Re: “Dogs Reunited at Idaho Humane Society on First Anniversary of Rescue From Triple-Homicide Scene

Darrin Stephens,
In our county it is reported that 95% of chained dogs are pit bulls. That number seems to be representational across the United States. The pit bull became popular among uneducated low income individuals in the last 10+ years as a status symbol like a cadillac or a clothing brand like Sean John. These people care nothing for the dog itself and chain it with no social interaction, attention and usually very little food or water or even a proper shelter. This is by no fault of the dog just as Cadillac can't control who buys its cars. This same thing happened to the Rottweiler and the Doberman in the 70s , and 80s. Chained dogs become aggressive and unstable and are much more like to bite because dogs are social animals according to experts and the CDC. This doesn't even take into account the duds out of this group who will then be trained to fight. Some of these dogs are able to be helped and saved when they are found. Some are not. The damage was too great. Many are never found or heard of...unless a child wonders too close. So you see, this a people problem not a dog problem just like many things in our world. And the sooner you realize that the sooner you can be part of the solution instead of thowing hate around that helps not dog or person.
