    Default Send In The Dogs- Last Nights Story...

    For those that don't know about it/didn't watch it, its a show following the daily jobs of police dogs and their handlers(a lot of Labs, German Shepherds and Spaniels).
    Anyway, last night a lady had to go an check out a Pit Bull(being completely illegal and banned in the UK as far as im aware) while discribeing(sp?) them in the worst way possbile. 'They are not pets, they are fighting dogs', showed some footage of them fighting etc. etc. She got there it was indeed an absoluetly stunning(and intact) Pit Bull, tied up and barking.
    She did the whole 'woah!' scared thing, all the while the dogs tail wagging madly. After a while she ended up cuddling up to it and it being the loveliest dog. Trying to lick her face, climbing all over her. So gorgeous.
    Anyway, they had to take it away, and heres the worst part, it was confirmed Pit Bull, and pts.
    The look of him as he stared out of the cage, so sad and scared. It made me so upset.

    So, so, so unfair.

    Yes, I watched it also, Bring In the Dogs it was called. And yes, it was a beautiful dog thats for sure. The owner knew it was a Pit-Bull, and he also knew they are illegal in the UK, so why the hell did he take it out into a public park for all to see, hence that poor dog was pts.

    I like that show but that poor dog. I kind of wished he had of been able to get the dog free. The Police Officer had nothing nice to say about the breed whatso ever. It is funny that she carried on about how dangerous the breed is yet she had no problems going up to a strange dog and handling it without a muzzle or catchpole.

    I do not agree with BSL one little bit but I do agree with your comments regarding the owner. I don't have a problem with people owning restricted/banned breeds but for crying out loud, keep them safe!!!
    Then again I also think the people who will happily state on a forum they own an APBT or crossbred when living somewhere they are restricted or banned, and post up pictures of the said dog are also a bit silly. My opinion though!!

    If the person already owned that dog and they brought the law in, then fair enough, hide it away. But I have zero sympathy for people who BUY a dog AFTER the ban is put into place.
    You know the law and you know the risks. Unless you want to keep your dog permanently holed up in your house and yard someone will find out about it.
    And personally... unless you have one heck of a huge yard it's just not fair on the dog.

    Yes, in the end it's only the dogs that suffer, but it makes me angry that moronic people would put a dogs life at risk just because they "like that breed"

    Pei, you might be thinking of another show, this one is 'Send In The Dogs'

    I agree it was the owners stupidity, but the poor happy dog had to pay for his bad actions.

    Isn't it sad that those who disobey the laws are often not the ones who pay the price.

    Im going to disagree here. I own a restricted breed in a state where they are restricted. Yes I 'got' my dog after the restrictions were enforced.

    YES I KNOW HOW TO KEEP MY DOG SAFE!

    No I am not a moron like that wanka was. and Yes I do post pictures of my restricted breed on an open forum. Yes it is known which state I live in.

    I am proud as punch with my girl and her behaviour. I dont hide her from the world and she will never be locked in a backyard!

    Bowing out of this thread before I say something I regret

    I think we should make a distinction here between 'restricted' and 'banned'. I don't see anything wrong with having a restricted breed as long as you're a responsible owner, but if you knowingly get a banned breed then you must know that if found out it will be pts.

    Judge I'm assuming your girl is restricted, not banned?

    Meegs Bailey is an APBT X, I live in S.A. It states in council regulations that I can own her however she must be on s ahort leash and muzzled in public. She must be desexed. I cannot sell, giveaway or advertise her (she must be pts if I cant keep her). She must be kept in a yard that is cages top, sides and bottom so as she cannot jump, dig or climb out.

    It is also approx $10,000 fine for knowingly registering her as a different breed. She is currently registered as a Terrier Cross. Also registered under another council as I am currently awaiting approval to register her at my mums house.

    To everyone else...........I hope you never have to but you would feel differently if it were your breed in this situation.
