Chained-up Pit bulls = abused pit bulls

Post by Pete Smyt » Mon, 03 Feb 1997 04:00:00



Three doors down from me, a redneck keeps a couple of pits
PERMANENTLY chained by the neck by huge rusty chains. They are
chained to an old pickup truck up on blocks, one dog at each end. The
female (unspayed of course) is helpless to protect herself from
roving strays when she comes into heat, and is left chained up to be
repeatedly***d by every passing male dog. I've seen hordes of
puppies of every size, shape and color over there. The rednecks have
a battered old sign tacked to a tree in their front yard "Full ***
Pit Bull Puppies Here".

I suppose Mr. Hinkle will be along any moment saying that there is
nothing wrong with this scenario, that they are most likely on
"properly set up chain rigs" (what a crock, a dog on a "proper" chain
is a still just a chained-up dog).

I suppose these rednecks are also "excellent spokespersons for the
breed"?

This is a good example of how a stupid and cruel dog owner ruins a breed
of dog.  Thank you for posting this.  I hope anyone who comes across a
scenario such as this one has the integrity to call the SPCA.

No, AAMOF there is everything wrong with this scenario, and these
individuals should be severely punished.  This begs a question though - if
you're so upset about it why haven't YOU called the SPCA on them?  I would
have done so a long time ago!  What's the matter with you?  

And no, those aren't "properly set up chain rigs"; that is anything but.
A chain+cabletrolley is a good means of letting a dog out, especially in
neighborhoods where fences are prohibited by neighborhood associations.  
Spending part of the day outside in that manner is no big deal, even
kenneled that way if the dogs otherwise recieve regular attention, proper
care, etc.  What your neighbors are doing is similar to what some
neighbors of mine are doing (we have a common fence border, backyard to
backyard), and the local Humane Society is going to hear about it soon as
I have been carefully observing it for a long time to make sure I have a
handle on what's going on.  No chains, just alone in the fenced backyard
getting practically zero attention and hving to sleep in a shed in 0
degree Michigan weather.  There's a Golden mix and what looks like an
Akita/Sheperd/Husky/LordKnowsWhatElse mix.  Obie spends some time in his
fenced yard, but comes in when he barks to come in.  Frankly, I think the
neighbor dogs only get attention when they're fed and when Obie goes to
the fence and visits with them.  I've been known to sneak doggie biscuits
over there at night... :-)

These particular individuals aren't good spokespersons for anything,
except utter stupidity.  But to extrapolate that situation and apply it to
_all_ APBT fanciers is laughably ridiculous and hopelessly fallacious.  As
it sits now, these individuals would be on _extremely_ thin ice with UKC
and would probably end up being barred for life.  But people that
irresponsible generally aren't in the habit of registering litters
anyway...

So what, Petey Boy?  Down the road from me, a young yuppie couple who
drive BMWs keep two Golden Retrievers confined in their dog crates all
day long, each and every day, day in and day out.  They let the dogs
out into the backyard when they both get home around 7:00PM. for about
15 minutes.  I never see them play with or walk the dogs.  Never.

No one here believes a word you say, Petey Boy.  And I'd kind of like
to see a dog try to "rape" an APBT ***.  

But were this same *** in her own fenced yard, say with free rein of
it, she would be just as available to other passing dogs.  In fact,
many of those so-called "passing dogs" are passing by solely because
they are able to escape so easily from their own fenced yards.  Free
to roam their areas, usually ending up as either road kill or in a
shelter somewhere.

Well, these folks certainly don't sound like very ethical or
responsible breeders, but ethics and responsibility aren't dependent
upon the breed being bred, they're dependent upon whether the breeders
have a clue.  Change the sign to read "Full *** Pekapoo Puppies
Here,"  place the sign in front of a house with a Lexus and a Explorer
in the driveway, and you have a better glimpse of the problem.

Why only pick on unethical and irresponsible "pit bull" breeders and
not simply unethical and irresponsible dog breeders?  Unless you're
just a freakin' doofus with an agenda, that is.

And a puppy or a dog stuck in his 2' by 2' by 3' dog crate all day
long, each and every day, day in and day out, is what?  Happy?  Geeez.

Give me a good ol' redneck any day over a bigoted, racist, ignorant,
stupid, whiny, hypocritical, chicken-shit yuppie.

I agree that these people are irresponsible and should not be owning any
breed of dog, least of all, a Pit Bull, but I disagree with the idea
that a chained dog = an abused dog.

My dogs have been tied up on occasion, and while I feel that the
situation is not the ideal one, it is certainly not abusive as long as
the dog gets quality care and attention.  A short-haired dog may need
heavier insulation in the kennel if it stays outdoors in cold weather,
but as long as it is fed properly and given lots of attention, there is
no abuse, as far as I can see.

The cons of chaining are that the dog may not have adequate protection
from other animals, that the dog might get tangled up in its chain, that
the dog might not be the kind of dog suited to chaining due to size,
temperament, etc.  All of these, however, are given due consideration by
the responsible owner and steps are taken to prevent undue stress.

But by and large, chaining is often many people's alternative to letting
the dog outdoors loose, and more tragedies have surely been caused by
loose dogs owned by people who "loved" them too much to control them
then by people who responsibly chained their dogs and made sure that
both the dogs and the public were reasonably safe from each other.

I see, you don't know what sarcasm is....  The point being for the
literal minded - it would be basically impossible for a dog to "rape"
a APBT ***!

Jeesh!

Sarcasm eludes you, eh?  No.  I "fantasize" about being where you're
at ... you know, standing right there in front of you, Petey.  Real
close and personal.

That I do.  But I'm already being treated, thank you very much.  My
psychotherapist, Dr. George***el, the finest psychotherapist under
the sun, recently informed me that I suffer from one of the rarest of
psychological maladies:normalcy.  Horrible, isn't it?  

Petey, I'm sure it must be more fun to be an ignorant, bigoted,
racist, brain-dead white-supremicist though.  Hell, you get to wear
those pretty white pointed hats with the big ear flaps, don't you?  I
thought so.  When you're man enough to wear them at, say, the next
Million Man March, then most folks will stop laughing at you.

Hey, when you have your cross-burnings, Petey, has anyone ever gotten
to close to the fire wearing those silly looking robes?  (Do you wear
regular panty-hose under those robes, or garter belts and stockings?)

Given that the aggregate I.Q. of your whole *** klavern of kooks
must approach, what, 75, that sounds like it might happen pretty
often.  Surely you must have your own volunteer fire department, eh?

I'm going to keep the fantasies I have, and keep praying they come
true.

Note:  This is for all the other lobotomized loonies out there who
think a *** can be***d.  They can't.  When ***es are in heat,
they're usually after the boys as much as the boys are after them.

And as far as trying to have sex with an APBT *** who is not in
heat, you'll have to ask Petey about that.  But you'll have to wait
until he gets out of the hospital.  Right now he's got too many tubes
sticking out of his body.  Heh-heh-heh.

What's all this talk about forcing one's attention upon ***es? You
just have to take them out for a nice dinner, buy them, say a jeweled
collar and introduce them to your deranged uncle Ned. I am sure this
will put an end to these unhealthy fantasies, and Ned will do his biz in
a bag, thereafter.
