Dog Fighting Rings – Cruelty not Sport


Dogs Deserve Better

These beautiful dogs should never be forced to fight


Pit Bulls and other dogs are victims of the selfishness of humanity. Untold numbers of Pit Bulls and other breeds suffer great pain and death – brutally used in dog fights for the entertainment of humans.

Why do some humans think that they have a right to do this to another living, breathing, feeling animal such as a dog?!

Why do governments in so called developed and civilized countries not unilaterally criminalize dog fighting?

When we allow the practice of Dog Fighting to continue we show that man has learned nothing over the ages of assigning value and intelligence to other species.

Enlighten yourself – learn, grow, evolve – I challenge all Governments to stop promoting dog fights and thus the pain and cruel suffering of these defenseless dogs, instead open your eyes and see what dogs can teach you about being a better human being!

Dog’s don’t get to choose who they live with and what is done to them. Their welfare and their lives are at the mercy of human beings – will they end up with someone who truly respects and loves them or with someone who uses and abuses them – then discards their life as if it is trash. This means that we need be very serious about  protecting them.

Dogs are intelligent, sensitive animals. Each dog has its own unique personality. The full ranges of personalities we see in humans exist in dogs – the main difference being that cruelty is unique to humans…this attribute does not exist in dogs. There have been many well known and respected people throughout history who have said that humans who endured in the face of great adversity carry many scars but it is these same people who have the most to contribute to society. I believe that the same can be said for the dog.

All dogs have so much that they are willing to share with humanity. If we are willing to open our minds to see, we can learn so much from them about ourselves. They can help us be more aware of our own behaviour and give us a second chance to grow into better, wiser and happier individuals. When you help a dog it is not just the dog that gets a second lease on life and a new opportunity…it is also the human.

Dogs are not plant crops they are living, breathing, feeling animals no different than a human. Except dogs are never cruel – but humans are!

My own rescued Boxer x Pit Bull is an one such example. He was purchased by people that wanted a tough dog. They abused him and messed him up so badly – they surrendered him eventually to me – after he was abused from 8 weeks of age to 8 months of age…it has taken me 2 years to undo the damage that was done to him!

If he had not made it to me he would have been euthanized – he was aggressive to a red zone state and no shelter would take him. The people that did this to him walked away – no penalty. Robbie my Boxer x Pit Bull and me worked very hard to repair the damage that humans did. Many dogs never even get this second chance!

Do you think this is fair, do you think this is right? I don’t. It breaks my heart. I do not believe that humans are the most intelligent species on earth.

Robbie my Boxer x Pit Bull deserved what all the dogs who are maimed and die in dog fights every day deserve – a chance to be the gentle, loving dog they were meant to be!

Each dog, like every human has its own personality, likes and dislikes, fears and things that they anticipate with their own form of joy. Have humility and empathy – recognize that dogs are worthy of proper care and consideration. Please help make a profound difference in changing the future – making it a better place for dogs.

What a dog wants most is to have the opportunity to live the life it deserves to live – to be loved and to give love like only a dog can.

You have the opportunity to be a decent human being – to provide leadership not stupidity and unfathomable cruelty.
