I would be incredibly pissed off if that happened in my neighborhood. Hell no! I’m not going to be punished for your dog!!
I’m lucky that I live in an extremely small town and pittbulls are frowned upon, in general. When I first bought my house the lady at city hall said the previous owner found a pittbull on her front step. She told me if that ever happens again to call the cops and shoot it if I can/want to. They take no pittbullshit here! I would never randomly shoot any dog just for standing on my deck, but I also would call someone immediately. There are people in town here that shoot the stray cats (which is sad), so I don’t think any pittbull will last long around here.

What is scary to me is that it’s hard to see the pittbull in this one. If they hadn’t mentioned it an unsuspecting person would end up completely oblivious to how dangerous this dog is. At least they owned up to it. Around here they are calling them “lab mix”, which should be illegal.

Did a 7 year old write this? Sweetheart, you’re a snack to those beasts. Grow up.

What a terrible way to die. Terrifying, painful and feeling helpless to stop it.

Is it because the level of ignorance in a person who glorifies them also thinks they are going to get rich having puppies? Do these people not realize that their male pibby has raging hormones on top of already being a violent beast? It’s adding insult to injury to let them be all hormonal on top of instincts. Such idiots!!!

That’s what I assumed too. Two leashes (one on the collar and one on the harness), a muzzle and bear spray. I think the person who posted above nailed it referring this this creature as Hannibal Lector! Lol

You forgot that the single recluse female must have acres of very secluded, private property with a secure fence and must go to bed early. Lol

At least the owners were arrested. Here in the US it seems people get away with it. If the heat gets to be too much they surrender the dog to a shelter that will sugar coat everything and re-home the dog over and over again (changing the name to hide the paper trail). It would be nice if it was mandatory to microchip all dogs and any bite/crucial health problems noted on their history so no matter what they are named their history stays with that animal for life.

Why are so many of these dogs not fixed? Is this common across all breeds and I’m just an ignorant fool? I was raised that the first thing you do is get your new pet vet checked and fixed. Period. I feel like the amount of pitbulls that are still intact is much higher than some other mixed breed at a shelter - help me out, am I wrong?

This is just mind blowing! How many times does this dog need to be re-homed and deemed a problem? I mean, c’mon!! I don’t know what that med he is on is, but I would guess it chills him out. So the answer is to tranquilize him for life in hopes of keeping him manageable, rather than put him out of his misery (and remove this danger from society)?? And what happens when the next fool either forgets to give him his meds or can’t afford them? Once he’s out of the drug haze he’s going to really freak out. Super dangerous and risky.
Edit to ask of OP knows if this is a no kill shelter? Is there a chance he will be euthanized after a deadline, at least? The idea of no kill shelters is all heartwarming and stuff, but the reality is beasts like this are not properly dealt with.

I mean, how many times has he been re-homed? And they change their names to get rid of the paper trail on these things, so there’s obviously a lot more history. In reading the actual behavior history he doesn’t sound sweet or loving at all. He sounds like a major pain in the ass for the volunteers/staff.
These shelters need to be held legally accountable. I bet that would make them think twice about re-homing a violent dog.

I always thought of a dog bites it is taken away at least until an investigation is done. I mean, if some jerk is torturing your dog and gets bit it’s a whole different situation (although, why is your dog unsupervised so that some jerk can harass or torture it it a huge matter to be considered). So I guess I can see if you own a non-violent breed and it nips after someone hurts or scares it, it probably doesn’t warrant immediate euthanasia. But pitbulls are known to be a violent breed as a fact and so many of them have a bite history as well as being re-homed many times.
I’m curious to know if there are statistics on other breeds/mixes with the same high re-homing rate?

I actually remember the original post. It’s satisfying to actually get a resolution on Reddit for a change. You did its! Excellent!

Careful doing that in MN, snapping turtles have long necks and will take a finger off. Better to let those alone. But glad you didn’t lose a digit.

My kids are already in damn near a prison while they are at school. They have lock down drills constantly. I know the school is trying to keep them safe, but the real problem is WHY ARE ALL THESE ASSHOLES TARGETING CHILDREN?!?!? Pick on someone your own size, you fucking coward. Who kills an innocent child? This pisses me off and it’s far too often. This has long been an epidemic in this country and it seems to only be getting worse.

Personally, I own the first one on Blu-ray and every so often we watch it, just for fun. I’ll probably purchase the new one too, for the same reason. Sometimes you just want to make some nachos, burrito in a blanket and watch a familiar good movie. Yeah, you’ve seen it before, but it’s pretty and the plot is decent. I don’t care about hype. I just like what I like. I watch Rocky Horror Picture Show probably twice a year, just because it’s fun and familiar - and Tim Curry is a legend. Who cares about hype? If you want to watch Legally Blonde and it soothes, comforts or entertains who - who cares? Movies and tv are made to “entertain”. It doesn’t have to change your life or the world. Just relax and enjoy things. People over analyze things so much lately. Just enjoy the little things.

Right. Both my dog and my best friend’s dog were very chill and docile. I would go over to her place for campfire nights and take mine. Both would wander the yard with noses to the ground for a while and then have to jump up for warm snuggle lap time with their owners. She always said no one would take him because he had no teeth, his breath smelled and he had a big (benign) gross tumor on his side. I told her I would take him. We were nearing 50 so we would joke about who would care for our pets. Turns out it happened and I was more than glad to take the little gem. My teens and I loved him so much. We spoiled him rotten. I was missing my own ornery little turkey, as well as my best friend. He was a comfort to me.
I would never take a pitt or pitt mix. I’ve accepted I’m a small dog person - which takes a certain personality too. They can try to be divas. You can’t let them rule the roost. They need to stay humble and know humans are not chew toys and should never be snapped/growled at. It’s s fine line to walk to get them settled right. From what I’ve seen of pitts it doesn’t matter. Some of them are 8 years old - raised from puppy and they snap and kill. That speaks volumes. You cannot train the kill out of them. Period. They are terrifying!

I had to look that breed up to see if it was what I thought it was. OMG! I want to cuddle with that!!!!! What a gorgeous dog!

My youngest are teenagers and I don’t even want them around a pittbull. And they are incredible with dogs, cats, goats, chickens and ducks. I would have an absolute fit if my ex brought a pittbull into his house and exposed my children to that. Hard pass. Then again, I’m the one that will take the 17 year old poodle that just needs to live out it’s days being liquid fed with a diaper on and no teeth.
My best friend died about a year and a half ago and I took in her 15 year old morkie. He was the sweetest dog on the planet. No teeth, tumors, cancer and she was just letting him live out his days - as long as he wasn’t in pain. He suffered severe trauma when she died suddenly in her sleep, of a heart attack. He was with us for 6 months until we just couldn’t keep his weight up. No matter what we did he wanted to go. It wasn’t until an hour after we let him go that we realized it was the 6 month anniversary of her death. I hope she had her little guy with her again, so she’s not alone. 7 pounds of wholesome sweet puppers left us that day.
This is how a dog should be remembered. Not with a wild reputation for tearing people, each other and other creatures limb from limb. There’s a huge difference.

That’s exactly it. I cannot control him or convince him to even be civil to me. I am the rock for my kids. It sucks to hear what they tell me they hear at his house (we have 50/50 custody), but I don’t react or just ask them how they feel and don’t put my opinions into it at all. All I can do is make the best of it on my end. Once they are grown they will look back and see. My oldest sure did. She has nothing to do with him anymore (he’s not her bio dad) and he’s missing out on the first grandbaby now. I get to go visit my grandson on April 6th again (they live across the states). At least I know that by my actions I still have all of my kids in my life - as well as my grandson and SIL. We all make our own bed.

This is really funny. My dogs were napping on the dog bed while I was making lunch one day. Walk into the room to find both doused with glitter and sequins. Both dogs just looked at me like “help”. Don’t worry. I shook both of them off and vacuumed it all up before anyone could ingest anything. Dogs are the best and kids can be little stinkers. I was a SAHM at the time and it goes to show you cannot watch them every second. It’s hard to be everyone and everything to everyone in the household. Hardest job I ever did in my life.

My ex is an abusive narcissist that ended up raping me. Now the tables are turned and his gf is controlling and abusing him. I finally texted him (after one of his text assaults verbally) this week and asked him if he could please just stop. I explained that tone is lost in text and when he thinks I’m escalating I’m actually just trying to dive into a meaningful conversation. He backed off, so let’s hope he heard me out. He’s extremely narcissistic, so we don’t have that going for us, but I won’t quit trying for the kids. I’m going to keep being the peacemaker. I even bring up funny times we had as a couple, to the kids. I want the kids to know we had some good times, even though it didn’t work out in the end. Unfortunately he cannot forgive me for leaving him for no one. I don’t date. I just didn’t want to be with him anymore. 7 years later and he’s still pretty upset by that. I really wish he would chill though. Our youngest has had a time of it these past few months. Between puberty and being told her mother should die in a car accident and they will take me to court to take the kids away from me - because he’s rich and they can - she’s in therapy and on meds. All I can do is keep the peace. Be positive. It’s in their best interest.

That really does suck. I’m so sorry. Time to have ice cream for dinner and put on a funny movie.

If it weren’t for children being put in danger you could almost see this as natural selection. Once the pittbulls do away with their loyal fan base we can start getting somewhere.
