11-year old rushes to the defense of Pit Bulls

March 30, 2017

Pit Bull Standing

Check out this sweet letter to the editor from a young one named Ryleigh Johnson. Sometimes, pre-teens have more sense than we so-called adults do.

To the editor:

I am 11 years old and I love all dogs. In your “Pit Bull Bites Jefferson County Sheriff’s Arm” article, why couldn’t you just write, “Dog Bites Jefferson County Sheriff’s Arm?” Pit bulls are mistaken for mean, fighting dogs. They can actually be a loyal and sweet breed – they are my favorite.

If a golden retriever bit a sheriff you would not point out the breed like you did for the pit bull. They don’t need any more bad publicity. We need to work together to change the way people think about pit bulls so we can save them instead of making people more scared of them.

Many pit bulls are euthanized because of people like you. You should write an article about the next Chihuahua who bites someone.

I’m not sure which paper this appeared in, but kudos to the writer!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Another Dangerous Pit Bull

January 18, 2017

Pit Duckling Bunnies

Since I shared that story a week or so ago about the Pit Bull that attacked when he was forced to wear a sweater, I feel like I have to show how sweet they can be. I hate putting out bad publicity about a breed that is so misunderstood, so I may be going overboard in the other direction.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
