Jonny Justice – a Former Vick Dog with a New Leash on Life

Jonny Justice

This former Vick dog is amazing…the video doesn’t mention it, but he was a member of the team at Paws for Tales, a group of dogs who help children learn to read by providing a “safe” and non-judgmental audience for those who are shy or have difficulty trying to learn in front of people.  His owner withdrew him from the program after another pittie in the program was unfairly – and illegally – discriminated against by a librarian in Pennsylvania.

BSL — Why it’s Just Not Right

Would you really be able to positively identify a dog as a pit bull?  Maybe not as easily or accurately as you may think.  Take this simple test and see how you score:

Did you get it right? We’d be surprised if you did!  Which raises a whole new set of questions and concerns.  Hence, “The American Bar Association urges against breed-specific laws” — just one quote from this article pointed out by one of our readers.  Check it out in its entirety:

Rethinking Jessica Biel

We have to admit, we don’t always have the highest regard for a large majority of the Hollywood type and their off-screen escapades (although most of the four-pawed stars do seem relatively grounded).  But it takes a smart, intuitive and deep person to be able to love and relate to a pit bull…and to commit to all that responsible pittie ownership involves.  Having said that, despite some of the tabloid tattling in times past, we must concede that there are obviously brains (and a pittieful heart) behind this beauty after all.  See for yourself:

Lovers Not Fighters

Breeding a dog to be a fighter is different than breeding it for other traits.  There’s nothing about herding or retrieving or pulling a sled that goes against a dog’s internal drives.  But creating a dog that wants to attack other dogs is at odds with a dog’s entire developmental background in which it has been instilled with the instinct to work together with other dogs in a pack in order to survive.
