Of the 100 Pitbulls “rescued” in OK, it looks like most will be killed without individual evaluation on their temperaments by a qualified individual. I had hoped for better for these neglected dogs but it looks like they will suffer the same unearned fate as the Houston Pitbulls, and so many others:
The adult dogs were so hungry and thirsty that at first they were not aggressive when officers and volunteers began feeding and watering them. But as they grew stronger, they began to grow more aggressive not only with the handlers but with the other dogs.
“I can’t put them out with a family,” the sheriff said.
Well no, you can’t put them with any old family but you can place them with a well matched, responsible owner who understands the responsibilities of dog ownership. Which are the same circumstances for placing any dog.
Every dog deserves a fair evaluation.
