Jager the red-nose American Pitbull Terrier at 5 years old— "APBTs have received a horrible reputation due to misleading media and a few bad dog owners, which is now why we have bans on this breed. Not only do people want to ban this breed, the Marine Corps have deemed this a dangerous breed and have banned them from all Marine bases. This I have a huge problem with considering I can die for this country serving in the Marines to help protect people but I can't own a family member that can protect my own family while I am deployed. Thanks for the support to the ones that helped put these bans in place."
Ray's mom here. First let me say I would be saying the same thing if this was 6 poodles. There is a video of a young child getting ready to feed 6 hungry pit bulls making the rounds on the internet. Many people have been sharing to to show how safe pitties actually are. I have a totally different take on it. I am frankly disturbed by what I saw. Why would anyone allow a child to feed that many dogs in one place? . Most multiple dog household separate the dogs for feeding, if only by a few feet. Here at the sanctuary, dogs in multiple dog runs are always separated for meal time. Why? Because food is a trigger that can quickly cause aggression. All it would take is for one dog to act out for all of the dogs to become agitated and dangerous.
