Breed Bans by WatergazerWolf Breed Bans by WatergazerWolf
In Chicago Illinois, pit bull fights are on the rise, along with negative public sentiment about the breed and the ignorance of it. In light of serious recent attacks on children, the breed may now get banned because of fear alone. A dog is like any other, bred and trained to do certain things...pits are not automatic killers. People want the breed phased out of exsistance...extinct, even if they do accept that training and treatment makes the dog what it is...because they fear that so long as the pits survive as a breed there will always be attacks on people. By that same logic then, guns should no longer be created, no matter that the owner of one may practice it and get licenses and be a good citizen, taking every care with it. America's number one breed has been twisted by a few...but perhaps it is the minds of the ignorant that is even more so. And because of it, a lot of good owners may be forced to part with their dogs or leave, and thousands of pits euthenized. Who is getting punished here? Certainly not the pit fighters...just upright owners and bully-looking canines.

THIS IMAGE I RELEASE TO PUBLIC DOMAIN which means you can copy and paste it anywhere without my permission. It is free to use and is posted here as the full-size file. Create your own prints, t-shirts, mugs, whatever. Cross post it into your own galleries, add it to favorites, and onto your own web pages. Just please get the message out there!

I recommend the DVD documentary "Off the Chain" if you are looking for more information about the wildfire spread of dog fighting in the USA, and the war going on to fight it...or not.

The style is loosly inspired by: [link]

I agree with these so much! I just got a Brindle Pit / German Shepherd mix puppy and he broke his collar and ran after this little doxon that was walking by on a leash, the woman freaked out and all my pup wanted to do was play. You could tell by his tail wagging and his posture of lowering his front with his rear in the air going all wiggly-crazy from his tail.

No dog is mean, it's owner does that to them. I was raised with rot's, they were the nicest thing until they got old and decrepit and couldn't see, hear, or smell to well.

Breed bans on dogs is just so stupid. As I mentioned elsewhere, I had the most terrific pit bull dog for 16 years.
I think the only animal that needs breed banning is humans.

Blame the trainer, not the biter.

There is always something nasty behind "The blood-thirsty dog ripped our little angel to shreds"- stories, something nasty about the trainer.

Hmm, I'll see what I can do. I know I have been meaning to get the files better updated and less corrupted...these were done before I have Illustrator and a decent Photoshop skill so they need some revamping but I'll look and see if I got this not on black.
