dog breed” (17 Things...) Pit Bulls scored an 86.8% on the American Temperament Test or the ATT, which is a test that all dog breeds take in order to figure out the dog’s temper and aggression. The higher the score the better the dog, and the Pits just so happen to score second best, putting them above other common “nicer” household dogs like the Golden Retriever, the Beagle and the German Shepherd (Pisani). There are also many Pit Bulls being blamed for the actions of their owners, because of many of these actions it has caused many states to ban Pits. There are 17 states in the U.S. that have some type of pan against the breed (Pit Bull Bans (USA)...). Although these bans are places many criminals still continue to breed the dogs under ground and receive no

Introduction: The pitbull dog breed is a descendant of the bulldog breed, originating in England as they used these dogs as bullbait for sport (Medlin, 2006). It was when England outlawed the sport of matching bulls and dogs for entertainment that smaller dogs began to be bred to fight each
People are adopting pit bulls from Craigslist and Facebook to have them put down or dropped off at a kill shelter because they are trying to eliminate the breed. They are doing this since they believe pit bulls are dangerous naturally, but all dogs have the potential to be dangerous and attack humans, not just pit bulls. How a dog acts depends on how it was treated or trained by the owner, not the breed they are. Pit bulls have a poor reputation which is a result of what people train them for, dog fights. So rather than trying to eliminate the breed, why not deal with the owners of violent pit bulls? The dogs are not to blame, so they shouldn’t be punished for the actions of their owners since there is no such thing as a bad dog, just a bad
It is hard to pinpoint exactly when we lost our humanity. Perhaps it was during the Canine Wars or even long before that. The roads were paved thin with an eerie feeling of death, haunting every living corner of our hopeless future. The year of near-extinction, six decades ago, destroyed
All animals are affected by animal cruelty, even if the animal does not experience the cruelty on a personal level. Although the ones that experience the cruelty have greater issues after the abuse. Other animals like pit bulls getting a bad name by their owners being negligent. Pit bulls can be aggressive; they do have an aggressive nature about them. This is only when they are provoked, but these dogs are not dangerous. If the dog is taught right than the aggression is non-existent. If the owner is negligent to the animal and abuses the dog, it often brings out the more mean side of the dog. The
Dog Abuse is when a dog is beaten physically or mentally abused by verbal communication. “98% of Americans consider pets to be companions and members of the family” (American Humane Society 1).This means most pets aren 't just considered animals they actually think of them as part of the family. Dogs are the most populated pet in the United States. Dog abuse happens for many different reasons a dog may be kicked in the head from barking too much. If a dog is being disobedient they may be smacked or hit. Some dog owners may lock their dog up for extremly long periods of time for peeing in the house or making a mess. Dog abuse can be traced back literally to ancient times, the British used dogs for entertainment and they fought wild boars and bulls. Along with the actual fighting within the pit was the harsh conditions they were kept in while waiting to enter the pit to fight animals that were two or three times their size, and sometimes even bigger. It then became to spread across Europe and then on from there. There was a very slim chance that the dog would come out alive in those fights and when they did it was primarily by luck.
Animal Cruelty: Dog Fighting Sherry LaFace COM 220: Research Writing January 23, 2010 Erin Fagan Dog fighting is a very cruel thing, and it is happening right under our noses. It is illegal to fight a dog in all fifty states. By being an observer at a dog fight, it is against the law in forty-seven states. So why do people continue this cruel practice?

Even though fighting dogs is making money, it is cruel since pain is inflicted on the dogs; the ASPCA and the Humane Society are trying to prevent this with proper training.
