Pitbulls or Owners who do you blame

         I love this picture and I want to dedicate it to Craven and her sociopath followers !


You guys just never give up ! You try to convince people that your some type of authority on Pitbulls & animal behavior but anyone who actually works with animals knows all you do is spread hate & false information on these pages in order to justify your witch hunt. It is truly astonishing how many otherwise progressive people consider their prejudice against pit bulls to be perfectly reasonable, when the data shows it isn't. Pit bulls are subjected to unimaginabl cruelty & neglect where they are subjected to every kind of violence and then, at the end of it,euthanized in shelters at shockingly high rates, then thanks to main stream media and people like you who promote lies and fear allot of landlords won't rent to the families who own Pitbulls & then there's BSL what a joke , worthless restrictions that do nothing to improve public safety.

The newest comprehensive examination of dog bite statistics, put out in December by the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, looked at what factors tended to lead to fatal dog bites. These include a dog not being spayed or neutered, dogs being "kept isolated from regular positive human interactions," away from the rest of the family, and dog owners having histories of abusing their pets notice it says nothing about being BORN KILLERS or the problem being that they are GRIPPERS or the fact that they are owned by NUTTERS. Maybe you haven't been reading the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association.  Or maybe you have been reading the near-constant stream of scary newspaper stories ginning up your fear.
A recent article in Time magazine called "The Problem With Pit Bulls" is among the worst of them. Charlotte Alter, the author of the Time piece, goes so far as to say that pit bull attacks are on the rise because of Hurricane Katrina, which is both a silly claim and a preposterous one: there's no evidence that pit bull attacks are on the rise at all. The problem is not the pit bulls, nor is it specific to any one breed. The problem is that there is little consequence for being an irresponsible dog owner. People like you who are providing questionable statistics and sources just exacerbates the problem. Because if we were to believe your twisted facts and stories it would mean that the pictures of all the fighting dogs on this page cut off their own ears called their manager to set up a fight went and got a personal trainer to get in shape and then threw themselves in the ring and decided they would fight to the death! Sounds kind of ridiculous right ? Well that's what reading your pages sound like to people who actually have knowledge and experience with Pitbulls.

  Might want consider a new hobby like going to the park and feeding the pigeons or something

 Everything that's violent or blood thirsty in their past was all done in service to man.

The most feared dog is now one loved by most

The town of Winthrop Ma like many across the Country for many years had a restriction on Pitbulls that stoped you from owning one in that town. MassPaws a rescue group from the area has been working to have that reversed along with dog people from Winthrop.  I got to
meet the Winthrop dog officer through Oceanview Kennels a local shelter where I donate time they are the pound for the surrounding city's . Well there's a woman from Oceanview who people call the doglady and she is a Pitbull advocate who had been working with Mark for a while and had his attention on the matter and we had quite a few good conversations about the dogs their breed and the impact of the owner on the dogs. One day he shows up with a 75 pound Black Pit mix ( DUKE pictured left ) he had found this dog on a beach and took him to that citys pound thinking someone was looking for him but it was so late that night he couldn't do it till the morning he has a Pug and another dog cant remember what kind but he was nervous about bringing the dog in the house but didnt want to leave the dog outside so he leashed him and walked him in well there was no blood thirsty flesh ripping attack there was just a dog that wanted to be patted & play fetch just like his dogs.  Well the dog made such an impact on him he kept calling and checking if anyone had come to claim him
 because if nobody comes looking for them within ten days they euthanize them. Well ten days passed and nobody claimed him but Mark went down paid for his shots and his release called us up to
see if we could find him a home and of course we said yes and soon after the ban was lifted. Now we have been doing dog days in Winthrop to promote responsible ownership and to show pitbulls are just dogs that want to be treated like any other dog. We have been welcomed  there by people of all ages and have been interviewed by the local cabel network and all who we have encountered have given us high praise.

We had two celebrity dogs in attendance this week Lilly the Pitbull who lost her leg saving her owner from being struck by a train and there was Bruin who I took there was accused of attacking someone and shot in the face by police even though he showed no aggression when police arrived  and then come to find out the boy who said he was attacked by Bruin had lied , he was trying to break in the house where the dog lived saw the dog and ran leaving the back door open which allowed Bruin to get out of the house and that's when the police pulled up to find him sitting on his own front porch and decided that shooting him was the proper response. This dog is a about a hundred pounds but is as gentle of a dog as any that I have met in my life even after being shot in the face he still is happy to meet everyone he comes across a great example of a Pitbull Terrier here are some photos of a the walk it was a good time with guess what no incidents because thats what happens with responsible owners.

   Little Tan and white guy is Luke he is up for adoption he is being fostered by two girls who have a chawawa a Golden lab and a cat and he is great with all of them 100 % house trained and happy to meet everyone we have come across he is a perfect dog to use as a therapy dog he is one of my favorites

                 Me and Coal I fostered her for a couple months she was almost my third dog
                 but she got a great home they love her so much they want another one.

                                                        here are the rest of the pics

                               The one sticking out her tounge was born deaf but she is very
                       smart and has learned to understand sign language she loves our dog days.
                                     We are at the local cabel station being interviewed.                                  

                           All breeds are welcome to come and have had many other dogs come
                                           out and enjoy the attention that we attract.
                                Although his name is Bruin he supports all Boston teams.

                                     Hard to keep up with only three legs so she took a break
                                    where and when ever she wanted and thats just fine by us.



2012 the year in review

      It's was a good year for the underdog


                                  Dogs Rescued This Year


 This year in the New England area people have been more active in neutering and less people have been breeding so we have had a noticeable drop in dogs being taken in at the shelters which have been overwhelmed in the past years with the amount of homeless dogs they had received . 

 Another high point when the Governor passed a law where no dog shall be judged based on breed so any law passed would apply to a Golden Retriever as well as a Pitbull and thats how it should be every dog judged by their actions not their breed.

This year almost everywhere BSL has been put in action it has failed miserably and has been reversed all but a few stubborn places have admitted that banning Pitbulls did nothing to increase safety and was costly and almost impossible to enforce I want to thank all the people who helped us by fostering or by helping us to find homes for these dogs you have all done a great job and because of it things are starting to turn around.

                           Darla below wearing the clown hat
                  was a special case she lived  in Dee
                 from Mass Paws car for two months 
                 But she never gave up on her & she is
                   now in a great home.


These pictures are just some of the dogs that were placed in homes because of everyone's hard work and dedication .

                                             Thank you all

Massachusetts Gov Deval Patrick repeals BSL

Massachusetts: New state law will nullify cities’ BSL

With New Bedford Animal Control Officer Manny Maciel by his side today, Gov. Deval Patrick signed a new, broad-based animal control bill into law, that, among its many provisions, prevents the regulation of dogs based solely on breed.

Stating clearly that “No city or town shall regulate dogs in a manner that is specific to breed,” the legislation ends debate in New Bedford and elsewhere on whether pits bulls should be banned.
The law further states that “no dog shall be deemed dangerous … based upon the breed of such dog.”
Reports out of Lowell and Worcester, MA, indicate that the breed-specific ordinances in both cities—and by extension, any other MA city with BSL—will be nullified by the new MA state law when it goes into effect on October 31. The new state law prohibits municipalities from regulating dogs based on breed.

Many attorneys in MA seem to agree that MA “home rule” does not allow city ordinances to conflict with state law. Even if cities do not officially repeal their BSL, the laws will be preempted and nullified by the new state law when it goes into effect.

Jonathan S. Rankin, a Framingham-based lawyer and chairman of the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Animal Law Practice Group, said the new law says communities can make additional ordinances as long as the language is not breed-specific.
