Okay y’all. I know I don’t have many followers, but this needs to get spread around. I saw this on Instagram and my heart completely sank. This beautiful four month old pit bull will be KILLED in a Brooklyn shelter on sept. 14th if she isn’t found a home or a no kill shelter. If you or someone you know would like to adopt her or can find a safe place for her, please contact the Instagram profile on this picture. Please help save this poor pup.

Signal boost!!!

Pit bull-type dogs

Most dogs that are referred to as pit bulls by society are not actually American pit bull terriers or even American Staffordshire terriers
The majority that I have seen are some kind of mixed breed. American bull dogs, boxer mixes, mastiffs, and many other bully type dogs are called pit bulls. It can be difficult to identify an actual pit bull terrier, which is another reason BSL is bull shit.

Niggas be like ”He don’t bite” 

"He still a baby"

"he won’t hurt you, just pet him"

That’s not a dog it’s a lion o_o

I’ve had dogs bound up to me like that and all they did was give me a hug and lick my face.
Hell I had a wolf (genuinely, it was at a wolf sanctuary) do this to me one time.

Plus, look at how sturdy that leash is, and the grip he has on it. He’s making sure the dog doesn’t jump on anyone. Dude’s just got a big dog.

That dog’s tail is wagging a mile a minute. It’s not being aggressive, it’s just getting a little over excited.
That being said, it can be extremely intimidating to have such a large animal jump at you like that even if it is just trying to say hello.
This kid understands that and has a very good hold on his dog. He isn’t alarmed or surprised by the dog’s actions. The dog isn’t acting out of the ordinary. It’s just excited.

Here’s the video, if anyone speaks French that’d be awesome because it can give us some context. I can’t tell if that sound is growling, trouble breathing, or something else entirely? 

Sounds like trouble breathing because of the dog pulling on the leash and therefore collar. With a huge dog like that, I hope the dog is very well-trained and socialized. He just looks excited but really, really needs to learn to not pull on the leash like that!

See it annoys me because I’ve seen small dogs being flat out aggressive and/or snap at people/other dogs and people will just laugh. I’ve even seen some parents encourage their kids to go see a dog that is clearly uncomfortable just because it’s little. Then you have a big dog showing eagerness or excitability and people immediately jump to “that dog is aggressive/out of control.” Ignorance is ignorance no matter what size. Immediately assuming all big dogs are aggressive is just as bad as assuming all small dogs are friendly.

I’m around anywhere from 1-80 dogs on a daily basis.  Honestly if he wa being aggressive it wouldn’t have been so easy to pull him back.  Just because the dog is large and strong doesn’t make him dangerous.
